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.

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."

    - Brenda Conbeer -OR Inventory Coordinator
