Ankle Cradle™️ and Knee Support System

Our innovative system provides soft, comfortable support from the knees to the ankles and allows the patient’s heels to actually float above the bed.

“Pressure ulcer formation related to positioning in the OR is the leading cause of increased length of hospital stay among surgical patients, costing between $14,000 and $40,000 per patient.”

—Primiano, Friend, Mclure, Nardi, Fix, Schafer, Savochka, & McNett, 2011

REDUCE PRESSURE ULCERS

Our patent-pending Ankle Cradle™️ and Knee Support System provides a higher standard of care for patients across a variety of medical settings, including the OR, Catheter Lab, ICUs, and long-term care facilities. Its simple, yet innovative design helps reduce the incidence of heel pressure ulcers caused by extended supine positioning.

“Pressure ulcer prevalence occurs at a rate of 8.5% or higher among all patients who undergo surgical procedures that last longer than three hours.”

—Primiano, Friend, Mclure, Nardi, Fix, Schafer, Savochka, & McNett, 2011

memory-foam design

The system’s engineered open-cell, memory-foam design mitigates pressure sores typically associated with extended procedures when patient mobility is not desired. If the patient is required to remain flat and static for prolonged periods of time during recovery, our system travels with them to the PACU or their hospital room.

CMD Ankle and Knee Support

“Studies have shown that the percentage of patients who acquire pressure ulcers increases as the length of surgery increases”

—Primiano, Friend, Mclure, Nardi, Fix, Schafer, Savochka, & McNett, 2011

prevents involuntary knee or ankle movement

This two-part system also simplifies work for the circulating staff and physician by comfortably securing the patient’s ankles and legs in an elevated, static position, which prevents involuntary knee or ankle movement during use. The Ankle Cradle™️​ and Knee Support System is available in three sizes: small, medium, and large; the small size is intended for pediatrics and adolescents, medium for teens and mid-sized adults, and large for larger patients.

"In the United States, approximately 1.6 billion patients develop health care-associated pressure ulcers at an annual cost of $2.2 billion to $3.6 billion.”

—Primiano, Friend, Mclure, Nardi, Fix, Schafer, Savochka, & McNett, 2011
