Patient Support Devices

Liebel-Flarsheim™ Compression Device, Hand Grips, Patient Restraint Straps, Shoulder Supports and Wedge Pad

Mallinckrodt offers numerous devices to aid patient support when using the Liebel-Flarsheim imaging system:
 
The Liebel-Flarsheim compression device utilizes a washable cloth band with a ratchet mechanism to apply compression across the patient's abdomen to avoid interference with imaging of the urinary tract on larger or gas distended patients, and improves contrast pooling in the proximal urinary tract. The compression device may also be used as a patient restraint.
 
Liebel-Flarsheim hand grips can be used for tilting the table from the horizontal to the vertical position. A single Liebel-Flarsheim hand grip mounted to the far side of the table assists patients in getting on and off the table. They also provide an additional sense of security for the patient when tilting the table from the horizontal to the vertical position.
 
The Liebel-Flarsheim patient restraint strap provides an additional safety feature by attaching to the table rails and fitting over the patient's chest.

Liebel-Flarsheim shoulder supports are designed to add a level of security for the patient when the table is placed in a Trendelenberg (head down) position.

The Liebel-Flarsheim wedge body pad is designed to fit on the table pad top to provide elevation of the patient's upper body and provide an extra level of comfort for patients with osteoporosis, kyphosis or dyspnea.
