Surgical Tables

The Skytron Elite 6500 is one of our most requested and popular surgical tables. The Skytron 6500 is an electro-hydraulically operated, general-purpose table. This table has a maximum patient capacity of 500 pounds. A lot of other surgical tables claim they can hold that much weight, but the Skytron Elite 6500 can hold a 500-pound patient while still being able to fully articulate. It has a 180-degree tabletop rotation, that allows for unobstructed C-arm and microscope coverage. This helps eliminate conflicts between the surgeon and the anesthesiologist during head-end procedures. This also helps provide ample legroom for surgeons who prefer to sit during procedures. With a maximum height range of 47 inches, the 6500 allows for all surgeons to be comfortable whether they like to sit or stand while they operate. After all, the surgeon needs to be comfortable.
