The medical sector can be characterised by both the essential criteria of exceptional quality alongside the importance of safety. Therefore, any products or solutions provided to this industry need to be able to cope with the wear and tear you would expect, and meet the exacting standards required.

In our experience, many applications across a variety of medical environments require a controlled motion for the safety of both patients and staff.

At Camloc Motion Control, our range of products are tailored to suit a variety of applications – whether it’s the control of a ward bed, or the range of movement of a monitor or lighting arm – to provide the safe and secure movement required every time. The medical sector doesn’t compromise on its standards, and neither do we.

Working closely with our customers – from initial discussion through to the final installation – our sales team and technical engineers provide unique, innovative products, total accuracy, expert technical advice and dependability while meeting the specific needs of our customers across the world.

Where gas springs can be found within the medical sector

From hospital beds and treatment chairs to hydraulic height adjustment solutions, our bespoke designs feature in all kinds of medical sector equipment.

The list where hydraulic dampers can be used goes on, but here are a few of the key specific applications:

  • CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) bed dampers
  • Gas struts for assisting bed rise actuators
  • Side rail dampers
  • Patient handling equipment

If you have a particular project in mind, get in touch with us. Our bespoke offering is ideal for tailor-made motion control solutions that meet the end-user’s exact requirements.

Our engineering support begins at concept design, continuing through to project completion. From designing the original concept to the final tests, our team of talented engineers enjoy nothing more than working out a complex problem for our customers.

How our products work in the medical sector

Our range of products work across a variety of applications within the operating theatre environment – from adjusting the position of an operating room table, to motion and positional control on lighting or monitor arms. Whatever the movement required, our range of dampers and gas struts offer the perfect solution.

From opticians to physiotherapy, our range of products suit a variety of applications across general healthcare – from dampers for back and leg rest adjustment on chairs and treatment couches, to gas springs to control the motion of a monitor or lighting arm.

Many applications in a hospital ward environment require a controlled motion for the safety of both the patient and medical staff. Our range of products are tailored to suit a variety of applications – whether it’s the adjustment of a ward bed, or the movement of an overbed table.

Our dampers provide smooth control and operation of the descent of the back rest – making treatment easier and providing more comfort for the patient. We also offer a compact manual hydraulic height adjustment system, allowing easy manoeuvrability of a bed into the required position for both the user/carer and patient.

Our gas springs provide easy-to-operate, assisted opening, and holding functionality and closing for patient-handling equipment. Our manually-operated gas springs allow for the controlled tilt of a seat – enabling it to be stopped in any required position. The control of the tilt comes when the gas spring is teamed with our hydraulic release lever system – minimising effort and maximising control for the carer, while safely attaining the correct position for the patient.
