HI/LO Wallhugger Bed
This compact sit-up position stays close to your wall or headboard, thereby increasing the effective room space as well as allowing you to reach the night table. By comparison, a typical recliner chair must have a 2 ft distance from the wall for reclining. In addition, castors are available for easy transport allowing the bed to be rolled into an elevator or another room.

FIG 2. Full Sit-up Position
A key feature of the wall hugger bed is its active sit up position. Essentially, this position allows the leg section to be lowered below horizontal, providing even weight distribution throughout the body. As a result, the spine can naturally arch, providing both comfort and support. Activities such as reading, watching TV, eating, and computer work are preferred in this alert position. Additionally, this position assists injured, disabled, or elderly persons in exiting the bed (i.e. into a chair, walker, or wheelchair).

FIG 8. a to d. Lift Chair Feature (click on image to see demonstration)
Allows user to raise their body from a lying down position to a sitting position and then to a full standing position. Performed by swinging feet onto the floor from the “full sit-up” position and raising the mid-section of the bed. This feature is crucial for anyone requiring assistance from a lift chair.
FIG 9. Stomach Sleep
Many people who are stomach sleepers struggle with back pains as they are unable to rest their backs in a relaxed down curved configuration. The unique adjustability of the bed allows users to determine their preferred elevations and angles to achieve their most comfortable sleep position, including on the stomach.
FIG 10. “S” Shape Back Sleep Position
The mid section tilt and knees slightly bent is relaxing and prevents hammocking even for weight challenged users. As well, the unique mid-section tilt prevents the user from slipping down to the foot end of the bed, which could cause waking and require repositioning. In the case of assisted living, this would cause discomfort for the user and possible back strain on the care giver.

FIG 13-15. . HI/LO Feature (click on image to see demonstration)
The HI/LO attachment can be supplied with the bed or as an add-on purchase at a later date. It is attached with 4 screws, uses the same legs as provided on the bed and plugs directly into the standard 4 motor bed controller. The HI/LO feature will raise the bed 11 inches from the lowest position (approximate bed height of 34 to 36 inches, depending on mattress thickness).
The contemporary chaise lounger look of this bed makes it suitable for den, office or living room use. Comes with an optional daytime cover.
