The BIOPTRON Pro 1 is available either with table stand or with
floor stand. For the BIOPTRON MedAll and for the BIOPTRON 2 we recommend
one of the optional available floor stands. Not only that the stand
increases the comfort of treating, furthermore it expands the device-capacity
by making it possible to treat areas of the body, which are difficult
to reach without stand.
