SunMedica’s kneeGRIP Matrix was awarded the second place Excellence in Surgical Products Award in the Tables, Positioning and Accessories category.
The kneeGRIP Matrix supports the lower extremity during total knee replacement surgery and frees the hands of the assistant. It allows the knee position to be quickly changed from extension to flexion resulting in decreased operative times. The Matrix boot and Matrix plate are made of aluminum and there are no moving parts. The sterilized Matrix boot portion is easily and quickly secured to the leg. The sterilized Matrix plate rests on the sterile drapes. The ball that is attached to the Matrix boot easily clicks into any of the many receiving holes of the Matrix plate. The amount of flexion of the knee is easily changed by just lifting the Matrix boot out of one receiving holes in the Matrix plate and clicking it into another of the holes in the Matrix plate. The kneeGRIP Matrix avoids electrical burns because it has no direct contact with the operating table.
