The Universal Frame can easily be mounted to the leg plate interface, and quickly configured for surgery. By simply mounting the side rail clamp on the carbon fiber bars, OR staff can attach needed accessories.


Additional accessories

The huge range of accessories makes the Universal Frame so flexible. A trolley stores all the basic accessories, and is used to assist with the mounting.

Excellent stability

The frame is built for stability, with carbon fiber bars and a slender support foot. The Universal Frame table tops support a proportional patient weight of 250 kg (551 lbs). When the positioning elements are mounted, a proportional weight of a 180 kg (396 lbs) patient may be carried.


Ergonomic working conditions

The height adjustment function makes it possible to work either standing or seated, according to the preference of OR staff. Improved access to the surgical site means less strain on the surgeon.

Adjustable positioning elements for precise support in prone position

Four compact, ergonomically designed positioning elements can be adjusted individually in three planes: laterally, vertically and horizontally. This ensures precisely tailored body positions. A minimized supporting surface directly beneath the spine creates a large, undisturbed corridor for imaging.

Different table tops

Two sizes of table tops expand the positioning possibilities of Getinge Universal Frame. While the short table top provides good access to the head area, the long table top gives an expansive imaging window for spinal and abdominal procedures. Additionally, the long table top is a very good option for pediatric surgery.
