How do you make the patient surface width wider or narrower?
Sections along each side of the bed release and slide out or in to lock into place.

How does that work with the foam pressure reducing mattress?
The foam mattress is a 3 piece arrangement that offers side bolsters for the wider position. They are removed when reducing the patient surface width to transfer the patient on the bed to a new location.

Can the scale option be installed in the field?
No. The integrated scale system must be installed at the factory.

How wide and long is the patient surface of the bed?
37” Wide to 48” Wide and 86” Long

Why does a bed need to be independently tested to the UL 60601-1 and/or the IEC - 60601-2-38?
Many bariatric beds in the market may have only parts of the bed certified to one standard or another, for example, only the electrical package may have this level of safety assurance. The Tri-Flex II has passed the UL 60601-1 and IEC 60601-2-38 testing as a complete and total bed in indepedent testing by E.T.L..
