Patient Handling

Quiet, Vibration-free, Ultra-dependable

Nook’s quiet, vibration-free, ultra-dependable ball screw and linear actuator products enable safe, easy, and precise equipment adjustment to accommodate the individual needs of patients. This includes vertical, horizontal, back and forth motions. These proven medical solutions deliver positioning accuracy and high load capability which are key factors for applications such as surgical and MRI machine tables. Applications such as patient lifts, dental chairs, and patient transfer devices demand smooth, quiet operation for patient comfort, ergonomics, safety, and ease of use.

Typical Applications

  • Tables
  • Chairs
  • Patient Lifts
  • Ambulance Transfer Devices
  • Stair Lifts, Bed Lifts, Bath Lifts
  • Patient Furniture
  • Surgical Tables
  • Dental Chairs

Advantages Include

  • Transfer heavier loads (full patient weight) smoothly with minimal torque
  • Less Power consumption with reduced effort on power source (minimize battery drain)
  • Smooth and quiet operation
  • Positive, stepless adjustment with precision ball screws
  • Predictable and tightly controlled adjustment without sudden movements (Very Safe)
