HotDog® Patient Warming is an air-free, water-free, state-of-the-art perioperative warming system. Efficient warming is delivered by a flexible, lightweight conductive polymer fabric inside of HotDog blankets and mattresses. It’s the only system that warms the patient from above and below simultaneously, resulting in a uniquely versatile, less expensive, and more effective warming solution.

WaffleGrip provides securement in Trendelenburg that you can rely on. The high coefficient of friction of this disposable overlay and the durable OR table securement provides the anti-slip protection your patient needs, especially high BMI patients. Not only does it secure the patient more reliably, but it also provides warming to help protect against the avoidable and all-too-common complications of unintended hypothermia.
