WheelBed / Folding care beds

WheelBed
WheelBed

This product is a multifunctional folding wheelchair bed. Part of the bed is formed by a deformable wheelchair. The retraction and expansion of the wheelchair is fully powered by the battery mounted beneath the wheelchair. The entire deformation process can be easily completed by pressing a few buttons. When patients want to move from bed to wheelchair, they only need to lie to one side of the bed, i.e., the side formed by the surface of the expanded wheelchair, and then press the on/off button. Driven by the electric motor, the wheelchair will fold up slowly until transform into the shape that can be normally used.
