This manus® contribution presents a further application from the fi eld of medicine: the vertically adjustable examination table has been designed for eye examinations. It is used, for example, when patients are in wheelchairs and cannot be examined using a regular table. For this reason, the pullout must be long enough but still light. For this reason, drylin® N telescopic rails were used for this application. They can be extended to an overall length of 1.2 metres.
