The EleGARDTM System

The EleGARDTM Patient Positioning System

The EleGARD Patient Positioning System is intended to assist in elevating the head and the thorax of a patient from a supine position into a multi-level elevated position with the head above the thorax and the thorax above the lower body and extremities, and may be used during various procedures, i.e., airway management procedures, CPR, etc.

The EleGARD System is the only device that precisely, rapidly, and consistently positions the patient for CPR and airway management and raises the patient into multi-level elevation positioning to support the practice of the ElevatedCPR method in the pre-hospital and hospital settings.
