Innovative Medical Products’ SteriBump® Combats Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) at the Surgical Site

Innovative Medical Products’ SteriBump® Combats Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) at the Surgical Site

PLAINVILLE, Conn. (April 5, 2019) – As every OR staff member knows, any material entering the sterile field during surgery needs to be as free from contaminants as possible in order to prevent surgical site infection. Because Innovative Medical Products’ lint-free SteriBump® positioner is designed for single-use, there is no possibility of cross-contamination. This guaranteed sterility also frees up operating room personnel from having to bundle together sterile towels and other cloths to create makeshift limb support, saving valuable OR and sterile processing departments’ time.

 

Safer than cloth bundlings, SteriBump surgical bump is a latex-free, contoured, polyurethane foam block with a closed-cell geometry that doesn’t have the particulate breakdown of cloth. Ready to use for multiple applications, SteriBump® is cost-effective, providing secure, physical support that is ideal for shoulder abduction during lateral shoulder arthroscopy, incision closure of total hip or knee surgery, vascular surgery, extremity trauma, carpal tunnel, and other procedures. The IMP positioning solution will also not shift or move during surgery as often happens with cloth bundling.

 

SteriBump’s contour design cradles the patient’s extremities in the sterile field and its rectangular shape lets OR personnel select multiple positioning heights or angles. The IMP solution also offers a consistent size and stable density for a sterile platform that proves to be less costly and less labor-intensive than having OR staff put together a handmade cloth bundle. With the 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. 

    - Anonymous -Central Sterile Services (CSS) Administrator
  • "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
