Patient-Care Table Lift System Offers Stability And Ergonomic Ease

American Sales Development LLC (ASD) announces the ErgoSwiss TA type ergonomic table frame system that allows automatic height adjustment from sitting to standing range and great stability even at its most extended position. Patient care equipment such as massage tables, beds and examination tables often require adjustable height capability, for ease and comfort of the patient and the operator. This can pose a stability problem when fully extended. Excessive movement or sway of the table surface at is most extended position is unacceptable. To address these concerns, ErgoSwiss AG has developed the TA series, a guided table frame system that incorporates height adjustability and increased stability even at full extension due to the use of linear bearing guided cylinders incorporated into the structure of the table frame components. The TA System table frame capacity is 600kg and at its full extension the increase in lateral movement over the non-extended movement is 2mm measured 500mm away from the table center. This stability is achieved by the use of an innovative guided roller system that performs the dual functions of decreasing friction between the cylinder's moving parts and the frame structure that supports the table. The roller guide system is comprised of a series of engineering plastic rollers supported within a frame that attaches to the table leg interior. The rollers interface with the cylinder's shaft and provide smooth and silent support to the shafts as they move through the range of motion. The table frame components include the oval shaped legs, cross members, tabletop supports, base supports and feet. The lift system mechanism consists of a simple single acting hydraulic pump with either a manual or an electronic control, which controls the moving cylinders contained within the table legs. The system can be configured for up to ten legs for control of long continuous work surfaces. The framing system is easily assembled into a variety two, three, or four leg tables. Table travel lengths are available in 150, 200, 300, 400 and 500 mm with a maximum load capability of 600kg. The cylinder legs are constructed within an aluminum tube and are thus self contained and able to withstand side loads with no additional reinforcement. ErgoSwiss provides a variety of pumps and both manual hand crank of remote control electronic operation All elements are modular and when assembled provide a clean modern looking table frame. ADA Standards for accessible design can be exceeded by utilizing ErgoSwiss lift components.
