PLAINVILLE, Conn. - Nov. 13, 2017 - PRLog -- Innovative Medical Products' Sterile Gel-infused Memory Foam Pads protect patients against pressure ulcers with 30% greater load distribution than standard memory foam pads, as demonstrated by independent pressure mapping tests.

Made exclusively for use with IMP's Knee Positioner® solutions, IMP's gel-infused pads distribute load more evenly across the foot and calf and, with the pads' larger coverage, are designed to accommodate most any size patient, meeting dimensional and density specifications for patient safety.

Used together, IMP's gel-infused pads and Knee Positioner® solutions help improve patient stability for open and minimally invasive surgeries.

"IMP's gel-infused memory foam pads," notes Earl Cole, IMP vice president, "not only help prevent the occurrence of pressure ulcers but also better ensure patient safety. As patients get bigger and bigger and actually begin to 'spill over' the edges of the positioning boot and traditionally-sized positioning pads, there comes a point where a standard memory foam pad will no longer be able to provide sufficient patient protection. Our gel-infused, larger pads are made to prevent this problem from happening."

IMP Gel-infused Memory Pads also come in a variety of shapes and sizes tailored to fit specific IMP patient positioning systems. These include:

·      Sterile Gel Foam Boot Pads designed for use with IMP's entire family of De Mayo Knee Positioners®; the boot pad is 1/2–inch larger than standard pads, improving coverage to the edges of the boot to accommodate obese patients.

·      Sterile Gel-Infused Memory Foam Universal Distractor® Pads that cover the entire edge of the boot.

·      Gel-Infused Memory Foam Pad for IMP's MorphBoard® Positioning System, employing IMP's modular pegboard lateral positioning method for total hip replacement surgery.
