An OT Table is also called an operating table, sometimes called the operating room table. A Surgical table is a table on which the patient lies during a surgical operation. This surgical equipment is usually found inside the surgery room of a hospital.
An OT table or a operating table system is basically made up of three components: an OT table hydraulic column, the surgical table top and the transporter. Modern operation theater table systems are available as both stationary and mobile units. There are a wide range of hydraulic operating table that can be used for both general surgery and for specialist disciplines. Mobile operating table, however, tend to be equipped with a specific discipline in mind. The base, column and table top form a unit.
Additional elements can be adapted to the operating table. This flexibility is very important since it enables OT table electric to be adapted to suit the relevant patient or the surgical discipline.
Another special feature of the orthopedic OT table system is the ability to use appropriate interface modules to establish communication with diagnostics systems, for example, angiography, MR and CT. This is only possible with stationary columns since the systems require a fixed point.
