You don’t need to have had a baby to know that childbirth is not an easy process. Well now it’s a little bit easier with the Pushpal, your friendly child-delivering medgadget! The Pushpal consists of a pair of padded cuffs that strap onto your calves with handles. By holding onto the handles you are able to comfortably stay in the most efficient child-delivering position. Here are some testimonials from the San Bernardino County Sun:
“Sometimes you get so tired and your legs get so heavy – this really helps,” said Miranda, who delivered her ba at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center. “It’s a great help and puts you in the perfect position.” Pomona Valley has been offering Push Pal to its expectant mothers for about four years. Users and hospital staff have expressed satisfaction.
“Oh my gosh, it’s an absolutely fantastic tool,” said Bev Blair, RN, an obstetrics nurse at the hospital. “When patients have trouble holding their legs up – like moms with epidurals, first time moms, moms that are a little obese – this helps them out and puts them in the right position and they can push with more force. I’ve yet to find a patient that doesn’t just love it.”
When mothers-to-be get to the pushing stage some, especially first-timers, tend to arch their backs, which puts them in the wrong position and makes their bodies work harder, Blair explained. With Push Pal, a woman can automatically get into the right position and can direct her energy properly, with more force, and it’s this efficiency that shortens the delivery time.
And what does one do with the device after child delivery is all wrapped up? Use your imagination…
Are you thinking what we’re thinking? It would be wonderful as a lifting aid for metal piping! Shame on you if you were thinking of anything else.
