“This is the perfect bed for my grandmom at home. It is a very similar bed when grandmom used at the hospital. Very quiet and smooth moving, no noise at all. The seller provided a helpful and kind service for the delivery and unpack information. Unpack manual was very useful and it makes easy unpack. Highly recommend purchasing for personal use at home.”
