Hospital Beds / Homecare Beds - Trendelenburg, Reverse Trendelenburg Positions

In the Trendelenburg position the body is laid flat on the back (supine position) with the feet higher than the head, in contrast to the reverse Trendelenburg position, where the body is tilted in the opposite direction. This is a standard position used in abdominal and gynecological surgery. It allows better access to the pelvic organs as gravity pulls the intestines away from the pelvis.

Traditionally, the Trendelenburg position is the standard first aid position for shock and was used for injured SCUBA divers. Perhaps because of its effect on breathing difficulty and airway problems, the Trendelenburg position is used in waterboarding. The Trendelenburg position may be used in childbirth when a woman's cervix is too swollen and won't quite dilate to 10 centimeters, or during the incidence of a prolapsed umbilical cord to take pressure off the cord and get more oxygen to the fetus, or it can be used to help rotate a posterior fetus either during pregnancy or the birth itself.

Our hospital beds of different models presented below can perform the trendelenburg and reverse trendelenburg positions.
