Rastatt, Germany - July 2011 - Maquet, the medical engineering and workflow specialist, presents its latest mobile operating table: The Yuno OTN. It was specifically developed to enable all surgical procedures to the upper and lower parts of the skeleton to be carried out on just a single operating table and with the very highest degree of precision.
Rastatt, Germany - November 2010 - The first thing a layperson associates with the term “hybrid” is the car. The hybrid car has an internal combustion engine as well as an electric motor with an energy storage device. In numerous other technologies "from clock to hard drive", this term also describes the pooling of several positive features for the benefit of the user. In the case of the hybrid operating theater, patients are the ones who benefit most, followed by physicians and hospitals.
Rastatt, Germany - October 2010 - “You must not fool yourself – this is a big project in need of a lot of coordination”, describes Andreas Lauinger, technical director and authorized signatory for the Heart Surgery Clinic in Karlsruhe, his experience with the construction of the local hybrid OR. The implementation in Karlsruhe only took 15 months which shows that the project coordination was well thought through. The hybrid OR - in this case a synthesis of operating theater for heart surgery and fully equipped cardiac catheter laboratory – is a highly complex structure, considering the planning and technical process.
Rastatt, Germany - October 2010 - It is the heart itself which sets the rhythm for Maquet’s presentation in Hall 12, Stand 50/51: Its “da-dam” on a darkened stage leads us at a stroke right into the topic. This sound is joined by other heart rhythms until the visitor is acoustically enveloped by the event. This impression of being “right at the heart of things rather than just a spectator” is achieved with the second main theme, lung therapies, thanks to the use of breathing sounds.
MAGNUS: Ergonomics And Safety Implemented Throughout The World
Rastatt, Germany - September 2010 - Suitable working conditions for the surgical team are a fundamental prerequisite for ensuring that operations are performed ergonomically and safely. This applies to the entire surgical area but in particular to the operating table. A study¹ revealed that 45% of the surgeons interviewed had to use a step during surgery to compensate for the height of the operating table.
Rastatt, Germany - August 2010 - With the new Trimano 3D support arm, Maquet, the workflow specialists, are able to further expand their already extensive product portfolio in the field of assist systems and OR accessories. The assist system is deployed as a “third hand” for the surgeon, in orthopaedics and traumatology. It has been specially developed for operations to the shoulder and upper arm area.

Rastatt, Germany - July 2009 - Optimised usage of patient-related image and data sources in the OR, simple equipment operation, full integration in the clinic's IT workflow and compatibility with existing equipment and systems are the core demands when it comes to digital ORintegration.

IDEAL IN EVERY POSITION: THE MAGNUS OPERATING TABLE SYSTEM
Rastatt, Germany - April 2009 - 160 kilograms is a weight which not just jeopardizes the personal operating risk of the patient, but also the efficacy of surgical procedures on traditional operating tables.
