Actuator solutions for hospital beds

Hospitals across the world face a reality in which there is fewer staff to attend to still more patients. Concurrently more elderly, obese, and multiple diagnosed patients are among the needy. Both trends call for improved applications able to help improve comfort for patients, ergonomics for staff, and the degree of efficiency for hospitals. Using LINAK actuator systems to provide movement and intelligent features to hospital beds will allow manufacturers to meet demands and have several advantages in a fierce market.
