The engineer said, “the 80/20 table was designed for transporting patients in electrical wheelchairs onto a physical therapy treadmill so they can receive step training. Patients move forward onto my table by going up the ramp. At this point they are still in their chairs. Then the patients use the aluminum plate to make a 360 degree turn to face the front of the treadmill. From there, the patients are placed in a harness and training begins. When the patients are finished, they are placed in their wheelchairs and they reverse down the ramp.”
SlipNOT® reviewed project details with the engineer and decided the best fit for this application would be aluminum plate due to its lightweight, corrosion resistance, and aesthetic properties. SlipNOT® provided (1) 6061 Grade 2 non-slip aluminum plate that was ¼” thick x 30” wide x 54” long. The facility had their fabricator drill countersunk holes for the plate to be easily bolted down.
