The best advice I can give if you're looking for the latest in tables, lifts and positioning devices is to see and experience the equipment in person. It's important to test how well your surgical team members can manipulate the moving parts of each device, just as they would in daily use. You'll also want to know how they enhance the patient's experience at your facility. Have team members test out the equipment from both perspectives. This process not only ensures patient satisfaction, but it also gives staff input in the decision-making process and increases the likelihood that they'll use the products you choose to purchase.
