Frontier Medical Innovation's GStirrup.

2nd Place

The GStirrup from Frontier Medical Innovations is a patient positioning tool that provides safety, stability, and comfort to patients' legs when in the lithotomy position. It can be attached to any exam table in seconds with no tools required. The GStirrup supports the foot and lower leg. Many current lithotomy positioners support beltind the knee, which can cause nerve damage. The GStirrup simply slides over current footrests to economically and effectively provide support for patients when in the lithotomy position. According to the company, a few key benefits of the GStirrup are:

* It reduces the risk for nerve damage.

* It can be attached to any exam table or procedure table, as there are no accessories required.

* It is easily portable, as one pair of GStirrups can be used between the OR, surgery center, ER, and doctor's office.
