Before buying a therapy table, you have to know which type of table you need.
Should it be stationary or mobile and foldable? Does the weight play a role and which features are important? What kind of therapy will you offer? How much space can it take up?
In this blog article, we will show you the pros and cons so you can make the right decision without any problems.
What is a mobile massage table good for?
Mobile massage tables are generally light and foldable and with that good for transport. This way you can act upon your client's needs and are not bound to a practice. Even though it is light, mobile tables are very stable. This is made possible through full-length hinges and steel ropes which reinforce and secure the legs of the wooden or aluminum frame. This way even a mobile table can hold a dynamic weight of 250 kg without problems. Putting a massage table together only requires one person. You won't need any help here. You can find easily explained tutorials for putting tables up and folding them together on our YouTube channel. Furthermore, mobile tables can manually be adjusted in height and some models offer a tilted back to meet the client's needs.
Mobile massage tables are usually budget-friendly but have fewer features than stationary tables. The height can only be adjusted manually and only in steps. Putting the table up also is a bit complicated in the beginning but with some practice, this soon won't be a problem anymore.
So why a stationary table?
Those who don't plan to work outside their practice should consider purchasing a stationary therapy table. They offer all the features you need to allow your client to enjoy the most comfortable treatment. Plus, they also boost the ergonomy at your workplace. Depending on the number of segments, a varying amount of elements like arm or leg rests can be adjusted.
One special eye-catcher for physiotherapy offices, clinics and spas are our tables from Coinfycare. The modern, height-adjustable therapy tables can be used for physiotherapy, osteopathy and manual therapy. Unlike the mobile tables, the height can be adjusted precisely via a circulating switching rail and the retractable wheels below the frame allow you to move the therapy table with the patient on it. A comfortable but still effective treatment is also being ensured by the 5cm fine-cell foam padding and the adjustable headrest. Furthermore, many stationary tables have an integrated paper roll holder. It allows you to fully concentrate on the customer and gives your treatment a smooth flow.
Stationary therapy tables take up a lot of space so make sure your new gem fits well into the room before purchasing it. The price of a stationary table also is much higher than the one of its mobile counterpart but awaiting you are an especially high quality, longevity and all features you need to offer your client the best possible treatment.
You're spoilt for choice
Whether mobile or stationary - both options are great for beginners as well as experienced therapists. Not only the price plays a role in making your decision but also the needed features. Whereas a mobile table allows you to work at more than just one place, you can offer an extraordinarily comfortable treatment thanks to a stationary table and can adjust the table quickly and precisely. This way you will optimize your work and stay in your customer's memory for a long time.
