Ergo Motion Accessories
When you think of ergonomic applications, most likely you will think of a height adjustable desk or workstation found in an office or workshop area. While TiMOTION does offer height adjustable columns and electric frame kit solutions, we also have accessories that can substitute some of the heftier models if you are looking to integrate your own metal extrusions in the finished project.
The TBS1, TBS2, TBS3, and TBS4 Series are deconstructed spindle components that were especially designed to work with TiMOTION’s TGM Series. Some users may purchase a variation of spindles and gear motors from TiMOTION to pair with their own column extrusions to create two, three, four, or six leg adjustable desk systems. The flexibility of pairing a spindle with a gear motor outside of TiMOTION’s lifting column product line allows for a new level of customization.
If you desire a charging port that will support wireless charging, consider our TWC Series. This sleek accessory can be installed on the table top, and works effectively to charge your mobile device.

You will often see TiMOTION’s home furniture accessories already integrated into your recliner or adjustable bed. These accessories come in many forms, but are all fun options to add to your application for a more efficient user experience.
The TBC Series is a battery charger that is commonly used in home furniture applications to recharge the actuator’s back up power battery without the need of a control box. This allows your armchair or bed to fully charge the backup battery that will power your application even during loss of power.

The TRF and TRF2 accessories are the receivers for wireless handsets. While these can be used by medical professionals in hospital bed applications for use with wireless controls, the TRF2 can be used with Bluetooth capabilities so you can connect your home furniture with a tablet or smart phone that has control capabilities.
If you invest in the TVL3 television lift, the TSS safety strip accessory is crucial to ensure proper operation of the lift at all times. The safety strip limits the movement of the actuator when it is bumped, so as to protect the user while operating the lift.

Care Motion Accessories

The TEB Series is an emergency button that is crucial for medical beds, patient hoists, and other healthcare furniture where a patient is being handled. If a situation occurs in which the motion of a medical application must be immediately halted, this button accessory is crucial to ensure the medical professional has control of the situation.
Similarly, the TEB2 Series acts as an external switch for emergency situations in which the power needs to be cut off immediately.
The TLB Series is also used for complete control of the actuator system. This lock box is used in medical environments so that both the actuator and the handset can be locked when activated. This is the perfect way to ensure protection for the patient, and complete control for the nurse or attendant’s handset even when it is not under supervision.
The TNC Series is an emergency message receiver that caretakers will appreciate for home care bed applications. It features three indicator lights that alert the user for disconnection issues, patient assistance alarms and low battery indication. It can also be integrated with hand controls and used for the nurse calling system in hospitals as well.
Additionally, there are some practical accessories for your medical actuator systems that ensure total safety and ease of use for both the patient and the caregiver.
The TBL Series is commonly seen in medical beds, at the bottom of the bed so that nurses and other medical staff are able to able to see to avoid collisions when moving the patient.
The TCR Series is a cable reel that will assist your application’s cable management in regards to your control box’s AC cable. When it comes to medical applications, cable management is crucial to keep cables properly organized and out of the way to prevent a loss of power or system malfunctions due to cable disconnection or entanglement.
The TYC and TYC2 Series are “Y” cables that allow multiple hand controls or motors to be connected to one actuation system. These are essential when an application’s design requires two handsets for operation, such as a medical bed that requires a patient hand control and a nurse’s panel. Similarly, the TJB2 Series, also known a junction box, allows multiple actuators and handsets to work together in the same application seamlessly.
