WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. A device for providing lift assistance for an articulating limb support of a surgery table, comprising:

a joint mount coupled with a joint housing comprising a first joint; and

a spring device having a first end and a second end, the first end of the spring device connected to the joint housing by a second joint, the second end of the spring device connected to the joint mount, the spring device configured to actuate the joint housing in a range between a first position and a second position, the first position corresponding to a compressed position of the spring device, the second position corresponding to an extended position of the spring device; wherein,

the joint housing configured to be coupled to a distal end of a spar, the spar being capable of supporting at least one limb of a patient for a surgical procedure, the spring device and the joint mount being distal to the joint housing relative to the spar.

2. The device of claim 1, further comprising:

a swing arm having a first end and a second end, the first end of the swing arm attached to the second end of the spring device, and the second end of the swing arm attached to the joint mount via an arm, the swing arm capable of actuating from a non-extended position when the joint housing is between its first and second positions, to an extended position upon the joint housing reaching the third position, wherein the joint housing reaches a third position upon the swing arm reaching the extended position and the spring device reaching the extended position.

3. The device of claim 1, wherein the first joint and the second joint comprise a rotary joint of at least one degree, and the joint housing provides at least two degrees of freedom to the spar.

4. The device of claim 1, wherein the spring device is preloaded with at least 450 pounds of force when in the extended position.

5. The device of claim 3, wherein the joint mount further comprises:

a mount connector, the mount connector being configured to: (i) couple with a spar mount assembly, and (ii) maintain alignment of the joint mount and the spring device with the spar mount assembly while the joint housing transitions between the first and second positions, and as the spar moves in two degrees of freedom.

6. The device of claim 5, wherein the spar mount assembly includes a lever, and actuation of the lever causes the mount connector to disengage from the spar mount assembly.

7. The device of claim 5, wherein the joint mount maintains alignment with the spar mount assembly while the joint housing pivots between the first and second positions.

8. The device of claim 5, wherein the joint housing comprises a cavity therein, the cavity configured to receive a ball member extending from the joint mount.

9. The device of claim 5, wherein the second joint coupling the spring device and the joint housing includes a cavity therein.

10. The device of claim 8, wherein the joint housing pivots with respect to the ball member positioned in the cavity of the joint housing.

11. The device of claim 7, wherein the pivoting of the j oint housing between the first and second positions is caused by actuating a proximal end of the spar, the proximal end of the spar capable of being maneuvered by a user.

12. The device of claim 1, wherein the spar includes a metal flange coupled to the joint housing, wherein the joint mount, the first joint and the spring device are distal to the metal flange relative to the spar.

13. The device of claim 11 , wherein positioning of the j oint mount, the j oint housing and the spring device with respect to the metal flange causes no effect on x-ray imaging and does not impede radiolucency of the spar.

14. The device of claim 1, wherein the spring device reduces the effort needed to lift a spar supporting a patient’s leg by at least 50 %.

15. The device of claim 2, wherein the first position of the j oint housing corresponds to a spar angle of about -36 degrees and the second position of the joint housing corresponds to a spar angle of about 14 degrees, and the third position of the joint housing corresponds to a spar angle of about 28 degrees.

16. The device of claim 2, wherein the actuation of the swing arm is unassisted.

17. The device of claim 2, wherein the actuation of the swing arm is spring-assisted.

18. The device of claim 1, wherein the spar moves relative to a single axis.

19. The device of claim 1, wherein the second end of the spring device is connected to the joint mount by a device selected from a hinge and a clevis pin.

20. The device of claim 5, wherein the second joint coupling the spring device and the joint housing comprises the same degree of freedom as the first joint.

21. A device for providing lift assistance for an articulating limb support of a surgery table, comprising:

a joint mount coupled with a joint housing comprising a first joint;

a spring device having a first end and a second end, the first end of the spring device connected to the joint housing by a second joint, the second end of the spring device connected to the joint mount, the spring device configured to actuate the joint housing in a range between a first position and a second position, the first position corresponding to a compressed position of the spring device, the second position corresponding to an extended position of the spring device; and

a swing arm having a first end and a second end, the first end of the swing arm attached to the second end of the spring device, and the second end of the swing arm attached to the joint mount via an arm, the swing arm capable of actuating from a non-extended position when the joint housing is between its first and second positions, to an extended position upon the joint housing reaching the third position;

wherein,

the joint housing configured to be coupled to a distal end of a spar, the spar being capable of supporting at least one limb of a patient for a surgical procedure, the spring device and the joint mount being distal to the joint housing relative to the spar, and

the joint housing reaches a third position upon the swing arm reaching the extended position and the spring device reaching the extended position.
