Our Wixson Hip Positioner is used for stable positioning of a patient during total hip and revision surgery. It is designed to be placed on top of the operating table.
The base plate is rubber-backed to reduce slipping on the table. The uprights can easily be slid in and out of the multiple slots in the plate for desired positioning and locked into position with the locking bolt. The complete upright assembly is radiolucent.
The upright pads and the base plate pad are made of semi-dense foam to help prevent pressure points and are sealed with a washable coating. This coating also helps to lessen the possibility of skin breakdown.
The hip positioner consists of: One 10″ post with double pads, one 6″ post with a single pad, one 20″ base plate, one base plate pad, two 2″ spacers, one 4″ knob, and one 6″ knob.
The spacers and longer knobs are supplied for use with larger patients: use one spacer with the 4″ knob, or combine the two spacers to use with the 6″ knob.
The pad assembly can be adjusted for additional height and width. The upright posts are modular. The complete unit is radiolucent and autoclavable except for the foam pads.
