Enhancing Surgical Precision: The Role of TiMOTION in Patient Positioning and Surgical Outcomes

Actualités et articles

 

In the complex world of surgical procedures, precise movement is of the utmost importance in operating tables and procedure chairs. Every minute detail, from patient positioning to the incision, contributes to the outcome of the surgery and the overall health of the patient before, after, and during

surgery.

 

Patient positioning in surgical and procedure equipment, often overlooked but immensely impactful, is an area where motion advancements can truly revolutionize surgical outcomes. This is where TiMOTION steps in, pioneering innovative electric actuator systems that have redefined the landscape of surgical precision.

 

 

Importance of Patient Positioning in Surgical Procedures

The significance of patient positioning during surgery cannot be overstated. Prolonged procedures are common and without proper positioning can lead to pressure necrosis of the patient's skin and tissues, while possibly compromising blood flow, potentially causing severe intraoperative injuries.

A prevalent intraoperative injury is the pressure ulcer (PU). Research indicates these PU's occur between 12% to 66% across various surgical procedures.

Poor patient positioning not only poses risks of pressure ulcers but also increases the likelihood of peripheral nerve injuries, accounting for 15% of legal claims associated with surgery.

 

 

Commonly Used Surgical Positions and Their Impact

Within the surgical theater, various positions are employed to facilitate different procedures:

  • Fowler position: The head of the bed between a 60-degree and 90-degree angle, “Chair Position”.
  • Supine position: Patient lying on their back in a neutral position, the most common position.
  • Trendelenburg position: The patient is supine with the table tilted down so the patient's feet are above their head.
  • Reverse Trendelenburg position: Like the Trendelenburg position but the table is tilted up, so the patient's head is above their feet.

 

 

Importance of Hi-Lo Adjustability in Surgeon Comfort

Addressing surgeon comfort and ergonomics in the operating room is crucial. Musculoskeletal injuries, particularly neck and back pain, are common among surgeons and can significantly impact their performance and longevity in their careers. Surveys among otolaryngologists reveal alarming rates of musculoskeletal discomfort during surgeries, emphasizing the imperative need for ergonomic solutions.

 

Optimal operating table height is pivotal in reducing surgeon fatigue and musculoskeletal discomfort. Without proper table height, surgeons are more likely to take breaks during surgery prolonging the surgery and leading the way for possible intraoperative injuries in the patient.

 

 

What TiMOTION Provides

TiMOTION leads the way in delivering complete solutions for maneuvering surgical tables and procedure chairs. Our lifting columns (TL51) serve as the bedrock, facilitating precise vertical movement, while actuators (TA38M) meticulously fine-tune the table's head, foot, and base, ensuring accurate positioning. The system is powered by control boxes (TC21), orchestrating seamless operations. Control the system as our handsets seamlessly master the bed (TMH19).

 

Additionally, crucial accessories like the TEB, designed as an emergency stop, provide vital support in urgent situations. 

Elevating Healthcare Ergonomics with TiMOTION

The innovative solutions offered by TiMOTION present an avenue to revolutionize healthcare ergonomics. By incorporating our innovative Care Motion actuator systems into medical equipment, significantly enhancing patient care and improving surgical outcomes, it's one step further in ensuring the overall well-being of both patients and surgical teams.
