Innovative Medical Products’ SteriBump®: a sterile-ready, single-use, foam platform that saves valuable time in the operating room

Innovative Medical Products’ pre-sterile SteriBump® surgical bump is a multi-use, foam support that is ideal for shoulder abduction during lateral shoulder arthroscopy, incision closure of total hip or knee surgery, vascular surgery, extremity trauma, and carpal tunnel procedures.

SteriBump’s contoured, cradle-shape design provides a more secure elevated positioning of the patient’s extremities in the sterile field, and its overall rectangular shape offers a choice of multiple heights and angles. Latex and lint-free, IMP’s rigid polyurethane-foam platform will not shift or move during surgery as often happens with cloth bundling. Using the SteriBump is easier, faster, and safer than bundling cloth towels for surgical procedures.

With the single-use SteriBump, there is never a question of sterility -- eliminating cross-contamination. The IMP solution not only reduces the potential for foreign particulates becoming airborne and entering a surgical site, but the sterile platform’s consistent size and stable density prove to be less costly and less labor-intensive than having OR staff put together a handmade cloth bundle.

SteriBump is guaranteed sterile and also frees up operating room scrub techs, nurses, or physician assistants from having to hold a limb during certain surgical procedures or having to bundle together sterile towels and other cloths to create makeshift limb support. With SteriBump, it’s like having an extra pair of hands in the OR.

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."

    - Brenda Conbeer -OR Inventory Coordinator
