Impulse 400 – low to floor bed

Our premium care bed – the Impulse Series are equipped with a comprehensive range of features and can be adapted flexibly to suit virtually every situation. Our beds’ technical features and high quality as well as stable designs offer you consistency and long term planning. The Impulse Series are stylish four section electrically operated home-like low to the floor beds with universal features. They have been designed and built with every need taken into consideration.


The Impulse 400 low care bed allows the reclining surface to be lowered to a floor height of just 25cm. There is almost no risk of injury to occupants in this position in the event of a fall. The Malsch low care beds are equipped with a superior range of features during the manufacturing process, from a comfort seat positioning and mobilising side rail to the transfer position, which facilitates patients’ mounting and dismounting at an optimised seating height. As well as backrest and knee break, the Impulse 400 has Trendelenburg functions both in a forward and reverse direction.

The Impulse is available on its own or as part of a Companion Bed arrangement.

Care & Warranty

Please see below for warranty and maintenance information across our Healthcare Bedding range:


Our range of Malsch beds come with a 5-year warranty on the frame, alongside a 2-year warranty on the motor/electrics. Parts and labour are covered within the warranty. However, for clients outside of metro Perth there will be a labour/transport fee.


For individual homecare use we recommend general cleaning of your bed frame and surround. Vacuuming the bed mechanisms to reduce dust build-up, and wiping down on a regular basis with a damp cloth and gentle cleaning solution as standard. Any oiling of nuts and bolts should be done with a silicon based oil e.g., WD-40 Specialist Silicone Spray. All purchases will receive a digital instruction manual when you receive delivery of your bed.

For care facilities, a deeper cleaning regime in line with aged care and disability facility standards is recommended. This includes at minimum the above.


We recommend that our customers conduct a service of their bed every 18 months to 2 years. A general bed service & maintenance can be booked within the Perth metropolitan area, with the first half-hour of labour charges at $195 inclusive of minor parts. In the unlikely event that further time is required or other parts are needed, additional cost of $25 per 15 minutes thereafter is applicable and required parts chargeable.

*** Please note, European Bedding abides by Australian Consumer Law, meaning our valued customers are always fully protected at all times. Whilst our products are known for their quality and reliability, we also provide a warranty to protect your purchase and to offer peace of mind.
