RAIL CLAMPS
A DIY Hand Table

Rather than transfer your hand patients from your traditional OR bed to a hand table and back again, convert your stretcher table to a hand table. You can do so by attaching spring-loaded rail clamps to the side rail of the bed. As you can see in the photos, the spring-loaded clamps firmly lock onto the rail with a twist of the handle so you can mount the hand attachment accessory.
