Clamps onto OR table railing over any sterile drape sheet. Used with both the Supine and the Lateral Positioners.

 
  22187-1300 Wrist Support    Slides onto the distal section of the Supine Positioner to support the patients hand or wrist.

22187-1300 Wrist Support

Slides onto the distal section of the Supine Positioner to support the patients hand or wrist.

 
  22187-1100 Supine Positioner    Loads into the Base Support and accepts the Humeral Support, Wrist Support, and the Reducer/Distractor components as needed. Adjusts vertically in the Base Support to accommodate various arm lengths and desired static elbow position. A hinge allows the Supine Positioner to be extended for supine suspended or abducted positions.

Increased Facility Capacity and Potential Cost Savings

 

Multiple assistants  are typically required to stabilize the humerus and forearm for each supine elbow  surgical procedure. Even with this additional manpower, a constantly drifting surgical field often prolongs and complicates these cases.

Lateral decubitus or even prone patient positioning may be utilized to help stabilize the humerus for elbow surgery. Unfortunately, there is significant time and effort required to position a patient in this manner. This type of patient positioning also frequently limits elbow access for the surgeon, and may be less desirable than supine positioning for anesthesia and patient airway access.

Figure 1 shows the time savings that one surgeon and one facility experienced  with use of the ElbowLOC® Arm Positioning System for supine patient positioning when compared to their experience with lateral patient positioning.

Analysis of one facility’s operating room time savings when using the ElbowLOC® Arm Positioning System demonstrates the economic value of  this device.

 This particular facility performs an average of 550 orthopaedic procedures per month. The analysis involves actual operating expenses and profits for the facility including salary cost per OR minute and is based on a 40 hour work week with 80% utilization. The average procedural time for the facility is 70 minutes. The time savings generated from use of the ElbowLOC® allows 6 additional cases to be performed each month within those same time constraints. The analysis assumes the same profitability of the facility’s average procedure. [2]

 

Figure 2 demonstrates the increased annual revenue a facility can experience when utilizing the ElbowLOC® and supine patient positioning for elbow surgery versus lateral patient positioning without the ElbowLOC®.
