Should I get a couch with Electric or Hydraulic Control?
On many of the Seers Therapy Couches, there is a choice of hydraulic (non-electric) or electric height control operation.
Both options are extremely easy to operate and dependable so really it's down to personal preference. If access to an electrical outlet is restricted in your clinic then a hydraulic is the best for you.
Hydraulic Height Operation
A hydraulic therapy couch features operating levers on both sides of the couch that can easily adjust the height. To raise the couch, the lever, from either side, must be continually depressed and released repeatedly until the couch treatment surface is at the required height. At the end of the treatment, to lower the couch the lever needs to be raised upwards and held in position by the operator’s foot which will allow the couch to descend in a controlled manner until the minimum height is achieved. The descent can be activated by raising the lever on either side of the couch.
