Innovative Medical Products has introduced a unique solution for securing a patient’s arm rotation during arthroscopic shoulder surgery without the need of an assistant to hold the rotation of the arm for an extended period of time at the desired position. By freeing up an assistant, the De Mayo RoTractor increases the surgical team’s efficiency. Maintaining shoulder distraction, the De Mayo RoTractor delivers definitive, incremental amounts of arm rotation by means of a spring-and-notch mechanism that responds as the patient’s forearm is rotated in either an internal or external orientation. Any of the rotation positions can be securely locked in place for complete surgeon control of the patient’s shoulder in the sterile field. Although the RoTractor can be adapted to most any lateral positioning pole-system, it can only be effectively used with IMP’s forearm Phase4 Gel Splint to achieve exact rotation and to completely free up an assistant. The Gel Splint’s three positioning holes align perfectly with the three connecting buttons on the patent-pending De Mayo RoTractor, allowing it to rotate and precisely position the patient’s arm in the desired orientation. The easy-to-apply, non-irritating splint is also designed with a natural wrist contour for increased comfort while maintaining patient anatomy and improving patient safety.
