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.
