Naval vessels, large yachts and cruise liners can all encounter the need for emergency surgery. The severity of an injury or acute ailment does not provide for waiting, and thus the team has to be independent of wave conditions.

The STABLE Operating Theatre can save lives, in addition to increasing the efficiency and reducing risks when used aboard vessels such as hospital ships.

STABLE Operating Theater lets the surgical team be 100% focused at the task at hand, hence any movements of the surroundings may have fatal consequences.

Or in simple terms; STABLE Operating Theatre provides the patient, the medical personnel and equipment the sensation of being in a land-based operating theatre despite the ship movements.

STABLE Operating Theatre
The STABLE Operating Theater is customized to the need of each application when it comes to size, height and maximum roll and pitch angles. In principle two different solutions are available one based on the geometry of the STABLE Deck and one based on a specialized design for this application using vertical actuators (ref photo).

The last one is designed for large roll and pitch angles and a minimum height of the platform.

The STABLE Operating Theatre can save lives, in addition to increasing the efficiency and reducing risks when used aboard vessels such as naval hospital ships.

By removing the pitch and roll movements STABLE Operating Theater lets the surgical team be 100% focused on the task at hand. Or in simple terms; providing the patient, the medical personnel and equipment the sensation of being in a land-based operating theatre despite the ship movements. No waves will “rock” the team and therefor the risk of fatal consequences will be reduced substantially.

Technical Specifications (PDF)

For the STABLE Deck version, please refer to the STABLE Deck section.

The specialized designed platform is based on using two vertical actuators moving the platform in the roll and pitch axes. This design enables roll and pitch angels up to +-15 degrees.

The STABLE Operating Theater is customized to the need of each application when it comes to size, height and maximum roll and pitch angles.

Material of frame is either aluminum or stainless steel.

The size of the platform is 6,5 m x 2,5 m and approx. 0,5 m high. Maximum tilt angles for pitch +- 6 dgrs and roll +- 15 dgrs.

PHYSICAL PARAMETRS

Maximum tilt angles: 15 degrees pitch and roll.
Frame size: up to 6.5 m x 6.5 m.
Frame height: minimum 50 cm.
Actuator height: 2.75 m.
Change of frame size and tilt angles may reduce the necessary height of both platform and actuators.

Horizontal actuators under frame is possible if tilt angles are reduced to approx. +-8 degrees.
