Claims

What is claimed is:

1. A medical device suspension system, including:

a spindle having an outer major surface and extending along a longitudinal axis;

a cable management cover surrounding the spindle about the longitudinal axis and having an inner major surface, the cable management cover extending along the longitudinal axis between a first end and a second end such that a gap is formed between the inner major surface of the cable management cover and a portion of the outer major surface of the spindle;

a hub rotatably mounted to the spindle, the hub including a hub housing; a top hub cover disposed along the longitudinal axis between the hub and the cable management cover, the top hub cover defining an end of the gap formed between the inner major surface of the cable management cover and the outer major surface of the spindle along the longitudinal axis, the top hub cover comprising a passage in fluid communication with an internal volume of the hub housing, the top hub cover rotatable with respect to the spindle about the

longitudinal axis; and

a cable provided within the gap, the cable entering the gap proximate the first end of the cable management cover at a fixed location about the longitudinal axis, the cable passing into the hub housing through the passage of the top hub cover, wherein rotation of the top hub cover about the longitudinal axis causes the position of the passage to rotate about the longitudinal axis, while the position at which the cable enters the gap about the longitudinal axis remains stationary.

2. The medical device suspension system of claim 1 , further comprising a mounting plate, wherein the spindle is mounted to the mounting plate.

3. The medical device suspension system of claim 2, wherein the mounting plate

includes cable routing orifice in fluid communication with the gap.

4. The medical device suspension system of claim 2, wherein the cable

management cover is mounted to the mounting plate and the top hub cover is rotatable with respect to the cable management cover about the longitudinal axis

5. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 1 -4, wherein:

the spindle comprises a drop tube portion and a hub mounting portion;

the drop tube portion extends along the longitudinal axis between a first end and a second end;

the hub mounting portion extends along the longitudinal axis between a first end and a second end;

the first end of the hub mounting portion is mounted to the drop tube portion proximate the second end of the drop tube portion; and

the hub is mounted to the hub mounting portion.

6. The medical device suspension system of claim 5, wherein the length of the drop tube portion along the longitudinal axis is 125 mm to 675 mm.

7. The medical device suspension system of claim 5, wherein the length of the drop tube portion along the longitudinal axis is 150 mm to 330 mm.

8. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 1 -7, wherein the gap is an annular gap, and the cable is wrapped at least 180° around the spindle.

9. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 1 -7, wherein the gap is an annular gap, and the cable is wrapped at least 360° around the spindle.

10. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 1 -9, further comprising an additional hub rotatably mounted to the spindle, the additional hub located further from the top hub cover along the longitudinal axis than the hub.

11. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 1 -10, wherein the gap between the inner major surface of the cable management cover and the portion of the outer major surface of the spindle is 100 mm or less.

12. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 1 -11 , wherein the top hub cover comprises:

a first major surface and a second major surface opposite the first major surface and spaced apart from the first major surface along the longitudinal axis; a side wall extending from the first major surface in a direction parallel to the longitudinal axis; and

a recessed portion of the major surfaces that is offset relative to the remainder of the major surfaces along the longitudinal axis, the recessed portion constituting the passage in fluid communication the internal volume of the hub housing.

13. A medical device suspension system, including:

a mounting plate comprising a cable routing orifice;

a spindle mounted to the mounting plate, the spindle having an outer major surface and extending along a longitudinal axis;

a cable management cover surrounding the spindle about the longitudinal axis and having an inner major surface, the cable management cover extending along the longitudinal axis between a first end and a second end such that a gap is formed between the inner major surface of the cable management cover and a portion of the outer major surface of the spindle, the cable routing orifice in fluid communication with the gap;

a hub rotatably mounted to the spindle, the hub including a hub housing; and a top hub cover disposed along the longitudinal axis between the hub and the cable management cover, the hub cover defining an end of the gap formed

between an inner major surface of the cable management cover and an outer major surface of the spindle along the longitudinal axis, the top hub cover comprising a passage in fluid communication with an internal volume of the hub housing, the top hub cover rotatable with respect to the spindle about the longitudinal axis

wherein rotation of the top hub cover about the longitudinal axis causes the position of the passage to rotate about the longitudinal axis, while the position at which the cable enters the gap about the longitudinal axis remains stationary.

14. The medical device suspension system of claim 13, wherein the cable management cover is mounted to the mounting plate and the top hub cover is rotatable with respect to the cable management cover about the longitudinal axis

15. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 13 or 14, wherein: the spindle comprises a drop tube portion and a hub mounting portion;

the drop tube portion extends along the longitudinal axis between a first end and a second end;

the hub mounting portion extends along the longitudinal axis between a first end and a second end;

the first end of the hub mounting portion is mounted to the drop tube portion proximate the second end of the drop tube portion; and

the hub is mounted to the hub mounting portion.

16. The medical device suspension system of claim 15, wherein the length of the drop tube portion along the longitudinal axis is 125 mm to 675 mm.

17. The medical device suspension system of claim 15, wherein the length of the drop tube portion along the longitudinal axis is 150 mm to 330 mm.

18. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 13-17, further comprising an additional hub rotatably mounted to the spindle, the additional hub located from the top hub cover along the longitudinal axis than the hub.

19. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 13-18, wherein the gap between the inner major surface of the cable management cover and the portion of the outer major surface of the spindle is less than 100 mm.

20. The medical device suspension system of any one of claims 13-19, wherein the top hub cover comprises:

a first major surface and a second major surface opposite the first major surface and spaced apart from the first major surface along the longitudinal axis; a side wall extending from the first major surface in a direction parallel to the longitudinal axis; and

a recessed portion of the major surfaces that is offset relative to the remainder of the major surfaces along the longitudinal axis, the recessed portion constituting the passage in fluid communication the internal volume of the hub housing.
