Ergotrics (2019)

Ergotrics was founded in 2014 by Dr. Paul Depauw, neurosurgeon. Ergotrics specializes in positioning and relocating patients with compressed air in healthcare. Ergotrics designs and produces inflatable positioning cushions that allow patients to be lifted and tilted quickly, easily, ergonomically, hygienically and safely. The first innovations are a breakthrough for showing proning and operating in the prone position during neurosurgical procedures.
The perfect positioning of a patient on the abdomen has important consequences and is critical for successful operations. Current procedures are also ergonomically demanding for hospital staff and long-term respiration in intensive care (IC).
