Systems for nursing home beds

LINAK actuator system solutions ensure smooth adjustment of height, backrests and footrests, and integrate value-adding features to improve safety and efficiency. 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 – from Basic to Advanced solutions.

Actuator systems for nursing home beds

Take a control box, connect it to one or more tried and tested actuators/columns and grab an intuitive hand control. Then you have a system. Add intelligence with some value-adding features and you have an advanced system.

For three decades, LINAK has been the innovative frontrunner in the nursing home sector – delivering system solutions that satisfy the needs of our customers.

A common system for homecare beds

Naturally, specifications depend on individual requirements. Focus can be on power, speed, noise, number of channels (actuators), or number of accessories. By default, LINAK operates with three different setups for nursing home beds: Basic, Medium and Advanced.

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

Basic:
Control box: CA40
Actuators: 3x LA40
Control: HB80 (with lock)

Medium:
Control box: CO41
Actuators: 3x LA40
Control: ACOM

Advanced:
Control box: CO61
Actuators: 4x LA40
Control: FPP (flexible patient panel)
Features: ACO (Intelligent Attendant Control), UBL (Under Bed Light), EBC (Electric Brake Control), OOB (Out Of Bed detector), WET (wet-bed sensor), and battery backup.

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 residents are also key to better welfare. LINAK systems are based on those requirements.

CA40 and CO61 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 international medical standards. Finally, LINAK offers solutions that are IPX6-approved and washable. 

The value-adding features are all optional. They help improve safety for nursing home staff and residents, and aim to increase efficiency and optimise the time staff spend with residents. 

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