The epidural positioning device allows the patient the nurse to comfortably encourage a flexible thoracic, cervical, and lumbar while maintaining a safe and stable position. The arms, head, and chest rest help the back become immobile while making other parts adjustable for the medical exam. The EPD is flexible so the patient can use it on theater beds, hospital beds, and trolleys.
The cheapest option is usually to use a nurse to adjust the patient. It takes a relatively short time and does not require any tools or resources. Why should you invest in an EPD? The significant consideration is that adjusting a patient in old-fashioned ways is risky due to the potential of nursing-related injuries.
Benefits of our EPD
- The tool safely positions the EPD and holds them to restrict or reduce unnecessary movement., hence reducing improper placements
- Nurses do not struggle to maintain the weak or big-bodied patient; thus they are free to execute other tasks.
- The epidural positioner offers the right stature, whereas the nurse will affect the desired body shape and position.
- The EPD improves the service time and dramatically improves the satisfaction score of the patient
What is the cost of an EPD?
The manual EPD has a price range of between $4000 and $6000, while the electric one ranges between $13,000 and $15,000. The total cost of setting up the EPD depends on the practitioner’s preference for accessory items like disposable covers, horseshoe donut pads, and face covers.

Comparison between our manual and electric epidurals
Both EPDs encourage excellent support for the cervical, lumbar, and thoracic sections. They have a height range difference of fewer than ten inches, and a closely similar arm and chest rest. These devices work excellently in all medical and surgical applications, allowing the proper administration of anesthesia. Our manual and electric variations are easily lockable and make it easy to move and adjust the patient during the operation.
The main difference is that the manual one uses mechanical means to adjust the rest while the electric one uses an electrical hand control. The exact differences are available when you call our office for a consultation. Contact us today to make an order of any of our EPDs at the most friendly prices and a safe shipping arrangement.
