Innovative Medical Products’ V2-E® Makes Life Easier on Surgeons

Innovative Medical Products’ V2-E® Makes Life Easier on Surgeons

PLAINVILLE, Conn. (March 22, 2018) – IMP's concern for the patient as well as the surgeon has evolved into the V2-E®, which minimizes surgeon fatigue and back pain during surgeries.

De Mayo V2 E® Knee Positioner: This “off the table” positioner is designed with both the surgeon and patient in mind. The IMP solution uses a patented sterile extension arm that extends the knee positioner base plate off the end of the OR table, enabling the surgeon to stand between the patient’s legs and allows the surgeon the ability to look straight down onto the surgical site. Surgeons no longer have to lean over the OR table when performing procedures. IMP is the first company in the marketplace to make and sell a sterile extension.

Besides these innovative benefits for the surgeon, the De Mayo V2 E® Knee Positioner increases patient safety with new features to the knee positioner’s locking mechanisms. The system’s carriage has been fitted with a sliding bar, the Varus Tilt Control, that prevents a patient’s knee or leg from tilting out, regardless of patient height or weight. Patients stay solidly in place during the entire surgical procedure, while still allowing the surgeon to adjust the rotation, flexion, and extension of the knee. The Varus Tilt Control allows varying degrees of lateral movement.

When an extension is not needed, surgeons can opt for the De Mayo V2 Knee Positioner® for surgical procedures carried out on top of the standard OR table. The De Mayo V2® employs the same features and components as the V2-E® but without the extension. The V2 base plate, along with the redesigned locking features in the new carriage, can be easily removed for cleaning. The pivot handle on the carriage allows precise control of flexion, tilt, and rotation. The new carriage design provides a better gripping capability by holding the positioner’s boot in place more securely than the original version.

  • “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.”

  • “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.”

  • 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."
