What’s new in exam table design?

The most important part of your practice may be the medical care you provide for each patient who comes through your doors, but you wouldn’t go very far without a good exam table. In fact, this piece of equipment likely gets the most use of all, whether you are treating an injury or just doing a routine check-up. From young to old, short to tall, all of your patients will eventually take a seat on your exam table.

Because it plays such an important role in your patient care, it is vital that you stay up to date with the latest designs and offerings when it comes to exam tables. Medical Device Depot has a wide selection of medical exam tables to fit your needs. Whether you are looking for handicap-accessible tables, pediatric tables, chiropractic tables, imaging tables or gynecological tables, you are sure to find one of your favorite brands right here at a great price.

Power exam tables are a hot style right now, and many come with extra storage. Tables like the Brewer Access High-Low Exam Table allow doctors to quickly adjust the table with the press of a button so the patient can remain comfortable. The table even has a pelvic tilt feature so you don’t need to worry about continuously asking patients to readjust. Another main perk of this specific design is that it has plenty of storage to keep your most used equipment nearby. You will be able to attend to the patient more carefully when you don’t have to keep rolling over to the cabinets across the room to grab the tools you need for the exam. You and your patients will be much more comfortable with a state-of-the-art exam table.

What’s new for exam tables?

Exam tables are a staple of every medical office. In order to properly examine patients, medical professionals must be able to offer the patient a comfortable place to both sit and recline. A patient who is well supported will feel more comfortable throughout the visit and this will allow doctors, nurses and assistants to perform to the best of their abilities.

As with most medical devices, constant updates mean that it’s important to do plenty of research research to find the best version of a given product. Exam tables may not seem like they need constant updating, but from time to time, even these staples feature new innovations that medical professionals will want to have in their offices.

  • Accessible transfer height – Making the table accessible to patients in wheelchairs is important, but the table will have to be adjustable back up to regular height for the exam.
  • Bacteria-resistant surface – In medical offices every extra bit of sterilization helps, and some chairs and tables offer bacteria-fighting paint or a microbial guard.
  • Chair to table recline – This keeps the patient comfortable.
  • Extra storage space – There is never enough room for extra equipment, especially items that doctors typically need on hand during an exam, such as gowns and gloves. Having pass-through drawers allows access from either side of the table.

Picking the Best Medical Exam Table

Patient comfort is a priority for your medical practice. From the moment they walk in the door they should feel at ease, but it is especially important when they are in the exam room. Whether they are in for a routine visit or something more pressing, the environment should make them feel welcome and safe.

This feeling should continue even as your patient sits down on the exam table. Feeling uncomfortable during an exam can make the process feel like it lasts a lifetime, so take every measure you can to ensure your patient is at ease. Starting with a comfortable exam table will make the visit easier.

Decide what your practice needs from a table: drawers, stirrups, reclining back, leg extension and/or step ladder. Once you have all the necessities, make sure the seat padding is comfortable and cushy for your patients.

If you are looking to expand your practice by building additional exam rooms or if you simply need to update your existing exam rooms, you will need to invest in new exam tables. Take a look at Medical Device Depot’s large selection of high-quality medical exam tables. An experienced representative will be able to discuss each product with you to help you find the table that will best fit your practice and best suit your patients.
