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.

The latest and greatest electric home hospital beds in the market come standard with three important features to facilitate the recovery and well-being of patients. Firstly, their backrests can be controlled to move up and down. The downwards position is ideal for sleeping, napping and resting whereas the upwards position is great for eating, reading, watching TV and carrying out other activities.

Caregivers will also find the home hospital bed’s downwards motion very convenient as it facilitates transfers between different devices– from a bed to a wheelchair for example. They will also benefit from the bed’s upwards motion when it comes to providing personal care to the patient.

Patients looking to purchase a bed instead– especially those suffering from respiratory ailments– will want to consider looking at beds that feature the Trendelenburg position– a forward tilt of the bed that allows for comfortable rest assisting with proper breathing.
