Actuator systems for patient lifts

The future of healthcare will face two major challenges – the world population is getting older and more people will suffer the effects of obesity. A higher degree of care is required and regulations regarding healthcare equipment are continually increased, specifying product safety and performance. Yet, patients are still entitled to proper care at the hospital. Using LINAK electric actuators for your patient lift or sit-to-stand lift, will give you powerful lift, smooth movement, and numerous other benefits.

  • Safety-improving features and low maintenance
  • Standards-compliant products to help your approval process
  • Experienced partner with a global presence

Whether you need a standard lift solution or an advanced system with several intelligent features for your patient lift, LINAK offers a tried and tested concept. Powerful actuators and solid balance coordination with leg-spreaders create smooth movement. Value-adding features like for instance Service Data Tool (SDT) ultimately help make hospitalisation more cost-efficient as it can help reduce application downtime.

Add safety features and minimise maintenance
Striving to eliminate hazards by using hospital equipment is a key focus area for everyone working in the care sector, LINAK included. Repetitive testing of all systems is mandatory at LINAK. We do this to ensure durable products with flawless performance throughout a long service life. The need for maintenance is minimised, and features such as the SDT help read out system status data to align with statutory scheduled service. Our First Failure Safe solutions help ensure that your patient lift works in a safe way.

Live up to medical standards with compliant systems
Regulations to ensure safety for both patients and hospital staff are being continually sharpened. Equipment such as patient lifts must obtain certain certifications and approvals, and LINAK takes these safety requirements seriously.  Our actuator systems are tested and certified to meet international medical standards (e.g. 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 make your patient lift prepared for easy compliance with norm requirements listed in standard EN10535.

Trust a global partner with decades of experience
LINAK is much more than a catalogue full of quality products manufactured in a world-class automated production. Over the past 30+ years, the organisation has grown with multiple sales offices worldwide. This makes us able to support customers almost everywhere – with products, advice, and local market insights.

LINAK actuator systems create smooth lift and movement in patient lifts and help improve safety and ergonomics for patients and staff. Specifications depend on individual needs and requirements. Focus can be on power, speed, noise, or number of channels (actuators). By default, LINAK operates with three different setups for patient lifts, in which you can create several different solutions.
