Sage Products sponsors two first-time poster presenters, debuts Prevalon Mobile Air Transfer System at the 2017 Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Conference

Presenters focus on patient repositioning practices

CARY, IL, April 4, 2017 – Sage Products LLC will sponsor two first-time poster presenters at the upcoming Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Conference (SPHM) April 10-14 at the Renaissance Glendale in Glendale, Arizona.

Along with the first time presenters, Sage will be debuting the newly launched Prevalon Mobile Air Transfer System (MATS) to a broad safe patient handling audience. MATS is designed to provide nurses with a safe and easy way to laterally transfer their patients using a patent-pending, dual-inflation design that cradles and stabilizes the patient before raising the patient on a cushion of air, resulting in an easier and more effective transfer.

“The objectives of SPHM, supporting best practices for patient handling, align with Sage’s focus on reduction of injury risk to patients and caregivers,” said Marko Cikara, Product Manager, Sage Products, “Safe patient handling was at the forefront of the design for our MATS product, and we’re excited to share it with the SPHM audience for the first time.”

Presenting at SPHM this year:

Edna Prosser, RN
Ozark Health

Time-to-Turn: Reducing Patient Handling Injuries During In-Bed Repositioning
