    There are quite a few of these drains now available in the U.S. market. You may need to use some different search terminologies to find all the different manufacturers.

    One result from Google is the FreeStyle Linear Drain:

    You want to install the drain about a half inch below the level of the floor, then from about 6 inches outside the shower curtain slope to it. May be easiest if the drain is along one wall only. Still need to have a trap in the line out, as close to the trough as possible.
