Hybrid ORs enable numerous interdisciplinary use as well as conventional procedures, in a highly cost-efficient and flexible way. The solution includes several Getinge devices such as a special Hybrid OR table, surgical lights, pendants and anesthesia machines but also products like modular room systems and OR integration systems. It is setup in combination with imaging systems from world leading partners.
