|The Galaxy McManis Hylo is a flexion distraction table designed with both doctor and patient in mind. Available in 22″ to 28″ heights, it features fully adjustable head, chest, lumbar and ankle sections. Simple control levers provide precision control of the pelvic flexion with lateral bending and traction.
The standard chest lumbar section, with spring breakaway, is designed to comfortably accommodate pregnant or large abdominal patients. A lumbar extension combined with extendable and retractable pelvic and ankle sections makes it possible to accommodate patients from 5′ to 6′ 11″.
Manual and automatic cocking drops are optional on all sections including the optional rotating chest and forward motion/straight drop headpiece. Chest and lumbar drops can be individually operated while in a rotated position with manual and/or automatic cocking. A specially designed spring release is available with the drop chest and lumbar. The automatic cocking drops are built into the table with controls on each side and can be set manually in the event of electrical failure. No noisy compressor is required.
A flexion T-Bar that retracts downward and sideways is also an optional feature.
Fatigue is not a factor when using a Lloyd McManis Hylo. Hydraulic control provides more constant resistance through the flexion range, regardless of the patient’s size or weight. The ease of varying resistance makes Lloyd McManis Tables the most popular in the industry.
Hardening and crack resistant Naugahyde upholstery is available in a wide range of colors.
The McManis Hylo is smoothly tilted or lowered hydraulically at infinitely adjustable speeds from horizonal to 70°, and controlled by foot pedals from either side of the table. The footplate falls away flat on the floor when the table is lowered to a horizontal position. A safety switch prevents the table from accidentally lowering from the hylo position.
