Innovative Medical Products announces the Multi-Groove Base Plate, eliminating the need for OR personnel to move a patient into an exact orientation on the base plate without compromising patient stability during hip surgery. The multiple-groove plate gives OR personnel more flexibility and positioning options than a single-groove plate.
Because each patient’s anatomy is not exactly the same, it is often a challenge for OR personnel to move patients into an exact orientation on a single-groove base plate that will allow the anterior support column, lumbar plate or IMP’s patented hyperflexion plate to be precisely aligned with the patient’s bodily contours. The Multi-Groove Base Plate lets OR personnel use any of its five grooves to lock in the accessories at a location of choice, providing ultimate flexibility in ensuring a fixed, stable, lateral decubitus position.
IMP’s Multi-Groove Base Plate is designed for use with the Universal Lateral Positioner™ System. The IMP system includes a removable inferior arm and independently adjustable superior arm that allows more accurate contact with the iliac crest. The system also provides the patented hyperflexion plate that allows up to 120 degrees of flexion during testing for range of motion. A contour lumbar support, with a latex-free foam pad, conforms to patient anatomy, while improving stability and pressure distribution during surgery. Unique clip-on dual compression foam pads for the anterior support arms provide unsurpassed performance in preventing skin irritation and eliminate adhesive build up.
