IMP’s Expand-A-Peg Locking Peg addresses peg ‘wobble’

Innovative Medical Products’ Expand-A-Peg Locking Peg eliminates intra-operative peg motion and disengagement, keeping patients securely in place for the entire surgical procedure.
IMP’s Expand-A-Peg Locking Peg expands the base of the peg while it is set in the pegboard hole with just a twist of the locking mechanism’s cap. The result is a positively secure peg that will not move or dislodge during surgery. The Expand-A-Peg Locking Peg is designed for IMP’s modular MorphBoard Positioning System but is also compatible with most other pegboard systems.

“With traditional pegs, the tendency is for them to move or wobble in the pegboard hole or even come out of the hole entirely during surgery because they have not been seated properly,” said Earl Cole, IMP vice president. “Our locking mechanism completely and securely seats the peg in the hole so that the patient will never lose positioning. This assurance is a huge benefit for the surgeon who doesn’t have to worry about a peg’s dislodging.”

IMP’s gold-colored, aluminum peg locking system comes in four lengths: 8, 9, 12 and 14 inches.
