Innovative Medical Products’ De Mayo Knee Positioners® are the ‘Gold Standard’ in Family of IMP Surgical Knee Positioners

PLAINVILLE, Conn., (January 23, 2018) – In 2003 IMP improved what was to become the company’s “gold standard” in patient positioning for knee surgeries – the De Mayo Knee Positioner®, a solution that allows for precise control of flexion/extension, internal/external rotation of the knee during surgery. Since its introduction, the IMP positioner has generated unprecedented sales and sparked the beginning of a steady evolution in IMP’s providing the latest in patient positioning technology and devices for knee surgery. Used in conjunction with the De Mayo Universal Distractor®, the De Mayo Knee Positioner® is like having “another pair of hands” in the operating room, freeing up OR staff for other time-saving responsibilities.

The De Mayo Knee Positioner® is secured to the OR table by the De Mayo Push Button™ Clamp, an operating table rail clamp that significantly decreases OR set-up time. The clamp is fastened to the operating table simply by squeezing its top and bottom jaws closed on the table’s rail and then locking into place with a twist of the device’s knob. The clamp is quickly and easily removed by pushing the release buttons on the device, lowering the bottom jaw of the clamp.
