Pediatric Positioning Chair Provides Secure Immobilization

Pediatric Positioning Chair Provides Secure Immobilization

December 28, 2010 — The Pedia-Poser pediatric positioning chair provides fast, gentle and secure immobilization of infants through 4-year-olds for X-ray imaging. It features a saddle seat with detachable saddle horn that is form-fitting and safe. The bench seat for older children includes a detachable saddle horn that aids in positioning. In either configuration, the saddle horn supports a protective genital lead shield.

Immobilization is done gently and securely; the patient is secured only once – the chair rotates, positioning for different views. It keeps the patient as close to the film as possible to ensure high-quality images. The adjustable back and head-tilt support fits patients of all sizes. Critical chair components are X-ray lucent for optimal X-ray contrast.

The Pedia-Poser is made from germ-resistant, nonporous polyethylene and is easy to keep clean. It features high-quality lockable casters to provide mobility and stability. It helps to ensure accurate positioning, which can eliminate retakes, saving time and money.
