FIRGELLI® Healthcare Articles

These days, linear actuators are found in almost every corner of the healthcare industry. They can be seen powering hospital beds and wheelchairs as well as equipment that is used for scanning or examining patients with a stethoscope; they even help people out who require assistance getting dressed by lifting their clothing!

Here is a collection of Blog posts related to the Healthcare sector. The healthcare industry is one that has seen significant change over recent years as new technology and equipment become available for both patients, caregivers (such as nurses), medical professionals like doctors or technicians. This can include things like IoT devices which are used to help people live their lives with greater independence at home; AR/VR glasses that provide immersive graphics during surgery—perfect when you need an extra pair of eyes on your patient!

The benefits don't stop there either: we also have remote monitoring systems so no matter where they're located around the world - someone will always be able to get access.
