Positioning pads

All our ESWELL positioning pads are designed to ensure optimal positioning of the patient and at the same time reducing the risk of developing pressure injuries. This is ensured by combining up to seven different types of viscoelastic and HR foams. Some ESWELL positioning pads are designed with up to three different foam types.

Viscoelastic foam is a high-tech material originally developed by NASA. It ab­sorbs body heat and molds itself gently to the body, and thus gives the body improved support during surgery. The pressure distributing properties of the foam provide unique patient comfort and at the same time it ensures a correct anatomical position for the surgeon. 

The cover is a waterproof and breathing De­cu-Tex© material, which mainly consists of polyurethane. For optimal hygiene all cov­ers are fully-welded and are fitted with a water-resistant zipper, which makes it possible to remove and wash (up to 95°C). The zipper is protected by the cover in order to reduce irritation of the skin and to prevent liquids entering the foam.

The ESWELL positioning pads are manufactured in several different colours. Some hospitals use colours to classify and categorize the pads for different positionings, and other hospitals use colours to identify which department they belong to.
