Choosing the Right Ophthalmic Stool

Posted by Joe on 8/12/2013 to Ophthalmic Equipment
When searching for a new Ophthalmic stool for your practice you may want to consider the options. There are hydraulic lift stools, pneumatic lift stools, and even surgical high quality hydraulic stools with places to rest your arms during surgery. Consider your own needs and height requirements when looking for the right stool for your own practice.

These Ophthalmic stools come in a variety of colors and heights. The come without backs, and with varying materials for the seat including leather in some cases. It is up to you to decide which option is most appropriate. The average heights which these stools can adjust to are anywhere from 17" to around 35" off the ground in the highest elevation. The heights of your surgical tables will determine the heights which you need the stools to elevate to. Deciding whether or not you need armrests on one or more of these stools is also something you must consider.

With the hydraulic stools, a simple pedal can raise and lower the seat. With the pneumatic version, you must ease your weight off of the stool and allow the pneumatic mechanism to raise the seat before you sit back on it. There are options for the type of back you want, as well as options for the types of arms you may need. Each surgeon has their own set of parameters for the proper stool, and you must buy according to your own specific needs. Again, finding the right stool is simply a matter of knowing your own surgical requirements.
