However, if you are planning to buy ultrasound tables for your hospitals, make sure to take into account all the necessary features of the tables before buying.

  • Firstly, always check the wheels and brakes of the table properly. These medical tables are frequently moved from one room to another for carrying out different medical examinations. So make sure that the wheels are designed smoothly and allow easy mobility so that the patients can be moved freely from an exam room to a procedure room without any difficulty. Normally, the ultrasound table has 2-inch casters. Moreover, apart from wheels, brakes are equally important. Mostly the table wheels have lock system, which helps to secure the table on the floor and prevent any movement.

  • Stirrups are an important feature of these medical tables. Easy adjustable stirrups are designed to adjust the ankle position of the patient while carrying out any medical examination. Once the foot section is lowered, the stirrups are easily slid out and moved to the position that best fits the procedure.

  • These tables are also available with handheld controller as well. These controllers are used to adjust the position of the table according to the patient’s requirement. This controller is used to activate height and motion. There are two types of handheld controllers’ i.e. handheld remote and foot controller. The handheld remote is used to adjust the height of the table depending on the patient’s height and comfort whereas the foot controller is used to adjust the back of the table according to the patient’s position.

  • Now days, these tables comes with a new battery feature which allows the movement of table automatically. With the introduction of this feature, it has become convenient to carry patient all around the hospital. Therefore, if you are planning to buy, you can consider the table with the battery feature.

  • Look for knee crutches, which are important to hold the patient knee in the right position. The knee should be adjusted in a manner that nothing wrong occurs because of the movement.

Therefore, do not forget to look for the aforementioned features, if you are planning to buy a medical table for your clinic of hospital.
