Top 6 Best Selling Physiotherapy Tables in 2016

 Best Physiotherapy Tables.jpg

Meet Charlotte Anderson, physiotherapist and owner of ALPHA Health.

In just 3 short years Charlotte has built a team of multidisciplinary experts and ALPHA is set to soar to even greater heights in the next 12 months to come. Not only has Charlotte been busy building a business, she has also been undergoing a PhD in physiotherapy.

Charlotte treats a variety of patients (sports, wcb, mva, private) and know's how important it is for both patient and physiotherapist to have a really good physiotherapy table and equipment.

Here is what Charlotte has to say about selecting a physiotherapy treatment table: 

"On the one hand, you want a bed that patients feel 100% safe and comfortable on. And on the other hand, you need a bed that can adapt to suit your treatment needs so you can work in an ergonomic manner that protects your body over the long term." 

Today we are going to share what Charlotte like/don’t like about CSC's top 6 best selling physiotherapy table and equipment, as well as which type of practice these tables are most suited to and some pros, cons, and benefits that may help you make a better decision.

QUALITY

Durability is important for any physiotherapy beds and equipment, since these are generally item that get used everyday.

All the products at CSC are great quality, but the Cardon CTT 3 Section Physiotherapy Table and the Chattanooga Montane Atlas Physiotherapy Table would be my top picks for quality as they provide more options in terms of stability.

FLEXIBILITY

If your patient’s need an item that offers more flexibility of use, my top picks are the Cardon CTT 3 Section Physiotherapy Table, the Cardon Cosmos 100 Hi-Lo Massage Table and the Cardon Traction Treatment Table, which have more positioning options available to aid different types of treatments and patient comfort.

 

COMFORT LEVEL

Although all the beds are comfortable, the Cardon Cosmos 100 Hi-Lo Massage Table offers a 3" comfort foam, whereas all the others have a 1.5" foam.

 
PURPOSE

One of your main considerations for choosing a physiotherapy equipment is the purpose. What types of patients do you treat?

If you do manual therapies that require lots of alternative positioning of the patient, choose one of the more flexible beds such as the Cardon Cosmos 100 Hi-Lo Massage Table and the Cardon CTT 3 Section Physiotherapy Table. Otherwise, a standard bed with just a few options such as the Classic 3 Section Treatment Table will suit all needs in most cases, and still provide a reasonable amount of flexibility.

 
PRICE

Like all available products there are often price ranges to consider. So here’s how the physiotherapy beds sum up from lowest retail price to highest:

BEST OF THE BEST

All of our contenders are great products and your selection will ultimately depend on purpose. However, for a good physiotherapy bed Cardon CTT 3 Section Physiotherapy Table is the best of the best and is a popular choice for physiotherapist in Canada. 

It has flexibility and comfort and has many additional add-ons to ensure the bed can be adapted for use both now and in the future. The adjustable height allows for good ergonomics for physiotherapist. The adjustable table allows for patients to lye, recline or sit.

It has a soft touch power lift. It has 80 color options for top cover. And is built for longevity in everyday practice.

 

BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

The Classic 3 Section Treatment Table is my choice for best bang.

Being the lowest price table, it is obviously the most cost effective. But, that doesn't mean you compromise on quality. Though the options aren't as great as other tables, it does have reasonable flexibility and will suit many physiotherapists for most of their daily treatment needs.
