  • Descripción del producto
    Maquet Getinge Group, Adjustable Positioning Elements (1007.28A0) Manufacturer: Maquet GmbH, Germany. Patient positioners. || The MAQUET Adjustable Positioning Elements are designed for the placement and positioning of patients in the prone position immediately before, during and after surgical interventions as well as for examination and treatment. With a patient in the prone position, the adjustable positioning elements stabilize the upper body while simultaneously relieving the abdominal region in the vertical position with regard to the spine and the large blood vessels there. This positioning method is thus suitable for interventions on the spine with dorsal access to prevent positioning-specific compression with resulting bleeding tenancies. They are made up of the following components: (2) chest and (2) hip elements with padding which are secured in a fixed arrangement to the frames and can be adjusted in all directions independently of each other.
