Spotlight Vendor - Midmark July 10 2015
The Midmark Company’s stylish and affordable line of products continues to improve healthcare, as they have for the last 100 years! That’s right, they are celebrating 100 years in business right now with their portfolio of products that includes Procedure and Exam Tables, Medical Casework, Diagnostic Equipment, Procedure and Exam Lights, Sterilization Equipment, and much more. The Midmark Ritter 204 Manual Exam Table has become a staple in today’s exam room, while their line of cardiology products, including the IQecg Electrocardiograph and Iqspiro Digital Spirometer, has quickly become a favorite among cardiology specialists.
The Midmark story began in 1915 with the Cummings Machine Company, a manufacturer of concrete mixers owned by E.C Cummings. By 1925, after acquisitions and changes on the board of directors, Industrial Equipment Company was born. In 1967, four medical products with blueprints were purchased, paving their entrance in the medical market. Moving the company to Versailles Ohio in 1969 and reinventing the company, dawned a new identity, Midmark. Since then, the company continues to thrive as an innovator in Medical technologies.
Then, in the early 2000’s, Midmark put their innovative spin on the Brentwood line of Cariology products distinguishing them as not just another table manufacturer. The IQecg Electrocardiograph, the Iqspiro Digital Spirometer and Iqvitals Vital Signs Monitor were all designed to improve office workflow and patient comfort and when improving onteh Brentwood design, Midmark’s design team spoke with the doctors, nurses and technicians that use these devices to see what they wanted. This “listening to the customer” approach helped to upgrade the already popular Iqmark series to the products popular today.
Now in 2015, they continue to innovate and re-invent their product base. The release of the 630 HumanForm Power Procedures Table proves just that, offering natural movement that complements the human body like no other table on the market today. Key improvements were made to create the HumanForm Procedure Table including Motion Profiling, Active Sensing Technology and a Premium Comfort System.
Midmark continues to innovate and improve their products. Check out MonsterMed for great prices on Midmark’s line of Medical Equipment.
Frequently Asked Questions: Exam Tables May 11 2015
With hundred of calls daily, many include FAQ’s on our best selling products. We at MonsterMed proudly introduce our new blog segment, Frequently Asked Questions: Let’s start with Exam Tables.
Since one of our most popular exam tables is the Midmark 204 Exam Table, we receive many calls each day to purchase and/or ask information about the table. Questions include things like upholstery thickness and weight capacity, but most common is the difference between the two upholstery tops, Stitched or Seamless. The 204 is offered with your choice of a Soft-Touch Stitched or Seamless Upholstery Top. The main difference between the two tops is the Seamless Upholstery Top is much easier to clean because it does not have any stitches or folds in the upholstery, plus it’s unique, sleek look. Another FAQ for the Midmark 204 Exam Table is assembly. The upholstery top and drawer panel covers is offered in a separate box than the exam table base. Attaching the top to the table is unbelievable easy and there are instructions as well as YouTube videos online to explain it further.
An exam table that is gaining popularity fast, because of its competitive price, is the Clinton 8870 Family Practice Exam Table. One of the most common questions asked by customers looking for an Exam Table is the difference between this and the Midmark 204 Exam Table. These two Exam Tables recently hashed it out in our battle-dome during one of out Product Battle Blog Posts. Click here to see that battle. Again, assembly is a common question and very easy to answer for the 8870. It comes fully assembled and ready to use right off the pallet.
Recently, we have been being asked about Midmark’s 223 Barrier-Free Power Exam Table. Commonly asked is whether or not an office needs to own a table like this. Our answer is always yes!

The Midmark 223 Barrier-Free Power Exam Table will make this population of patient’s trip to the office a much more enjoyable visit with a barrier-free access to the table.

