Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution alliance with SleepSafe® Beds to offer their SleepSafer® High Beds to a more comprehensive consumer audience. Headquartered in Bassett, Virginia, SleepSafe® Beds began its operations as English Ave Industries, manufacturing premium wood products and custom furniture. Because of a request they received from the New York State Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities in 2000 for a bed that would prevent falls and entrapment for individuals in their group homes and this company’s subsequent, successful fulfillment of that request, they furthered the development of their SleepSafe® Beds for individuals with special needs.
Since then, the SleepSafe® Bed represents a standard to which competitors aspire to in the industry. This patented bed system has been created with input from healthcare industry professionals as well as the end users, and addresses the 7 zones of entrapment research conducted by the FDA Hospital Bed Safety Workgroup. With a choice of low, medium and high beds, the SleepSafer® High Bed is generally the most appropriate selection for more active users. Two independently operating safety rails on one side of the bed provide protection ranging from 17 to 36 inches above the mattress, and can be removed or rotated out of the way for easier accessibility. Dual View safety rails are additionally available for access from both sides of the bed, and the footboard and headboard extend below the mattress and box spring to reduce the risk of entrapping a leg or arm.
A wide assortment of options and features allow simple and perfect customization for every user’s unique special needs and requirements, including a choice of fixed, articulated and articulated with HI-LO foundations; youth, twin or full sizes; wood color and finish; and special accessories such as an IV Pole, Padding options, and Window options.
“We are excited to introduce more consumers to the feature-rich SleepSafer® High Beds from SleepSafe® Beds,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Since the bed’s users can see their environment, this reduces the chance of claustrophobia and encourages more comfortable and secure rest, while this innovative design also gives the caregivers a full view for easy monitoring. Maximizing stability and strength of the sleep surface in all positions, the rigid construction with a high bed frame utilizes heavy tubular steel for the ultimate in durability, performance and reliability. We are proud to offer this, and all of the fantastic special needs beds from SleepSafe® Beds to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
