You may have come across regular operating tables, but you might not be familiar with specialized orthopedic ones.
A typical orthopedic operating table is essentially a regular bed that's connected to a traction frame. However, there are special orthopedic beds made of carbon fiber and also connected to a carbon fiber traction frame.
The most advanced type of orthopedic surgical bed is an end-column one with a carbon fiber bed board and traction frame. While these high-end products are easier to use and more efficient for surgery, they do come at a higher cost.
Unlike stainless steel materials which block X-rays, carbon fibers allow them to pass through completely unobstructed. This makes them the preferred choice for surgeons who require C-arm X-ray irradiation during orthopedic procedures.
To get a better idea of what these beds look like, take a look at some pictures of Howell Medical's line of carbon fiber orthopedic surgical beds.
