patient tables for the doctor’s office have to accommodate everyone from small
children to patients as heavy as 500 lbs or more. They need to have a
full, infinitely adjustable range of motion that allows the clinician easy
access to any body site. They need to assure gentle, precise and predictable
motion to keep patients comfortable and avoid any possible risk of injury. They
need to be robust, reliable and adaptable. And these are just the basic
and Treatment Depend on Motion
more stringent requirements apply in specialist treatment centers, the
radiology department and the operating room. For example, the sophisticated
patient tables used with CT scanners and other imaging machines require
extremely fine motion in precise coordination with the imaging machine’s
motion. If the motion isn’t right, the images will be unusable.
Motion for Better Patient Care
it right takes servo motors, linear positioners and other motion components
compact enough to fit in a confined space, outside of the detector’s line of
vision. When motion requirements are complex, highly adaptable solutions such
as multi-axis precision tables and drives can provide a simple solution.
addition to meeting size constraints, motion components must be robust and
precise enough to avoid introducing any compliance into the system. Absolute
reliability is also essential to avoid any unscheduled downtime that requires
costly, disruptive rescheduling of patients. Most important, the best possible
motion helps clinicians deliver the best possible care.
