What Qualities to Look for in a Home Hospital Bed?

home hospital bed  is one of the most important purchases you will ever make. The right bed can transform your quality of life and comfort. But finding the right home hospital bed is not as straightforward as buying an ordinary consumer bed.


In this article, we're going to look at five factors that you should consider when choosing a home hospital bed for yourself or a loved one.


How many adjustments does the bed have?

Most beds described as home hospital beds have at least head and foot adjustments: the upper and the lower section of the bed's surface are adjustable up and down. These adjustments are great for people who need support to sit up in bed and for people with medical conditions that benefit from sleeping in an upright position.


How are the adjustments powered?

The adjustments on a home hospital bed can be manual, semi-electric, or fully electric. Beds with manual adjustments have no external power source: they rely on muscle power. Semi-electric beds use electric motors on some of their adjustments. Full-electric adjustable beds use motors on all adjustments.


How well-made is the bed?

The quality of home hospital beds is variable. We would advise hospital bed buyers to inspect beds in person to assess the quality of their construction.


What is the bed's weight capacity?

Adjustable beds have an upper limit to the amount of weight they can support. Maidesite MD series hospital beds support up to 300 lbs. We also make bariatric hospital beds for heavier patients that support weights of up to 750 lbs.


Will the bed fit with your home decor?

Home hospital beds are medical equipment, and some manufacturers make no effort to conceal the fact. Their beds are instantly identifiable as hospital beds and do not blend in well with home decor. If the appearance of the bed and the bedroom is important to you, look for an adjustable bed designed to conceal the electrical components and adjustment mechanisms.
