Medical furniture products

Medical furniture - hidden behind it, for example, the patient and treatment chair, the nursing or hospital bed, operating tables and lamps, or support and support arm systems - places the highest demands on all moving components. Our bearing technology for flexible adjustments as well as energy chain systems for safe cable guidance are specially designed for medical facilities.
They are resistant to chemicals as well as lubrication-free and maintenance-free and therefore offer maximum availability in daily use. While high loads such as shocks must be safely absorbed in care, intensive care requires particularly reliable systems with easy and precise adjustability.
