(American Wire Gauge) wire and the same or higher electrical rating as the device being connected.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this furnishing has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit
in a polarized outlet only one way.
- If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the
proper outlet.
- DO NOT change the plug in any way

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
To avoid injury or damage from emergency crank when motor is on:
- ALWAYS remove emergency crank(s) before performing electronic functions.

3 SAFETY
WARNING
Risk of Injury or Damage
To avoid bed collapse and resulting injury or damage:
- NEVER permit more than one person on the manual/electric bed at any time.
- Evenly distribute body weight 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 into or out of bed.
- DO NOT push on raised head or foot sections of the bed.
- After this bed has been assembled, ALWAYS test to make sure that all sections of the bed are properly and securely in
place before using.
To avoid injury or damage from entanglement with bed components or bed collapse:
- Keep all moving parts, including the main frame, mattress deck, and all drive shafts, free of obstruction (i.e. blankets/sheets,
tubing, wiring, cords, etc) during operation of the bed.

Pendent Operation
WARNING
Risk of Injury or Damage
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 pendent commands. Given this situation,
release the pendent 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.

Repair or Service Information
WARNING
Risk of Injury or Damage
To avoid injury or damage:
DO NOT open assemblies such as the motors, pendent, power supply 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.
Make sure connector locking caps are properly positioned and locked to the bus cable. Otherwise, spilled liquid may get
into the electrical connection causing malfunctions to the electrical system.
DO NOT force the connector together, otherwise - injury or damage may occur.
Inspect the covering of the bed’s power supply and the patient pendent to assure that the covering is not cracked or
damaged.
After any adjustments, repair or service and before use, make sure all attaching hardware is tightened securely. Unsecured
parts could vibrate loose causing bed components to disengage causing injury and/or damage to the bed.
Replacement Parts/Accessories
DANGER
Risk of Injury or Damage
To avoid electrical shock, product damage and personal injury:
- Use masked or nasal type oxygen administering equipment only in conjunction with the electric bed. The use of
ANYother type of oxygen administering equipment can result in a fire hazard.
- Equipment not suitable for use in the presence of flammable mixtures.

WARNING
Risk of Injury or Damage
ALWAYS test to make sure that the bed rails are properly and securely in place before using the bed.
DO NOT use the bed rails as push handles for moving the bed.
WARNING
Risk of Injury or Damage
- When used with an Invacare G5510 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. The bed rail is not an assist rail for getting into or
out of bed. 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.
- 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 the 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 bed may require
alternative safe means of restraint.
- 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. The bed should be left in its lowest position when patient is left unattended in order
to reduce the risk of injury due to falls while getting into or out of bed, or while lying on the bed.
- Trapeze units MUST be positioned on a 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 into or out of the bed.
- NEVER allow patients to use trapeze or traction units as a total individual weight support.
