Physics. It's how TrenGuard® works.
"An object at rest tends to remain at rest unless an external force acts upon it." -Newton
TrenGuard's rigid support frame is fixed to the OR table accessory rails with wide-based rail clamps.
Soft foam components, anchored to the frame, secure the patient.
A paper by surgeon and anesthesiologist, Dr. Hewer, describes this unique restraint technique and explains how it also eliminates the risk of brachial plexus neuropathy.
- Frame installation < 20 seconds
- Positioning patient & tilt test < 4.5 minutes
- Remove & clean reusable components < 90 seconds
Two nursing professionals provide first-hand accounts of how TrenGuard is easier to use, more efficient, and safer for patients
than alternatives positioning devices for Trendelenburg.
