“Avoid candy cane stirrups when possible…Boot type stirrups, which support the foot and calf, distribute pressure more evenly, reducing risk of extreme localized pressure on any one area of the foot or leg. They also allow for controlled and limited abduction. This safety feature reduces the risk of stirrup slippage or dropping the leg during adjustment of the leg position.”

Allen® Gynecology / Laparoscopy / Urology

Allen offers a wide range of stirrups to fit your positioning needs. Allen® Yellofins® Stirrups are the gold standard in lithotomy positioning. Yellofins Stirrups allow for easy adjustment of abduction and lithotomy while maintaining the sterile field. The boot is designed to cover and protect the head of the fibula and hence, the peroneal nerve.

Allen® Ultrafins® Stirrups are an upgrade of the Yellofins Stirrup. The reinforced rod and joint assembly and the flexible boot make the system capable of positioning a patient weighing up to 800 lbs. (363 kg). Allen® Pediatric Stirrups are designed to accommodate pediatric patients of all ages. Easy to use and comfortable, the Allen® Junior PAL® Stirrups and Little PAL® Stirrups provide secure leg positioning for pediatric patients of different ages.
