New tabletop Carbon FloatLine

New tabletop Carbon FloatLine

At MEDICA 2012 TRUMPF will be showcasing its latest solutions for optimizing patient care procedures in and around operating rooms and intensive care units. TRUMPF’s innovations make the work of surgeons and medical care staff easier, more ergonomic and more efficient.

Novelty: floating OR tabletop
Making its debut at the trade fair in Dusseldorf is a brand new OR tabletop that will significantly improve patient handling during surgery: Carbon FloatLine. Made of carbon fiber, this innovative tabletop makes it much easier and safer to position patients thanks to its high degree of adjustability, responsiveness and ease of use. Its range of movement allows for a longitudinal shift of up to 800 millimeters and transverse displacement of up to 125 millimeters each to the left and to the right side. And these at adjustment speeds of up to 185 millimeters per second. By using an ergonomic control panel Carbon FloatLine can be moved easily and intuitively in whatever direction is required, with a smooth, all-in-one action for any combination of lengthways or sideways movement. The novelty of the control panel lies in its use of pressure sensors to control speed: the OR tabletop moves more quickly or slowly depending on the amount of pressure applied to the handle. This quick and flexible maneuverability gives the user the impression that the OR tabletop is free-floating. Carbon FloatLine is prepared well for hybrid applications, it is completely radiolucent and offers via the OR table TruSystem 7500 an open interface for integration into imaging systems.

Next generation: new TruLight 5000
TRUMPF will also show the newly optimized second generation of the TruLight 5000 multi-functional surgical light at MEDICA 2012. Among its new performance-enhancing features is the ability to adjust both the color temperature and the pattern size. Thanks to the newest cool white and warm white LEDs, the new TruLight 5000 has variable color temperature settings of between 3,500 and 5,000 Kelvin – which means contrast enhancement can be individually controlled. The large illuminated area with its diameter of 23 cm can be reduced down to 16 cm; this is particularly advantageous for the minimally invasive surgical procedures that are being carried out ever more frequently. This means the TruLight 5000 illuminates just the area being worked on, which cuts down on reflections from the surroundings.

Visitors to the MEDICA trade fair can head to the TRUMPF booth A42 in Hall 13 to experience for themselves the ways in which these and further product innovations are preparing present-day OR workspaces for the future. For those looking to be convinced of the functionalities and new possibilities offered by the latest TRUMPF products, there will be opportunities to see live demonstrations in TRUMPF’s trade fair OR. To register for these OR presentations, go to:
