Abstract

965,492. Surgical tables. ASSOCIATED ELECTRICAL INDUSTRIES Ltd. May 10, 1963 [May 18, 1962], No. 19303/62. Heading A4H. [Also in Division H5] A tiltable table structure, in which the table is pivoted about a transverse tilting axis on a support lever, which is itself pivoted about another axis, is provided with a linearly actuable operating member coupled to the table at a point removed from its tilting axis and actuable to tilt the table forward about its axis on the lever so that one end swings down, and means for pivoting the lever about its axis so as to raise the tilting axis. As shown, the table 1 is pivoted clockwise, from a horizontal position, about a tilting axis a, by extending a ram 13 of a hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder 14. This movement causes a link 17 to pivot a lever 15 clockwise about a pivot e on a lever 12, until a roller 16 contacts a surface 18. As the roller 16 travels to the left along the surface 18 the lever 12 rotates anti-clockwise about a fixed pivot b thus raising the tilting axis a and enabling the table 1 to reach a vertical position (Fig. 4). To pivot the table 1 anti-clockwise from the horizontal position (Fig. 2), the ram 13 is retracted to pull the lever 12 upwards about axis b, tilting of the table about its axis a being prevented by a stop 23. The table can be used as an X-ray table with a cantilevered structure 4, which has telescopic legs 6 and carries a viewing screen 5, a carriage (not shown) by which an X-ray film cassette can be moved into position beneath the screen, and an undertable X-ray tube 11 in vertical alignment beneath the screen The tube 11 and screen structure 4 can be adjusted in position transversely and longitudinally of the table. Alternatively an overhead gantry may suspend an X-ray tube above the table and a film cassette beneath the table.
