In October of 2017, ProBed was honoured to assist a New England family in need. Partnering with the Jett Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, ProBed helped the Gaudenzi family take possession of a Freedom Bed lateral rotation sleep system by collaborating with the Jett Giving Fund. ProBed Medical is pleased to participate and give back to those in our community affected by immobility.
