Absolute Prone Patient Positioning

Poor positioning of the head and neck can leave your patient with post-operative complications, from mild facial swelling to blindness (POVL). These complications can have devastating consequences for your patient and could ultimately lead to costly litigation for the Hospital or Trust.

The Absolute Prone-Lite Helmet and Mirror are used in conjunction with  Absolute Helmet Angle Pads to ensure an optimum neutral neckline is achieved. The risk of periorbital and intraocular pressure and oedema can be significantly reduced by using Absolute Prone Face Support Cushions, which are inserted into the helmet.
