Pendant Operation
A safety feature of this product includes protection against overheating caused by
excessive or extended periods of operation. Depending on the duration, this
includes multiple or repeated adjustments or the use of multiple functions at one
time. To assure trouble free operation, ALWAYS allow a slight pause between
multiple adjustments and avoid pressing more than one function button at a time. If
thermal protection activation should occur, the bed will not respond to pendant
commands. Given this situation, release the pendant button and allow the bed unit
to sit for several minutes. This will allow the protection function time to reset and
restore bed function. Depending on the severity of the initial overheating, this could
take up to 30 minutes.

SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
WARNING
SECTION 1 - GENERAL GUIDELINES contains important information for the safe
operation and use of this product. DO NOT use this product or any available
optional equipment without first completely reading and understanding these
instructions and any additional instructional material such as Owner’s Manuals,
Service Manuals or Instruction Sheets supplied with this product or optional
equipment. If you are unable to understand the Warnings, Cautions or Instructions,
contact a healthcare professional, dealer or technical personnel before attempting
to use this equipment - otherwise, injury or damage may occur.
Operating Information
DO NOT use near explosive gases. Keep the product a minimum of 12ʺ away from any direct heat source.
Close supervision is necessary when this product is used by or near children or people with disabilities.
Check all parts for shipping damage and test before using. In case of damage, DO NOT use. Contact a qualified technician for further instruction.
After any adjustments, repair or service and before use, make sure all attaching hardware is tightened securely.
DO NOT let any individual underneath the bed or in between the raised bed frame components at anytime.
When bed is not to be used for an extended period, unplug electric bed from the wall outlet. If a liquid is spilled in or around the electric bed, unplug the electric bed before cleaning. Clean up the spill and allow the electric bed or the area around the electric bed to dry thoroughly before using the electric controls again.
The manual/electric bed is NOT designed to be used as a patient transport. When transporting a patient, use an approved patient transport. Otherwise, injury or damage may result.
Body weight should be evenly distributed over the surface of the bed. DO NOT lay, sit or lean in such a way that your entire body weight is placed only on raised head or foot sections of the bed. This includes when assisting the user in repositioning or transferring in or out of bed.
When operating/moving manual/electric beds, always ensure that the individual utilizing the bed is positioned properly within the confines of the bed. DO NOT let any extremities protrude over the side or between the bed rails when performing these functions.
IVC™Bed Series
10
Part No 1114836
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
After the manual/electric bed has been assembled, always test to make sure that all sections of the manual/electric bed are properly and securely in place before using.
Make sure head and foot springs/sections are connected securely to the universal bed ends before use.
If the unit is not working properly, call a qualified technician to examine the unit and repair it.
Keep all moving parts, including the main frame, mattress deck (head and foot springs/sections) and all drive shafts, free of obstruction (i.e. blankets/sheets, heating blankets/pads, tubing, wiring, etc. and other types of products using electric cords which may get tangled around the bed, side rails or legs) during operation of the manual/electric bed. The manual/electric bed is equipped with locking casters. When transferring into or out of the manual/electric bed, always lock the locking caster(s). Inspect the wheel locks for correct locking action before actual use. Even with casters properly locked, some flooring surfaces such as tile or wood, will allow the bed to move under some conditions. Use on surfaces such as these must be evaluated by the care provider.
ALWAYS remove manual crank(s) before performing electronic functions. Otherwise, the crank(s) will turn when the motor is on and could cause personal injury or damage to the bed.
ENTRAPMENT WARNING
Proper patient assessment and monitoring, and proper maintenance and use of
equipment is required to reduce the risk of entrapment. Variations in bed rail
dimensions, and mattress thickness, size or density could increase the risk of
entrapment. Visit the FDA website at http://www.fda.gov to learn about the risks of
entrapment. Review “A Guide to Bed Safety”, published by the Hospital Bed Safety
Workgroup, located at www.invacare.com. Use the link located under each bed rail
product entry to access this bed safety guide.
Refer to the owners manuals for beds and rails for additional product and safety
information.
After any adjustments, repair or service and before use, make sure all attaching
hardware is tightened securely. Assist rails with dimensions different from the
original equipment supplied or specified by the bed manufacturer may not be
interchangeable and may result in entrapment or other injury.
Mattress MUST fit bed frame and assist rails snugly to reduce the risk of entrapment.
Replacement Parts/Accessories
Invacare products are specifically designed and manufactured for use in conjunction with Invacare accessories. Accessories designed by other manufacturers have not been tested by Invacare and are not recommended for use with Invacare products.
Part No 1114836
11
IVC™Bed Series
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
Possible fire hazard when used with oxygen administering equipment other than nasal or masked type.
Use masked or nasal type oxygen administering equipment only in conjunction with the manual/electric bed. The use of any other type of oxygen administering equipment can result in a fire hazard.
When using nasal or masked type oxygen administering equipment, the oxygen or air tubing MUST be routed and secured properly to ensure that the tubing does not become entangled and/or severed during normal operation of manual/electric bed.
ALWAYS test to make sure that the side rails are properly and securely in place before using the manual/electric bed.
Invacare recommends that the mattress be centered on the bed frame. Otherwise, individuals may become entangled between the bed rail and the bed frame.
Physically challenged individuals who cannot prevent themselves from rolling/climbing out of the manual/electric bed may require alternative safe means of restraint.
