OR tables with new features

Schmitz u. Söhne add value to the entry-level models of the DIAMOND series

Schmitz u. Söhne have further improved the technical properties of their mobile operating table models DIAMOND 40 K and 40 LK. With immediate effect, the Wickede (Ruhr)-based manufacturers of medical equipment are equipping the two entry-level models of their DIAMOND series with a telescopic height adjustment column with an adjustment range which is enlarged by 140 mm. While the DIAMOND 40 K model now offers a height adjustment range of 615 to 1,115 mm, the 40 LK model can now flexibly be adjusted to a height of between 665 and 1,165 mm. This new technical advance offers an enhanced comfort for the surgeon, who now benefits in particular from more leg space in both standing and sitting surgery.

New software version for all DIAMOND tables

Schmitz is also introducing a new software version for all DIAMOND tables with various new functions and benefits for users. All tables will now have options for usage of the “Soft Start” and “Motion Activation” function, an individual “Activation Time” for the hand control unit can be set as well as a specific height for the “0-Position”. DIAMOND 50 and 60 models will also have the possibility to save up to 8 different table positions for a fast and time-saving recall of often used positions.

Optional override control unit for DIAMOND 40 tables

The DIAMOND 40 K and 40 LK table models will moreover be equipped with a detachable manual control unit, which is attached to the height adjustment column and is available as an optional extra. This feature adds a 2nd level to the security concept and guarantees an uninterrupted operation: In case the main control element should fail, the medical staff can simply detach the override manual control unit and continue to operate the table electronically. The table can, of course, still be manually adjusted via the hydraulic system.

“These new features bring the two entry-level models of the DIAMOND table series closer to the premium models 50 BK and 60 BLK on a technical level", points out Mr Friedrich Schmitz, managing partner of the family-run SME.