How We Ship Medical Exam Tables March 12 2015
We at MonsterMed.com are experts in shipping and delivery of all types of Medical Exam Tables. Many medical practices don’t know that they are able to purchase large medical tables such as the Ritter 204 Exam Table or 630 HumanForm Procedure Table, online. But these types of tables are easily shipped across the U.S. Plus, when you buy a table online, you are able to view all possible options and accessories that are available, such as table top upholstery colors and styles. And though coordinating the delivery for a 300+ pound piece of equipment seems difficult, its not for us pros!
We would like to take a moment to explain the shipping procedure of a large item like a medical table.
-Information needed for a shipping quote
There are many factors that come into play when obtaining a delivery quote. Being table shipping pros, we are able to answer most trucking questions without needing to bother you. In most cases, all we need from you to obtain a quote is your zip code, quantity of tables and the type of delivery you prefer. A request from a customer can look as simple as this: “I need a white glove rate for a 204 exam table to zip code 17403”. Simplicity made simple! Our specialists will then contact numerous trucking agencies to obtain the best rate.
Truck deliveries are not as clear-cut as UPS or FedEx deliveries. Each service carries additional fees. The most inexpensive and basic truck delivery is Dock to Dock. Dock to Dock includes a simply delivery to a dock at your facility and is only an option if your facility has a dock for the truck to back up to. If the delivery location does not have a Loading/Unloading Dock, you would have to use the next option Liftgate Delivery. Also called Curbside Delivery, Liftgate Delivery costs more that Dock Delivery because a trailer with a Liftgate is needed for bringing the shipment to the ground. All that is included with this option is bringing the shipment to the ground for the customer.
Any additional handling of merchandise by the delivery company will increase the delivery cost. Inside Delivery can be misleading at times for customers. While the name implies that the table will be brought inside, the accessibility will determine how far it will be taken. The delivery company will only bring the shipment as far as the pallet will allow. If the pallet is too large to fit through the door of the facility, it will not be brought inside. This is where a majority of problems occur with this type of service. If you question whether this will be an issue for your delivery, contact us for the size of the pallet and measure your entrance way to determine if there will be an issue.
-White Glove Delivery
The most popular and delivery option is White Glove which takes the work out of the customer hands and puts it into ours. With White Glove Service, you will receive a phone call prior to delivery to schedule a delivery date and time. On that date, our agents will show up with an assembled, unpacked exam table, ready for installation. They will then bring the table to the room of your choice and remove all shipping debris. The only thing you have to do is have the space for the table clear. This is the most popular option for delivery of an exam table.
Being we deliver so many tables, we have built a nationwide delivery network at the most competitive prices available, and we pass those savings onto you, our beloved customer. Give us a call today and upgrade that old exam table. You will be happy you did!

Why Your Medical Office Needs a Barrier Free Exam Table? March 13 2014
Our customer service representatives hear it all the time…”I would like a quote on your cheapest exam table.” And we fully understand why! Most medical practices are functioning on a reduced budget while the changes in healthcare bring upon increased costs and reduced reimbursements. And though there are less expensive options for exam tables, your office really does need a barrier free power exam table.
If you don’t think you need a Barrier-Free Power Exam Table, or if you are reluctant to spend the extra dollars a Barrier free table costs, consider the following scenario. Picture yourself as a disabled or obese patient, possibly in a wheelchair, on your way to your doctor’s appointment. You park you vehicle in a handicapped parking spot near the front of the building. You carefully get out and make your way to the office entrance by use of a ramp that heads to front office doors. You press the blue handicap button to electronically open the door for you. As you enter the office, you check in via the receptionist’s window that has been lowered purposely for your convenience. Your name is called and you are weighed on a scale that has handrails to assist you. Now you head down a hallway that has been constructed wider than normal to enable a wheelchair. You may stop to use the bathroom and use a handicap accessible stall. You enter the exam room…and suddenly and unexpectedly, you are now face-to-face with a 30” climb to get on the examination table. You have been able to do everything on your own up to this point, but now you require the help of two or more people to simply get onto the table.
That’s where a Barrier-Free Power Exam Table comes in. The table can be lowered to an incredible 18” from the ground which is the same height of most standard wheelchair seats. Once the patient is on the table, it may then be raised to a maximum 37” height. For this reason, many medical practices have chosen to add a Barrier-Free Power Exam Table to either one of two rooms, noting them as handicap accessible exam rooms, while some practices have decided to replace all existing tables with Barrier Free ones.
The Midmark Corporation, a leader in Healthcare Tables, has a few of the best options for Barrier-Free Tables. Their most popular table is the Midmark Ritter 222 Barrier Free Power Exam Table which features power up and down, a 400 lb. Weight capacity and stylish upholstery options. Its sister, the Midmark Ritter 223 Barrier-Free Power Exam Table features a power back rest.
If your office does not have at least one handicap accessible exam room, you may risk losing patient satisfaction. Please consider this option for your office.
