Oakworks® Inc., manufacturer of medical tables and positioning devices for medical, spa, physical therapy, and massage therapy markets announces the success of the Spine Positioning System for pain management spinal injections and procedures requiring stability, versatility and excellent visualizations.

Oakworks® Inc., http://www.oakworks.com, reported the “Spine Positioning System released in March of 2010 has been well received and recognized by interventional pain physicians worldwide as a great fit and value." The SPS replaced the widely accepted Spinal Imaging Platform that had proved its worth in hundreds of offices.

Paul Dreyfuss, MD, a leader in pain management, worked closely with Oakworks to develop the new product and insure a vast improvement in performance. Dreyfuss said “The Spine Positioning System solves imaging, stability and comfort issues associated with performance of spine procedures. The cervical and thoracic spine including the cervicothoracic junction can now be visualized in AP, oblique and lateral projections regardless of the patient’s body habitus. All posterior approach spine procedures can now be accurately performed as visualization of the necessary anatomic landmarks is possible due to the unique design of the Spine Positioning System.”

The new system features more components that are designed to offer greater flexibility, better visualizations, and significantly enhanced comfort and security for patients. The system is intuitive to use and saves time in a busy office. The contoured torso support pad is wider, longer and features arm cutouts and an abdominal recess to stabilize clients better while offering more comfort. When combined with the new contoured torso wedges and adjuster pads, the range of stable positions has increased dramatically, permitting better visualization regardless of the patient’s body habitus. The base and head supports have been completely redesigned to increase rigidity and insure no impediments to visualization while increasing positioning possibilities.

With this system, procedural set up time is reduced, patient comfort is enhanced, and unwanted movement is minimized. Most importantly, the target anatomy is more readily visualized, which allows the physician to perform spine procedures in a more efficient and secure manner. Designed to be used with any radiolucent table, the Spine Positioning System is an integral component of the pain management fluoroscopy suite.

“Our collaboration with Paul Dreyfuss on this product insured that the new design overcame all the shortcomings of the original model. The response from doctors has been excellent,” said Jeff Riach, CEO of Oakworks Medical.
