The Hausted Surgi Chair is a multi-position chair and stretcher intended for treatment, transport, or recovery of a patient. With the uniquely designed articulating head section, this unit can be used for specialty procedures that require precision head positioning. Models in this series provide specialized surgical functions of head positioning for ophthalmology, plastic surgery, or ENT procedures. The articulating head piece with dual operating control knobs allows for infinite adjustability and precise, microscopic movement of the head section. Height positioning, as well as backrest and leg section adjustment, is electric powered and is activated with a hand held control. This unit adjusts easily from sitting to supine, and provides a stable work surface during patient treatment. Preinduction, transport, treatment, and recovery can be performed on the same unit to improve case turnaround and streamline patient handling in surgical care.
