EcoSurg® Disposable patient positioners are used in over 20 Million surgical procedures per year in the United States alone. These foam shapes are used to properly position patients in a variety of positions, ensuring safety, comfort, and adequate access to the surgical site. When disposed of, however, these products are harmful to the environment as they are made from materials that consist largely of petroleum-based derivatives. These compounds and the other hazardous byproducts from their production are not only harmful to the environment, but also incur higher handling and disposal costs that are inevitably passed on to the Customer.
Our proprietary, patent pending line of EcoSurg® Patient Positioners are manufactured using an alternative foam comprised of renewable composites. The production of this environmentally friendly foam results in a significantly smaller carbon footprint than the current standard of care. As 6,000 Hospitals and 5,000 Surgery Centers across the country continue to pursue greener initiatives, EcoSurg® is well-positioned to help supply this trend.
