“In our search for economical, ergonomic and user-friendly medical exam tables, we joined with Oakworks Medical to design a line of ultrasound exam tables with numerous features that address the needs of sonographers in all specialties,” Carolyn Coffin of Sound Ergonomics stated. Oakworks Medical ultrasound tables are configurable to meet the needs of the sonographer and have many unique features designed to support ergonomically correct work positions. At the SVU meeting, June 7-9 in Washington, DC, Oakworks’ Vascular tables will be displayed in booth 746.
