My invacare bed head section won't go up to 90degrees and I need it too. Is that a possibility???
I have trouble getting out of bed with my disability. Solution could be if the head section could go a bit higher angle like 90 degrees. It goes about to 70 degrees now. Is there any way I can get it to go to 90 degree??
It is possible that the head section of your Invacare bed is not able to go up to a 90 degree angle due to a mechanical issue or a limitation in the design of the bed. You should contact Invacare or a medical equipment repair professional to have the bed inspected to determine the cause of the issue and if it can be resolved. If the bed cannot be adjusted to the desired angle, you may need to consider purchasing a different bed that better meets your needs.
It is possible that the head section of your Invacare bed is not able to raise to a 90-degree angle due to a mechanical issue with the bed. It could be due to a problem with the motor or gears that control the movement of the head section, or it could be due to an issue with the electrical components that power the bed.
You should check the following things:
Check the bed's remote control to ensure that it is functioning properly.
Make sure that the bed's power cord is securely plugged into the outlet and that the outlet is working properly.
Check the bed's battery level, if the bed has a battery backup.
Make sure that the bed is not locked in place or that the manual lock is not engaged.
Check that all the bed's connections are secure, and all the bed's cables are properly plugged in.
If none of these solutions resolve the issue, it may be necessary to contact the manufacturer or a healthcare equipment repair service for further assistance.
