How to Use

Inserting the Foot Plate /Leg Pad Placement

Push the Foot Plate firmly into the Foot Plate Slot at the correct orientation, depending on the procedural and access requirements.


Push the Foot Plate firmly down to ensure complete engagement. 


The Leg Pad needs to be placed centrally on the Lower Leg Support, ensuring no hard edges are exposed.

The vertical heel protection on the pad should overlap the Foot Plate.

Buckle Orientation

Ensure that the Table Strap Buckle is sitting on the opposite side to the leg that you are working on.

If you are working on the left leg, the Table Strap Buckle sits on the right side of the mattress so that it can be tightened from the right side of the table. If you are working on the right leg, the Table Strap Buckle sits on the left side of the mattress so that it can be tightened from the left side of the table.

Secure the Table Straps around the image table, spaced approximately 500mm apart.

Positioning the Patient and Lower Leg Support 

Place the patient on the imaging table, then place the leg support. Lift the patient’s leg onto the device, positioning it so that the ball of the foot can rest firmly against the Foot Plate. You may need to move the leg support up or down the table slightly to achieve this.

Placing the Straps over the Lower Leg Support

Once the patient and Lower Leg Support have been positioned, lift the Table Straps onto the Strap Surfaces at either end of the Leg Support. It may be necessary to slide the Table Straps up or down the table slightly.

 

Strap Tension

Ensure there is adequate tension on the straps after the Lower Leg Support has been correctly positioned, by tightening both Table Straps firmly to immobilise the Lower Leg Support.

Optional Padding 

Additional padding can be placed underneath the patient’s leg to reduce contact with the Table Straps if required. 


Padding can also be placed underneath the patient’s knee for further support, if required.

Applying Leg Straps

Begin with placing the two Leg Straps around the patient’s leg, placing one strap closer to the ankle and the other closer to the knee. 

The patient contact side of the straps are labelled ‘Patient Side’ to ensure the rough hook-side of the fastener does not come into contact with the skin. This label should be facing up when threading the strap underneath the leg support. Hold the hook-side of the fastener over the shin then pull the loop-side down onto the hook-side to secure the leg.


Additional straps can be used if required.

Applying the Foot Straps

Place the Foot Strap at a comfortable tension above the arch of the patient’s foot. 

To fasten the Hook and Loop Strapping, stick the loop side onto the hook side, as indicated as the ‘Patient Side’.

Foot Plate Positioning Options

The Foot Plate can be reversed, so it is sitting at the opposite orientation when considering left or right foot access. This is also useful when considering endo/exo rotation of the foot. 

HINT

Dual Lower Leg Support Placement

Two Lower Leg Supports can be placed side by side on the lab table if both legs require immobilisation. When placing the Table Straps, lift the single Strap onto the Strap Surfaces across both units. Tighten to ensure adequate tension.

 

Removing the Foot Plate

The Foot Plate can be completely removed for access to the sole or back of the heel when considering Dorsiflexion or Sole/Posterior Tibial Artery Access.
