The Material Difference


The Pink Pad's unique material was developed and refined over a period of several years. It offers unparalleled softness, breathability, immersion, and envelopment characteristics that protect patients against HAPIs (Hospital Acquired Pressure Injuries).
 


Innovative Design


Pink Reverse-T Seat Example
The increasing prevalence of bariatric surgery brings with it a need for new, more advanced solutions for safe patient positioning. Unique designs maximize anatomical support during surgery and contribute to improved post-op patient comfort.

The Pink Reverse-T Kit is a comprehensive system designed specifically for heavy, high-BMI patients; addressing patient safety challenges on a number of fronts.

Simple, Safe Solutions that Help Patient Safety Advocates Meet

AORN Guidelines & Recommendations

See Sharp

Official AORN Guidelines Recommend1


  • Supporting the patient’s sacrum reduces the potential for injury.”
  • Use a padded foot board. Using a padded foot board helps prevent the patient from sliding downward on the OR bed and reduces the potential for injury to the perineal and tibial nerves from foot and ankle flexion.”


  • “Assessing and monitoring the patient’s feet during the procedure confirms physiologic alignment and placement against the foot board, prevents rotation and increased pressure on the ankle, and may help to prevent circulatory or nerve damage.”
  • “A standardized product selection process assists in the selection of functional and reliable products that are safe, cost-effective, and environmentally preferable and that promote quality care, as well as decreases duplication or rapid obsolescence.”

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

Prevent Patient Sliding

Prevent Patient Sliding

Safe patient positioning in reverse 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 Reverse-T Kit is the safest, most effective solution for reducing patient sliding in reverse 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, while infection control risks (i.e. taping) can be avoided.

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

Reduce Time, Costs and Unnecessary Risk

Stopwatch

Cost Effectiveness

  • Set up time under one minute saves your hospital up to $1,900 per procedure*
    *Based on OR billable time of $100/minute and an average set up time of 20 minutes for competitive systems.

Patient Safety Improvements

  • The risk of pressure injuries increases by 40% every 30 minutes of surgery6
  • For each hour of the duration of surgery, the risk of SSI increased by 34%7
  • Prolonged anesthesia duration is associated with increased odds of complication, venous thromboembolism, increased length of stay, and return to operating room.8

Clinical Evidence


  • “Postoperative erythema was significantly less common on the Pink Pad…” 9
  • “There was significantly less movement on the Pink Pad at all anatomical landmarks…” 9

What Our Customers are Saying...

We recently performed bariatric surgery on a 900+ lb patient. You can imagine how challenging it was for our team to maintain safe positioning throughout the procedure. The Pink Reverse-T Kit allowed us to both secure the patient and avoid pressure injuries. We really put this product to the test and it passed with flying colors.

With patients weighing 450 lbs or more, and BMIs in excess of 65, safe positioning can be a real challenge. Xodus Medical’s Pink Reverse-T Kit not only prevented our patients from sliding, but did so safely.
