Tri-Pull Secure Shoulder Solution Provides Rotation Control

The Tri-Pull Secure Shoulder Solution from Innovative Sports Medicine, a division of Innovative Medical Products Inc., employs three proven systems to confidently secure, distract and ensure precise rotation control of the shoulder during surgical procedures for sports-related injuries, without compromising the sterile field. The Tri-Pull solution includes ISM’s Reznik Universal Shoulder Positioner, De Mayo RoTractor, and Phase 4 Gel Splint.

The Reznik Universal Shoulder Positioner provides controlled shoulder distraction with three planes of adjustment for maximum flexibility. For additional protection, the positioner’s patented vertical safety stops eliminate concerns about the equipment slumping or falling onto the patient during surgery.

The De Mayo RoTractor adapter delivers complete patient control of the shoulder in the sterile field, holding the arm securely in place in varying degrees of rotation. The De Mayo RoTractor provides the surgeon not only better access to the surgical site but also the ability to “dial” in the rotation and lock it in place while maintaining distraction without utilizing an assistant.

The easy-to-apply, non-irritating Phase 4 Gel Splint is designed with a natural wrist contour for increased comfort while maintaining patient anatomy and improving patient safety. The splint’s three positioning holes work with any company’s pole-style shoulder positioner that utilizes hooks. In addition, these holes align perfectly with the De Mayo RoTractor adapter, allowing it to rotate and securely position the patient’s arm.

These three ISM systems also work independently and can be used with many manufacturers’ positioning products.
