Innovation brought to the table

Merivaara has launched two new operating tables – the Smarter Practico and Grand Promerix – exclusively distributed by Bender UK in the UK and Ireland.

They expand the Finnish company’s operating theatre portfolio, complementing its Q Flow surgical light and OpenOR AV solutions. Bender says the Smarter Practico (pictured) addresses the need for flexible mobile operating tables ‘being driven by a rise in minimally invasive keyhole surgeries’. It said: “A lower table is both easier for senior patients to rest upon, and enhances the surgeon’s ability to work comfortably. The Practico height extends to 1,143 mm, while it can drop to 540 mm, making it one of the lowest height operating tables available.” Merivaara’s CTO, Jyrki Nieminen, said: “Tables for day surgery and elective procedures need to be quickly prepared for the next patient. The Practico is designed for quick and easy cleaning. The screws are hidden, so surgical matter doesn’t accumulate on them, and the base slopes, so fluids flow off. When we developed the bellows, we made sure a finger could reach into the bottom of the grooves.”  The ‘extremely adaptable and robust’ table has a 400 kg lifting capacity, and offers tilt angle, Trendelenburg angle, and angles for both the back and leg sections. 

The Grand Promerix table is a heavyduty, electro-hydraulic operating table for demanding surgeries, with a 490 kg lifting capacity, modular tabletop, and a wide range of accessories. Bender said: “Options for specialised procedures include divided leg sections, gynaecological sections, a shoulder arthroscopy section, and a variety of head rests. The table is also suitable for robotic surgery and imaging. Inward cut-outs increase foot space, so surgeons can stand closer to the patient, a new slim base gives increased C-arm access, while new bellows, seat section, and hidden castors, simplify cleaning/sterilisation.” 

The new tables are available for clinical trials or hands-on training/demonstration at Bender UK’s operating theatre showroom in Ulverston, Cumbria.
