Recommendations in use
The height adjustable shower bed helps the caretaker to obtain the most optimal working
Height adjustment allows you to customize the working height to the individual carer, and
can also save unnecessary lifting, when transferring from e.g. wheelchair.
To ensure optimum utilization of the shower bed features and avoid accidents, it is important
to observe some basics safety procedures
•NEVER leave a person on the shower bed unattended - not even for a very short period.
•The shower bed must be operated only by adults.
•Pay particular attention to other people in the room, when using the shower bed. Make sure
that no children are playing under or with the shower bed.
•Keep the hand control out of the reach of children. Make sure that they cannot operate the
shower bed unattended. A bracket for wall mounting is included with delivery.
•Make sure that there is free space above and below the shower bed to allow height
adjustment. The shower bed is up foldable, but please be aware of obstacles above, below
and around the shower bed to prevent risk of trapping.
•If the control switch has been damaged or stopped working, it has to be replaced
immediately. The up and down buttons are “push and hold”. The motor stops when the
button is being released. This is a very important safety element.
•If two shower beds are mounted next to each other, we recommend to mount a side cover
between, to avoid the risk of trapping.
•Constantly be aware of objects under the shower bed.
The Shower & Changing Bed is maintenance free. For safety reasons it is recommendable
to check all mounting screws and moving parts to be sure all is tightened ok, and that all
attachment to the wall is in correct and safe condition. It is recommended the table is
serviced on an annual basis as recommended by PUWER regulations. This table does not
come under LOLER requirements as it is purely for height adjustment.
