Hospital Bed Terminology

Head & Foot Adjustable

Head & Foot Adjustable

Image shows head and foot adjusted (and hi-low fully raised). All Transfer Master beds are head and foot adjustable. This allows for your head and feet to be elevated.


Hi-Low

Hi-Low

Image shows an adjustable bed in the fully raised position, demonstrating the ability to vertically raise the bed from its lowest position for easy of transfers, and this also eliminates back strain for caregivers.


Trendelenburg

Trendelenburg

The user is in a supine position, lying face up, and the bed is angled so that the feet are above the head. This position has many benefits, typically with issues such as low blood pressure.


Reverse Trendelenburg

Reverse Trendelenburg

The user is laid flat in the head-up, feet-down position. This facilitates respiration, and alleviates regurgitation problems and acid reflux.


Cardiac Chair Position

Cardiac Chair Position

This position provides relief to the lungs and circulation, and assists them in coming from a fully flat position to a sitting position without causing harm or undue strain. The cardiac chair position is usually easier to adjust, with separate sections that support back, bottom, arms, and legs. This position requires a 4 function bed.


Night Rider HD / SHD Hospital Bed

Dual King Setup

Our Dual King option is the perfect way to meet differing needs of any couple. Each bed, separately controlled and sitting side by side, can look the same but have entirely different functions. When both beds are in the lowest position and covered with linens, the Dual King looks like an Eastern King size bed.


ECU Compliant with dual ports

ECU Compatible/Dual Ports

Environmental Control Unit (ECU) enables third party control systems (e.g. touchscreens or voice-operated systems) to be plugged in to our control boards. The control board includes two ports for maximum flexibility. The following beds are ECU compatible: Supernal Reflection, Floor Hugger, Night Rider Series, New Valiant Series, and Companion Series.

Transfer Master

About Transfer Master

Transfer Master has built electric adjustable hospital beds for the home and medical facility since 1993. We started with a simple goal that hospital beds should allow wheelchair users to transfer independently in and out of bed. Twenty-five years later, our customers are still at the center of everything we do. You’ll feel the difference.
