Choosing the right Hospital Bed
If you are setting up a homecare situation, a Hospital Bed is an important part of the equation. Hospital Beds come in three variations, with beds ranging from basic and economical to more advanced models. Not sure where to start? Here are some of the possible choices:
Hospital Bed Frame - This is the first choice in a three part equation that includes frame, mattress and accessories. The three choices are: Manual, Semi-Electric and Fully Electric.
Manual Hospital Beds - All functions such as raising and lowering the head or adjusting the height of the bed are done with a hand-crank. These hospital Beds are appropriate when there is someone around who can make the adjustments and when cost is a factor.
Semi-Electric Hospital Beds - A semi-electric bed is a choice that increases function and independence while still being sensitive to cost. A Semi-Electric Hospital Bed has electric controls for raising and lowering the head and feet, while the height of the bed is adjusted manually with a crank.
Full-Electric Hospital Beds - These beds do it all with a touch of a button, giving the bed-user full control and independence. All adjustments are made through the electric controls. These beds are ideal for the caregiver, as all the adjustments can be performed with one hand. And, incase of a power outage, both the Semi and Full-Electric Beds can be adjusted manually.
Mattresses - Available in foam all the way up to luxury inner coil spring models. Factors in this decision would be the length of need for the hospital bed, daily duration of time spent in the bed and the needs of the patient.
Accessories - Don't forget the overbed table for snacks of the trapeze to assist with transfers. Hospital bed accessories help complete your homecare environment, making it more comfortable and functional.
