The retina detachment (RD) patients after macular hole surgery have to keep face-down position at least several days to two weeks. They always complain could not keep face-down position for a long time. The RD patients maybe give up or just taken the position what they like to. In order to improve the compliance of RD patients, this study designed a positioning assistive device for the RD patients while in the face-down position after macular hole surgery. The positioning assistive device specifically made for prone position. RD Patients lay with their faces over the positioning assistive device that was cut in an oval shape. The effects were evaluated on the comfort level and satisfaction about positioning with assistive device. Up to now there were 10 RD patients participated in this study and completed the questionnaires. The other RD surgical patients were recruited into control group. The questionnaires include the demographic inventory, comfort scale, and satisfaction scale. The validity and reliability of the questionnaires were tested and the results were obtained satisfactorily. The data were analyzed by percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test, chi-square test, and paired t-test. The results indication that the intervention significantly increased participants' comfort level (t=-7.2, p< .05), special improvement in chest and abdominal distress. However, the intervention was not able to affect participants' comfort level in face and neck distress. The satisfaction of positioning assistive device was 78.7%. The items of higher satisfaction score about the device were convenience, comfort, and safety.
