Innovative Medical Products’ Universal SteriBump® Combats Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) at the Surgical Site
PLAINVILLE, Conn. (April 5, 2019) – As every OR staff member knows, any material entering the sterile field during surgery needs to be as free from contaminants as possible in order to prevent surgical site infection. Because Innovative Medical Products’ lint-free Universal SteriBump® positioner is designed for single use, there is no possibility of cross-contamination. This guaranteed sterility also frees up operating room personnel from having to bundle together sterile towels and other cloths to create a makeshift limb support, saving valuable OR and sterile processing departments’ time.
Safer than cloth bundlings, the Universal SteriBump® is a latex-free, contoured, polyurethane foam block with a closed cell geometry that doesn’t have the particulate breakdown of cloth. Ready to use for multiple applications, the SteriBump® is cost-effective, providing a secure, physical support that is ideal for shoulder abduction during lateral shoulder arthroscopy, incision closure of total hip or knee surgery, vascular surgery, extremity trauma, carpal tunnel, and other procedures. The IMP positioning solution will also not shift or move during surgery as often happens with cloth bundling.
SteriBump’s® contour design cradles the patient’s extremities in the sterile field and its rectangular shape lets OR personnel select multiple positioning heights or angles. The IMP solution also offers a consistent size and stable density for a sterile platform that proves to be less costly and less labor-intensive than having OR staff put together a handmade cloth bundle. With the Universal SteriBump®, it’s like having an extra pair of hands in the OR.
