Zeroing In On Patient Safety
The Hillrom advanced arm support helps to prevent pressure injuries. When there is too much pressure on the body, skin integrity can deteriorate, leading to the formation of ulcers. This operating room equipment offers the right degree of padding to help prevent the problem.
The arm support padding is important for the reduction of moisture and friction — two other causes of pressure injuries that can lead to longer hospital stays and serious complications.²
Stretching the ulnar nerve is another concern for patients undergoing spine surgery in the lateral or prone position.¹ The lower arm support helps maintain flexion under a 90-degree angle, keeping the arm in a neutral position.
The prone and lateral position also put patients at risk of nerve compression against the medial epicondyle, but the adjustable arm support offers padding at the elbow to help avoid this issue.¹
Fully Adjustable and Versatile
The Hillrom arm support has a patient weight capacity of 500 lbs, allowing it to provide comfort and safety to patients of many sizes.
