In operating rooms and offices, Mayo stands—portable instrument stands with trays on top—are used to keep surgical supplies and equipment. Mayo stands offer a suitable location that may be placed adjacent to surgical sites without getting in the way and can be disinfected. Mayo stands are available in a multitude of designs to accommodate various demands. The instrument tray may be easily cleaned and maintained because it is removable. Mayo stand coverings, either sterile or non-sterile, can cover this little instrument stands. A Mayo stand's height can be altered with ease, and some Mayo stands come with additional practical features like a foot- or thumb-controlled height adjustment.

Mayo trolley benefits
- Increasing accessible floor space during operations so that more students can fit in the surgical theater to observe - Charles and William Mayo, the two eldest sons of the renowned Mayo physician family, invented the Mayo instrument stand to optimize the available floor area during operations. To improve visibility, the Mayo brothers, who were surgical professionals in the late 1800s and early 1900s, incorporated mirrors and lighting into the design of their operating rooms.
The Mayo stand was created to meet their demand for a portable, tiny tray that could carry instruments nearby while taking up the least amount of area. Most Mayo tables feature short legs or just one leg to fit beneath operating tables or beds. Doing this allows them to use less floor space in operating rooms and during office-based medical procedures. The surgical bed or patient chair can only interfere with other surgical team members, equipment, or tables because of the small footprint.
- Efficiency Gains in the Operating Room - The healthcare sector is placing an urgent emphasis on reducing waste and health costs. By reducing the time and effort needed to carry and access surgical equipment during a treatment, Mayo trays help operating rooms operate as efficiently as possible. Aside from reducing the number of unnecessary tools, correctly sized and ordered trays also make room for occasionally used yet very significant surgical devices.
The surgical room crew depends on this element of speed and ease to function at their highest level. An improved patient experience and increased efficiency are the outcomes.
- Customizable Structure - The equipment and resources needed for clinical care and minimally invasive procedures are very different from those required for lengthy, extensive surgeries performed in an operating room. Because of this, Mayo stands are available in various sizes, offering space for effectively organizing surgical equipment and procedures. They can carry a variety of instruments, from holding gauze and standard surgical tools during basic approaches to supporting patients' limbs during orthopedic surgery.
The smaller end of the size range, or around 12 by 19 inches, should be adequate for light procedures to support the procedure's necessary tools. Stands with dimensions between 16 x 21-inch and 20 x 25-inch trays may typically accommodate mid-sized stands for systems requiring between five and twenty instruments.

The largest Mayo stand, measuring roughly 30 by 26 inches, accommodates circumstances where an entire table is required close to a surgical site. These tables work best for intricate treatments in hospitals specializing in orthopedics and cardiology, which need expensive equipment. Many of the most significant models might require a removable stainless-steel tray. There are various types available at different heights, and most trays have a 1/4 to 3/4-inch lip to keep tools from rolling off the side while keeping them within easy reach.
The efficiency of your Mayo stand can be increased by selecting one compatible with the size of the items used in your practice. Making the appropriate tray size and configuration choices ensures that your practice's or organization's demands are satisfied at the lowest possible cost. Choose the proper size to ensure that you obtain the necessary amount of room and functionality without paying too much. Regardless of your size, Mayo provides a flexible and practical way to keep all the required equipment close at hand and in one location.
