Introducing the PURIST, the next generation of leg positioning for anterior THR.
Innovative Orthopedic Technologies (IOT) announced its newest leg positioning system, the PURIST. Its design is based on our experience with the anterior approach over the past ten years.
The PURIST Leg Positioning System is designed to boost efficiency and surgeon control throughout the anterior THR procedure.
Over the past ten years, anterior approach THR has evolved and its surgical techniques have been refined. Today, surgically skilled and experienced surgeons with better understanding of the requirements for efficient leg positioning and surgical exposure are trying to unburden their OR teams from sometimes cumbersome specialty trauma tables used to perform anterior approach THR in many centers. Economic pressures have further accelerated the adoption of no-table techniques that allow surgeons to control leg positioning, range of motion and hip stability more freely. However, proper and consistent leg rotation and extension can be challenging and tiring without the use of an appropriate device, applying constant traction is impossible.
Equipped with Swiss precision and an ergonomically-shaped design, the PURIST offers many clinical, operational and logistical advantages making it an ideal solution for Ambulatory Surgery Centers and Outpatient THR.
The Purist enables all essential leg movements necessary for anterior THR in a condensed and efficient manner. It is built to perform independent DA THR movements on a graduated scale and its enhanced design allows the surgeon to control rotation, gross and fine traction intra-operatively and without the help from non-sterile personnel. The boot quick connect facilitates range of motion stability testing. The patented auto traction release mechanism engages automatically when the leg is lowered and restores traction at 0 degrees extension.
The PURIST offers a small OR footprint of 1.5 x 3 ft, weighs only 40kg/80lbs and can be ships to other facilities in two boxes. Its quick setup, mobility and staff-friendly operation facilitates back-to-back surgeries. Finally its modular design provides for optimal serviceability.
