Why lift chairs will help your recovery!

Have you or a loved one gone through hip or knee replacement surgery? Have you had a medical intervention in your abdominal area that has weakened your core? In those cases, Mediplus Mobility’s lift chairs for sale and for rent could be a great tool to help you recover.

Lets begin by dispelling a common misconception about medical lift chairs. Many prospective customers have approached us inquiring why lift chairs are pricier than La-z-boy-style loungers if “they’re the same thing”. That is not the case. The main difference between a comfort lounger and a lift chair is the later’s ability to help you up to a comfortable standing position. Lift chairs come in two, three and infinite position configurations. What they all have in common though, is the fact that they will assist an individual in going from a sitting to a standing position with ease. Their slow-moving upwards tilt is a safe way of relieving pressure on a patient’s knees, hips and core while easing their movement. serta lift chair

Beyond being able to move an individual to a standing position, the backrests of lift chairs can recline — in many cases all the way down to a horizontal position) and the leg rests can come up or down at the touch of a button. There are slight — but important– differences between stair lifts in the market:

Two-position lift chair: The most basic type of lift chair will move to a semi-reclining position, where the backrest will move back as the footrest will come up. It comes equipped with one motor that operates both functions simultaneously.

Three-position lift chair: Three-position lift chairs are the intermediate category, where the chair can move to semi-reclining position as well as napping position (where the backrest moves down further and the footrest comes up even higher). Three-position medical lift chairs also work with one motor.

Infinite-position lift chair: The most versatile lift-chair category, infinite position chairs are operated by two independent motors– meaning that the backrest and footrest of the chair function independently. Whether you’re seeking to find the perfect reading, napping or sleeping position– these lift chairs can accommodate all your comfort and positioning requirements.

Mediplus Mobility proudly distributes the top lift chair brands in the world. We offer floor models as well as lift chairs customized to your style and decor– vinyl, fabric and suede-like texture along with dozens of alluring colors are some of your options. And we deliver quick!

Our team looks forward to hearing from you and helping you find a great lift chair that will suit both your style and needs for sale or for rent.

How to accessorize your home hospital bed

Home hospital beds for sale or home hospital beds for rent come with different sets of features included in every device. But, when it comes to electric home hospital beds, there are three features that are common to most of them in the market. Fully electric home hospital beds can be lowered or raised as a whole (for ease of access by both the patient and the caregiver), their backrests can be brought up (many times up to almost a 90 degree angle) and the legrest area will raise and lower as well (generally at the knees).

But what can enhance your experience with a brand new home hospital bed? The accessories. There exist dozens of different products that can complement your hospital bed and make it as comfortable as possible for you or a loved one.

1. Mattresses: A mattress will be the main deciding factor when it comes to finding the right level of comfort for you. In foam, gel, and air configurations– make sure you research exactly what kind of surface you need to be resting on just as soon as you purchase or rent the hospital bed.

2. Railings: Most rental beds come with the option of long or short side rails for beds. Many individuals and professionals have chosen long rails in the past in order to prevent falls. However, more and more, professionals have become aware of the risk of entrapment that long rails can represent for older patients especially. That’s why, you will notice that when it comes to side rail options, most beds in the market will present shorter versions of them.

3. Bed Coverings: All home hospital beds delivered by Mediplus Mobility come with a brand-new, never-before opened mattress cover. The cover is crucial in guaranteeing the hygiene and preserving the integrity of the beds that we proudly retail and rent. Additionally, individuals can choose to purchase fitted sheets that will best fit the larger, twin-sized mattress that usually accompany home hospital beds.

4. Trapeze: These triangular-shaped bars are a convenient addition to your electric hospital bed because they can help you change positions in bed or ease the transfer in and out of it.

These options are just some of the many considerations anyone looking for great home hospital beds for sale or for rent should take into account. At Mediplus Mobility, we look forward to guiding you or your loved ones through home hospital bed accessories and helping you to narrow down which additions to it will serve you best.
