Tilt table - common uses

An electric tilt table’s primary use is to slowly bring a patient into a progressively upright standing position. A vital piece of physio equipment, the tilting table adjusts the body position from horizontal to vertical to simulate standing up.  It is also used in the common tilt table test performed by many HCP's.

By using a tilt table, a physiotherapist is able to help the patient get back the sensation of applying weight gently onto their legs, slowly re-introducing the standing position whilst giving them full support, particularly around the knee area.

Tilt tables are ideal for someone who hasn’t been on their feet for a long period of time, such as bedridden or wheelchair bound patients; the tilt helps them experience some weight on their legs again. 

Tilt tables are also suitable for people who struggle to get up on their own, or would need too many HCP’s to help them rise to their feet.   Also used on people who are unable to support their own weight due to neurological impairment or a significant injury and ideally suited in physiotherapy and rehab;  it allows a patient to be assessed and evaluated, and next steps can then be put in place.   

Renting a tilt table

We are aware that physio tilt tables are regularly used in the short term for patients with specific needs, so we offer a few different tilt tables

The Deluxe tilt table is suitable for patients up to a weight of 225kg and it has an electric height and tilting operation with hand switch control.

Or you could try our more basic tilt table - with three separate harnesses, patient handles and braking castors, this electric tilt table has both height and tilt control.

Here at Caremed we provide tilt tables to rent from as little as £20 a day.  The price goes down the more days it is out on rent.  Get in touch here for a price.

We can also deliver the tilt table in most circumstances, within 24 hours.
