IMP's' family of hip positioners provides simple, adjustable positioning for any sized patient
Innovative Medical Products' system saves time and lowers risk for every hip procedure, putting patients in a better position for positive outcomes
Developed by Edward De Mayo, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon, the De Mayo Hip Positioner® system is based on a secure patient positioning device that enables OR personnel to "build" the positioner around the patient, reducing stress on OR staff.The IMP system saves time and lowers risk for every hip procedure.
The system's collection of stabilizing bars and support pads offers the right option for any patient body type – even the most challenging of obese patients. With the IMP positioner, surgeons get unobstructed access to the surgical site with support and security for obese patients that can't be found in any other device.
"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," notes Dr. Edward De Mayo.
Besides the De Mayo Hip Positioner®, IMP's family of hip positioners includes:
The Universal Lateral Positioner®employs a versatile system of plates, arms, swivels and pads to maximize positioning options. Successfully positioning patients since 1984, IMP's Gold Standard for lateral positioning has a complete choice of options to meet any patient need; plus, it fits into a convenient hard case for easy storage and transportation.
TheMorphBoard® pegboard system is the most stable patient positioning pegboard available for lateral decubitus positions. Modular components allow simple conversion for obese patient support on any OR table and multiple peg lengths provide a versatile, secure fit. The IMP solution comes with Patient Protective Padstoprotect from cross-contamination.
