care" facilities and "senior care" and one of the primary needs

of full rail and long term care beds noramlly sit lower to the ground.

times the main item needed to keep patients at home instead of
going to an aftercare facility and for many facilities getting a good
quality hospital style bed is a big deal for patient care.
