Adaptable positioning system

Adaptable arm positioner and beach chair system

The precise patient-specific positioning you deserve.

The Adaptable positioning system delivers precise patient-specific positioning and is designed to maximize surgical and operative access for the shoulder, inclusive of beach chair and lateral Shoulder Arthroscopy, TSA and fracture. 

Reproducible and safe positioning is the first step of any successful surgical approach and is essential for advanced surgical techniques. The Adaptable  system allows for precise positioning control within a case. In my OR, this has allowed personnel to focus more on the procedure itself.”
-Dr. Brett Sanders, M.D. and key developing surgeon
