The Tortle Midliner is an FDA-cleared, Class-1 medical device in the form of a light-weight beanie that features two adjustable support rolls that provide precise head positioning.
This medical device is extremely adjustable, easy to apply, and designed to be compatible with most infant medical devices.
The Tortle Midliner has two adjustable PU foam support rolls. These hold baby’s head in a neutral position that supports IVH protocols and also helps prevent abnormal head shape in young infants. It can position and maintain a baby’s head in the optimal position, be it supine, midline, prone, side lying positions, or any number of custom positions.
The Midliner is designed to hold most respiratory equipment used in the complex management of sick infants, including nasal CPAP and cannulas, and helps to stabilize the heads of infants who are intubated and therefore avoid unwanted, accidental extubations.
Positioning plans are available for the bedside.
