Actuators for Medical Applications
As the global population ages, the amount of people suffering from health issues is increasing. This increases the pressure on hospitals and nursing homes around the world. To maintain high quality and efficiency, there is a need for matching equipment. In the medical bed industry we offer low-noise lifting, smooth operation for personnel and optimal comfort for patients.
Due to advancements in technology, powered stretchers help to reduce musculoskeletal injuries among paramedics and healthcare professionals. These are underlined by changes in regulations on the need for better ergonomics. Power-Packer actuators offer extreme power density, controllable velocity, smooth operation and emergency operation.
Today’s medical stretchers serve a vital purpose in the field of healthcare: to safely and securely convey injured patients through hospitals, private practices and clinics. Stretchers are also used to transport the critically injured into emergency rooms. Power-Packer actuators offer high load forces, stability while moving the patient, enhanced performance and operating comfort.
As surgery and other medical procedures become more sophisticated, there is a gradual shift from basic operating tables to more sophisticated tables. Healthcare professionals need their equipment to be more precise, faster, stronger and easier to control. Our actuators offer Improved ergonomics, enhanced performance, high load forces and increased efficiency.
Imaging equipment in modern hospitals is getting more advanced, with a rise in minimally invasive surgical procedures. For the healthcare professionals that handle these applications, powerful and durable equipment is needed to improve the level of efficiency and quality of treatment. Power-Packer offer accurate positioning.
Globally, hospitals are looking for ways to improve the working environment for medical personnel, through ergonomically designed treatment tables that are safe, flexible and reliable. As chronical diseases increase and with a rise of geriatric population, the best comfort for patients and ergonomics for healthcare professionals are necessary.
Worldwide, life-style diseases are putting more pressure on hospitals. Prevalence in obesity is resulting in an increased number of patients that require treatment. Hospital chairs are used for many purposes, varying from blood donation, one-day surgery recovery as well as child birth. Power-Packer actuators increase comfort for patients and improve ergonomics for staff.
There is an increasing demand for automation of medical mobility aids and mortuary equipment. Growing global population, increasing amount of people with obesity and a growing amount of people with disabilities, lead to a need for better performing medical mobility aids, such as patient lifts, lifting floors, hoists, ceiling hoists and stair crawlers. Power-Packer solutions are compact and reliable.
Our Product Portfolio
The smart, intuitive design of the MK5 combines a pump, cylinder, valves and reservoir into one compact, maintenance-free unit, giving you years of trouble-free operation and trusted performance. Every MK5 hydraulic actuator features an installed pressure relief and flow control valve to ensure smooth descent independent of patient weight.
The Stretcher Actuator is a reliable self-contained hydraulic actuator designed for use in stretchers and (emergency) trolleys and other applications for professional care and reliable patient handling. It features a built-in guidance to handle high-side loads. This means that no additional actuation or support mechanism is needed in the stretcher or gurney’s design. This advantage lowers your overall manufacturing costs. To provide optimal functionality, the pump, cylinder, valves and reservoir are combined into one compact, maintenance-free unit. The Stretcher Actuator is easy to install and is built for longest life.
The EDU is an electro-hydraulic system with a powerful brushless motor, specially developed for the high-end medical market. With this high power-dense system, it is possible to vary load and velocity in either direction, independently of each other.
Initially designed for the use in ambulance stretchers with the combination of high speed and high forces, this system can be used in every application that requires precise adjustment at variable loads and/or velocities.
The Quattro is an electro-hydraulic actuator that gives you the flexibility to position a patient just as needed to ensure the best outcome.
This state-of-the-art system allows you to vary load and velocity in either direction, independently of each other. Designed for accurate positioning imaging equipment, scanner tables, operating tables and other devices, the Quattro is also the ideal choice for any application that demands extreme precision.
The Manual Multi Cylinder (MMC) is a reliable hydraulic system to operate multiple movements within your application. This system enables the user, by means of a selector, to select which cylinder to operate. The selector is integrated in the pump which results in less build-in space and less weight. All available single acting and double acting cylinders can be combined, this gives you the flexibility to create the most suitable system for your application.
The Electro-Hydraulic MMC is a reliable system designed to operate multiple movements in the most innovative medical applications. It combines the need of an electro-hydraulic and manual-hydraulic system, with up to 4 manual back up functions if power supply fails.
The system enables the user, by means of a selector operated by a handset, to select which cylinder to operate. The selector is integrated in the pump which results in less build-in space and less weight. All available double acting cylinders can be combined, this gives you the flexibility to create the most suitable system for your application.
