PearlFit Cushion Positioning Aids
PearlFit Cushions are suitable for a stable patient positioning inside and outside the MRI field of view without any pressure points. The PearlFit Cushions are available in various sizes and can be used for the following applications amongst others:
Comfortable support of the patient on the contra-lateral side during shoulder MRIs.
Stable positioning of arms, legs and heels without pressure points despite long examinations (e.g. Angiography).
Today, patient positioning aids in the field of radiology need to meet constantly growing demands in terms of hygiene and durability. On the one hand the spread of MRSA and other germs lead to more comprehensive hygiene requirements and especially positioning aids need to be examined for cracks and tears very carefully on a regular basis. On the other hand, given the high cost pressure in health care, positioning aids should get cheaper and should be more durable at the same time.
PearlFit positioning aids are available in various sizes and shapes and can be used for stable but yet comfortable patient positioning. They can be used inside and outside the field of view during all radiological procedures.

PearlFit Cushion Main Components:
Very durable, stretchy and hard to break.
Conform to patients anatomy without pressure points.
Permeable to air and impermeable to liquids.
Very durable and hard to break.
The PearlFit Effect:
PearlFit positioning aids allow a stable but yet pressure free positioning of patients.
The effect is commonly known from beanbags – the weight of the (part of the) body suppresses the pearls and makes them interlock into each other.
It is similar to vacuum cushions without the need to draw air out (less stable, but also less hard).
It can be compared to a footprint in the sand.
