Operating Table Clamps

Operating theatre tables are fitted with side rails to which positioning equipment is attached. These rails range in size according to their make and origin. In order to achieve stable positioning, the correct sized clamp must be used. 

Approximate rail sizes are as follows:

  • A Rails: 28 x 10mm, to suit American Side Rails, eg. Skytron, Steris.
  • B Rails: 32 x 6mm to suit British Side Rails, eg. Eshmann 
  • D Rails: 38 x 6mm, eg. Denyer
  • E Rails: 25 x 10mm, to suit European Side Rails, eg. Maquet, Trumpf
