The Pink Pad®

Safer, Easier Patient Transfer + Positioning in Trendelenburg & Reverse Trendelenburg

First in Patient Safety

Breathable open-cell material

Empowering OR Leaders to Focus on What Matters Most

An evidence-based best practice for reducing postoperative erythema, and the risk of nerve damage in steep Trendelenburg.

The only air-assisted solution with a proven Trendelenburg positioning material that maintains contact with patients as well as OR table surfaces.

The safest, most effective solution for reducing patient sliding in steep Trendelenburg; even for heavy, high-BMI patients.

Proven Pressure Management

In a study of 15 subjects ranging from 16-54 BMI (average BMI 35.5), the Pink Pad provided an average peak pressure reduction of 43%.

US Government Data2 show Hospital-Acquired Pressure Injuries (HAPIs):
  • Are the direct cause of death for roughly 60,000 patients each year
  • Add an estimated $43,180 in costs per hospital stay
  • Result in more than 17,000 medical lawsuits, annually (the second most common claim after wrongful death)
  • Increase hospital stays by nine days on average

Images shown are of the same 30.85 BMI subject, on a solid surface, with and without the Pink Pad. Tests were conducted with an Xsensor Sensor Pad Model PX 100:48.144.02

The Material Difference

Breathable open-cell material

The Pink Pad's unique material was developed and refined over a period of several years. Beyond preventing unwanted patient movement in steep Trendelenburg, the Pink Pad offers patients unparalleled skin protection. Unique softness, breathability, immersion, and envelopment characteristics protect against HAPI (Hospital-Acquired Pressure Injury) formation.

Optimally-balanced material properties are a leading reason why the Pink Pad has emerged as the clinically-preferred Trendelenburg positioning solution in top hospitals around the world.

Establish a Best-Practice Standard of Care

Prevent Patient Sliding

Prevent Patient Sliding

Safe patient positioning in steep Trendelenburg can only be achieved when patient sliding is eliminated. Doing so helps hospitals comply with CMS guidelines for avoiding positioning-related injuries and Never Events.

The Pink Pad is the safest, most effective solution for reducing patient sliding in steep Trendelenburg; even for heavy, high-BMI patients.

Reduce HAPI Risk

Reduce HAPI Risk

The Pink Pad was designed specifically for direct-skin contact. Its unique material is breathable, moisture wicking, insulative, soft-to-the-touch, immersive, and enveloping.

Independent studies prove that the Pink Pad reduces erythema compared to other positioning solutions.3

No nerve injury

Eliminate Brachial Plexus Injury Risk

The Pink Pad is clinically proven to reduce post-operative pain in surgical patients.4 It functions without placing pressure on the head, neck, or shoulders; thereby eliminating the risk of preventable nerve injuries.

No Tape

Improve Infection Control

Single-use designs improve workflow and, most importantly, eliminate cross-contamination and Hospital-Acquired Infection (HAI) risks. By removing the need for custom assembly, patient-safety best practices can be standardized. Avoiding the use of tape in patient positioning helps protect against equipment damage, and improves infection-control within the OR.

Surgical site infections account for nearly 22% of the more than 700,000 HAIs that occur annually in the United States.5

A Breakthrough for OR Staff Safety


Protect Your Team. Protect Your Patients.

The Pink Pad Air-Assist helps prevent workplace injury by introducing a safer, more ergonomic, and lift-free patient transfer + positioning system.

“The most common work-related musculoskeletal injuries among perioperative nurses are lower back problems related to patient handling tasks.” - AORN 9/2023

More than 60% of perioperative nurses experience lower back musculoskeletal injuries.” - AORN 9/2023

  • Trendelenburg + : An additional distal air-channel increases transfer and repositioning ease, especially for heavy/high-BMI patients
  • EXT + Trendelenburg: Full OR table-length patient protection in both supine and Trendelenburg, plus maximum transfer and repositioning capabilities

What Our Customers are Saying

The Pink Pad Air-Assist is the PERFECT solution for our patients and staff. Patients do not move on the Pink Pad until we want them to; at which point it’s very easy to reposition or transfer even our heaviest subjects. I’ll be using this product on all of my patients moving forward.

— Matthew Davis, MD, Bariatric Surgery
     Memphis, TN
The Pink Pad Air-Assist has helped us in a number of important ways: 1) much easier transfer/repositioning of our heavy patients, 2) eliminating the need to interrupt our busy staff to help transfer patients elsewhere in the OR, and 3) maybe most importantly, doing all of this while still providing the patient protection and Trendelenburg security that the Pink Pad is known for.

Meet AORN Guidelines
and Staff Safety Benchmarks

“Moving patients can also contribute to injury. When moving patients, use assistive technologies
to help prevent staff injuries and keep patients safe. These might include air-assisted transfer devices…
- AORN 9/2023

AORN Recommendations
for Safe Patient Handling and Mobility

  • “Select patient lift equipment that minimizes the physical forces required to move the patient. [Recommendation]” Section 4.3.1
  • “Use assistive technology if any team member is required to lift more than 35 lb (16 kg) of the patient’s weight. [Recommendation]” Section 5.2.1
  • “Use assistive technology specifically designed for the task to be performed (eg, lateral transfer) according to the manufacturer’s IFU. [Recommendation]” Section 5.2.2
  • “Use… …assistive technology (eg, air-assisted transfer device, mechanical lift) for lateral transfer of a patient if indicated. [Recommendation]” Section 5.4.1
  • “The number of manual lifting tasks should be minimized. [Recommendation]” Section 6.1.3
  • “The health care organization should provide the number of team members and assistive devices needed to safely move, position, or prep patients based on the algorithms in the AORN Ergonomic Tools (See Section 5). [Recommendation]” Section 2.3
  • “Identify methods to reduce the physical requirements of high-risk SPHM tasks (eg, positioning, transfers, static postures) in the perioperative environment. [Recommendation]” Section 2.3.2
  • “Identify and allocate funding to implement and sustain the SPHM program based on business-case and return-on-investment analytics. [Recommendation]” Section 2.6
  • “Based on the ergonomic analysis, select types of patient handling equipment (eg, air-assisted transfer mattresses, mechanical lift equipment) and accessories (eg, slings) for use in the perioperative area in collaboration with the health care organization’s product evaluation team, policies, and procedures. [Recommendation]” Section 4.3
