The BARIBED 1400CAM.SR Bariatric Bed is designed primarily for use in Hospitals and other institutions. Its purpose is to support patients whose weight exceeds that of the conventional bed and who may require specialized positioning. The frame is constructed entirely of metal. The frame in its lowest position is approximately 14" from the floor to the mattress pan. In the upper position the height is approximately 29". The unique expandable frame design allows the bed to accommodate 37", 39", 42", 48" or 54" support surfaces. When outfitted with the appropriately designed mattress (39", 42", 48, or "54") you can adjust the bed surface so as to allow it to fit through a 39" door opening.


The frame is designed to support a safe working load of 1000 lbs. Side rails at the head end are standard. Optionally, the bed can be equipped with foot end side rails and foot and head end side rail pads. The 45 degree angle setting of the side rails assists in patient ingress and egress.

An optional trapeze is capable of supporting the maximum patient weight for this type of bed. Swivel casters 5" in diameter and a hard tread wheel with break and swivel lock provides for easy movement of the bed.

A mattress guard rod across the foot end of the bed prevents the foot end of the mattress from sliding off the bed, particularly when the head end (fowler) is raised.


The bed contains four electric drive modules, one for the head, one for the knee, one Hi/Lo for head end of the bed and one Hi/Lo for the foot end of the bed. A hand crank is supplied which can be used to adjust the bed in ca'se of power or actuator failure.

  • Five Function Operation -A 10 button, 5 function hand pendant is used to control the positioning of the bed.
  • The BED up and down buttons causes the bed to raise and lower.
  • The HEAD up and down button causes the head of the bed to raise and lower (fowler).
  • The KNEE foot buttons cause the knees and lower portion of the legs to be raised and lowered. (The Knee Gatch)
