Many have asked "what does remanufactured mean?" HBR's remanufactured Hill-Rom products are pre-owned hospital equipment that have undergone an in-depth 55 step restoration process. These aren't just used beds that have been cleaned and put up for resale like an automobile on a used car lot. Using the same analogy, HBR's products are comparable to a meticulously restored automobile where the restoration goal is to produce a product that is as good as or exceeds it's originally manufactured condition and performance.
HBR Healthcare has achieved this goal with a high volume process that minimizes the restoration cost and assures the highest integrity of the final product. All remanufactured products are completely disassembled and every component is thoroughly tested and is either remanufactured or replaced with components that meet or exceed Hill-Rom's original component specifications. Everything is completely refinished prior to reassembly and is then subjected to an extensive performance inspection procedure. The end result is a product which is every bit as functional and enduring as a brand new bed at a fraction of the original cost.
As new technology, stricter safety standards, and customer requirements have evolved, HBR has responded with approved modifications and enhancements to obtain peak performance levels and enhanced functionality resulting in many years of dependable service to aid the caregiver and comfort the patient.
