TrendGuard vs. the Genesis Bi-Wing AAP Trendelenburg Position Device by KLM Medical Equipment

KLM Medical Equipment highlights the differences between the Genesis Bi-Wing AAP Trendelenburg Position Device and the popular TrendGuard device.


Prairie Village, KS -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/11/2021 --KLM Medical Equipment offers facilities with the Genesis Bi-Wing AAP Trendelenburg Position Device that challenges the popular TrendGuard device for lower abdominal surgeries and procedures.

Trendelenburg positioning devices utilize the forces of gravity to push abdominal organs towards the head, improving access to the organs in the pelvic region. While a simple concept in itself, these Trendelenburg positioning devices need to provide both patients and medical experts with stability and security.

The TrenGuard device has been the popular choice for a range of surgeries including lower abdominal, colorectal, gynecological, robotic thoracic surgery, robotic bariatric surgery, and other genitourinary procedures. While the TrenGuard is a popular choice, it's not necessarily the best technology on the market.

TrenGuard positioning devices have a simple, no-slip design made from polyurethane foams for positioning. With tether straps that attach directly to surgical tables, TrenGuard can accommodate high BMIs for patients of all sizes and weights. As a basic model, the TrenGuard is functional but doesn't include important features like quick positioning time and the adjustment of patients from a single pad.

The Genesis Bi-Wing AAP by KLM Medical Equipment is the smart choice for facilities due to its innovative and safe design. Not only does the Genesis Bi-Wing AAP encompass all the features offered by the TrendGuard it includes additional features such as:

Positions obese patients safely and quickly (better than traditional methodologies)
Moves and repositions patient and pad together
Chest pad and XL strap offers additional traction support
Reduces staff lifting burden and improves patient handling ergonomics
100% pad to skin contact maximizes
Standardizes arm intubation to lithotomy handling with a single device for any size patient
