Types of Patient Positioners

Patient positioners are classified into different types on the basis of body parts for which they are used. They are as follows:
  • Arm Positioners: Arm positioners assist in positioning the arm properly and maintaining correct alignment for different medical requirements. Their contoured design keeps the arm in place for fast recovery. 

  • Foot Positioners: Foot positioners aid in proper foot positioning and reduce the pressure exerted on the foot or the ankle. They provide gentle support to the foot and the ankle. 

  • Head and Neck Positioners: Head and neck positioners provide gentle support and correct alignment to the head and the neck. They are designed anatomically to rest the patient's head comfortably. 

  • Knee Positioners: Knee positioners help in keeping the legs in a comfortable position for fast recovery from a surgery, especially lower body procedures. 

  • Body Positioning Wedges: Body positioners help in aligning and positioning the body in a supine, prone, or lateral position. They can be used for a variety of medical procedures. 

  • Bolsters or Positioning Rolls: Bolsters provide support under the different areas of the body. They can be used for both clinical treatment and home use. 

  • Heel and Elbow Protectors: Heel and elbow protectors reduce shear, pressure, and friction on the heels and elbows. They help in preventing dermal ulcers. 

  • Hip Abduction Pillows: Hip abduction pillows are used after a hip surgery to prevent the dislocation of the hip joint.
