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 constantly tightened, 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
  • Standards-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 in the care sector, LINAK included. Repetitive testing of all systems is mandatory at LINAK. We do this to ensure durable products with flawless performance throughout a long service life. The need for maintenance is minimised, and features such as SDT help you read system status data to align with statutory scheduled servicing. Our First Failure Safe solutions help ensure that your patient lift works in a safe way.

Live up to standards with compliant systems
Regulations to ensure patient safety as well as that of staff are being continually sharpened. Equipment such as patient lifts have to obtain certain certifications and approvals. LINAK takes safe patient handling very seriously. LINAK actuator systems are tested and certified to be compliant with international medical standards – 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 make your patient lift prepared for easy compliance with the requirements of EN10535 for patient lifts.

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 everywhere – with products, advice and local market insight.
