De Mayo Adapt2Fit™ Modular Knee Positioner

Two piece baseplate allows more options

Many ASCs and outpatient clinics report that the smaller autoclaves,  limited storage space, and smaller soak sinks present a variety of logistical and sterile processing challenges.  While outpatient facilities are insisting on maintaining consistency in training and how they approach procedures, a new solution was needed to overcome the limited resources in smaller facilities.

The De Mayo Adapt2Fit™ Modular Knee Positioner solves these pain points with a two-piece baseplate that quickly breaks the positioner down to half of its overall length.

When stored in its standard sterilization tray, the resulting smaller footprint allows it to fit the smaller autoclaves typically found at Outpatient Centers.  When disassembled, the Adapt2Fit’s reduced size also allows it to be fully submerged in standard sinks and cleaning vessels in a single pass, saving SPD valuable time.

While overcoming spatial challenges, IMP’s engineers also aimed to make the assembled positioner longer than previous models to help facilities better accommodate a longer leg. The end result is that the Adapt2Fit is a full 2-4” longer than previous models, granting more surface area for full flexion and extension without moving the baseplate.

Testimonials

  • “It’s very helpful in the OR, for example, we used it last weekend on a sub troch fracture in the lateral position and it helped us position.” 

    - Dr. James Cameron -MD
  • “I like the SteriBump because it’s lint-free, safer for patient positioning because it’s more secure and easier for the doctor to use than wrapping towels.”

    - Caitlyn Pourcho -RN, OR Circulator
  • “From establishing the position and securing the patient to performing procedures and testing range of motion, we created a system that’s faster and easier while also giving doctors completely unrestricted access to the surgical field.” 

    - Ed De Mayo M.D. -Device Inventor
  • Our hospital purchased SteriBump® to replace our handmade ‘bundles’ for many of the same reasons that hospitals moved away from re-sterilizing cloth OR table drapes some years ago.

  • "The best reason I have for using the SteriBump is that it is sterile every time. The sterility is validated. We were using rolled blankets that were sterilized before this that were sterilized in Sterile Processing. It's one less item they have to deal with and try to keep up with."
