Actuator systems for couches/TABLES

Actuator Systems for Treatment & Examination Couches/Tables

Different types of systems for different types of needs! Whether you like a basic system for your treatment and examination couch/table, or an advanced customised solution we have the right system for you. A typical couch/table system is built up around 3-6 main products. One or more lifting actuators or columns performing the movement up and down and ensuring ergonomic correct working conditions for the healthcare personnel and comfort for the patient when ascending and getting off the couch. A back lift actuator ensuring a comfortable rest position for the patient, sometimes more actuators are mounted to control leg or tilt functions. A control box controlling the movement and a hand control or footswitch to activate the required motion. The specification of each of these products truly depends on your individual need and design ideas.

For inspiration, a typical couch would be built up around one of each category products. No matter what solution you choose you will get a top class system that improves the quality of life for the users by improving ergonomics and providing a reliable, smooth and quiet movement of the couch.

MEDLINE & CARELINE Couch Control Boxes

Depending on your needs for functionality and accessories, we provide different kinds of control box choices. The software inside the control boxes can be customised or you can get standard software. OpenBus control boxes provide a high safety level and more alternatives enable service data to be stored in the control boxes to ensure that the couches are up and running at all times.

You can choose among different OpenBus control boxes depending on your needs. The CB6S provides up to 4 channels and the CB16 up to 5 channels. Both solutions ensure reliable movement and high safety. With a CB20, it is possible to add up to 6 actuators and more control units and accessories. Various different accessories and options are available depending on your needs. If you need a basic control box a CA40 is a good and reliable choice.

MEDLINE & CARELINE Couch Actuators

Lifting columns such as the BL1 are great solutions for couches/tables due to the clean design and simple construction. No hands or legs can get caught between the moving parts adding a safety aspect.

MEDLINE & CARELINE IC ACTUATORS LA43 IC and LA44 IC with intelligent control: Intelligent Control (IC) enables a simple system consisting of 1 or 2 actuators, a Switch Mode Power Supply and a hand control or a footswitch.

Intelligent OpenBus™ PCB enables the possibility to add OpenBus accessories. IC actuators are ideal for couches and tables for treatment and examination where space for mounting of a control box is limited.

Lifting actuators for different load capacity are available. The LA40 is our silent and well-proven solution when handling high load, the LA34 is available for handling even higher load and the LA44 when handling highest load. All actuators are strong choices for couches. 

As backrest or leg rest actuators, we recommend our extremely silent LA31, our basic functionality LA27 depending on need for lifting capacity and couch construction. 


Whether you look for a footswitch or a hand control, we have solutions. Among footswitches, we recommend FS3 for control of up to two actuators. The FS3 is designed together with end-users and is very intuitive - easy to use.

Controlling the couch/table can also be done by using a handset. Our HB80 or HB70 are good choices. The HB80 provides an ergonomic design and an optional magnet or hook.

Wishing for a differentiated way of controlling couches/tables, we recommend our FPP, enabling flexibility and easy reach ability for both treatment provider and those who undergo a treatment.