When used with a manual/electrical bed, the bed rails DO NOT fall under any weight limitations. Bed rails can be deformed or broken if excessive side pressure is exerted on the bed rails. These bed rails are used for the purpose of preventing an individual from inadvertently rolling out of bed. The bed rails are NOT intended nor may be used for restraint purposes. If an individual is capable of injuring himself/herself, a physician or a healthcare professional should be consulted for alternative means of safe restraint. Although bed rails are not rated to any specific weight limitation, the bed rails may become deformed or broken if excessive side pressure is exerted on the bed rails. The bed rail is not an assist rail for getting into or out of bed. DO NOT use the bed rails as push handles when moving the bed.
DO NOT use the side rails as push handles for moving the manual/electric bed.
Once patient assessment concludes that the patient’s condition increases the chance of entrapment, the bed MUST be in the flat position when left unattended.
After raising/lowering the head/foot end of the manual/electric bed, check the distance between the bottom of the bed rail and the mattress. If there is excessive distance between the bottom of the bed rail and the mattress in which individuals may become entangled, adjust the height of the bed rail (if applicable), or provide alternative means of patient protection.
Trapeze units must be positioned on a universal bed end as near as possible to the center point of the bed end. The trapeze is to be used only in assisting the patient in repositioning or transferring in or out of the manual/electric bed.
Traction units must be securely fastened to universal bed ends of the manual/electric bed. These units are to be used only for immobilizing a patient in various traction setups or assisting the patient in repositioning or transferring in or out of the manual/electric bed.
NEVER allow patients to use trapeze or traction units as a total individual weight support.
IVC™Bed Series
12
Part No 1114836
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
Trapeze units are to be used only for immobilizing a patient in various traction setups or assisting the patient in repositioning or transferring into or out of bed.
Replacement mattresses and bed side rails with dimensions different than the original equipment supplied or specified by the bed frame manufacturer are not interchangeable. Variations in bed side rail design, width and thickness or firmness of the mattress could cause/contribute to entrapment. Use only authorized Invacare replacement parts and/or accessories otherwise the warranty is void. Invacare will not be responsible for any damage or injury that may result.
Electrical
DANGER
When using an extension cord, use only a three wire extension cord having at least
16 AWG (American Wire Gauge) wire and the same or higher electrical rating as
the device being connected. Use of improper extension cord could result in a risk of
fire and electric shock. Three prong to two prong adapters should not be used. Use
of three prong adapters can result in improper grounding and present a shock
hazard to the user.
NEVER operate if the unit has a damaged cord or plug. If it is not working properly, call a qualified technician for examination and repair.
Keep all electrical cords away from heated or hot surfaces.
Ensure all cables and cords are routed such that they will not become entangled or pinched. Otherwise damage or injury may result.
DO NOT unplug power cord from junction box.
The pendant and power cords must be routed and secured properly to ensure that the cords DO NOT become entangled, pinched and/or severed during operation of the electric bed.
NEVER operate the unit if these cords are damaged. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only. Grounding reliability depends upon a properly grounded wall outlet.
Repair or Service Information
DO NOT open assemblies such as the motors, pendant, junction boxes or gear boxes. No user serviceable parts are inside. Only qualified technicians are permitted to repair these parts. If unqualified individuals perform any work on these beds, the warranty is void.
Unplug the power cord from its power source before performing any maintenance on the manual/electric bed. DO NOT unplug the power cord from the junction box. Damage to cord will result.
The junction box is mounted to the foot motor with an actuator clip‐lock. If replacing the junction box, remove the actuator clip‐lock and slide the junction box away from the foot motor until it is free. Disconnect all cable connections.
Part No 1114836
13
IVC™Bed Series
SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES
Before connecting/disconnecting the connections at the junction box, make sure the cable lock is removed by lightly depressing on the end tabs and lifting. After connectors are plugged in, route all cables into the cable lock slots and snap the cable lock in place. When installing any connectors into the junction box, be sure the cable lock is secure after installation ‐ otherwise, injury or damage may occur.
DO NOT force the connector into the junction box, otherwise ‐ injury or damage may occur.
Inspect the covering of the bed’s control panel and the patient control panel to assure that the covering is not cracked or damaged.
Servicing of Double-Insulated Products
In a double‐insulated product, two systems of insulation are provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is provided on a double‐insulated product, nor is a means for grounding to be added to the product. Servicing a double‐insulated product requires extreme care and knowledge of the system, and is to be done only by qualified service personnel. Replacement parts for a double‐insulated product must be identical to the parts they replace. A double‐insulated product is marked with the words ʺDOUBLE INSULATIONʺ or ʺDOUBLE INSULATEDʺ. The symbol ( ) is also able to be marked on the product.
Radio Frequency Interference
Electronic equipment may be influenced by Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). Caution should be exercised with regard to the use of portable communications equipment in the area around such equipment. If RFI causes erratic behavior, unplug the electric bed IMMEDIATELY. Leave unplugged while transmission is in progress.
Weight Limitations
The total weight limit of the Invacare 36‐inch (91.4 cm) wide Manual/Electric bed (including accessories, mattress, occupant and any other person/object positioned on the bed) is 450 pounds (204 kg.); 350 pounds (158 kg) patient weight.
DO NOT permit more than one person on/in the manual/electric bed at any time.
Body weight should be evenly distributed over the surface of the manual/electric bed. DO NOT lay, sit or lean in such a way that your entire body weight is placed only on raised head or foot sections of the bed. This includes when repositioning or transferring in or out of bed.
