The Drive Delta Ultra Light 1000 Full-Electric Bed is a great choice for an electric bed because it can be used universally with both Drive bed ends and most other manufacturers’ bed ends. The key to this bed’s universal ability is in the transition box that’s mounted on the foot section. The transition box allows you to alter the rotation of the bed’s high-low shaft. Once installed, the high/low shaft will stay with the bed – eliminating the potential for loss or the possibility of forgetting to install it on a future installation.
This bed uses a channel frame construction that provides superior strength while keeping the bed’s overall weight at a minimum. Also, this full-electric bed frame features a zinc-coated spring deck for better durability. The frame supports up to 450 lbs.
This Delta Bed makes it easy to attach the bed rails since the installation holes are labeled and color-coded. This minimizes the chance of a bed rail in the wrong position and thus maximizes patient safety.
The motor for this bed comes already installed to make initial set-ups easier. Plus, the motor is completely self-contained, which reduces both the weight and noise. You can even install or remove the motor assembly with the patient still in bed! If there’s ever a power failure, this electric bed has a battery backup feature – a 9 volt battery that can raise or lower the head and foot sections up to 9 times. The hand pendant used to control the bed has been improved to include larger, easier-to-use controls.
To make this bed better fit within typical bedroom décor, the headboard is taller than the footboard. Both the footboard and headboard have a wood grain look for more style, and are scratch and break resistant for durability.
There are many different packages of this bed frame to choose from: 3 different 80” length mattresses to choose from: an Inner Spring Mattress, a Therapeutic Support mattress, or a Foam Mattress.
