CHARLESTON, SC – April 1, 2014 – BERCHTOLD, an international medical equipment manufacturer, has applied new technology to its latest line of surgical tables, introducing the series today at the AORN Surgical Conference and Expo in Chicago, Ill. The OPERON® D Series surgical tables feature state-of-the-art technologies designed to improve patient and staff safety. By providing industry-leading weight capacity, better imaging access, and a full range of motion, OPERON is designed to increase surgical positioning options, while improving patient care and productivity for clinical staff.
Matt Weismiller, president of BERCHTOLD Corporation, noted, “BERCHTOLD is dedicated to the development and manufacture of innovative surgical equipment that provides maximum flexibility and improves staff efficiency. OPERON surgical tables are highly adaptable, allowing the medical team to provide excellent care for a wide range of clinical applications. With the OPERON D Series, we’ve developed a system where the customer can design for their current application and easily reconfigure as their needs change in the future.”
The OPERON D Series features a new maximum weight capacity of 1250 lbs. It’s built with the highest-quality materials available, and the goal was to exemplify genuine BERCHTOLD dependability and durability, which the company, for more than 90 years, has come to be known. Carbon fiber, which has long been a hallmark of their premium tables, is paired with design improvements and technological advances including advanced imaging capabilities, integrated x-ray cassette channel, and an optional stainless steel package.
All sections of the D Series table top are detachable, allowing for greater adaptability to patient body sizes for positioning and anesthesia access. The table can be configured with a full line of compatible accessories to serve every clinical discipline and accommodate surgical suite demands without the need for specialty tables.
