Merivaara Introduces New Operating Table

Merivaara has unveiled a versatile operating table for elective procedures. The new, smarter Practico was designed to improve ergonomics with the industry’s widest range of posture possibilities.

“Customers have been asking for a table like this for years,” says Merivaara’s Jyrki Nieminen. “It has been in development for two years and we have received amazing feedback regarding the design, aesthetics and technical specifications.”

Flexible, mobile operating tables are in high demand due to the rise in minimally invasive surgeries. The Practico family of operating tables is modular for a wide variety of surgical procedures.

The Practico Max Hi goes up to 45 inches, while the Practico Max Lo goes down to 21.3 inches, making it one of the lowest mobile tables on the market.

The table can handle 617 pounds. When you combine height adjustability with the tilt angle, Trendelenburg angle, and angles for both the back and leg sections, the Practico is impressively adaptable.

The Practico mobile operating table is also smart. A safety sensor in the base cover automatically stops the movement of the table when the leg section touches the base. It also has a simple and easy-to-use hand control with an intuitive user interface and several memory positions, saving staff from unnecessary hassle.

The user interface is similar to other Merivaara products and can be connected to the Merivaara OpenOR integrated operating room management system. This is part of the Merivaara Fluent concept, which enhances the usability of operating rooms. When surgical staff have the right equipment they can give the best care safely and efficiently.
