MAGNUS 1180 OPERATING TABLE COLUMNS

Reason

Under certain conditions, they have found that a problem may cause the operating table not to function as intended. The tables may develop a hydraulic leakage at the inclination function. This leakage leads to an unintended Trendelenburg or anti-Trendelenburg movement of the table top depending on patient positioning. This malfunction only exhibits when tilt movement is used. They are aware of instances where this problem led to patients having to be transferred to another OR table which prolonged the procedure.
