  • Cleaning: Fixed operating table is easier to clean than mobile operating table because the movable table has wheels that are difficult to clean underneath.
  • Space: The main limitation of the fixed operating table is that it cannot be moved for different room layouts or for different procedure positioning requirements.
  • Communication with Diagnostic Systems: The mobile operating table cannot be used to interface with the MR, CT and angiographic diagnostic systems. A fixed operating table is required for this purpose as the system needs a fixed communication point for proper operation.
  • Specialization: The portable operating table is best suited for use as a general operating table.

All of Mediland’s portable operating table product lines are flexible to accommodate different surgical procedures and operating room space configurations.

What is the best height of the operating table?

To meet the ergonomic requirements of surgeons and other surgical staff, an adjustable table is essential. Most operating tables today have the ability to adjust the height between 73 cm and 122 cm. The adjustability of a standard operating table is sufficient for open surgery, but may not be sufficient for the growing trend towards laparoscopic surgery. According to a study in the Journal of the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons, the ability to adjust the height of the operating table can have serious consequences during laparoscopic surgery. When the table cannot be adjusted low enough for a procedure, the surgeon must compensate by lowering their arm and vice versa when it cannot be adjusted high enough – climbing a ladder.

The researchers found that the current operating table was too low for 95% of surgeons performing the laparoscopic procedure, with the tallest surgeons having the most difficulty. Working on debilitated patients is another example of a situation in which a height-adjustable table becomes important. Debilitated patients require a higher table top when they are placed supine on the table. If the table does not adjust to the desired height, the surgeon may have to stand on a stool or pedestal. Again, this creates fatigue that can lead to operational errors. Finally, surgeons who prefer to remain in place during surgery may express preference for operating tables with lower table top profiles.

Want a modular operating table?
