Hill-Rom Surgical Solutions Launches Allen Advance Table Lateral System

Hill-Rom Surgical Solutions has launched the Allen Advance Table Lateral System, a unique new offering to compliment the Allen Advance Table.

“Our new Advance Table Lateral System is designed for lateral approaches in spinal surgery,” said Dr. Dirk Ehlers, president, Hill-Rom Surgical Solutions. “The System provides a flexing, lateral platform and allows for a unique 90 degree rotation of the patient from lateral directly into a prone position when used with the Allen Advance Table.”

Choll W. Kim, M.D., Ph.D., at The Spine Institute of San Diego, is an expert in minimally invasive lateral spine surgery and assisted with the development of this product. Kim and his team have been using the Allen Advance Lateral System and are already seeing benefits.

“We’ve noticed some significant improvements in time efficiency and a drastic decrease in the number of people that are required to maneuver the patient from one position to another,” said Kim. “Furthermore, the development of the flat radiolucent table capable of flexion along with refinements in the hip bump and arm positioners, makes lateral positioning more stable and affords superior intra-operative imaging capabilities. This is a significant improvement over current systems, both in terms of time efficiency as well as ergonomics.”
