VOLKER HEALTHCARE BEDS Distributed by Hertz Supply Co Inc

Volker Healthcare Beds address special mobility needs in a unique and positive way. Volker beds are different than traditional hospital type beds. They are designed to look like fine furniture, thereby creating a homelike atmosphere in the bedroom. Volker beds are made in high quality wood finishes with special care taken to hide the mechanical devices that can make a bed look clinical. Volker's style of beds has proven very desirable to individuals with disabilities and to families that are providing care for a loved one.

The attractive appearance doesn't mean they are missing any features. Quite to the contrary, they offer more features than most other healthcare beds.

Mobility is provided for in the functions of the Volker beds. The head section raises and then also moves a little toward the headboard at the same time.

A reclining chair position can be achieved, allowing for more comfort while eating, working, reading, or watching TV. Side rails are hidden out of sight until they are needed. Disappearing casters on all four wheels allow Volker beds to be moved in any direction. Pushing a button on the hand control electrically operates the casters and brakes.

Decor is always addressed with the Volker bed. A variety of head and footboard styles are available in different wood finishes to help match the style of your home. Volker uses beech wood (a hardwood) that is stained to the colors from the current selection. The belletto line from Volker offers a new level of design for those interested in greater style and choice. Beds in the belletto line offer the latest in head and footboard design, and include special mattresses from our beldorma line. The belletto beds are designed for older youths and adults. …
