Officials at the Swedish medical device company think the table — with its multiple configurations supporting a variety of procedures — could also reduce the complexity of setup for trauma surgeries and neurosurgery.
“At Getinge, we appreciate the increased need for hospitals to reduce costs by investing in safe, flexible OR tables in conventional or minimally invasive surgery procedures,” Joseph Knight, senior sales director of surgical workflows at Getinge US, said in a news release.
Knight said the Maquet Yuno II also provides enhanced ergonomics and surgeon accessibility.
The table, according to Getinge, could save hospitals systems money because they no longer need to rely on specialty surgical tables. The Maquet Yuno II has interchangeable table tops that support multiple advanced configurations.
The configurations support orthopedic, trauma, spinal and minimally invasive joint procedures — with an elongation adapter for hip scopes increasing the range of possible procedures that could be performed on the surgical table.
Other features include an automatic lock function that prevents patient injury from accidental release of the traction bar.
