• We describe the design of a surgical equipment/instrumentation cart that provides accessibility, mobility, convenience, conservation of floor space, and efficient use of vertical air space. This multiple-shelf cart allows organization and coordination of multiple pieces of equipment. The attached working shelves replace the multiple Mayo stands and free up needed floor space. This cart provides for easy storage and unnecessary movement of equipment and potential damage. The power strips on the rear of the cart eliminate the multiple electrical cords and potential injury to operating personnel and equipment malfunction.
