How to Use the Tilt Tables?
Taikhum Sadiq

With the ever-increasing problems of arthritis and many other disorders and diseases that render a person unable to stand or move around, the need for devices that can supplement this movement has increased. Wheelchairs or scooters have done their part by covering the mobility part, helping millions around the world with disabilities to move, travel through almost all terrains whether at home or outdoors.

But there are some disabilities that make it difficult for the person to even stand up. How does one treat a person while facing such a big difficulty? The answer lies in the advent of the simple but highly effective device called a tilt table. Using basic mechanical principles, technology, in the form of tilt tables, helped us overcome this major hurdle in treatment and rehabilitation.

When does one need a Tilt Table Therapy?

Tilt tables are a basic need for bedridden patients who cannot stand upright on their own and human support might cause problems as well. This is why tilt tables are used, as they eliminate all possibilities of falling down or tripping and help the patient stand upright.

A number of diseases and disorders can result in a patient being bedridden. These include both physiological and neurological problems.

There are two major types of tilt tables Health Products For You offers: 

1. Manual Tilt Tables

Based on the simple idea of pulleys, manual tilt tables were the first to have been made. They are larger as compared to their counterparts but are cheaper as well. Earlier it was a basic mechanical system, but nowadays, safety concerns have made the manufacturers add a lot of different parts and accessories that guarantee your safety on the table. A lever system initiates the movement of the patient and gradually brings the patient to an upright position.
