A popular manufacturing company, invacare manual 5301ivc beds are long lasting, pass the FDA rules and are safe to use. This manual bed would be ideal for a rehabilitative patient who has gone through an orthopedic surgery and after coming back home, is asked to do simple exercises by their physiotherapist so that they can recover fully. I would not recommend any manual bed to patients who are immobile or to muscular dystrophy kids.
Why? It would call for the caregiver to constantly be around the patient so that they can adjust the bed. And if there is one thing that I have noted about invalids in my long career as a physiotherapist, it is that they hate feeling that they are a bother to you. It would therefore not be strange to find a patient falling from the bed as they struggle to adjust the cranks yet you were just a call away.
With a patient who is on the path to recuperation though, it is a best fit.

The foam mattress is waterproof, comfortable and offers theraupetic value to the patient.
It is also lighter as compared to other hospital bed mattresses and therefore easy to carry.
The cover on it is durable, anti-bacterial and anti-static to improve on the comfort of the bed.
