• Swiss Innovation & Precision

    Schaerer ARCUS

    As surgeon I always have to question my work, my tools and my team to push the boundaries in terms of innovation and precision. Working the last years with Schaerer Medical and the Schaerer Surgical Tables showed me that products from Switzerland always exceed my expectations.

Schaerer ARCUS

The Schaerer ARCUS is a unique heavy weight Surgical Table from SCHAERER MEDICAL. Featuring the famous Schaerer offset cantilevered base for maximum imaging access, the ARCUS is designed for general surgery as well as specialty use. The Schaerer ARCUS is extremely easy to use and can support a static patient weight up to 1100 lbs / 500 kg and a dynamic patient weight up to 800 lbs / 360 kg. Like all of our products, patient safety and operating convenience are of primary importance.


Premium Line

​Schaerer ARCUS in Detail

​Maximum capacity

High patient weight (500/360kg - 1100/800lbs) for safety and all kind of patient positions, operations, and all surgical disciplines without any limitation due to high weight capacity compared with tables that have sliding table tops.

Maximum stability

Self-compensating dynamic floor lock system. The dynamic hydraulic floor lock system corrects uneven floors.

Maximum height adjustment of 23,8"/605 mm

With the large column range and advanced telescopic column design it can move safe and stable from very low 21,5"/545mm to very high 45"/1150mm (without pads). 

Maximum flexibility

Schaerer ARCUS is a universal table, which can be used for all surgical disciplines. With all the unique features surgeons can work and do all treatments with no limitation.

Emergency Panel on the base

Sometimes there is no good access to the column of the table and it is easier access to the base of the table (head side).

Maximum accessibility

Maximum free area because of eccentric column design. Even in standard configuration the Arcus table has a huge x-ray window of 1240mm/48,8".

Maximum safety

Arcus surgical tables represent the ultimate safety standards in operating tables.

Arcus 501-701 tables engineered with airplane safety standards in mind, and they are the only tables available with a totally redundant backup system. Consisting of a completely independent power supply, separate batteries, control devices and motor/pump units.

Maximum patient comfort

High quality mattress for long operations and heavy weight patients. Also for normal seize/weight patients the quality of the pad is of importance and not primarily the thickness.

5th wheel has advantages to manoeuvre the table stable and safe and turn it on the spot in the OR-room.
Slow mode function
Accurate and smooth (slow mode) motion for safe movements during surgery.
Maximum quality with Swiss precision
Manufactured in Switzerland with design and engineering on highest standards, in accordance with certified quality standards  ISO 13485:2016.
