Invacare Hospital Beds FAQ & Buying Guide

How big are hospital beds?

Typically a standard size. It depends on which model of hospital bed you buy. But typically 90cm wide by 2 metres long which is similar to a traditional single bed size. But wider beds at 120cm wide are often used for Bariatric patients. Most hospital beds in residential care environments are these sizes. The bed you use will depend largely on your needs and mobility capabilities. Interestingly, the trend is moving towards smaller hospital beds. This is because many hospitals are now placing greater emphasis on user comfort and mobility, and it's thought that smaller beds promote these goals better than full-sized beds.

It is also much more common now for care needs to be fulfilled at home, making smaller hospital beds the ideal choice for those who do not have the space for big beds.

The flexible design of Invacare hospital beds means that the height and the backrest and knee break sections of the bed can be electrically adjusted to accommodate patients needs and position meaning that you don’t have to worry so much about the size of the bed you are purchasing.

Benefits of using a Hospital Bed

Easier for Caregivers to Provide Help

Hospital beds are designed with the caregiver in mind. The easy functionality and adjustability of a hospital bed makes it easier and quicker for caregivers to help you get positioned comfortably, move around or change your position as needed without the need to physically move you that would otherwise be required when helping someone who cannot fully assist themselves due physical constraints such as weakness caused by disease/injury.

A Good Night's Sleep

Sleeping well is imperative for your health and wellbeing, and can aid quicker recovery from illness and injury. The most important thing to do for a good night’s sleep is to find the right position. Whether you have mobility or health issues, getting comfortable in your own bedroom and finding your preferred sleeping style can be challenging. Invacare hospital beds are designed to adjust to your height and position to the most optimal. Combine this with comfortable double pillows or keep these at your bedside as a reserve.

At Home Care

An Invacare bed is both adjustable and portable making it the perfect bed for providing at home care. It can be easily adjusted by a caregiver using the hand remote control meaning it can be tailored to suit your individual needs.

Our users tend to love this motorized functionality.

Improved Safety

Hospital beds are designed specifically to be safe. The side rails can be adjusted to lock to prevent fall risk and keep you secure. The rails can also be adjusted to make transferring in and out of bed either with the help of a carer or with the assistance of lifters hoists and slings that bit easier.
