Merivaara Corp. (Lahti, Finland), a Finnish provider of hospital furniture and operating room (OR) systems, showcased the latest innovations of its OR equipment at Arab Health 2018 held in Dubai, UAE, from January 29 to February 1, 2018.

Merivaara focuses on offering integrated solutions and furnishing for ORs, day surgery and health clinics, and recovery. Among the latest innovations of its OR equipment showcased at Arab Health 2018 was the company’s new Practico family of surgical tables for elective procedures. Designed to improve ergonomics with the industry’s widest range of posture possibilities, the Practico family of operating tables is modular for a wide variety of surgical procedures. For instance, the Practico Max Hi goes up to 1 143 mm (45 inches), while the Practico Max Lo goes down to 540 mm (21.3 inches), making it one of the lowest mobile tables in the market.

The table is also robust and can handle 280 kg (617 pounds) and follows the time-honored Nordic design principle of simplicity and utility. The base is tapered so that fluids flow off, and even screws are hidden so there are no dirt traps, thus allowing for fast and easy cleaning between procedures. The Practico mobile operating table is also smart as a safety sensor in the base cover automatically stops the movement of the table when the leg section touches the base. It also has a simple and easy-to-use hand control with an intuitive user interface and several memory positions, saving the staff from unnecessary hassle. Its user interface is similar to that of other Merivaara products and can be connected to the Merivaara OpenOR integrated OR management system, a part of the Merivaara Fluent concept, which enhances the usability of ORs.
