The secret of perfected adaptation to the body by Vacuform® 2.0 surgical mattresses is microballs of styrofoam, which are stabilized by vacuum to give a lasting, completely suppor tive form. Only Vacuform® 2.0 contains since many years about the well proven and unique Micro-Space System an increases the feeling of physical comfort for the patient significantly compared to conventional fillings. Reducing the diameter of the filler balls by a fifth enables signifi cantly more precise adaptation of the surgical mattresses to the body.

Particularly during time-consuming operations or with patients who are older and in poor condition, there is a risk of pressure points leading to acute decubital ulcers* and paresis (paralysis from nerve damage). The individual, ergonomic body adaptation of Vacuform® 2.0 surgical mattresses effectively prevents such damage. The support pressure of the patient is optimally distributed over the whole body and thus reduced to a minimum. The microcirculation needed by the skin is unaffected. The patient has a noticeable feeling of comfort, a feeling of lightness and warmth.
The patient can be immobilized quickly and securely in any desired position. Thisgives the surgeon optimal access to the operation area and allows safe handling of the patient. Even the most extreme tilting of the surgery table does not change the defined position of the patient. The surgical positioning can be corrected at any time by relieving the vacuum, forming the surgical mattress to the new position of the patient and then evacuating the air again. Moreover, Vacuform® 2.0 surgical mattresses enable transport between hospitals in a defined surgical position.
Vacuform® 2.0 contributes to efficiency and leads to considerable cost reduction through fast, simple handling, prevention of sequelae such as decubitus and paresis, saving of additional materials, fast cleaning and long reusability even with constant use.
The comprehensive offering of VACUFORM products helps you achieve almost any position and positioning for patients. The cushions can be used universally for the partial positioning of arms and legs, positioning the head or positioning of small children and babies. The use as a simple pad or for general decubitus prophylaxis is also possible. The partial or whole fi xed positioning during a CT, MRI or X-ray extends the field of application many times over.
This specially developed hood encloses the entire head and fits the head ideally using the Vacuform® 2.0 principle. The hood can be used to immobilize the patient’s head during computer tomography (CT), angiography, etc., because it is permeable to X-rays. For use in radiology, we offer a special plastic vacuum hand pump equipped with a non-magnetic brass rod.
Particularly suitably for all OP positions in back position. The new head-triangular cushion make a back storage perceptibly more comfortably. By its triangular form and the cut out, the cervical area will be more supported. The pillow can be used singular or also in addition, adapted under the head. The application as a pillow by operations in the dentist‘s chair is recommendable.
The patient will be positioned in a comfortable situation with an optimally supported head. Depending of this the patient keeps calm and still by more well-being.
