Universal SteriBump® from Innovative Medical Products Guarantees Sterility, Helping to Reduce Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) at the Surgical Site
Companion solution, SuperBump™, makes patient positioning during knee procedures simpler than ever
PLAINVILLE, Conn. (October 18, 2017) – As every OR staff member knows, any material entering the sterile field during surgery needs to be as free from contaminates as possible in order to prevent surgical site infection. Because IMP’s lint-free Universal SteriBump® positioner is designed for single use, there is no possibility of cross-contamination. Its guaranteed sterility 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 for the patient than cloth bundling, the Universal SteriBump® is a contoured, polyurethane foam block that is latex-free with a closed cell geometry that doesn’t have the particulate breakdown of cloth. Protected by guaranteed sterile packaging, and ready to use for multiple applications, the SteriBump® is cost-effective, guaranteeing product sterility, while providing the patient and the surgical team a physical platform that can securely elevate a patient’s limb in the sterile field when required.
As one Central Sterile Services (CSS) administrator noted, “Our hospital purchased the Universal SteriBump® to replace our handmade ‘bundles’ for many of the same reasons that hospitals moved away from re-sterilizing cloth OR table drapes years ago. The SteriBump® is consistent in size, shape, and density, unlike handmade ones that potentially fall apart. We like the SteriBump’s® contoured shape that can cradle the patient’s limb and reduce its movement, unlike our bundles, providing an excellent sterile platform for multiple surgical procedures.” SuperBump™: a companion positioning solution to IMP’s SteriBump®
The SuperBump™ is a guaranteed, sterile, weighted bump, employed when simplicity is all a surgical team needs for a knee procedure. The SuperBump™ can be positioned on top of the OR table’s drapes, at any location, eliminating the need for OR personnel to go under the table drapes to reposition makeshift bumps or barriers.
