De Mayo Universal Distractor® provides surgeons two important benefits: precise distraction of the knee during surgery, and an unobstructed view of the surgical site
PLAINVILLE, Conn. (August 6, 2018) - Designed by Innovative Medical Products, the De Mayo Universal Distractor® is a surgical distractor that not only enables surgeons to deliver precise, finite distraction of the knee during surgery but also lets surgeons see into the posterior regions of the joint, providing a completely unobstructed view into the operative site.
Used in conjunction with the De Mayo Knee Positioner®, the De Mayo Universal Distractor® is a sterile, external device that only works with the IMP boot and attaches to the back of the boot. It allows the surgeon to independently control the distracting of the knee joint by applying finite pressure to separate the joint space by means of a handle on the device that incrementally pumps the required tension.
Reducing procedure time for Unicompartmental and TKA surgeries, the IMP distractor also eliminates the need for lamina spreaders, the use of a bone hook, or having an assistant manually pull on the femur at the thigh throughout the surgical procedure. The IMP solution is like having an extra pair of hands in the OR.
Pressure Protector Pad®
The De Mayo Universal Distractor® comes with a sterile, single-use, latex-free Pressure Protector Pad® set that protects the popliteal area of the knee from direct pressure to the popliteal nerve and soft tissue. Designed with an inner core of dense, non-collapsible plastic material covering the square tube portion of the distractor, the pad cannot roll or rotate, providing a wide distribution of forces protecting the delicate structures of the knee.
