The profiling only action will allow you to independently raise and lower both the back rest and the leg section by simply pushing a button on the hand controller. This mechanism is often the choice of partners in a double combination bed as it allows both individuals to sit up independently together. The metal construction makes this mechanism more durable for long term use and the only choice if grab handles or side rails are needed.
Variable height and profiling
In addition to the profiling only mechanism the variable height function is of significant benefit to less able people in a number of ways. If a carer or family member assists a person in bed, the variable height function will smoothly and safely raise the occupant to a safe working height, thereby reducing the risk of a back care injury.
Additionally, this function will help a person to achieve a standing transfer by vertically raising them to standing from sitting in a controlled and safe movement.
These strong steel mechanisms are exclusive to Theraposture. Many of our beds are used by clients with long term conditions and we developed these mechanisms, in consultation with our clients to last a very long time. The steel makes the mechanism very strong and the actuators and other electrics used are of the highest grade. These beds are made for the higher usage that many of our clients demand.
