  • Retractable wheels
    • Couch lifts on wheels for movement
    • On-the-floor stability in use
       
  • Braked Castors
    • More suitable for frequent movement or movement with a patient
    • Each casstor is individually braked
       
  • Most ABCO swing arm couches and tables are supplied with an actuator with 6 000n force. In a no-load situation, this actuator will take approximately 31 seconds to raise the couch through its full height range. At a load of 80kg for example, this will slow to 36 seconds [approx 16% longer]. Maximum lifting capacity is rated at 200kg.
  • The faster / stronger actuator is rated at 10 000n force. In a no-load situation, this actuator will take approximately 17seconds to raise the couch through the full height range. With an 80kg load this will slow to 18seconds [approx 6% longer]. Maximum lifting capacity is rated at 275kg.
Increases both lifting capacity and speed of height adjustment
A foot control is preferable:
  • If you need to adjust the height or upholstery configuration of your table or chair during a procedure without using your hands.

Choose a hand control: 
  • If you don't need to make these adjustments during a procedure or can do so by hand.
  • Where you need to move your table or chair regularly
  • If the location is not suitable for a foot control [eg a wet area]

Select a double hand or foot control to control your table from either side.

All our Breathe Holes come with an upholstered plug insert
Suitable for most ABCO Health Care products subject to confirmation.
  • The batteries are mounted in a pack attached to the base framework and integrate with a special control box. This control box is not interchangeable with the standard control box which must be replaced for a field upgrade.
  • 1.2ah @24vDC.
  • Based on a typical load of 30% maximum actuator rating this permits approximately 35 up/down cycles when fully charged.
  • The actuator may be used with either mains or battery power.
  • Charge fully overnight before use, using mains cable to actuator system.
  • Frequent charging will extend the battery life which, subject to the usage pattern, will be up to 4 - 5 years. Infrequent charging may reduce this by as much as 60%.

More information

Bobath Couch, Neurological Table, Bobath Neurological Table, Wide Plinth, Double Plinth are all names for the wide treatment tables commonly used by physiotherapists for neurological rehabilitation. For the purpose of this paper, they will be referred to as Bobath Tables.

Originally specified by Dr Karel & Mrs Berta Bobath in the 1940s, the Bobath technique uses a range of movements to enhance recovery of people with neurological problems. Given the range and type of movements, a wider table / ‘work surface’ provided greater support to both patient and physiotherapist during treatment. Bobath Tables widths are typically in the 110 – 120cm range but can be as wide as 180cm or more and up to 200cm or more in length. These tables are cumbersome and heavy to deliver and position and ideally need a door wide enoughto allow for the table to be wheeled through. Specialist delivery teams are recommended for the wider tables.

Initially, Bobath Tables were simply a fixed height table with a padded top. As manufacturers developed the mechanism to allow for height adjustments, Bobath Tables are now almost all designed to allow for height adjustment over a range. Thisallows for easy patient access to the table either unaided or aided and adjustment to a suitable working height for the physiotherapist. Typically, a minimum height is in the order of 50cm – close to a wheel chair seat height. A maximum heigh will be in the order of 90cm – a convenient height for a slide transfer from a bed while minimizing the need for the people making the transfer to bend their backs. A further advantage of adjustable height Bobath Tables is that they can be set to a height suitable for a specific exercise.

The mechanism to adjust height on a Bobath Table was initially a hydraulic jack. This needed to be lifted by pumping on a foot lever to adjust the height – hard to dowhile also supervising the patient. Hydraulic jacks have been almost entirely superseded in the last 20 – 25 years with electric linear actuators, generally controlled with a foot operated switch. Even more recently, electric columns have provided further enhancements to the height adjustment process.

Both hydraulic jacks and electric linear actuators adjust the height of the Bobath Table by pushing a lifting arm in a circular motion. The change in height is accompanied by a lateral movement along the direction of the push which can be up to 20cm or more depending on the geometry and height. This can cause problems in constricted spaces. Electric columns provide a direct lift with no lateral movement.

When a patient sits on the side of a Bobath Table, there will be a twisting force delivered through the structure which is aggravated if the height is adjusted at the same time. When choosing a Bobath Table, check the lifting mechanism. Is it as wide as practicable, or is it simply a mechanism suitable for a narrower table with and extended frame? The wider the lifting mechanism, the longer your Bobath Table will last. This is especially relevant with the increasing average weight of patients. Breathe holes make the treatment process more comfortable for patients. Multiple breathe holes are particularly beneficial when patients are exercising by rolling on the table.A backrest helps with patient positioning. These are heavy to adjust and provision ofan electric actuator to control the adjustment makes it easier and safer for the physiotherapist.
