BlueALPS™MEDSource, Inc - MED<em>Source</em>, Inc. Newsletter Oct Nov 2017 – Bioskills Rental Product – Blue ALPS” width=”250″ height=”188″ class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-8667″ /></h4>
<p>We have good news to share! MEDSource has received approval on a Trademark for our BlueALPS™ from the US Patent and Trademark Office. BlueALPS™ is the third and latest addition to our ALPS product line that was first introduced in 2009. In case you’re wondering,  ALPS is an acronym for Adjustable Lateral Positioning System.</p>
<h4>ALPS Pegboard</h4>
<p>The original ALPS is a popular pegboard system created for spine and orthopedic labs, providing features for use with 22″ and 24″ wide lab<img decoding=
  • two center sections, one that is 2″ wider than the other (to accommodate different table widths)
  • two end sections, each with a blue surgical rail
  • eight positioning pegs in two different diameters (White = 1″, Black = 1.5″)
  • two flat bottom roll “bumps”

<p>A single pegboard platform with two moving pieces that adjust the pitch  angle from  10 to 50 degrees and eliminates the need for a radiolucent flat bottom gel bump. Although BreakingALPS was designed for lateral spine labs to simulate using a ‘breaking’ O.R. table, it is commonly used as a positioning pegboard for Direct Anterior Hip Replacement labs.</p>
<h4>And now, BlueALPS™</h4>
<p>A modular pegboard for use with ‘breaking’ surgical tables, such as STERIS 3080 & 3085, Skytron 6500, and other tables where pegboard positioning is needed on both the main torso and foot sections. A single  BlueALPS™ is a better choice than using two standard pegboards, as labs have done in the past.</p>
<p>BlueALPS™ consists of:</p>
<ul style=
  • one 24″ wide by 30″ long torso section
  • two extensions, 24″ wide by 7.5″ long, all dovetail connected to each other
  • eight yellow positioning pegs (1.25″ diameter)
