The types of medical exam tables available for sale have changed drastically over the years. For example, what does a doctor's examination table and dining room table have in common? In today's world, nothing, but back in medieval Europe, they were one and the same. Modern medicine has come a long way since that point. Today, medical facilities have the option to purchase all sorts of medical exam tables and powered chairs with colors and accessories to match their specific practice.

In this article, we are going to discuss three types of medical examination tables available and the advantages of each style. Further down, we list several models along with their specifications to help aid you in your purchasing decision.

3 Types of Medical Exam Tables

Three general types of examination tables are available

Treatment Tables

Flat Exam Treatment Table

Flat exam treatment tables are a fixed horizontal table with no articulation or height adjustment options. Typically flat and treatment examination tables are used in nurse's offices within schools or similar facilities.
Treatment tables come in a variety of colors and base material combinations. If you are on a budget, a treatment table will be the most cost-effective; however, they can take up more floor space than a manual or powered alternative. Because treatment tables remain fixed in one position, they lack the functionality of higher-end options. If you require greater versatility, a manual or powered counterpart may be a better option. For more information or to request a quote for a flat exam table, call 574-268-9098.

Manual Examination Tables

Manual Exam Table Midmark 104

Manual Examination tables have a mechanical device that allows the doctor to adjust the exam table from an upright seated position to a fully horizontal orientation. Most manual exam tables feature a convenient built-in step stool to aid children and the elderly. Along with step stools, many include pullout drawers for added storage. Thanks to their low cost and multi positioning functionality, approximately 70% of all exam rooms in the United States are currently using manual adjustment tables. By far, the most popular brand is Midmark. Some of the most popular Midmark medical exam tables are the 104, 204, and 404.

Powered Medical Procedure Exam Chairs

Powered Procedure Exam Chair

Power medical exam tables or procedure chairs come equipped with a motor that enables enhanced patient positioning for minor procedures. Positions like Trendelenburg and beach chair positioning are made possible along with the standard seated, reclined, and horizontal exam positioning of ordinary examination tables. The enhanced seating options allow for a wider variety of in-office procedures. Podiatrists, OB-GYN, and Dermatologists can benefit immensely from a motorized table. Powered exam tables offer convenience for the physician and enhance patient comfort. Motorizes medical chairs utilize either a foot pedal or hand control to manipulate the unit's functions with ease. If you are seeking a full-function procedure chair, call 574-268-9098. One of our representatives will be able to help you.
