Atlanta, Georgia, March 30, 2023: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GF Health Products, Inc. (Graham-Field) announces an expansion of its offering of Sub-Acute Care and Extended Care Beds. Manufactured in the United States at the Basic American Bed facility in Fond-du-Lac, Wisconsin, the new beds take advantage of Graham-Field’s enhanced manufacturing resources to include computer-controlled laser welding, robotic assembly and an upgraded automated coating line. “What this translates to for our customers is a product with more features, higher build-quality and a lower price point,” said Ken Spett, CEO and President of Graham-Field. Spett added, “As one of the largest Healthcare Bed manufacturers in the world, we receive constant feedback from our customer base. They are asking for more features at a reduced cost-in-use over time product. These new beds deliver on that request”.
The latest enhancements to the Basic American Extended Care Beds include:
- New Sleep Deck design for the SLIDE-W-I-D-E® Sleep Deck and the standard Sleep Deck
- The new Sleep Deck is now an integrated design feature and the Sleep Deck is adjustable from 80” to 84” (203cm to 213cm)
- The new Optimized Hi-Lo System supports higher weight capacities
- Improved Control Box design is more intuitive and easier to operate
“The integration and standardization of key features on these new Extended Care Beds will allow us to reduce SKUs and increase the manufacturing capacity of fewer units. This will reduce our lead times which is a critical factor when our customers require beds. Our Made in USA Product Strategy has the single objective of higher quality products brought closer to the customer;” added Cynthia Counts, Chief Product Officer for Graham-Field. The first phase of the enhanced Basic American Beds will include the Zenith 7200 Extended Care Bed that is now available. All the new Basic American Beds can be found on the Graham-Field website, www.grahamfield.com to include product information sheets and product videos such as this one for the new 7200 .
