What Is A Hospital Bed?
A Hospital Bed is a specialty bed that features adjustments to raise and lower the head and foot sections of the bed. These are the standard features that a hospital bed frame will have, but there are a variety of beds that have more positions and functions available. A key function that is always recommended is the base adjustment. This adjustment raises the entire bed frame up and down allowing for easy transfer from in and out of the bed. When the patient is getting into the bed frame, the frame can be lowered. By lowering the frame the user is then able to sit safety into the bed as well as in the correct position. By not having this feature, shorter users can not lay down in the center of the bed, and as a result, they risk falling out of the bed frame. When getting out of the bed frame, users with trouble standing from a sitting position can raise the base of the bed to stand up easily. Hospital Beds that have all 3 of these features (Head, Foot, & Base) are called full electric hospital beds. The full electric hospital beds are the most popular beds on the market.
