Technical Information

We use state of the art design tools, such as 3D solid modelling and in house rapid prototyping, to assist them in getting new designs into development and manufacture. Whilst designing new products, all manufacturing capabilities available are taken into consideration, such as CNC wood cutting, laser profiling and robot welding, which deliver reliable build quality and repeatability of accurate components, time after time. A typical innovative use of these processes is evident in a high loaded components such as the ram bracket, a common item on many of our couches, where using laser profiling we have been able to make the parts interlock, adding immense strength, even before welding! This is typical of the attention to detail that they pride themselves with, and sets them apart from other couch manufacturers, giving confidence in the reliability and longevity of the products they

Mechanical Safety & Load Testing

All our products have been tested to the applicable EN 60601-1:2006+A12:2014 (E) the General requirements for basic safety and essential performance. Our couches have been thoroughly tested with a two and a half times
safe working load (in excess of 600Kg loaded evenly, for in excess of one hour, to prove load support capability without failure. Our products are tested in accordance to Clauses Static Forces of EN60601-1:2006 Not only do our products have high safe working loads (typically 240Kg), but our products also lift the rated safe working load from the minimum height to the maximum height smoothly.

CE Marking & Quality System

We operate a Quality Management System in accredited and approved to ISO 13485:2016. SEERS Medical products comply with the Essential Requirements in Annex I of EC Directive 93/42/EC, with all relevant design, production records, risk assessments, product testing and labelling information recorded in the documentation file labelled the “Technical File”. All products carry a unique serial number for trace-ability of build date, model number and associated build records.

Electrical Safety

All these products comply to EN 60601 1:2006+A12:2014 (E) the General requirements for basic safety and essential performance. In addition, the actuation and control systems used on our products are marked with the UL mark, demonstrating compliance to UL60601-1 and CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 601.1-M90, meeting the requirements for USA and Canada. The actuation control system is also marked with approval to C-ETL-US No. 3154358.


The upholstered couch sections satisfies flammability requirements to the standards of BS 7176:1995 (medium hazard) using ignition sources 0 (cigarette), 1 (gas) as defined in BS EN. 1921-1 and 2 and 5 (crib) BS 5852:1990.


The variable height couches detailed on this site have a lifetime frame warranty and five years warranty on all other components.
