Patient Arm Positioners

Patient Arm Postioners

Patient arm positioners are an innovative surgical table accessory with versatility unlike any other. While they offer a variety of usages in different fields, patient arm positioners are most valuable in modern medicine and surgical applications. When installed, these devices are easy to set up and use, allowing the medical staff to dedicate more time to other, more important tasks. With the attached viscoelastic pad, patients are provided the utmost comfort.

Perhaps the best benefit of patient arm positioners is the ability to disinfect easily. Our arm positioner can be wiped and disinfected. It’s anticipated that medical staff will use the patient arm positioners for multiple patients throughout the day, so easy cleaning makes the devices convenient and safer for everyone.

How Do Patient Arm Positioners Work?

Patient arm positioners are not to be confused with traditional armboards. While they may look similar, the FISSO patient arm positioners offer a wide range of motion and a variety of healthcare uses. Let’s explore how these devices work and make surgical procedures more efficient. 

Patient arm positioners are supported by  the innovative FISSO three-joint arm system, which allows for easy rotation and a reliable hold. These spherical joints also allow for expansive positioning capabilities. Using a secure rails clamp  it quickly connects to the OR table's side rails.  Medical staff can trust that the FISSO arm won’t move. The knob is also designed to be ergonomic for additional ease of use. 

With both lateral and vertical arm support options, patients can remain comfortable and in the correct position for an extensive period, regardless of what procedure is being performed. Thanks to the anatomical form on the viscoelastic pad, additional comfort and safety are assured.

What Makes FISSO the Best?

While at first glance it appears to be an armboard , to classify it strictly as such places undue restrictions on its applied versatility.  The dynamic range of motion offered due to the incorporation of the FISSO articulating arm with the board itself means that safer, more secure positioning can be achieved with this single accessory than with two or even five  different table accessories.  It’s also designed to work with all major surgical table accessory rails.

Engineered and manufactured in Switzerland, the FISSO line is made with precision and to the highest quality standards.
