The Pelvic-Tilt™ Adjustable Displacement Device is an inflatable “pillow” designed to lift a patient’s hip between 20-40 degrees during surgical procedures. This is useful in obstetrics to avoid compression of the vena cava and/or aorta during cesarean sections and deliveries in the supine position. The device is also practical during kidney surgery and surgery on the side of the leg or ankle.
The non-inflatable flap is placed underneath the patient to prevent a lateral shifting of the device. The inflatable “pillow” section is positioned under the hip to be angled, then inflated to the desired lift using the squeeze bulb or an optional tourniquet adapter.
