The unit is lighter and more compact than motorized systems, and it includes Philips' Eleva user interface with presets and customized user profiles.

The two units were developed and are being manufactured at the Philips Healthcare Innovation Centre (HIC) at Chakan industrial area, near Pune, according to an article in, an Indian business website.
