Abstract

Doctors more often choose to apply pneumatic retinopexy therapy to retinal detachment patients. Successful rate of pneumatic retinopexy depends on can comply with requirement of supine posture. This study is focusing on design and application of how the successful rate of surgery of pneumatic retinopexy can be improved and on the user’ s experience of this aid design. This study did confirm that a recovery table helped reduce burden of necks and shoulders.
