De Mayo Universal Distractor®

De Mayo Universal Distractor®

The De Mayo Universal Distractor® applies finite pressure to the femur outside the knee joint. For use with De Mayo Knee Positioners®

Catalog: #907

The De Mayo Universal Distractor® applies finite pressure to the femur outside the knee joint.  It allows an unobstructed view into the posterior capsule without the use of lamina spreaders, or a second pair of hands to apply traction.  Maximum view allows for easy insertion of instruments, trials, and implants while performing Uni, TKA, ACL and Tibial Plateau surgeries.

  • Finite joint distraction without obstructing your field of vision
  • Works without tying up a pair of hands or relying on lamina spreaders
  • Improves access to the posterior aspect of the joint for removal of osteophytes, resected bone, bone cement, and cautery applications
  • Improves MIS techniques for component insertion and prevents component damage
  • Opens medial and lateral compartments without the use of a “stress” post
  • A surgeon-controlled distraction of the compartments reducing potential overstress to the patient’s soft tissue
  • Tension release lever to fine-tune spacing or disengage distraction
Associated Surgical Positioners:

Redesigned carriage with improved holding power featuring the "Varus Tilt" Control Slide
