Systems for hospital beds

LINAK actuator systems create smooth movement in hospital beds and enhance functionality with intelligence and many value-adding features. The specification of a LINAK system depends on individual requirements. Focus can be on load, speed, noise, number of channels (actuators), or number of accessories. LINAK provides flexible systems that satisfy all market demands. Three examples are shown for basic to advanced solutions.

Actuator systems for hospital beds
Take one or more tried and tested lifting columns and/or actuators. Connect them to a control box and grab an intuitively designed control. Then you have a system. Install specialised software and you have an advanced system.

For three decades, LINAK has been the innovative frontrunner in the healthcare sector. We deliver system solutions that are tailored to the needs of our customers - and then some.

A common system for hospital beds
The specification for a hospital bed system depends on individual requirements. Focus can be on power, speed, noise, number of channels (actuators), or number of accessories. That is why LINAK operates with three different setups for hospital beds: Basic, Medium and Advanced.

To inspire you, here are some examples of typical system setups:

Basic:
Control box: CO41
Actuators: LA40 (one or two)
Control: ACOM
Features: none

Medium:
Control box: CO61
Actuators: LA40 (up to four)
Control: HB80 (with lock)
Features: ACO (intelligent attendant control)

Advanced:
Control box: CO71
Actuators/Columns: LA40 and/or BL1 (up to four)
Control: HB80 (with lock)
Features: ACT (intelligent Attendant Control with Touchscreen), Scale, OOB (Out Of Bed detection), UBL (Under Bed Light), EBC (Electric Brake Control), Battery Backup, Power Security (alarm if power cord is connected while moving the bed), and much more.

Much more than movement
For years, safety and ergonomics have been of utmost importance in this sector. They still are! Optimising workflows, saving time for staff and providing more time for patients are also key to better welfare. LINAK systems are based on those requirements. 

The CA30, CA40 and CO61 all have many advantages in this respect. Among other things, they are ‘first failure safe’. This means that unintended movement can never occur and that potential short circuits cannot harm or destroy the system.

All LINAK systems are designed for easy compliance with the EN60601 standard, and are tested and certified in accordance with appropriate international medical standards.

The high standards of quality within our core focus, actuators, control boxes and controls, improve users' quality of life by improving ergonomics and providing reliable and smooth movement in beds.
