2017 AORN Guidelines state: “Static surfaces such as viscoelastic polymer (ie, gel) overlays are designed to reduce shearing and to support the patient’s weight without becoming fully compressed under the weight of the patient’s body. Gel overlays are radiolucent, latex-free, and reusable.”

We could not have said it better ourselves. We believe every surgical case should have a layer of Akton® polymer gel protection between the pad and the patient. We have many sizes of gel overlays; in fact, we have an exact size for most operating room and surgical tables. If you do not see it here, just email us at service (at) actionproducts.com and we will make a custom overlay for you.
