Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9858570A2] The bed is provided with a lower frame (12), comprising at least one leg or support element (16) for support on a sub-level, an upper frame (14) connected to the lower frame (12) which has a head end (2) and a foot end (24) and at least one connecting element (26) joining them. A lying surface (46) is also provided, which has two longitudinal edges (48) extending between the head end (22) and the foot end (24), in addition to at least one safety side end (52, 54) which can be displaced underneath the lying surface (46) in a pull-out plane between an insert position and a maximum pull-out position. The at least one safety side end (52, 54) remains in each intermediate position between its insert position and its maximum pull-out position when extended on the pull-out plane. In its maximum pull-out position, it can be pivoted around a pivotal axis (76) running substantially parallel to the longitudinal edges (48) of the lying surface (46), shifted into an upright position and secured against unintentional movements by a locking device (78).
