A hospital bed is an excellent investment for the home when a person has a respiratory or circulatory condition or is unable to move and function as they generally need. All of these circumstances require special positioning when sleeping or resting. If a person has problems getting up and down from a flat position, this type of bed can offer support and much more.
Having a hospital bed at home will help care givers as well. It can be helpful in situations such as cleaning and treating wounds in a flat position, changing incontinence products, or finding a unique position to alleviate pressure on various areas of the body.
How to Compare Your Options
Both a full and a semi-electric hospital bed can be a good choice depending on the situation. The biggest difference is in the amount of control you have and cost. Beds like the Invacare full electric hospital bed can move into more positions with the flip of a switch or a button. A semi-electric hospital bed does not offer as many motorized positioning options but it has a lower cost than other full styles.
Which one should you buy? The more support you need in getting up or moving around in the bed, the more important it is to choose a fully functional bed. This alleviates a lot of the lifting and positioning for those who are unable to move at all. At Homepro Medical we carry everything from classic semi-electric and full-electric hospital beds to premium long-term care hospital beds.
