Estape TrenMAX Offers Alternative to Foam-Based Positioning Pads

The Estape TrenMAX from Innovative Medical Products is a new positioning system that provides surgeons and OR staff an alternative to foam-based solutions when positioning patients for Trendelenburg or Reverse Trendelenburg gynecological surgeries such as hysterectomies and abdominal myomectomies.

TrenMAX boasts more than twice the standard coefficient of friction compared to memory-foam positioners. It provides a secure positioning system possible for patient movement control in today’s market. This means patient movement no longer has to be expected as a “normal” occurrence that regularly comes with Trendelenburg or Reverse Trendelenburg positioning, or when tilting the OR table and patient. All of these orientations can be safely carried out during the same surgical procedure, if necessary, without having the surgeon or staff take time to reposition the patient or the robot because of patient movement.

The key component of the TrenMAX system is IMP’s proprietary Sticky Pad. The Sticky Pad adheres directly to the patient’s torso and fastens securely to the OR table’s side rails to prevent the patient from moving or sliding off the OR table. For maximum, secure fixation of the base pad to the OR table, TrenMAX employs patent-pending TrenMAX clamps that tightly secure the base pad’s hook-and-loop material straps fastened to the OR table’s side rails.

In addition to its holding power, TrenMAX provides an arm strap system that allows access to leads and IVs by anesthesiologists, as well as preventing potential neurological impairment, per AORN recommendations, caused by sheet tucking; and there is not a requirement for a chest strap, improving ventilation. Also, the system doesn’t use shoulder bolsters preventing potential nerve damage by eliminating pressure on the brachial plexus caused by shoulder-holder devices.
