Humbles LapWrap® Positioning Pad Provides More Security for the Patient and Greater Versatility for the Surgical Team

Easy-to-use positioning pad not only secures patients’ arms during surgery but also allows access for IV tubes and leads for anesthesia

PLAINVILLE, Conn., (Aug. 22, 2017) – The Humbles LapWrap® Positioning Pad, from Innovative Medical Products, secures patients’ arms by their sides during surgery. The LapWrap® helps prevent shoulder injuries by not allowing a patient’s arm to fall from the side of the operating table. It also protects neurological structures by preventing hyperextension of the elbow. The easy-to-use, soft-foam pad not only positions patients’ arms but also allows access for IV tubes and leads for anesthesia. In fact, the LapWrap® was initially designed by an anesthesiologist for the anesthesia provider.

Providing more security for the patient and more versatility for the surgical team with its hook and loop material, the LapWrap® is designed to meet AORN recommendations in “Recommended practices for positioning the patient in the perioperative practice setting” to prevent tissue injury and ischemia often caused by tucking patients’ arms at their sides.

As one surgeon, who successfully tried the LapWrap® pad, remarked, “It used to be a hassle tucking arms and this product makes it simple with its soft foam padding protecting the patient. I’ve asked to have it used in all my [surgical] cases.”

The Humbles LapWrap® is laminated on both sides with loop material and has additional hook fasteners on the center cut-out strap providing more options for securing the patient. This allows the positioner’s latex-free foam straps, for example, to be placed between the operating table and the side rail, wrapped around the side rail and then back onto themselves for extra security. This addition helps to secure the patient directly to the OR table. The IMP positioning pad also comes with optional extension fasteners giving the surgical team more flexibility in securing patients during bariatric procedures.

The LapWrap® is manufactured for single use and is universally sized to accommodate any patient. In addition, the innovative device protects the neurological structures of the elbow and acts as a warming blanket for the patient. Used with hook and loop fasteners, the LapWrap® is simply configured for quick, easy securing of a patient’s arms and can be trimmed with scissors for better viewing of wire leads, tubing or connections.

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."
