Just in time for the 125 years company jubilee: Schaerer Medical presents new surgical table

The only Swiss developer and producer of mobile operating tables laid the foundation stone in the year 1892 and celebrates this year its jubilee. Together with other activities Schaerer Medical launches a new operating table in the mid-range price segment: the Schaerer® axis 350. Beside of many other innovations the table has a new sliding function for an even bigger flexibility in surgical procedures.

(Muensingen/Switzerland, July 2017) – The schaerer® axis 350 surgical table (axis 350) convinces with its innovative features such as the revised hand control with a new design or the two independent control system with emergency control panel. With its sliding function up to 300 mm, the mobile versatility concept and the various accessories the axis 350 can be used for all surgical disciplines. The static patient weight capacity of 450 kg and the dynamic capacity of 220 kg allows surgeries even for patients with a high weight. The surgical table is available in two different height versions. This allows our customers to choose which table is suitable for their surgical needs. Different optional components round off the modularity of the new operating table – Mobile Versatility!

Hand Control
The innovative hand control with coloured touch display is available in two versions. Along with the conventional control via wire, there is now a wireless hand control (Bluetooth adapter). The arrangement of the control buttons, together with the touch display, allow an intuitive and safe working. A further function simplifies the operation of the surgical table: the backlit guided interface shows only the executable functions for certain positions. In addition, frequent used patient positions can be stored. The hand control is now no longer linked to a specific operating table and can be connected to all existing axis 350 within the hospital.

Always safe
The hand control works only with loaded batteries. However, the recharging may be forgotten after use of the surgical table. With the emergency control panel via foot pump this is no problem at all. The position is set via the control knob in the emergency panel and the operating table can be moved to the desired position with the foot pump.

The right direction
Two optional configurations help to move the axis 350 easily from A to B. On one hand the electrical drive unit moves the surgical table without any force safe and simple - even with a heavy weight patient. The fifth wheel on the other hand helps the medical staff to drive the table more comfortably. Both components can be installed later on.
Surgical disciplines
Due to the mobile versatility concept, various accessories and the high patient weight capacity, the axis 350 can be used in all surgical disciplines. From the General Surgery to Traumatological/Orthopaedic intervension is everything possible.
