The PrimePlus 1000 Pound High Capacity Bed has a unique, fully-adjustable frame design that makes it exceptionally easy to use. This Bariatric Hospital Bed also has one of the highest bariatric weight capacities of any bed on the market.
It offers a long list of safety and customization features that create an unbeatable combination of advantages for both patients and caregivers.
For starters, the deck height of this Low Hospital Bed can adjust between high and low positions. The low position brings the mattress deck to just 18 1/2 inches off the ground. Low hospital beds increase safety and comfort for patients with limited mobility by making it easier to get in and out of bed.

The PrimePlus Hospital Bed can also adjust by length and width without the need of an extension set. Adjusting the bed's dimensions is quick and easy. The width of the bed can adjust between 39, 42, 48 and 54 inch positions. The width adjusts by simply pushing a release button and pulling the frame out.
The length adjusts by first removing the footboard and mattress retainers. Ergonomic screw knobs release the footboard and allow it to be pulled out of the bed frame. Mattress retainers remove from the frame after releasing their retaining pins by hand. Once the footboard and mattress retainers are removed, simply pull or push on the foot end of the bed frame to adjust its length. View a demonstration video of these functions below.
This Full Electric Hospital Bed comes with a patient control pendant that controls the bed's electronic functions. The bed can rise and lower at the head and at the knees. An optional control lockout is also available for this bed.
Padded Side Rails Included
The Primus High Capacity Bed frame comes with a pair of included padded side rails. The rails create additional safety for patients by reducing the risk of falling out of the bed.
They attach and remove from the bed easily, and they can also adjust to different positions. Please note that the side rails add 2 1/2 inches to the width of each side of the bed.
Headboards and Footboards
A high capacity headboard and footboard must be purchased separately with the Primus PrimePlus Bed.
The headboards and footboards that we list in the accessories section with this bed 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 PrimePlus Hospital Bed. Each item is sold separately from the bed frame, except the pair of padded side rails which come included with the bed.
Additional Padded Side Rails
Extra padded side rails can be purchased with this bed to accompany the two side rails that come standard with the bed frame. Additional side rails can be placed on other points of the bed frame when more than one pair is desired.
Side rails are sold individually (not in pairs), and they attach and remove from the bed frame using simple hand tools.
The staff control makes it possible for medical workers and caregivers 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 at the same time as the footboard so it can be installed before shipment.
Freestanding Bariatric Trapeze
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.
As a freestanding model, it can be moved into and out of position when desired. It has a weight capacity of 750 pounds.
Integrated Bariatric Trapeze
The integrated bariatric trapeze is a more permanent and heavy duty option for patients who need lift assistance to sit up in bed.
The trapeze frame installs right into the frame of the bed. The trapeze bar can be adjusted into several positions along the length of the trapeze frame. It has a weight capacity of 1000 pounds.
Bariatric Bed Scale
This bed scale is specifically designed to work with this bed frame. It allows patients to be weighed without having to leave the bed. This is essential for bedridden bariatric patients whose medical care requires frrequent weighing.
The bariatric bed scale installs into the bed frame easily.
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 the backup battery to the bed.
