The TRUMPF JUPITER SYSTEM combines the principles of a universal surgical table with an integrated patient transport solution. The patient and the JUPITER tabletop are moved to the OR together via the JUPITER SYSTEM trolley. The shuttle is aligned over the JUPITER SYSTEM computer-controlled fixed column. The tabletop is safely secured to the column by remote control. Contact points provide control over all table functions via remote, column touch pad, or computer touch screen. During surgery the JUPITER SYSTEM provides a wide range of patient positioning options for all disciplines. At the conclusion of the procedure, the patient and tabletop are rolled out of the OR, again via the shuttle. Room changeover proceeds immediately with overall changeover time reduced. The next patient can be brought into the OR on another JUPITER tabletop, again via shuttle.
