Lift-O-Mat® INOX stainless steel gas springs provide effortless opening and closing of doors and lids, and can securely hold a door in an open or closed position. It is ideal for medical applications such as prosthetic arms, operating tables and hospital lifts, as well as therapy couches, medical chairs, and stretchers. The spring is constructed from 316 stainless steel to ensure a high level of protection against corrosive environments. Careful material selection of the components has resulted in a nearly iron-free product, with almost no effect on magnetic fields, such as those used in medical technology. Stabilus only uses environmentally friendly oils that are biodegradable and classified as "no hazard to water."
