Whether you’re recovering from an illness or injury, living with a disability, or dealing with age-related mobility issues, a good night’s rest is critical to your overall health and well-being. The right hospital bed, also known as an adjustable bed, can make all the difference when it comes to enjoying safe, restorative sleep.
Consumer-Grade Hospital Beds Combine Design and Functionality
Thankfully, there are now several high-quality hospital beds that are specially designed for home use. This means you can find adjustable beds in a full range of sizes from twin to California king, making it easy to replace your existing bed without compromising on size or comfort.
In fact, many of the hospital beds we stock here at Alpine Home Medical Supplies, such as the Flexabed Premier, are designed to work with most standard headboards, making it easy to integrate into your existing bedroom decor. These modern hospital beds also accept standard-sized bed linens, so you don’t need to choose between an adjustable bed and your favorite sheet sets.
Enhanced Elevating and Massage Features
While the right hospital bed can make transferring in and out easier and safer thanks to user-controllable height settings, many adjustable beds come with enhanced features. These features include:
- Massage functions
- Heated mattresses
- Memory foam mattresses
- Gel-core mattresses to minimize pressure points
- Firm mattress borders for easy transfers
Trendelenburg, Reverse Trendelenburg and Cardiac Positions
Along with safety features such as integrated flip-down rails and height controls for self-transfers, several consumer-grade hospital beds can be adjusted to support a range of therapeutic positions including the Trendelenburg and cardiac positions.
One of the most widely used features of a hospital bed is the Trendelenburg position, a 15–30-degree inclined bed position that’s frequently used to treat hypotension, improve postural drainage, and reduce swelling in the feet, ankles and legs by elevating the lower part of the body higher than the torso and head.
Conversely, the reverse Trendelburg position, which elevates the head higher than the feet on an incline ranging from 15 to 30 degrees, is often recommended for those living with respiratory conditions such as COPD, asthma, and sleep apnea. This position may also be comfortable for those living with certain cardiac issues.
