LINAK hand control HC40 TWIST™ for adjustable comfort beds

HC40 TWIST™ Advanced

The Hand Control HC40 TWIST™ for operating electric adjustable beds is designed to match modern bedroom interiors with features that eliminate the need for multiple bedside devices. No matter how many motors, favourite positions and massage options the bed offers, the design of this remote control remains clean.

The HC40 TWIST™ fits ergonomically in the hands of both right-handers and left-handers. Hold it and you will experience how natural and relaxed the position of your hand is when controlling the bed. Reference lines on the back and concave and convex buttons on the front ensure one-grip-reach-all-buttons and an easy orientation of the remote.

The control is designed for day and night use. The screen brightness adjusts to the surroundings, dimming the light at night, if the user wants to check the time. Shake it sideways twice to illuminate a torch that guides the way in the dark. Set an alarm and wake up peacefully the following morning to a vibrating massage - leaving the partner undisturbed. Grab the remote to stop the alarm and get a personalised good morning greeting. Set the top row buttons to have the favourite features accessible with a single click.

The HC40 TWIST™ is developed for easy customisation, get your own logo as the start-up screen and let your brand be the first thing the user sees. Customise the colour or surface and make a unique offering for a specific brand or bed series.
