  • Minimal set-up and ease of use.
  • Maintaining patient’s positioning without undue constriction or pressure on the chest cavity.
  • Maintaining circulation.
  • Prevention against nerve damage and pressure ulcers.
  • Provide adequate exposure of the operative site.
  • Reduce OR set time and standardize patient positioning procedures.
  • Provide comfort and safety to the patient.
