Face down recovery equipment is recommended after vitrectomy surgery and retina surgery for macular hole, detached retina, retinal hole, vitreous hemorrhage, or other conditions.
If you have been instructed to recover facedown after surgery, the high-quality equipment from McFee Medical Technologies will make your recovery so much easier and more comfortable.
Our equipment is made specifically for the face down recovery period. You won’t find more comfortable face down chairs or sleeping cushions for face down positioning.
We understand that a prescription for days of face down recovery can be overwhelming and scary. Please check out our options below, and then give us a call if you’d like help choosing the best face down positioning equipment rental for you.
Face Down Recovery Equipment Options
Face Down Chairs
If you must remain in a facedown position during the day, you will spend the majority of your time in a face down chair.
Thanks to face down chairs, you will be able to eat, watch TV, use a laptop or tablet, read a book, and stay engaged with your family while maintaining the face down position.
McFee Medical Technologies has two options for face down chairs, one that is motorized and one that is adjustable by hand.
The EZ Chair – Motorized Face Down Chair
The EZ Chair is a McFee Medical Technologies exclusive. We invented it just for our customers, and you won’t find it anywhere else.
The EZ Chair is the first and only face down support chair that has been exclusively designed for face down positioning and ultimate comfort. It is the only chair that lets you easily adjust your position with the push of a button, without having to get off of the chair.
- Fully automatic, electrically powered; control with a push button remote
- Step through design (no need to swing your leg over)
- Fold up knee pads
- Nine adjustable points of motion
- High density memory foam
- Anti-Bacterial, Latex Free Vinyl
- Lightweight construction
- Easy Portability on quality castors
We put our 18 plus years of experience in post-operative vitrectomy recovery to work in the design and construction of this chair.
The Seated Support – Our Traditional Face Down Chair
The Seated Support is our original face down chair design. It is a great, affordable option for face down recovery. Get out of bed and enjoy life in the Seated Support!
The Seated Support positions you in an ergonomically correct seated position and features an adjustable work desk. Use the work desk for eating, using your laptop, playing games, or simply as an arm rest.
- Lightweight design
- Sterile, comfortable padding
- Adjustable work desk
- Easy to transport, with built in wheels (take it outside!)
- Easy to fold and put away when not in use
Three of our vitrectomy equipment rental packages include your choice of these face down chairs.
You can also choose to only rent the chair if you would rather not use other equipment, though we recommend having other options for face down positioning to ease discomfort.
Face Down Sleeping and Face Down Pillows
During a face down recovery period, you will also spend a lot of your time sleeping face down.
To make this easier and more comfortable, we offer not only a face down pillow and sleeping solution but also customized body cushions to fit your body.
The EZ Sleep – Face Down Sleeping Cushion
The EZ Sleep Support System, designed and manufactured by McFee Medical Technologies, is the most versatile and comfortable sleeping system available. It is a must-have for anyone who is required to sleep face down after eye surgery.
When you rent from McFee Medical Technologies, you can choose one of our exclusive specialty body cushions. These are intended to relieve pressure from common areas of discomfort based on your body type. We have cushions made for larger chest size or larger torso and chest size.
The EZ Sleep was designed for sleeping and relaxing on top of a bed. The head rest portion can also convert to a table-top unit or travel cushion for use during the day and while on the go (in the back seat).
How to Rent Face Down Equipment
Given that the equipment is used for a limited time, we offer short-term rentals of face down recovery equipment.
You can rent individual items you know you will use, or you can get the most affordable solution by choosing a rental package. Which equipment you need to rent depends on your planned activities and your recovery time.
When you place a rental order online or by phone, we will process your order same-day if received by 5pm EST. All orders include free ground shipping and are delivered directly to your home or place of recovery. All you need to do is set up your equipment following our help videos, which we recommend doing before your surgery.
