The future of healthcare
The healthcare sector is facing a number of challenges in the future, such as ageing population and obesity. The demographic development will result in more elderly people in need of care and, at the same time, fewer people to do the caring. Society in general also faces a growing obesity challenge which will affect the safe working load of healthcare applications.

With an increased number of persons to care for and less warm hands to do the caring as well as reduced healthcare expenditure per person, these trends present new challenges to manufacturers of hospital and healthcare equipment.

This calls for applications that are optimised in regards to efficiency, reliability and power, also making life easier and less stressful for all healthcare staff. LA40 will add value to applications and help manufacturers of healthcare equipment gain a competitive edge on the market.
