The medical imaging industry has grown substantially in the past few years, as have the number of injuries sustained by professionals who use medical imaging technology on a regular basis. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Nurses lead the categories of injured medical imaging workers, especially in back injuries and musculoskeletal disorders. Oakworks Inc. has worked with top medical professionals to create the CFPMB301, a three motion table with a 750 lb. weight capacity. “Our CFPM series of medical imaging tables has helped medical facilities to comply with required facility safe lift laws, but no one in the medical equipment industry addressed the problem of morbidly obese patients. Our new CFPMB301’s 750 lb. weight capacity combined with a low 26.5” height creates the combination that facilities need. With the changes in safe lift laws, this product is a must,” said Rich Elsen, CSO. These tables are ideal for pain management practices, surgical centers, and other multi-disciplinary medical facilities and are compatible with all mobile c-arm imaging systems.
Texas and Washington were the first states to adopt the new legislation mandating the prevention of injury with new safer equipment for medical facilities. The CFPMB301 features powered height, longitudinal travel and lateral travel. Oakworks proprietary lifting system used on the CFPM line has been modified to increase the lifting strength and has been combined with a thicker, stiffer carbon fiber/foam core composite top to create a very rigid system with minimum flex. “We realized that we not only had to facilitate safe patient transfers, but create a stiffer table that increases patient security and minimizes motion during imaging. This new medical imaging table takes our already rigid design to a whole other level,” Mr. Elsen said in closing.
