MAQUET Alphastar : Mobile Alpha2 Top
The perfect curve: Earlier positioning devices moved the head along a simple arc of a circle, which did not correspond to human anatomy. With its ďanatomy armĒ the Alpha2 TOP moves the horseshoe-shaped head rest along a more natural line of motion (red line in the illustration). Electric motor power makes for particularly gentle positioning of the head. The result is anatomically correct positioning in every phase of treatment. Compression and extension of the cervical spine (white arrows) are avoided in this way.
