Innovative Medical Products’ V2-E® Makes Life Easier on Surgeons
PLAINVILLE, Conn. (March 22, 2018) – IMP's concern for the patient as well as the surgeon has evolved into the V2-E®, which minimizes surgeon fatigue and back pain during surgeries.
De Mayo V2 E® Knee Positioner: This “off the table” positioner is designed with both the surgeon and patient in mind. The IMP solution uses a patented sterile extension arm that extends the knee positioner base plate off the end of the OR table, enabling the surgeon to stand between the patient’s legs and allows the surgeon the ability to look straight down onto the surgical site. Surgeons no longer have to lean over the OR table when performing procedures. IMP is the first company in the marketplace to make and sell a sterile extension.
Besides these innovative benefits for the surgeon, the De Mayo V2 E® Knee Positioner increases patient safety with new features to the knee positioner’s locking mechanisms. The system’s carriage has been fitted with a sliding bar, the Varus Tilt Control, that prevents a patient’s knee or leg from tilting out, regardless of patient height or weight. Patients stay solidly in place during the entire surgical procedure, while still allowing the surgeon to adjust the rotation, flexion, and extension of the knee. The Varus Tilt Control allows varying degrees of lateral movement.
When an extension is not needed, surgeons can opt for the De Mayo V2 Knee Positioner® for surgical procedures carried out on top of the standard OR table. The De Mayo V2® employs the same features and components as the V2-E® but without the extension. The V2 base plate, along with the redesigned locking features in the new carriage, can be easily removed for cleaning. The pivot handle on the carriage allows precise control of flexion, tilt, and rotation. The new carriage design provides a better gripping capability by holding the positioner’s boot in place more securely than the original version.
