Title
(EN) PATIENT POSITIONING SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR POSITIONING A PATIENT DURING A SURGICAL PROCEDURE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE POSITIONNEMENT DE PATIENT ET PROCÉDÉ POUR POSITIONNER UN PATIENT PENDANT UNE PROCÉDURE CHIRURGICALE
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus (10) and method are provided for positioning a patient on a surgical platform (100). The apparatus includes an elongated flexible web (20) and a plurality of extension straps (24) for connecting the apparatus to the surgical (platform 100). Each extension strap includes a connector configured to connect the apparatus to the surgical platform. Adjustment mechanisms (30) allow the length of the extension straps to be adjusted to vary the tension in the web. In accordance with the method, the medical professional selects the desired position and orientation of the patient on the surgical platform and then manipulates the patient into the desired position and orientation. A retention device is connected to one side of a surgical platform (100) and then placed over the patient at the appropriate portion of the patient. A second end of the retention device is connected to a second side of the surgical platform (100). The retention device is then adjusted to increase the tension in the retention device.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil (10) et un procédé pour positionner un patient sur une plate-forme chirurgicale (100). L'appareil comprend une bande souple allongée (20) et une pluralité de sangles de prolongement (24) pour relier l'appareil à la plate-forme chirurgicale (100). Chaque sangle de prolongement comprend un connecteur configuré pour relier l'appareil à la plate-forme chirurgicale. Des mécanismes d'ajustement (30) permettent d'ajuster la longueur des sangles de prolongement pour modifier la tension dans la bande. Selon le procédé, le professionnel médical sélectionne la position et l'orientation souhaitées du patient sur la plate-forme chirurgicale, puis manipule le patient dans la position et l'orientation souhaitées. Un dispositif de rétention est relié à un premier côté d'une plate-forme chirurgicale (100), et est placé ensuite au-dessus du patient au niveau de la partie appropriée du patient. Une seconde extrémité du dispositif de rétention est reliée à un second côté de la plate-forme chirurgicale (100). Le dispositif de rétention est ensuite ajusté pour augmenter la tension dans le dispositif de rétention.
