The ORBIT PT works in conjunction with any TRUMPF mobile operating table to automate the patient transport process by allowing "one-nurse, one-button, no-lifting" transfer of patients from the bed to the OR table and back. The patient is wheeled to the ORBIT PT in the hospital bed, which is aligned on the non-sterile side of the ORBIT PT and safely locked in place. Using the remote control or control panel, the nurse adjusts the ORBIT PT top to the correct height and initiates the conveyance surface which transfers the patient from the bed to the ORBIT PT. Laser Stops safely maintain the patient in. Once the OR Table is locked in place, the nurse completes the transfer of the patient to the OR Table, again via remote control or control panel. The patient is brought into surgery on the mobile OR table. Upon completion of the surgical procedure the transfer process is reversed.
