Orthopedic Operating Table

Description

This item is one of the largest in our collection.  The table has been identified as an “orthopedic operating table”.  It has a complex system of gears and adjustable platforms as well and traction bars. 

These allow doctors and surgeons to examine and perform operations involving the bones and joints of the patient.  Unlike much of the medical equipment it does not have a makers name to aid in developing more information about it.
