A 42-inch expander kit for Span-America Medical Systems Inc’s Rexx and Advantage long-term bed models aims to meet the needs of caregivers and patients alike. The company notes that the new expanders allow the Q-Series beds to offer enhanced user comfort and an added level of safety during repositioning.

The expander units are designed to attach without the need for tools and detach following removal of the corner mattress retainers. The product features a spring-loaded latch that fastens the expander units securely to the underside of the head, knee, and foot decks. The kit is comprised of form-fitted molded foam storage units, intended to support long-term use.

The company adds that its half-head assist rails (available in molded plastic or steel) are fully compatible with the product, fitting to the expander unit before it is attached to deck.
