Home Hospital Beds are essential for bedridden patients because they offer advantages over regular beds. They improve comfort for long term patients, and their features make it easy to adjust specific parts of the bed. When people spend extended periods of time in bed, the pressure exerted on their bodies causes skin to be compressed between bone and the bed, which causes pressure sores. Home hospital beds enable users to adjust the bed, letting them shift the pressure from one part of their body to another. Moreover, patients at risk for bedsores should also take care while choosing mattresses, and select one that will reduce friction
Patients can experience difficulty getting in and out of bed. A home hospital bed can improve this because they can adjust their height, allowing patients to get out of bed with relative ease. People experiencing hip and knee problems, for instance, typically look to be seated with those joints at an angle greater than 90 degrees; this helps them comfortably get into a standing position. Hospital beds allow users to do so with safety and ease. Caregivers often experience back pain from frequent bending to administer care. Hospital beds enable caregivers to elevate their patients to a level at which they can care for them without straining their own bodies in the process.
Hospital beds allow users to adjust the bed to better position their head and feet. These changes allow for movement as well as periodic change to the pressure points on the body, thereby improving the patient’s blood circulation. Hospital beds are a requirement for people who require monitoring or restraint. For people who are at risk of falling out of bed – for instance, dementia or other impairments – the bed rails on hospital beds reduce the risk of injuries due to falls. Full-length rails are a necessity for some, others use rails as an assist while getting in and out of bed, or to re-position themselves in the bed. These patients do not require the restraint of a full-length rail. Most of our hospital beds are available with both full and half-rail options.
