System solution for shower chairs

The need for multi-function shower chairs designed to provide support in the daily shower and hygiene situations is increasing. Lack of resources and the growing population of elderly and disabled people, along with the desire for personal dignity are today’s focus points in healthcare.

For caregivers, the wide range of movement options help during the daily work routines and improve efficiency. The powerful movement options affect ergonomics for the caregiver positively by managing heavy and uneven lifting situations.

Using electric actuator solutions provides several benefits such as:

  • Powerful height-adjustable shower chairs
  • Improved ergonomics
  • Increased quality of life for user

The shortage in the healthcare workforce is a known fact in hospitals, care homes and other healthcare institutions. This calls for tools and equipment to support and optimise the daily working routines. Equipment and applications to fulfil multiple requirements – improved ergonomics and efficiency, while keeping patient dignity.

Using electric movement in shower chairs for height adjustment, lateral trunk or foot-arm modification eases the daily working routines of caregivers by focusing on ergonomics and eliminating heavy lifting. Movement supported by electric LINAK® actuators contributes to job satisfaction.


Benefits from powerful system solutions

The broad LINAK product portfolio provides high design flexibility. Whenever the system needs to support a few simple or more complex movements, the product compatibility ensures full satisfaction and benefits in all situations. LINAK strives to meet the requirements for shower chairs with system solutions, whether simple or advanced solutions are required.



Adjustable chairs are essential to caregivers, as they must otherwise strain themselves when assisting the service user in their daily work. Height-adjustable and lateral trunk support in chairs is essential to caregiver ergonomics. Lack of resources and the long-term perspective of an increasing number of elderly people make it even more important to provide the right equipment and ensure good ergonomics during daily work routines.


Quality of life

Using LINAK products in shower chairs will increase both privacy and safety by allowing the user to enjoy greater independence and dignity or even make it possible to shower without caregiver assistance in the bathroom.

LINAK system solutions provide optimum movement in shower chairs.

All types of shower chairs must allow for user comfort and safety, while also ensuring ideal ergonomic working conditions for caregivers.

Shower chairs incorporate many adjustment options as they need to be highly adaptable to user requirements.

With LINAK, the application design becomes easier.
