It’s very important to reduce the risk of injury and fatigue and to create maximum comfort for medical staff. Surgical mats are available in multiple sizes and constructed of various materials. These mats are set on the floor of an operating room so medical personnel can stand on the mat instead of a hard floor.
Surgical mats are intended to help reduce musculoskeletal injury and improve workplace ergonomics. For example, the Disposable Surgical Mat was designed to address three major operating room concerns: surgical comfort, fluid buildup and OR safety. This surgical mat offers elasticity and ultimate cushioning in order to provide exceptional comfort during prolonged surgeries. This disposable surgical mat is often used in the following surgeries: arthroscopy, laparoscopy, spine surgery, total joint replacement & revision procedures, trauma surgery, transplant surgery, neurosurgery & craniotomy, urologic procedures, labor and delivery & c-sections, cardiothoracic surgery, bariatric surgery, plastic surgery, oral maxillofacial procedures and ear, nose & throat surgery.
If your medical staff is working in time-consuming procedures without a surgical mat to stand on, consider the future benefits these mats have. Is your facility using surgical mats already? If you have any questions or comments, please share your thoughts in the comment box below.
