The Opera® Classic Low Profiling Bed with Side Rails is the same bed as the Opera® Classic Low (see here), only this bed is supplied complete with integral side rails. The Classic Low with Side Rails represents a durable, functional and user-friendly bed and is widely used across care homes, nursing units and in homecare, where a hospital bed is required but with a homely design.
The Classic Low with Side rails works well with high dependency users who are at risk of falling from bed. The bed can be lowered to just 220mm from the floor, minimising the risk and severity of fall injuries. The integral side rails can be used as another preventative measure. This combination of low height and side rails provides an ultra-safe sleeping environment for the user. Alternatively, the side rails can be locked down out of the way where they present a risk to the user. A crash mat can be placed next to the bed to reduce the risk of injury even further. The Classic Low bed also increases the ease of transferring the user into and out of the bed, and can often enable them to get in and out of bed independently.
The Opera® Classic Low with Side Rails has an electrically profiling 4-part mattress platform and height adjustment, operated by an easy-to-use remote handset. The handset can be clipped onto the side of the bed out of the way, ensuring a clutter-free surrounding. The handset contains a secure locking function that can be activated by the operator to prevent the bed user from using the handset, ideal for the carer of a patient suffering from dementia.
The Opera® Classic Low with Side Rails is supplied complete with integral side rails. The side rails have been designed and constructed to ensure the bed can accommodate a mattress up to 8" deep. This allows the bed to be used with an 8" alternating pressure mattress (like the 7" Opera® Flo) and comply with the BS EN 60601-2-52:2010 medical beds standard. This means the bed will not need to be replaced, should the user require an alternating pressure/air flow mattress in the future. The choice of three stylish wood colours from stock allows the Opera® Classic Low with Side Rails to fit into any bedroom surrounding. We confidently back up the longevity of this bed by including a three year parts and labour warranty.
