KI’s mobile Hiatus Sleeper Bench is perfect for compact space


The Hiatus Sleeper Bench is an intuitively designed sleep-over solution, created to enhance the experience of a patient’s visitors while visiting their loved one. With easily understandable visual cues for use, the Hiatus Sleeper Bench from KI provides instinctive operation for guests to easily transform the bench from sit-to-sleep.  The seating surface accommodates multiple family members and can be converted into a sleeping surface, where the mattress is the size of a standard twin-size bed.

The space-saving size of the Hiatus Sleeper Bench accommodates visitors’ needs while being considerate of changing healthcare environment needs and space utilization. This compact and highly-mobile design provides a sleeping solution that fits in very limited space. Featuring large, easy-access locking casters, the Hiatus Sleeper Bench can be moved with ease when relocating to different spaces, or for daily housekeeping needs.
