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 medical equipment, the table adjusts your body position from horizontal to vertical to simulate standing up. It is also used in the common tilt table test performed by many a HCP.
By using a tilt table the patient is able to 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; helping them experience some weight on their legs again. The 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.
