IMP Maintains Legacy of McGuire Pelvic Positioner 35 Years after IMP's Founding
Innovative Medical Products' Universal Lateral Positioner® (ULP) originally linked to McGuire brand
"The McGuire was the first hip positioner and clamping device made specifically for rigid fixation of the pelvis in total hip replacement,"
The Universal Lateral Positioner® is now the gold standard for lateral positioning. It was the first hip positioner device designed for different patient anatomies. Utilizing its patented hyperflexion plate with its swivel arms on the anterior support column, it allows additional space up to 120oof flexion during range of motion (ROM) testing. The ULP's swivel arm, dense-foam, contour lumbar pads conform completely to patient anatomy, improving stability and pressure distribution. The positioner's five-groove base plate provides multiple locations for accessories and increases options to position attachments, not to reposition patients.
The IMP solution also provides multiple component options for standard and large ULP positioners with a baseplate that comes in two sizes, a standard 22" and a large 25" for obese patients. The ULP also comes with a storage case that keeps positioning components organized, improving OR efficiency.
True to the McGuire legacy, product improvements like the Universal Lateral Positioner® are part of IMP's continuing quest to create even better outcomes for surgeons and patients.
