Uratex created its first Prone Pillow to help aid severe Covid-19 patients in some of the major hospitals in the Philippines. The Covid-19 pandemic causes respiratory infection that hampers breathing.
What is a Prone Pillow?
In general, many medical research journals suggest the use of a Prone Pillow to facilitate easier breathing to Covid-19 severe case patients. The following are its key features and benefits:
- Provides comfortable immobilization of head in prone position
- Provides holes to free up eyes, nose, and mouth
- With comfort foam layer to conform to facial features and support base layer to keep pillow sturdy over use
- Allows tube access of medical equipment at both sides of the pillow
According to Dr. Brian Cabral, a Clinical Associate Professor at Philippine General Hospital, “Proning is useful for patients with severe cases of COVID who end up with ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome). The pillow designed by Uratex helps the patients be more comfortable, as it allows for tubes and other equipment attached to the patient’s mouth and upper body to stay in place without getting squeezed. So far, hospitals have positive reviews after receiving and using them.”
Mr. Dindo Medina, our Corporate Sales Director, designed the prototype based on a sample photo sent by Dr. Albert Albay of Philippine General Hospital. Uratex plans to produce 1,000 pieces and has received orders from at least 16 hospitals. Deliveries nationwide started last April 2, 2020 in Metro Manila, and April 6 to provinces such as Cagayan De Oro.
