Mobility, leveling and damping

FLOOR LOCK, PLUNGER LOCK CASTOR AND VIBRATION DAMPING SYSTEMS FOR ROBOTIC SURGICAL SYSTEMS, OPERATING TABLES AND MOBILE DEVICES

Securing, supporting and leveling

  • Locking and damping of mobile medical devices
  • Versatile use, such as for operating tables or surgical robots
  • Increased patient safety as a result of improved stability under load during movement or during treatment

SAFETY FOR HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT

During use, mobile medical equipment such as operating tables or surgical robots must be secured, supported and leveled, regardless of flooring. At the same time, maximum safety must be ensured – a top priority in ongoing clinic operation. With the increasing emergence of hybrid operating rooms, these topics will be of tremendous importance in the future. The following solutions are available for these applications.

MOBILITY AND FLEXIBILITY – THE TRADITIONAL FLOOR LOCK AND VIBRATION DAMPING SYSTEM

In traditional systems, the castor and support cylinder are implemented separately from each other. These systems are preferred in price-sensitive markets. Integrated into the medical equipment in a compact design, these versatile systems made by HOERBIGER play a crucial role in achieving greater mobility and flexibility.

ADDED SAFETY, FLEXIBILITY AND DESIGN FREEDOM – HOERBIGER/RHOMBUS PLUNGER LOCK CASTOR SYSTEM

To be able to offer an optimal enhancement for the HOERBIGER floor lock and vibration damping systems, a lift castor series was developed jointly with the renowned castor manufacturer RHOMBUS (Colson), which can be equipped with HOERBIGER hydraulic cylinders. The plunger lock castor series is a highly integrated system. Compared to traditional systems, in which the castor and cylinder are separate from each other, this series represents a simplified and more versatile solution to meet the growing needs of the market for even more flexibility, mobility and safety.

  • The new plunger lock castor system offers greater planning flexibility to hospital management staff in their use of mobile, medical devices. Utilization of these devices can be improved, and they are able to meet the higher requirements associated with hybrid operating rooms.
