Wheelchair solutions

LINAK actuators help create precise and low-noise adjustment of height, leg support, and backrests in modern wheelchairs.


Actuator systems for modern wheelchairs

Both elderly people and persons with disabilities wish to maintain a mobile and comfortable lifestyle independent of the healthcare system. Empowerment is a key parameter, and with modern electric wheelchairs, self-reliant life is viable like never before. Using LINAK actuators, you will be able to create a multi-functional electric wheelchair with all its inherent benefits.

  • Reliable and thoroughly tested technology
  • Low-noise movement and a compact design
  • Experienced partner with a global presence

Wheelchair users are highly dependent on their chair to perform everyday tasks. Generally, wheelchair users want to live a normal life without the constant help of carers. Electric actuators create the movement users cannot manage themselves and enable a very robust application that can minimise the inconvenience of disability. Everything from adjusting chair height to optimising leg support or changing the backrest position help improve ergonomics.

Rely on tried and tested actuators
Every LINAK product is tested thoroughly prior to release. This is done not only to meet the requirements of international medical approvals, but also to make it easier for manufacturers to comply with the modern stringent wheelchair testing standards.

Create strong yet smooth and low-noise movement
Electric actuators have many advantages. Most obvious is the almost silent movement and smooth motion coordination between actuators. LINAK actuators feature positioning feedback, making them compatible with other control units and delivering safer and more efficient movement.  The compact design means actuators can fit in where room is scarce, affording freedom of design whilst still respecting ergonomics and comfort in wheelchairs.

Benefit from a global partner with years of experience
Actuators for wheelchairs are where it all began for LINAK more than 30 years ago. Over the years, electric actuators have developed into entire systems, transforming modern wheelchairs into hi-tech tools for the disabled. Needs and requirements vary, and collaboration is often necessary to achieve optimal solutions.
As a partner, LINAK strives to listen carefully to the wishes of OEMs, and contributes market insight. A global presence means local focus worldwide, and support always close at hand.
