Hospital beds are beds used for by patients who have been hospitalised for various reasons when in need in medical and health care. These beds often come with special features for added comfort and convenience to the patient and the caretaker.
The most common of these features include being able to adjust various variables of the hospital bed. These include the height (often referred to as high low hospitals beds), the head, the feet, adjustable side rails. Some come are electronically powered to make the process of making these adjustments to the hospital beds easier. The hi lo hospital beds offer the ability to raise or lower the bed to make it easier for the patients to get in and out of bed, or to help transfer them onto the bed itself from another source of mobility solution.
The bed base can be sectioned out into both the head and the foot, or the head, foot, and middle, whereby each section can be adjusted into different positions using a crank handle or electronically using a powered motor and controls. Adjusting the hi low hospital beds using these control is the most convenient as it is ideal for when the patient in question is required to be positioned in various ways for therapy or comfort.
While the term says hospital beds and predominantly used in hospitals,they can be used in just about any setting which where patient care is required from a health care facility to nursing homes, assisted and aged care facilities, outpatient clinics and also health care at home.
