About The Vitalgo Total-Lift Bed™
The Total-Lift Bed™ sets new standards in patient and caregiver safety, treatment and comfort.
The Total Lift Bed™ is a Bed and so much more providing many advantages over conventional beds.
The revolutionary design allows the bed to raise the user to a fully standing position and all positions in between including chair positions.
Among all its clinical obvious benefits, the Total Lift Bed™ is the best instrument for Early Mobility, safe patient handling and safe lifting.
The Total Lift bed™ is ideal for use in any kind of Medical facility and and is especially for –
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Acute Care.
Burn Units.
Orthopedic patient population.
Early Mobility
Progressive Mobility.
Safe patient Handling and Safe Lifting.
Rehabilitation
Neurologic patient population.
Fall Prevention
With just a press of a button you can bring the patient to any position desired.
The Patented technology of the total Lift Bed™, moves the Foot Lifter ™ towards the feet of the patient /
user, and only when making contact will start the tilting function, thus preventing any danger of sliding in
bed. While the bed tilts, when in proper angle the Foot Lifter ™ will gradually move down so when the bed
is in fully standing position the Foot Lifter will be parallel to floor allowing to simply walk out of bed, with or
without assistance.
The patient can be just tilted, for treatment, in any desired angle, for as long as needed. The Total Lift
Bed™ has all possible bed and chair positions.
The Total Lift Bed™ can come with powered air mattress and high quality non powered mattress.
WEIGHT BEARING CONTROL – The Total Lift Bed is the only real true “Weight Bearing control device” ,knowing
the exact amount of pressure transfer to the feet and through body of the patient / user, which can be increased
or decreased by changing the beds angle.
The Total Lift Bed™ has all safety features and is FDA and CE registered conforming with the EN/ IEC 60601-252 and the Assessment Guidance to Reduce Entrapment.
UNPARALLELED SAFETY
Safety is the top priority of all Vitalgo products. The Total-Lift Bed™ incorporates numerous safety features
and mechanisms and meets or exceeds the highest standards for medical electric beds.
The Total Lift Bed is FDA and CE Registered. The Total Lift Bed has been tested and conformed with IEC
60601-1:2005 / EN60601-1:2006 3rd Ed. and 60-601-2-52:2009 (First Edition).
The integrated safety features include:
• Exclusive self-adjusting Foot-Lifter™ – Automatically moves up to rest under the user’s feet prior to the
bed tilting into an upright position, preventing the user from sliding down the bed. Embedded microswitches ensure the user is properly positioned and that when the bed is in an upright position, the user’s
feet are at ground level.
• Safety Rails (optional) – Can be added to the upper and lower part of the bed, on one or both sides. Vitalgo
has adopted all FDA clinical guidance to reduce Entrapment.
• Electronic braking – Casters are electronically lowered to allow mobility and raised to secure stability; they
are automatically raised before the bed can be tilted or the sitting/reclining positioning adjusted. The casters have Total Lock function and one directional lock for easy transportation of bed.

CLEARING ERRORS
(Can be done by Care Giver)
The Total Lift Bed is operated with an advanced controller system.
It may happen that the controller will lose position of actuator and because of that, in order to avoid mechanical breakage, it will freeze.
In order to clear such error button 3+4 should be pressed together.
A short series of beeps will be heard. Wait until beeping stops. Try to operate bed.
If bed does not operate make full initialization as described below.
In the event the “Clearing Error” does not help and the bed Backrest is up or the bed is in Tilt position, a Manuel operation may be performed in order to bring the Bed to a Flat (CPR) position (See below).
EMERGENCY MANUAL MODE (In case the Bed “Freezes”) To manually lower the bed:
In the event that the Bed does not move at all when pressing the handset, or the side-rail LED lights are blinking, or the bed is beeping and not moving. First ensure that the bed is powered (check green signal on power
supply). If power is on, this means that means that the bed is in Freeze mode. If this occurs when the bed is
tilted or the head of the bed is elevated, use the Manual Mode to lower to flat position.
Step 1 – Hold buttons 7 + 8 together for 5 seconds. The buzzer will give continues short signals indicating the
Bed is in Manuel Mode.
To tilt down, press 11 (as you would normally) until the bed is flat.
To lower head of bed, press 2 (as you would normally), until the head of the bed is flat.
Once the bed is flat or after 20 seconds without touching buttons 7 & 8, the Bed will exit Manual Mode
WARNING: Any time you have had to use Manual Mode to lower the Total Lift bed, the bed should be inspected
by a qualified technician.

