Joint Distraction Device
Innovative Medical Products, a provider of patient positioning devices for orthopedic surgical procedures, announces the De Mayo Universal Distractor™, a new patent-pending device that delivers precise, finite femoral joint distraction with a completely unobstructed view of the operative site and eliminates the need for lamina spreaders, a bone hook or manually pulling on the femur at the thigh throughout the surgical procedure. The product provides:
- Unobstructed view of the operative site.
- Reduced procedure time for Unicompartmental, Arthroscopies, ACL and TKA surgeries.
- A handle on the device that incrementally pumps the required tension to apply finite pressure to separate the joint space.
- Pressure Protector Pad protects the popliteal area of the knee from direct pressure to the popliteal nerve and soft tissue.
