The Invacare Bariatric Bed is a heavy-duty full-electric bed frame designed for bariatric patients. It is capable of supporting individuals who weigh up to 600 pounds. The bed frame extends to the edges of the bed deck for better support than most other split-spring bariatric beds. Using the hand pendant, the patient or caregiver is able to change the positioning of the head and foot sections, as well as the bed height. Despite the bed being substantial in size, setup within the home is easy—no special tools are needed. Visit www.invacare.com.