Initialization of the Bed (Only by Technician)
Before first use of the Bed, or in case of a functioning problem, the Bed must be initialized.
To Initialize (When initializing no one should be on the bed!):
Step 1 - Press Buttons (3) & (4) together – Continuous beeps will be heard. Continue pressing until the beeps
stop.
Step 2 – Press Buttons (1) & (2) together continuously. The bed will bring itself to the Initialization position step
by step. Continue pressing until Two beeps are heard. To ensure the Bed has reached its initialization position,
press again and verify the two beeps are heard.
Important remark: In Initialization, the first movement of the bed should be horizontally up. If the bed does not
move to its highest position something is wrong. Check all connections and redo steps 1 and 2. if the bed still
does not work consult with VitalGo’s authorised technician.
At the end of the initialization procedure all motors should be in end of stroke position (in or out).
Step 3 – Bring the Bed to the Sleeping position with Button (11).
Strapping Systems(Optional)
The Strapping System is modular and should be used according to the patient’s condition and instructions
given by the proper authorized clinician.
The configurations described below are VitalGo’s recommendations for ambulatory patient,
with no risk of knee buckling and for Non-Ambulatory patient who can hardly walk and is in danger of getting
his knees buckled.
In any case the user should consult his doctor or the proper medical authority before deciding which strapping
system configuration to use.
In case of hesitation between the systems always use the safer one (non-ambulatory).

Maintenance
WARNING!
All repair and maintenance work should be performed only by a qualified technician. VitalGo will accept
liability for the bed safety and functional efficiency only when:
• Delivery maintenance and repair were carried out by VitalGo’s authorized personal.
• The bed is used in accordance to instructions given in the user’s manual.
The Total-Lift Bed™ uses maintenance-free motors, electric systems and electronics; as such they require very
little maintenance. All moving parts and lifting gear are permanently lubricated during manufacturing.
As these parts do not need to be re-lubricated in normal use, the bed has no lubrication points.
MAINTENANCE CHECKLIST
Vitalgo recommends the following maintenance and cleaning procedures be conducted between users and at
least once every year.
• Inspect all bed components for damage or excessive wear.
• Visually examine all welds for cracks.
• Inspect the head and thigh and leg sections for bending, warping or damage.
• Check drive shaft and drive shaft connections for bending, damage or excessive wear.
• Inspect pull tubes and mounting hardware for bending, damage or excessive wear.
• Inspect all bolts and rivets to ensure that they are securely tightened and functioning properly.
• Check sleep surfaces to ensure all links are intact
• Check casters if they roll properly.
ELECTRICAL INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE
•
Inspect all electrical bed components for damage or excessive wear (i.e. Cracked or broken housings, or worn
components).
• Check pendant, power and motor cords for chafing, cuts or excessive wear.
• Make sure all plugs are fully attached and free of damage.
• Make sure cable lock on junction box is properly positioned and locked
• Check all functions:
A. Ensure head raises and lowers properly.
B. Ensure foot raises and lowers properly.
C. Ensure bed ends raise and lower properly.

RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES MAINTENANCE:
BA20 is the battery module in the CB20 system. The cabinet is ultrasonic welded and easily exchangeable without the use of tools.
Precautions:
Battery running:
• If battery capacity is under 50% a “beep” sound is given for 2 seconds, when a handset key is pressed.
• If the system is activated and the mains plug is pulled out, the system will stop. In the opposite case, if the
system is running using battery power and the mains plug is then plugged in, the system will continue running.
• The charging indicator can blink if the system operates with a high load causing the voltage to drop and
because of this the batteries will start to charge.
• The CB20 with battery back-up only commences battery charging when it is connected to the mains.
• A control box with battery should be charged at least every six months. However the longest life is obtained
when the battery is fully charged.
• A battery must be charged for at least 12 hours before use

Total Lift Bed – Weight Bearing Control System
Vitalgo’s Total Lift Bed brings the first and only true “Weight Bearing Control” ever.
The combination weighing systems comprises a Bed Scale and Foot-Lifter Scale.
The display connected to the gooseneck is displaying three measurements –
1. The Patient weight.
2. The pressure applied on the Foot-Lifter.
3. The percentage of the Pressure on the foot –lifter as a ratio to the Patient weight.
As the patient is tilted or taken down, due to gravity the amount of pressure the patient is bearing becomes
greater or lesser. This is showed by the percentage indicator.
OPERATION –
IMPORTANT – Scale must be on when bed is in operation, otehrwise bed will not function well.

USE OF THE FOOT LIFTER-SCALE The Foot-Lifter-Scale (patent pending) is one of its kind measuring device, for showing the amount of pressure
the patient is putting, with his feet, on the Footboard.
• The more the bed is tilted the more pressure and weight the patient is transferring to the footboard.
This is very important to know, as it will be able to track and tell the amount of pressure the patient can bear,
while he is tilted.
The Foot-Lifter scale can help collecting data of the improvement of the patient condition, and thus help with
early mobility, progressive mobility and in Physical Therapy.
Foot Lifter scale is important for the following applications –
• Weight bearing control.
• Prevention and therapy of Pressure ulcers.
• Early Mobility.
• Progressive Mobility.
• Physical Therapy.
• Burn units.
NOTES –
• The Foot-Lifter scale is not for measuring the patient weight.
• There is an increase of 16-18 Lb (7-8 kg) to the reading of the scale between Horizontal position and Standing position. This is due to the gravity of the Footboard itself.
• The Foot-Lifter scale is operating with other functions of the bed, so should always be “On”.
