OR Pressure Reducing Mattresses?

  1. hi all,
    i am doing some research on prevention of pressure ulcers acquired in the or.
    i have 2 questions....what sort of mattresses do your or tables have?
    foam/gel??

    also...we recently started doing robotic surgery with the patients in steep trendelenburg

    what sort of or table surface do you use to avoid a patient from sliding on the table?? shear is a bad thing!

    we do the usual, table straps, etc...but aren't really pleased with the result..

    any info will be appreciated!
