Funzionalità e grande responsabilità

Nella sala operatoria e nella postazione di assistenza sono necessarie la massima funzionalità e un'assoluta precisione. Le molle a gas ed ammortizzatori idraulici STABILUS facilitano la vita dei pazienti e del personale infermieristico giorno e notte. Le molle a gas STABILUS servono per il sollevamento, l'abbassamento, il posizionamento e la regolazione in tutte le applicazioni in cui è richiesta una certa affidabilità, dalla regolazione in altezza rapida e controllata alla regolazione precisa e facile o la compensazione del peso. Essi offrono un elevato livello di comfort e mobilità, facilitano il lavoro all'operatore e riducono notevolmente al minimo le fonti di pericolo. Senza manutenzione e silenziosi, da molti decenni sono ormai un elemento strutturale indispensabile nella tecnologia medica.

Operating Tables, Gurneys and Stretchers
Surgery is precision work that requires a high level of sensitivity.

That is why it is critical that the operating table can be adjusted quickly and easily, so that the patient will always be in perfect reach of the surgeon.

 

In gurneys, it is important that they can be individually adapted to the physical state of the sick or injured person to eliminate additional pain and pressure. In transport stretchers, variable height adjustment is required for carefully moving the patient, for example, from a higher surgery stretcher to a lower hospital bed.

Function

In addition to convenient height adjustment, Stabilus gas springs allow variable, easy adjustment of the head, back, and foot sections of operating tables and transport stretchers. Load differences, as they might occur due to differences in human body weight, can be absorbed effortlessly and safely with our gas springs.

Your Advantage

  • Fast and individual height adjustment
  • Trendelenburg / reverse Trendelenburg adjustments
  • Built-in weight compensation
  • No EMFs, no fire hazard
  • Mechanical actuation system, for no leaks

Physicians' Chairs and Stools
Physicians demand convenience while working.

Stabilus gas springs facilitate ergonomic sitting by quickly bringing chairs and stools to the correct, individual height – either manually or, even more comfortably, by pedal actuation. The hands will remain free and more importantly, stay sterile.

 

Function

With our locking, self-supporting gas pressure springs, the physician’s stool can be variably adjusted up or down within seconds. Once it is in the desired position, it will bounce pleasantly, saving the spine from hard impact. Of course, height adjustment can be operated both manually and by foot release.

Massage and Treatment Tables
Variable height adjustability of the treatment table is one of the most important prerequisites for ergonomic and relaxed working of medical staff.

Precisely adjustable back, seat, head, and foot sections can optimally position the patient, contributing to treatment success.

 

Function

Gas pressure springs from Stabilus will safely and effortlessly bring the patient bed into the treatment position. The locking forces of our gas springs are sufficiently high; no additional locking mechanisms are necessary. In addition, the gas springs can be equipped with overload protection (override function). If the bed is stressed beyond a preset load, the overload valve will open and the corresponding panel will gently yield.

Your Advantage

  • Fast and individual height adjustment
  • Variable and effortless adjustment of back, seat, head, and leg panels
  • No EMFs, no fire hazard
  • Mechanical actuation system, for no leaks

Our Solutions at a Glance

Trash Cans and Waste Bins
Pedal-operated metal trash cans are used wherever absolute hygiene is vital – as in the medical sector.

Unfortunately, closing them is associated with a loud noise, because the lid will drop freely when the pedal is released.

 

Function

Gas springs and small dampers from Stabilus will eliminate these uncontrolled falls and ensure soft and gentle closing. During opening, the lid will glide open smoothly without hitting furniture or walls.

Your Advantage

  • Safe and silent closing of lids and flaps

Our Solutions at a Glance

  • LIFT-O-MAT – gas spring for easy, controlled opening
  • STAB-O-SHOC – damper for dampened, silent closing
Wheelchairs
Older or weaker patients often have difficulties rising from a wheelchair by themselves. Some injuries require elevating the legs, which must also be ensured in the wheelchair. An adjustable backrest further promotes comfortable sitting.

 

Function

In wheelchairs, Stabilus gas springs provide easy height and tilt adjustment of backrest and seat. Less strength will be required for rising, and the patient will be able to get from the bed into the wheelchair more easily. In the mobile foot sections, our gas pressure springs allow elevation of one or both legs. Our dampers will gently dampen the wheels while the chair is in motion.

Your Advantage

  • Height and tilt adjustment of backrest and foot sections
