The Healthcare Challenge

LINAK electric linear actuator systems have to be capable of tackling a future awash with challenges. Obesity, an aging population, more instances of diabetes, and more people suffering with dementia.

The hospital and healthcare sector will face three major challenges in the future.
  • The ageing population will increase the level of care required by patients, impacting hospitals, nursing homes and home care.
  • Lifestyle diseases are an increasing problem in many countries. As global economies improve, the rate of critical and chronic lifestyle diseases also increases. This presents a challenge to the hospital and healthcare sector as medical staff are presented with an increasing number of patients.
  • The global obesity phenomenon is another result of our changing lifestyle that quite literally puts a heavy burden on hospitals and the healthcare sector. 

Your challenge is our challenge

These trends present both a challenge and an opportunity to manufacturers of hospital and healthcare equipment. Applications designed to make life easier and less stressful for carers will gain the competitive edge in the future. The same is true if they help make the patient more comfortable and less dependent on nurses and other care staff. 

At LINAK, our dedicated segment MEDLINE® & CARELINE® keeps a close eye on what the care sector needs. Advanced electric linear actuator systems can improve a wide range of hospital and healthcare equipment to meet future challenges.
