Actuator systems for patient lifts

There are two clear trends. The future will be challenged by an aging population and more people suffering the effects of obesity, all of whom will require a greater degree of care. The number of regulations regarding performance and safety in healthcare equipment continue to become more stringent. However, everyone is still entitled to proper care. Using LINAK actuators for your patient lift or sit-to-stand lift will make it strong and robust, provide smooth movement, and give you numerous benefits.

  • Improved ergonomics, more comfort and minimal maintenance
  • Standards-compliant products to help your approval process
  • Experienced partner with a global presence

Whether you need a standard lift solution or an advanced system with several intelligent features for your patient lift, LINAK offers a viable concept. Strong lift actuators and solid balance coordination with leg-spreaders create smooth movement. Value-adding features such as Service Data Tool (SDT) help improve ergonomics and make daily care more cost-efficient, reducing downtime for your lift.

Improve ergonomics and minimise maintenance
Striving to eliminate hazardous lifts is a key focus area for everyone working in the care sector. At LINAK, all actuator products are thoroughly tested as a system. This is done to ensure your patient lift will perform flawlessly throughout its service life. Our ‘First Failure Safe’ solutions make sure your patient lift works in a safe way, while our SDT will help you read out system status data to align with statutory scheduled maintenance. All for the comfort of residents as well as carers.

Live up to the norm with compliant actuators
Safety regulations for care applications are constantly sharpened. Equipment such as patient lifts must obtain certain certifications and approvals. LINAK takes safe patient handling seriously. Our actuator systems are tested and certified to follow international medical standards (e.g. IEC 60601-1: 2005 3rd edition, ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1:2005 3rd edition and CAN/CSA-22.2 No. 60601-1:2008). This aims to prepare your patient lift for easy compliance with the requirements listed in the standard, EN10535.  

Trust a global partner with decades of experience
LINAK not only has an extensive product portfolio. Over the past 30+ years, the organisation has grown with numerous sales offices worldwide. This makes LINAK able to support customers almost anywhere – with products, advice, and local market insights. Whether you need a standard or an advanced solution, or perhaps a development partner for a new project, LINAK can fit the bill.
