Operating Table Repairs & Maintenance

Below is a brief outlines of the services we offer. To find out more about each service, simply scroll down the page:


Preventative Maintenance

Preventative Maintenance (PM) is a service we provide on a programmed basis, specifically tailored to suit the hospitals’ usage of operating tables. It involves the full assessment of all mechanical, hydraulic and electrical and electronic control systems. During a PM our technicians adjust, secure and lubricate all the main areas of an operating table and test all functions and articulations to specifications. All electrical tables are tested to the specifications of the OEM and AS/NZS 3551:2012 standards. The hospitals which use this service benefit by having reduced downtime due to breakdowns and enhanced performance of their equipment. PM’s can be scheduled at a time which is convenient to the hospital ensuring procedure lists are not impeded. We work outside normal working hours to provide this service and there is no additional charge.

Following preventative maintenance we provide a detailed report in relation to the true state of operating tables.

Corrective Maintenance

Corrective maintenance (CM) involves the repair of operating tables. We can respond to a breakdown call within 48 hours in the Sydney , Brisbane and Gold Coast regions. In most cases, if the repair requires the table to be returned to our workshop, we can provide a courtesy loan table for the duration of the repair.

Specialised Replacement Parts

OTS has a fully equipped engineering facility to produce specialised replacement parts. This significantly reduces downtime obtaining costly replacement parts from overseas. We also have established links with original equipment distributors. In addition, our association with repetition engineers ensures efficient, reliable and price effective maintenance.

Refurbishment or Modification of Outdated Operating Tables

If your tables are outdated and you don’t have the funds to purchase a new table, OTS can refurbish your old table at a fraction of the cost. When completed your table will exceed the OEM specifications and give you many more years of reliable service. All work carried out has a guarantee equivalent to a new table warranty, which is 12 months. While your table is in our workshop, we will provide you with a courtesy loan table, therefore ensuring there is no disruption to your theatre lists.
