TO THE READERSHIP: Two errors appear in the article by Prasarn et al. (Prasarn ML, Zhou H, Dubose D, et al. Total motion generated in the unstable thoracolumbar spine during management of the typical trauma patient: a comparison of methods in a cadaver model. J Neurosurg Spine. 2012;16:504-508).
In the legend of Fig. 1B, the HoverMatt Air-Transfer Mattress was used, not the Airpal transfer system as incorrectly stated. The corrected legend appears here with the figure.
Photographs demonstrating the maneuvers and transfers. A: The 6-plus-person lift and slide technique. B: The bed transfer using the HoverMatt Air-Transfer Mattress. C: Lateral therapy using the SpO2RT bed. D: Turning the patient prone using the Jackson table. Figure is available in color online only.
In the Motion Sequences section of the Methods, "HoverMatt" has been updated to "HoverMatt Air-Transfer Mattress" for clarity.
The article has been corrected online as of September 23, 2022.
