SleepSafe beds are durable medical equipment product with grown-ups and children with special needs, as their target group. They prevent falls and entrapments for individuals with cognitive and physical disabilities. SleepSafe Beds are listed and registered with the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), as they meet all their guidelines on entrapment and fall. Their patented design is not only aesthetically appealing, but addresses all safety issues in ways no other traditional institutional equipment can match:
The structure of every Sleep Safe bed includes a foundation which supports the mattress. The frame can be fixed, articulated or HI-LO. The primary models are - SleepSafe Classic Low Bed, SleepSafe II Medium Bed and SleepSafer Tall Bed.
Let us look at the key features of SleepSafe beds which will help the customer choose the best to match his/her needs:
This refers to the distance from the top of the mattress to the top of the safety rail. The choice should be made based on the activity level of the user. The SleepSafer Extension Kit offers an additional 16.75 inches of safety rail height when ordered or retrofitted with the existing SleepSafer bed.
This is the distance from the floor to the top edge of the bed’s wooden side panel below the safety rail.
Foundation type and its features or functions: The following foundation choices are available for SleepSafe beds –
|Type||HI-LO Foundation (Manual/Electric)||Articulating Foundation (Manual/Electric)|
Each of these beds is available with each of the foundation types. The mattresses can support up to 350 lbs.
SleepSafe beds use natural wood with a clear finish. Some of the choices include alder, maple, oak, mahogany, cherry, mixed or solid colors.
Padding, pole option, headboard window, footboard window, mesh screened windows, medical tubing, extended enclosure (open/closed), dual view safety rails for high bed, extension kit to increase the height of the safety rail, enclosed top with padding for additional safety.
All bed models have locking casters. They use a memory foam mattress which provides unique comfort zones for support and pressure relief. The gel polymers in the foam keep the mattress cool so as to maintain the user’s body temperature. The mattress is covered in a pressure reducing, fluid-resistant, fire-retardant, anti-bacterial, nylon fabric cover.
The main difference amongst the three (3) models is the height of their safety rail protection above the mattress. Each model increases its overall height by about 10 to 12 inches. So, even when the safety rail does not change in size, its overall height changes with each model. They also differ in their transfer height. While, the user has to pick the bed model and foundation type, based on his/her requirement, the following specifications of each of the models will facilitate his/her decision-making.
