Surgeons continually experience repetition, poor posture or body mechanics, and extended durations in positions during their surgical procedures; all key factors known to cause musculoskeletal injury and pain. Currently, most surgeons are using medical stools that can compound these negatively impacting factors.
While some surgical stool manufacturers have attempted to add some ergonomic elements to the stools, they still don’t have the support required for optimal, full-body ergonomic surgical positioning. Orbital Chairs can reduce or eliminate the factors that cause strain and injury. Orbital Support Systems has many leading edge solutions to alleviate wide-spread problem.
Orbital Chairs are ergonomic support devices used to ergonomically support the surgeon while performing surgery. They can be used to support the surgeon in either a seated or standing position and gives the surgeon close proximity to the working area while providing full body support; thereby alleviating body fatigue.
Orbital Chair Advantages:
- Revolutionary ergonomic anterior support.
- High quality materials.
- Easy glide casters.
- Heavy base for added stability.
- Low center of gravity.
- Post leans forward for maximum clearance.
- Adjustable leaning position (optional).
- Adjustable chest support
- Adjustable arm rests.
- Seat tilt & slide adjustments
- Arm rests, chest and seat are linked and move together with height adjustment.
- Small space requirement (footprint) – ideal for tighter spaces.
- Hands free (sterile) adjustment for tilt and height.
The Orbital Surgical (S) is a hands free height adjustable anterior support system. The low center of gravity four wheeled base is the most compact and stable base in the surgical arena. It is fully adjustable including seat slide and tilt, chest pad height and independently adjustable armrests.
The Orbital Microsurgical (mS) is a larger version of the S. The base size is larger to accommodate the additional height requirements of a higher, near standing, environment. Hands free height adjustment is achieved by a foot activated lever. The adjustable chest pad and independently adjustable arm rests make it ideal for long procedures and microsurgery.
Orbital xSThe Orbital Extreme (xS) is a custom built full body ergonomic support system. It features our patented weight activated fully articulating ball assembly, which provides hands-free position-locking and unrestricted “orbital” movement in tilting, turning and angular positioning.
Here is what doctors are saying about Orbital Chairs!
It enables us to maintain optimal ergonomic positioning, minimized fatigue and neck or back aches. The quality of the construction is superb. I highly recommend this chair.
