Birkova Products arm guards are made with a durable, radiolucent polycarbonate surface. The surgical toboggan arm guards are designed to prevent excessive pressure from being put on the patient's arm that may cause procedure related nerve damage, skin irritation, or muscle tension. With the toboggan shield in place medical personnel can access IV and anesthesia lines without causing dislodgement. Simply slide the arm guard under the OR table pad to hold in place. Arm guard pads are available to provide maximum comfort for both the patient and medical staff.
