Physically challenged individuals who cannot prevent themselves from rolling/climbing out of the this bed
may require alternative safe means of restraint.
Procedures other than those described in this manual must be performed by a qualified technician.
Risk of injury to persons - DO NOT place video equipment such as televisions or computer monitors on
NEVER allow patients to use trapeze or traction units as a total individual weight support.
Trapeze units are to be used only for assisting the patient in repositioning or transferring into or out of bed.
Trapeze units must be positioned on a universal bed end as near as possible to the center point of the
bed end.
The 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.
The bed may be equipped with locking casters. When transferring into or out of the bed, always lock the
locking caster(s). Inspect for correct locking action on caster locks before using bed. 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.

The total weight limit of the Drive Medical 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.
Use this bed only for its intended use as described in these instructions. DO NOT use attachments not
recommended by the manufacturer.
After raising/lowering the head/foot end of the 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.
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.
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.
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 Drive Medical replacement parts and/or accessories otherwise the warranty is void. Drive Medical
will not be responsible for any damage or injury that may result.
To reduce the risk of entrapment make certain that the bed rail cross braces DO NOT exceed the width of
the mattress. Mattress MUST fit bed frame and side rails snugly to reduce the risk of entrapment.
When operating this bed, 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.
Drive Medical recommends that the mattress be centered on the bed frame. Otherwise, individuals may
become entangled between the bed rail and the bed frame.
Mattress MUST fit bed frame and assist rails snugly to reduce the risk of entrapment.
