Abstract

Retinopathy of Prematurity, caused by abnormal blood vessel development in the retina of premature infants, is a leading cause of childhood blindness. It is treated using laser photocoagulation. Current methods require the surgeon to assume awkward standing positions, which can result in injury to the surgeon if repeated often. To assist surgeons in providing quality care and prevent occupational injury, a new infant surgical table was designed. The engineered solution is an attachment to a standard surgical table, saving cost and space. This takes advantage of the adjustable height and tilt provided by the standard table, while 360° rotation designed into the attachment allows the surgeon to sit during surgery. The critical cords and tubes are routed through the attachment to avoid pulling and kinking. A four-bar locking mechanism allows easy attachment to standard medical railing. Finally, a straight line mechanism provides positive locking of the rotation, allowing precise positioning of the infant.
