I always thought the thinner leg by the wall was for "attaching" to it and they didn't need the same support as the one opposite the wall.
Nice explanation which makes sense "in-universe", IMHO.

Probably made of light materials, such tables would otherwise become projectiles once the ship hits stormy "weather" and I don't think the sickbay patients would be too happy about that.

Also this definitely adds a maritime touch, since on most ships you also have tables and the likes fixed and secured (just shows again how much thought they put even into trivial things like tables to enhance the illusion of being on a ship and not in a studo set ).
