Product description and innovation synopsis:
A Sterile Knee Positioner used on top of the OR table or as a sterile extension off the end of the table. It combines the successful features of IMP’s original De Mayo Knee Positioner with improved stability built into the new carriage and the new OR Table siderail clamp. The unique features provides the surgeon options to perform a total knee replacement in a traditional approach with the patient’s leg on top of the OR table or the patient’s operative leg extended off the table. This technique reduces stress on the surgeon’s back eliminating leaning over the patient to operate.
What sets this product apart from others available in the industry?
The original manufacturer of our Patented Sterile Table Extension Positioner, the V2 E is superior to the competition utilizing time tested materials since inception in 2003.
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes?
The V2 E provides several innovative benefits for surgeon and patient. The positioner increases patient safety with new features to the knee positioner’s locking mechanisms. The system’s carriage has been fitted with a sliding bar that prevents a patient’s knee or leg from tilting out, regardless of patient height or weight. Patients stay solidly in place during the entire surgical procedure, while still allowing the surgeon to adjust the rotation, flexion, and extension of the knee with varying degrees of lateral movement.
