Span America Encore bed with GlideAlign retractability provides measurably improved levels of care and comfort for the user and better ergonomics and protection from injury for the caregiver.

GlideAlign™ retractable deck technology
  • Fall prevention: when the user is kept in vertical alignment all access-points in the user's bed environment remain safely within reach.
  • Staff protection: fixed-deck beds cannot keep the user in alignment necessitating frequent turning or repositioning of the user, increasing the prospect of staff injury.
  • Protection from shearing: the user glides back to original position following HOB elevation. This protects sensitive skin areas such as sacrum, heels and elbows from skin shearing induced by friction with the sheets.
Intelligent smart stop:
  • Auto-stops when deck is lowered to 12.5"
  • Helps avoid unsafe egress from "too-low" bed
  • Staff foot-end control allows lowering to continue
  • Reduces caregiver exposure to bedside emergencies
Advanced clinical positioning:
  • Auto contour
  • Comfort chair
  • Trendelenburg
  • Reverse trendelenburg
Optional Readywide™ integrated “Two Click” expansion:
  • Bariatric bed when needed: accommodates users up to 600 lbs. (SWL)

  • Navigates narrow doorways: expanders provide fast, hassle-free solution for in-facility bed mobility
  • At-the-ready, "two click" expansion: Click once to pull expander out to 39" wide. Click again for 42" width
Optional 3-position assist device
  • Ergonomic 3-position assist device locks at right angle to the bed for sturdy ingress/egress support, protecting both user and caregiver. Both 3-position and half-length assist device made of molded, pleasing-to-touch materials.
