Innovative Medical Products has announced the Humbles TrenWrap -- a new positioning pad system with two unique features that will securely anchor a patient prior to positioning in Trendelenburg and reverse Trendelenburg for robotic and laparoscopic surgeries. First, the system’s Pre-Load Rail Clamps secure the straps of the positioning base pad, locking the pad tightly in position to the OR table’s side rails. Second, the TrenWrap uses the proprietary Phase 4 adhesive material that applies directly to the patient’s skin, affixing the patient to the TrenWrap positioning pad system. Because the patient lies on top of the TrenWrap adhesive material, which adheres to the base pad, there are no straps or restraints covering the patient’s chest, thus allowing unobstructed ventilation and eliminating concerns for volume of breathing, while securing the patient firmly in place. The Humbles TrenWrap also minimizes the potential of impingement to the brachial plexus by eliminating any restrictions to the shoulders, neck, or head, because there is no need for shoulder posts or restraints. In conjunction with the TrenWrap that secures the patient for Trendelenburg positioning, IMP employs the patented Humbles LapWrap technology for safely securing patients’ arms to their sides during surgery, while making them completely accessible to anesthesiologists for viewing IV and monitoring leads.
