The Primus Ultimate High/Low Bed is a fully electric Bariatric Hospital Bed with an ultra-low mattress deck. The low deck increases safety and comfort for bariatric patients, especially patients at risk of falling or injuring themselves when entering or exiting the bed.
Made by Primus Medical, this bed boasts a unique frame design that makes it adjustable by length and height. The length adjusts between three positions: 76, 80 and 84 inches long. In its low position, the bed deck rests only 6 7/8 inches off the ground. It can be raised to a high position of 30 7/8 inches off the ground.

The bed frame has a tubular, telescopic construction that makes it fast and easy to adjust its length and height. To make adjustments, just remove two screws, pull the bed frame to the desired length and then replace the screws. This feature helps the bed accommodated patients of different heights.
The low position on this bed makes it safer and easier for patients with limited mobility to enter and exit the bed. Conveniently, the bed can roll when set at any height position. It includes a caster wheel locking mechanism that can be engaged and disengaged by simply pressing a foot tab near the wheels.
This Full Electric Hospital Bed comes with a patient control pendant that controls the bed's electronic functions. The bed can rise and lower electronically at the head and knees, and it can also convert to trendelenburg and reverse trendelenburg positions. An optional control lockout is also available.
Another unique feature of this Low Hospital Bed is its heel lift ratchet. Separate from its electronic positioning functions, medical workers can pull up on the lower portion of the bed frame to quickly ratchet the foot of the frame into an elevated position.
Headboards and Footboards
A headboard and footboard must be purchased separately with the Primus Ultimate High/Low Bed. Make sure to match the correct head/footboard width to the width of the bed. 35 inches wide is the default, and 42 inches wide when using a width extension.
The headboards and footboards that we list in the accessories section with this bed are a rectangular shape and are available in either oak or mahogany. For additional head/footboard styles and colors, call us at 1-800-397-5899 for assistance. See Additional Head/Footboard Styles and Colors
Customization OptionsSee below for a list of optional accessories and upgrades that you can use to customize your Primus Bariatric Low Bed. Each item is sold separately from the bed frame.
Two types of optional assist bars are available for separate purchase with this bed, a regular assist bar and a 1/4 assist bar. Both assist bar types are sold individually (not in pairs).
They screw into place by hand using hard plastic screw knobs, and they can be removed just as easily without tools. The bars help patients assist themselves in and out of bed and serve as partial bed rails.
The staff control makes it possible for medical workers to enable and disable the functionality of the control pendant at the patient's end of the bed. It also allows workers to control the bed's electronic functions while standing at the foot of the bed.
The staff control is embedded in the bed's footboard. It must be purchased along with the footboard so it can be installed before shipment.
This freestanding trapeze is a great option for patients who need additional assistance when sitting up. It is specifically designed to compliment this bed's design.
Because it is a freestanding model, it can be moved into or out of position whenever needed. It has a weight capacity of 500 pounds.
42 Inch Width Extension
This extension set converts the standard 35 inch wide Primus Low Bed into a 42 inch wide bed, providing some extra elbow room for patients who need it. The kit is easy to install and uninstall with simple hand tools.
Battery Backup with Mount
The battery backup ensures that the bed will still function in the event of a power outage. It is an excellent safety option for medical facilities. It comes with the hardware needed to mount it to the bed frame.
*Bed is pictured with headboard, footboard, assist rails and staff control/lockout -- all of which are sold separately from the bed frame.
