Wellcare bed / medical bed

Wellcare bed

Well-care bed is for people who are physically disabled. It is especially useful for wheelchair users to go up and down without their helper’s help. Using the function of the bed,
you can live comfortably even without a helper, which will further improve the quality of life. The composite hinge automatically lifts the bottom
plate when the handle is pulled, and the segmentedmatrix automatically bends the partitions up. The second structure is the tray and drawer that are connected by one axis.
The connected tray can be moved to area where the user can eat.
The drawer can be used as a staircase.
