View Product Page
Catalog: #1092

The latest generation of the McGuire Pelvic Positioner, which was IMP's original lateral positioner for THA. The McGuire was one of the first hip positioners with over 25 years of clinical success. With removable and independently adjustable anterior arms, it allows for more accurate contact with the iliac crests and accommodates all patient anatomies. The ULP provides stable, lateral decubitus positioning and creates a reproducible point of reference for primary and revision arthroplasty. Our patented hyperflexion plate allows up to 120° of flexion during ROM testing.

  • “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
