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. Their 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 medical beds allow the carer to manage the patient or user without lifting or straining.
Height adjustment is a feature allows the bed platform to raise and lower in order to allow the user to enter or exit the bedframe easily.
