Actuator systems for patient lifts

There are two clear trends. The future is set to be more challenging, with the aging population and more people suffering the effects of obesity, all of whom will require a greater degree of care. The number of regulations regarding healthcare equipment and tools continually increases and become more stringent in respect of product performance. However, everyone is still entitled to proper care. Using LINAK actuators for your patient lift will not only make your lift robust, it will also create smooth movement. It comes with numerous benefits.

  • Improved ergonomics, more comfort and minimal maintenance
  • Standards-compliant products to help your approval process
  • Experienced partner with a global presence

Whether you need a basic lift solution or an advanced system with several intelligent features for your patient lift, LINAK offers a viable concept for your product. Strong lift actuators and solid balance coordination with leg spreaders create smooth movement. Value-adding features such as SDT (Service Data Tool) help make daily care more cost-efficient as it can reduce the downtime on lifts.

Improve ergonomics and minimise maintenance
Striving to eliminate hazardous lifts is a key focus area for everyone working in the care sector. At LINAK, all actuator products are thoroughly tested as a system. This is done to ensure your patient lift will perform safely throughout its service life. Our First Failure Safe solutions help ensure that your patient lift works in a safe way. Service Data Tool will help you read out system status data to align with statutory scheduled maintenance. All for the comfort of residents as well as carers.

Satisfy standards with compliant systems
Regulations to ensure patient safety as well as staff are being continually sharpened. Equipment such as patient lifts have to obtain certain certifications and approvals. LINAK takes safe patient handling seriously. LINAK actuator systems are tested and certified to be compliant with international medical standards – IEC 60601-1: 2005 3rd edition, ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1:2005 3rd edition and CAN/CSA-22.2 No. 60601-1:2008. This aims to prepare your patient lift for easy compliance with the requirements of EN10535 for patient lifts.

Rely on 30 years of experience globally
LINAK not only has an extensive product portfolio. Over the past 30+ years, the organisation has grown with numerous sales offices worldwide. This makes LINAK able to support customers almost anywhere – with products, advice and local market insight. Whether you need a basic or an advanced solution, or perhaps a development partner for a new project, LINAK can fit the bill.
