December 7, 2018 | Evaluations & Guidance


  • The Getinge Meera Mobile Operating Table is intended for general surgery. Key manufacturer-reported specifications are listed in the table below.
  • The Meera operating table may be used for intraoperative imaging. It includes an imaging window with consistent radiolucency up to 162.6 cm (64 in), an optional x-ray top for lateral insertion of x-ray cassettes, and optional carbon-fiber modules.
  • Major device components and software features include the following:
    • Tabletop: A 203.2 × 53.3 cm (80 × 21 in) multi-section, configurable tabletop designed to support the patient in specialized positions as determined by the surgical procedure and physician preference. The tabletop includes individual sections to support the head, back, center, and legs of the patient.
    • Column: A CrNi (chromium nickel) stainless steel vertical shaft connecting the tabletop to the base. The column casing has an override control panel, which can be used if the hand control is not functioning. The override control panel has the same buttons as the corded hand control, minus the motor drive and level position buttons. The column casing has a protective cover for the sockets of the corded hand control and foot switch. The column houses the rechargeable batteries that allow the operating table to function without a power supply.
    • Base: A cast steel support on which the column is mounted. Four casters under the base to facilitate table transport and positioning within the OR. The casters retract when the table is set in the locked position and extend when the table is in the unlocked position.
    • Pads: Double-layer soft foam core (SFC) padding with a polyurethane cover placed over each section of the tabletop for patient comfort and to prevent injury.
    • Rails: Attached to the tabletop to secure the patient and for accessory attachment.
    • Hand control: A handheld control with push buttons and an LCD display; it is used to activate different table positions and settings, and to show maintenance information. The hand control is powered via a corded connection to the column. A clip on the back of the control allows it to be rested on the side rails when not in use. Hand control features and buttons include the following:
