All Care A-Frame Canopy Enclosure

The Posey Bed 8060 is an A-Frame canopy system. When attached to a compatible hospital bed (not included), the 8060 is designed to help provide a safe, controlled environment for patients at extreme risk of injury from a fall or unassisted bed exit.

Depending on the features of the bed, operational limits must also be observed when a Posey Bed canopy is in use as described in the User Manual.

  • Includes Fully Automatic Hospital Bed.
  • Enclosed Patented Mattress Compartment helps reduce the risk of patient entrapment.
  • Water-repellent, skin friendly, and durable nylon canopy.
  • Four access panels for patient care from all four sides.
  • Quick-Release Buckles lock the zipper pull-tabs for added patient security.
  • Perimeter Guards for temporary use during patient care.
  • Foam Canopy Pads around the metal canopy frame.
  • Four Tube Ports: One on each side of the head and foot of the canopy.
  • Locking Casters to secure bed during patient transfers and when patient is unattended.

  Install or Replace mattress

The Posey Bed 8060 mattress compartment is designed to fit either:

  • A standard mattress that is six inches high, thirty-five inches wide and eighty inches long (6” x 35” x 80”) (15 cm x 89 cm x 203 cm);
  • An inflatable air-type mattress that is ten inches high, thirty-five inches wide and eighty inches long (10” x 35” x 80”) (25 cm x 89 cm x 203 cm).

Any other size mattress may result in damage to the bed, patient injury or death.

  • Completely unzip the mattress compartment.
  • Insert the mattress.
  • Completely zip the mattress compartment closed.

To fit the ten inch (25 cm) high air-type mattress in the mattress compartment:

  • Find the expansion zipper under the instruction storage pocket on the side panel.
  • Fully expand the mattress compartment by unzipping the zipper around the entire length of the mattress compartment.
  • Follow instructions above on how to install a mattress.
  • Always use the proper size mattress(see “Choosing the right mattress” above). Using a smaller mattress will result in gaps between the canopy and mattress. Using a larger mattress will stress the fabric and may damage the zipper.
  • The mattress must be fully zippered into the mattress compartment at all times when a patient is in the Posey Bed 8060
  • Never open or close the mattress compartment while the head or knee of the bed is in the UP position, as this may damage the fabric and/or the zipper.
  • Never use a mattress less than six inches(15 cm) high. Always make sure the expansion zipper is fully closed when using this size mattress.
  • Never use a mattress smaller than ten inches(25 cm) high when the compartment is expanded.
  • Make sure the expansion zipper is closed when using a six inch (15 cm) mattress.
  • Never put a mattress inside the patient area of the bed.
  • A failure to follow these warnings may result in excess material in the patient area and increase the risk of serious injury or death from entrapment or suffocation.
