This single leg elevator is made from a soft and flexible, hypoallergenic, polyurethane foam. The foam product has been specifically developed to have very fast recovery characteristics from its compressed storage state. The foam combination of different chemicals has allowed this product to ensure comfort and longevity, and has been individually cut using the CNC programmed laser cut method. This foam product is one that has a ‘spring’ to it, but is still soft. It is designed and moulded into a specific shape to aid support and elevation to a limb intra operatively. The Surgical Leg Elevator consists of two grooved cutouts, an extremity holder. One provides a stable secure host for a patient’s limb in a single leg elevation during surgery; the other allows and provides sufficient space to the surgeon to exercise the procedure. The foam product is covered with a very light anti-static and soft, but durable, skin-friendly fabric, which is completely airtight and waterproof. A pressure vacuum valve is inserted into the product to create a vacuum and compress the product. This makes the product compact, lightweight and easy to travel with. It can be stored in a small space.

This product can sustain the autoclave procedure, which is ideal for multiple client use. This high-quality medical device is environmentally friendly, controls cross infection and makes it easy to perform the surgical procedure.

The multifunctional Surgical Leg Elevator is a stable and secure limb support cushion, for during the surgery procedure in theatre. It must be positioned in a supine position underneath the patient’s leg, and has a soft and flexible foam surface contour to position and stabilises the elevated leg. The one cutout area of the Surgical Leg Elevator provides sufficient space to the surgeon to exercise the procedure successfully. It can also be used to raise the lower extremity to prevent swelling or to prevent pressure sores on the lower back. The Surgical Leg Elevator increases blood circulation and aids in healing existing ulcers.
