Do not regret this purchase. It has made his life much less painful.
3/5 Ease of Use
4/5 Meets Expectations
Reviewer: sandra c. from tallahassee, fl (caregiver)
User Details: 63 year old man with broken vertebrae in back needing a 3rd operation and possibly more.
Strengths: The ability of the bed to be raised and lowered for ease of getting into and out of the bed. The full electric function.
Weaknesses: 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.
