Patient Positioners and Support Surfaces

Every year, hospital facilities spend an estimated $26.8 billion dollars treating hospital acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) and their related complications. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid consider HAPIs to be "never events" and in 2008 eliminated reimbursement for costs associated with them. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, HAPIs have continued to increase, therefore, adding additional expenses to healthcare systems.

For over 50 years, Action Products has designed and manufactured patient positioners and support surfaces that help protect your patients against pressure injuries. Our products provide pressure relief and shear reduction in a variety of surgical settings including preoperative, perioperative and postoperative.
