The TrenGuard™ "Speed Bump" bolster is rated to safely support patients up to 550 lbs in Trendelenburg as extreme as 40 degrees.
The industry exclusive "Speed bump" bolster, positioned comfortably under the notch of the neck, serves to prevent the combination of weight, gravity and an extreme inclination from acting on the patient in a manner that would cause them to slide.
It is the broad Trapezius muscle, in direct contact with the bolster, that safely supports the body mass.
Dr. Hewer's paper describes this unique restraint technique and explains how it also eliminates the risk of brachial plexus neuropathy.
The device is so easy and intuitive to use that the positioning staff often becomes comfortable and expert with the process after only one or two procedures.
Procedural efficiency 15 second setup
Actual Positioning Time < 2.5 minutes

The only Trendelenburg Restraint on the market that has never had a report of a patient sliding
