Actuator systems for patient lifts

There are two clear trends. The future is set to be more challenging, with the population getting older and more people suffering the effects of obesity. A greater degree of care is required overall. The regulations regarding healthcare equipment and tools are tightened all the time, and specify standards for product performance. However, all patients are still entitled to proper care at the hospital. Using LINAK actuators for your patient lift will not only create smooth movement, it will also provide numerous benefits.

  • Safety improving features and low maintenance
  • Norm compliant products to help your approval process
  • Experienced partner with a global presence

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

Add safety features and minimise maintenance
Striving to eliminate hazards by using hospital equipment is a key focus area for everyone working within healthcare – LINAK included. Repetitive testing of all systems is mandatory at LINAK. We do this to ensure durable products with flawless performance throughout a long lifetime. The need for maintenance is minimised and features like SDT help read out system status data to align with statutory scheduled service.

Regulations to ensure safety for patients as well as staff are continually sharpened. Equipment like patient lifts have to obtain certain certifications and approvals.
