AbstractA patient treatment table for supporting a patient laying in a generally horizontal position for treatment at an elevated level above the floor surface includes a base adapted to rest on the floor surface for supporting the table for movement between a first position for patient treatment and a second position for mounting and dismounting. The table includes a control system for moving the table between said positions having an electric motor and/or electrically activated hydraulic control valves and a safety system for deenergizing the electric motor and/or deactivating the control valves in response to a hazardous condition. The system includes a switch mat positioned on the floor surface adjacent the base which is operative to deenergize the electric motor and/or deactivate the control valves in response to pressure applied to the switch mat. The table includes further safety systems activated by pressure applied for preventing injury to a patient's foot, arm or limb as the table is moved from the second position toward the first position.
