SteriBump® is a sterile, cost-effective, time-saving alternative to cloth bundling for patient protection and support in the O.R. In place of cloth bundling, Innovative Medical Products created SteriBump®, a latex-free, contoured, polyurethane foam block with a closed-cell geometry, to significantly reduce foreign particulates during surgery. The most frequently identified debris contributing to post-surgical complications are lint and fibers. Where do lint fibers come from? One study found that cotton towels are the #1 producer of lint which has been identified as the most frequent contaminant carrier contributing to post-surgical complications. Lint fiber contaminates can carry microorganisms that are capable of increasing a patients infection risk, such as producing adhesions, infections, granulomas, and blood clots.
