Hospital beds were originally designed for use in an acute hospital ward setting but variations are commonly supplied for users at home or in a care home setting. There primary functions are to assist the patient or user to adjust their position in bed. This has several patient benefits of increasing the user’s independence, reducing the complications of bedrest and improves the user’s mobility. The other key benefit of a hospital bed is to reduce manual handling issues and back injuries to staff or carers whilst making nursing tasks quicker to perform. The electric functions of the medical bed allow the carer to manage the patient or user without lifting or straining.
Our hospital beds for sale have a number of key features. The first being variable height adjustment. This feature allows the bed platform to raise and lower in order to allow the user to enter or exit the bedframe easily. The second key feature is an adjustable backrest that rises from a horizontal position to approximately 75 degrees. This helps the user find a comfortable position, reduces the need for many pillows and helps the user to breath easily or simply sit up to watch tv or eat a meal. The third core feature is the knee break function. The lower section of the bedframe adjusts in order to bend the knee position. This helps to prevent sliding down the bed whilst whilst helping to take pressure off the bottom area.
