Mom in Memory Care facility with dementia.
Staff caring for my Mother are appreciative of the lift/lower capability.
Mattress that came with the bed is very low quality.

My mom is 91 and in assisted living. Her mobility is severely limited, although she does walk some.
We like the bed because it has 6-way movement and it helps to keep my mom a one-person assist.
We ordered the 1/2 rails, but had to return them as they would not fit. Basically, I don't see any weaknesses.

Amputee in power chair who needs a bed to adjust in height to match chair height.
Seems stable and well built. This bed is nicer looking then the usual hospital bed. Delivery was fast.
Assemby instructions are very poor. I have never determined how to lower the bed to 9 inches. It took 2 hours to assemble using trial and error. Mattress was a rock (premium foam) and could not be returned even if unwrapped. There should be an exchange policy if unused and unwrapped or sent back within 48 hours or something. We needed to invest in another mattress for my dad to even use the bed. Clip to hold controller comes off the bed frame too easily. Delivery company pretty much dumped the pallet at the end of the driveway in the rain,since I did not pay the extra to have it brought into the house. After buying a new mattress and getting it set up it is aceptable but I would not have bought it if I could have seen it first.

Do not regret this purchase. It has made his life much less painful.

63 year old man with broken vertebrae in back needing a 3rd operation and possibly more.
The ability of the bed to be raised and lowered for ease of getting into and out of the bed. The full electric function.
The metal connection for the rails sticks out too far. The rails are also too long - a shorter top rail, padded would be better. Removed the rails and installed a portable rail because of this - but now the metal connection hits his calves at exactly the place where he is most comfortable sitting before getting into the bed. Also, I wish that the bottom portion of the bed could be elevated to help with edema in the feet.
