Wheelchair solutions

LINAK actuators help create precise and low-noise adjustment of height, leg, 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 multifunctional electric wheelchair and have many enclosed benefits.

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

Wheelchair users are highly dependent on their chair to perform perfectly in various everyday tasks. Generally, wheelchair users want to live a normal life without constant help of carers. Electric actuators create the movement the user cannot do herself and they provide a very robust application able to minimise the inconvenience of the disability. Everything from adjusting chair height to optimising leg rests or changing the backrest position help improve ergonomics.

Rely on well-tested actuators
Every LINAK product is tested thoroughly prior to release. This is not only done to meet international medical approvals, but also to make it easier for manufacturers to comply with the high contemporary requirements for wheelchair testing.

Create strong yet smooth and low-noise movement
Electric actuators have many advantages. Most obvious is the almost noiseless movement and the 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.

Have a global partner with years of experience
Actuators for wheelchairs are where it all began for LINAK for more than 30 years ago. Through the years, the 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.
