New Gel-Infused Memory Foam Base Pad for Innovative Medical Products’ MorphBoard® Modular Peg Board System Significantly Improves Patient Safety
PLAINVILLE, Conn. (June 21, 2017) – Innovative Medical Products’ new Gel-Infused Memory Foam Base Pad for IMP’s MorphBoard® modular peg board system significantly improves patient safety, especially involving bariatric patients.
Unique in the industry and available only through Innovative Medical Products, the IMP pads are infused with proprietary formulated gel beads that provide 30% greater load distribution than standard memory foam pads, as demonstrated by independent pressure mapping tests.
The gel-infused pad’s greater load distribution improves the reduction of the possibility of pressure ulcers that could result from patients’ lying for a protracted period of time in the lateral position.
Along with its two modular end boards, IMP’s MorphBoard® features a lightweight centerboard module that can be easily adjusted to accommodate bariatric patients for total hip surgery. The MorphBoard®’s 20” wide, 30” long, centerboard module, when rotated horizontally, “morphs” into a 30” wide section large enough to support most any size abdomen.
The MorphBoard® enables OR personnel to simply roll patients onto their sides for easy stabilization using the various peg-hole options. This eliminates any strenuous lifting of the patient into an exact location as with other positioning systems.
