When choosing a SleepSafe® Bed, we want you and your loved ones to rest in a comfortable and safe environment, so with the advice from care giving professionals and listening to the needs of our clients, SleepSafe® Beds, has created durable medical equipment (DME) safety bed, that meets or exceeds the FDA guidelines on entrapment and falls.
Our durable medical equipment (DME) safety beds have one distinct difference — the HEIGHT OF THE SAFETY RAIL PROTECTION above the mattress. This choice should be made based on the activity level of the user. How active are they? How much safety rail above the mattress is needed? Can they sit up? Can they pull to kneel or stand in the bed? Keeping this in mind will help you and your doctor determine which bed is most appropriate. Also, you will need to order your bed with or without padding.
It is important to also consider TRANSFER HEIGHT.
• The SleepSafe® – BASIC Bed transfer height is 21¼” with safety rail on. 19¼” with safety rail off.
• The SleepSafe® – Low Bed transfer height is 21¼“ with safety rail on. 19¼“ with safety rail off.
• The SleepSafe® II – Medium Bed transfer height is 31″ with safety rail on. 29½” safety rail off.
• The SleepSafer® – Tall Bed transfer height is 25″ with safety rail on. 23½” with safety rail off.
For a complete comparison of bed models, please visit our SleepSafe® Bed Specifications.
As shown, each bed offers increased safety rail height and level of protection. When you line the 3 different beds side by side you will see that each one gets taller than the next.
Every durable medical equipment (DME) SleepSafe® Bed includes a foundation that supports the mattress. The following foundations are available for SleepSafe® Safety Beds:
• FIXED Foundation
• MANUAL Foundation
• ARTICULATED Foundation
• HI-LO Foundation
Select the features and functions that will best suit your needs.
• FIXED FOUNDATION offers a foundation with a fixed height and NO articulation or HI-LO features. The mattress will lie flat on a box spring or bunkie board. Depending on the bed model chosen, you will have more than one choice for positioning that fixed height at the time of installation.
• The SleepSafe® – BASIC Bed offers 1 fixed height option. Bunkie Board only.
• The SleepSafe® – Low Bed offers 2 different fixed height options.
• The SleepSafe® II – Medium Bed offers 2 different fixed height options.
• The SleepSafer® – Tall Bed offers 2 different fixed height options.
The height/positioning choice you make when installing the fixed foundation will determine the height of safety rail protection above the mattress. Example, if you choose to install at the lower position, this will increase the height of protection above the mattress. You may change the height of your fixed foundation at any time.
NOTE: You have a choice when choosing the Fixed foundation of a box spring or bunkie board. There is NO cost or comfort difference between the two options. The only difference in the two is the depth of each. A bunkie board offers approximately 5″ more of safety rail protection.
• NEW! MANUAL FOUNDATION offers four choices. The hand cranks use a hydraulic system and are easy to use with little effort by the operating caregiver. Note: The hand crank handles fold up into the handle’s shaft.
• ARTICULATED FOUNDATION offers an electric frame with a fixed height. This foundation features head and knee elevation by remote control. With the touch of a button, you can elevate the head and/or knee section of the bed. As in the Fixed foundation, there are more than one height positions to choose at time of installation.
The height/positioning choice you make when installing the Articulated foundation will determine the height of safety rail protection above the mattress. Example, if you choose to install at the lower position, this will increase the height of protection above the mattress. You may change the height of your fixed foundation at any time.
• HI-LO FOUNDATION offers a Hi-Lo electric frame as your foundation with FULL articulation. Not only does the head and knee section elevate, but the Hi-Lo feature allows the mattress surface to be raised or lowered by remote control. This is considered a fully electric bed. Depending on where you position the mattress within the frame will determine the amount of safety rail protection above the mattress. When lowered all the way down you will maximize the rail height above the mattress. As you begin to raise the mattress from the floor, you will decrease that safety rail height above the mattress. With the Hi-Lo foundation, you can position the mattress anywhere within the range of motion of the frame.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Hi-Lo electric foundation has a WIRED remote control on a cord plugged into the bed and does NOT operate more than one bed. No problem to have multiple beds in one space.
The following durable medical equipment (DME) bed sizes are available for SleepSafe® Beds. Mattresses support up to 350 lbs.
• TWIN offers a standard twin bed size. Mattress size is 38″ by 77″.
ALL twin sized beds are available with all available foundations.

ALL full sized beds are available with all available foundations.

ALL queen sized beds are available with all available foundations.
The following wood choices are available for all SleepSafe® Beds. Please note that our beds are made with natural wood with a clear finish. We do not use a stain or paint, allowing the natural beauty of the wood to shine through a protective clear finish.
• ALDER is a rustic birch with random knots and straight grain. It is moderately light with a clear, natural finish.
• MAPLE is the lightest of wood choices and shows very little wood grain.
• OAK is a bit darker than the maple, but relatively light in color and shows more natural wood grain.
• CHERRY is slightly darker than Maple and Oak but again, is still relatively light in color. Many people tend think of the dark cherry stain when thinking of cherry, but remember this is the natural wood with no stain finish, however, over time, cherry wood will darken naturally over the years.
• MAHOGANY should be the darkest of the wood choices but mahogany finishes will vary significantly. We use an African Mahogany which is naturally lighter than typical dark Mahogany. The color will darken with time. We clear coat the wood to bring out the wood’s beautiful grain.
• MIXED or SOLID COLORS are now available! The colors of the bed components can be mixed and matched for the combination of your choice. Colors include solid White, Blue, Green, Red, Yellow, Orange, Purple and Black. All leg posts are available in Maple only. Leg posts are not available in colors. Contact us or talk to your local distributor for details.
• PADDING: Very Important : When ordering your bed, you will need to order your SleepSafe® Bed with or without padding depending on your needs. Our beds are now sized and manufactured accordingly. It is important to make this determination when you order your bed as retrofitting your bed in the future will be costly. If you order padding, it will be installed at the factory and will cover ALL four sides. Padding only one or two sides is NOT an option.
If you order padding with your bed, it is very important to NEVER use the bed if you have removed one or more of the pads. If you remove ANY of the pads, a gap will be created between the mattress and the sides of the bed potentially creating a risk for entrapment.
Two colors of padding are currently available: Cream or Gray. We will be expanding the color range to include Blue and Taupe in early fall.
• NEW! MESH SCREENED WINDOWS INSTALLED IN THE SAFETY RAILS instead of the traditional clear windows.
• IV POLE can be installed anywhere on the footboard or headboard. It is a 30 inch stainless steel pole with 2 ram hooks.
• MEDICAL TUBING can be accessed through a 2″ by 18″ vertical hole cut from the headboard.

• FOOTBOARD WINDOW is available for installation in the footboard.
• EXTENDED ENCLOSURE – OPEN will add 16¾” of safety height to our SleepSafer® Bed
• EXTENDED ENCLOSURE – CLOSED will add a top securely onto the Extended Enclosure.
