The Allen® Hug-U-Vac® Positioners safely and comfortably hold patients in lateral, supine, and steep Trendelenburg positions. The Hug-U-Vac positioners all have integral quick-release straps that enable them to attach tightly to the rails of standard OR tables. The Hug-U-Vac positioners have a secure valve that eliminates the need for continuous suction, and their open chamber design enables them to evenly and consistently support the patient’s body.

Allen® Patient Transfer Boards are roller-free, making transfer less traumatic transfer for patients. The boards come in variety of sizes and they are lightweight; no lifting is required, even with your heaviest patients. Allen also sells a variety of clamps for use with OR table accessories. The Allen® Easy Lock™ Clamp and the Allen® Easy Lock™Socket instantly lock into place anywhere on the rail! There is no need to look for table notches when attaching these clamps.
