Comparison of proning methods

There are multiple methods that can be used to place a patient in the prone position.

  1. Automated proning — in this method, a patient is placed in an automated proning system. Once placed, a patient can be proned by a single caregiver using an electronic remote, or the intuitive touch screen. In addition to proning, kinetic therapy (lateral rotation up to 62 degrees) can be performed.
  2. Device-assisted manual proning — safe patient handling devices, such a ceiling or floor lifts and friction reduction devices, can be used to assist with manual proning. Utilizing these devices helps to engineer out some of the risk associated with manual proning.
  3. Manual proning without assistive devices — proning can be accomplished with the use of bed sheets and pillows. Friction and shear may be higher with this method, but the tools are readily available.
