The ElectraFit Story

The initial idea was developed by a gentleman who has provided service and repair to a variety of medical devices for many years, which include older hydraulic power procedure tables, and often thought that some sort of electric actuator could possibly replace the existing hydraulic system, which was not only noisy and oily, but difficult and expensive to repair and maintain.  In December 2010, he sends a Christmas card to a long time friend, who has been unemployed from the engineering design field with time to investigate and mentions a possible project for the new year. In January 2011, discussions begin between the two about the feasibility of this idea concerning an “electric actuator conversion kit” for older hydraulic tables no longer in production.  Decades ago hydraulic systems consisting of hydraulic cylinders, solenoid valves, hoses, and pumps were utilized to provide varying movement of the exam table, being the base, tilt, back and leg sections. These hydraulic systems have seen better days and many of the tables need to be replaced with newer models at a much higher cost, with a typical waiting period of 30 days or more for delivery of a replacement table.  There are many thousands of these tables still in use and a lower cost alternative would be to replace the old hydraulic system with a new electric actuator system. Additional design criteria included the requirement that the new electric actuator system and all of the required components could be installed efficiently, cleanly, and quietly within the confines of a doctors office.  The table is no longer manufactured and this kit will give medical re-furbishing companies the choice of providing a low voltage electric actuator system as an option to repairing the existing outdated hydraulic system. Due to the thoughtful and innovative design, this conversion kit replaces the old hydraulic and electrical systems with no modifications at all to the existing structure of the table.  After two years of intense design and prototype work, ElectraFit was born. With other new projects already in discussion, ElectraFit will continue the search to “apply advanced technology” in other areas of product development, in an effort to extend the life, improve the use and lower future repair costs of existing and new products.
