The Schaerer 7100 Operating Table is specifically designed for maximum C-arm access. An offset telescopic column delivers an unobstructed imaging area of 74.8 inches by 14.45 inches. The Schaerer 7100 is ideal for disciplines where imaging access is paramount, including Thorax and Abdominal Surgery, Spinal Column Surgery, Cardiovascular Surgery and General Surgery. In the beach-chair position ideal patient positioning is achieved, resulting in unobstructed surgical access to the operating field. The stability of the Schaerer 7100 along with the possibility to lower the table top in the reverse position gives ample space for the surgeon's feet when sitting at the head of the table, this is ideal when the patient is positioned flat for Head and Neck Surgery. Two independent drive systems in the operating table base provide fail safe operation for patient safety, one system is operated from the hand control while the other is operated from the override panel.
