The Healthcare Challenge

LINAK electric linear actuator systems have to be capable of taking on a future where challenges are abundant. Obesity, more senior citizens, more diabetics, and more people with dementia.

The hospital and healthcare sector will be challenged by three major trends in the future.
  • The aging population will increase the level of care required by patients, impacting hospitals, nursing homes and home care.
  • Lifestyle diseases are an increasing problem in many countries. As global economies improve, ironically the rate of critical and chronic lifestyle diseases increases. As a result, the hospital and healthcare sector in general is challenged when caring for the increasing number of patients.
  • The worldwide obesity phenomenon is another result of our changing lifestyle that quite literally puts a heavy burden on the hospital and healthcare sector. 

Your challenge is our challenge

These trends present both a challenge and an opportunity to manufacturers of hospital and healthcare equipment. Applications designed to make life easier and less stressful for carers will gain the competitive edge in the future. The same is true if it helps make the patient more comfortable and less dependent on nurses and other care personnel.
