Engineered for superior pressure redistribution and durability, the new formula TUFFease® gel products utilize a proprietary, plant oil-based blend that doesn’t rely entirely on petroleum. Most other gel pads on the market are made with petroleum-based formulas. Besides the environmental benefit, some of the new TUFFease® gel shaped product’s bottom surface is more durable than other pressure redistribution products because of an added thickness that helps prevent damage or tearing when the pad is being moved or placed in storage. The increased durability can lead to longer use, thus cost savings, in hospital operating and recovery rooms where pressure redistribution products are necessary to help prevent pressure ulcers.
In addition to its increased durability, the new IMP gel pad has been produced with a sleeker, shinier, surface material to alleviate skin shear and give greater protection against skin breakdown. The nearly wrinkle-free cover also makes the gel pad easier to clean with all approved topical hospital cleaning products.
The patent pending LapWrap™ Positioning Pad secures patients’ arms by their sides during surgery or medical imaging procedures. The easy-to-use, soft-foam pad is ideal for laparoscopic and robotic surgeries.
The LapWrap™ Positioning Pad answers the concerns of the AORN Guidelines for protection of the neurological structures of the elbow when keeping arms close to the body. The hook and loop fasteners simply secure patients’ arms while giving the anesthesiologist better viewing of leads, tubing and connections. No more draw sheets tucked under the patient are required, while the IMP solution also acts as a warming blanket. The latex-free positioning pad is manufactured for single use and is universally sized to accommodate any patient.
