Commonly referred to as Electric beds, profiling beds or care beds. People also refer to them as hospital beds, although they are more commonly found in residential properties.
Height range is a key consideration when it comes do care beds, for example:
Do you require a standard height bed? These typically have a height adjustment of between 40cm to 80cm.
Or do you require a low bed that typically has a lower maximum height but can be lowered closer to the floor?
People often choose these for two reasons:
Crash mats are available as an accessory.
The second main consideration is the width of the bed. Standard bed platforms are typically 90cm wide and 200cm long. We supply a broad range of mattresses for this standard size.
We also stock wider beds that include a mattress platform of 120cm (30cm wider) these are useful for larger users or for users that prefer a wider bedframe for comfort purposes.
Before considering purchase it’s important to assess your own weight or the weight of the user of the bed. Our bed range includes beds with different maximum user weights from standard through to heavy duty or bariatric beds that can be used by a person who is over 50 stones in weight.
The heavy-duty beds tend to be more expensive than the standard beds so don’t buy a bed that is too higher specification than you need!
Profiling beds have a number of features:
Hospital beds commonly feature bed rails, side rails or commonly called cot sides. These are designed to be used to prevent a user from falling sideways out of the bed but care must be taken when using to make sure that the gaps between the mattress and the bed frame meet the safety guidelines.
