Hospital Bed/Medical Bed Mattress Options
At Homepro Medical, we sell and rent best in class homecare hospital beds and a variety of hospital mattress options. Our knowledge over the years has become unparalleled in recommending and providing the best medical bed mattress options that are designed and manufactured to accommodate the various position options available with hospital beds. They offer features such as exceptional comfort to the user, help in the prevention of wounds, and complement the bed on positioning.
What is the Perfect Hospital Bed Mattress?
The types of hospital bed mattresses or mattress pads we offer for home environments include foam prevention mattresses, innerspring mattresses, air mattress systems, bariatric extra wide mattresses, and mattress overlays.
For a hospital bed for the home, an inner spring mattress can be ideal if you are looking to achieve standard comfort and consistent rest at night. However, if you or your loved one is restricted to a bed for longer periods of time, a foam prevention mattress will offer exceptional comfort and help in the prevention of bed sores. For those who need wound prevention, medical air mattresses are ideal. They deliver the most pressure reduction and can help in the treatment and healing of pressure ulcers.
Bariatric mattresses are ideal for individuals who want or need extra width or require extra support for a higher weight capacity. Using one of the bariatric mattresses as a medical bed mattress does not sacrifice the treatment and comfort features and capabilities of our other air and foam mattresses.
We also offer hospital mattress overlays (or hospital bed mattress pad) to enhance patient circulation and prevent pressure ulcers. These overlays are designed to enhance patient comfort by minimizing the pressure applied to certain bony location of the body. Mattress gel overlays, often called gel mattresses, can be good for pressure reduction and keeping the body cool.
Size also matters when considering beds and hospital mattresses. Standard hospital mattresses are 36” wide. Standard bariatric mattresses are 42” wide. However, we also offer a great variety of twin hospital bed mattress options in addition to full, queen, king, and dual-king mattresses. Our Flex-a-bed and Transfer Master partners, for example, offer twin, full, and queen-sized mattresses for their various adjustable hospital bed sizes. Twin hospital bed mattresses are available in the form of low air loss, alternating pressure, and lateral rotation.
When renting in the New York City area, our medical air mattresses have become extremely popular for the treatment, management, and/or prevention of pressure ulcers and the aiding of circulation.

What Size is a Hospital Bed Mattress?
Hospital mattresses have a standard size of 36 inches wide x 80 inches long. The length of some mattresses may extend to 84 inches. Bariatric hospital beds use wider mattresses.
Will a Twin Mattress Fit on a Hospital Bed?
A standard size twin bed mattress is about 36 inches wide x 75 inches long. This is 5 inches shorter than a hospital bed mattress. Certain smaller twin mattresses may be 1.5 to 2 inches narrower (34 in. to 35.5 in.). So they will not fit on a hospital bed. To make sure the frame, mattress, and patient are compatible, the mattress much match the width of the bed frame.
Can You Use a Regular Mattress on a Hospital Bed?
It is generally not feasible to use a regular mattress on a hospital bed for various reasons. The mattress may not fit the size of a hospital bed for starters. Also, it will not bend if the hospital bed is an adjustable bed. Also, some hospital bed mattresses are designed to be more hygienic and longer-lasting than regular mattresses. They may require a cover that is fluid proof and easy to clean. Many regular mattresses will not provide the support a hospital mattress does and can cause pressure on vulnerable parts of the body, which may result in bed sores in some cases.
How Much Does a Hospital Mattress Cost?
The cost of a hospital mattress can vary widely depending on its size, quality, and purpose. Hospital mattress prices can range from less than $200 to over $5,000.
What is the Best Hospital Bed Mattress?
The best hospital mattress is not the same for every person. The optimum mattress depends on the patient’s physical and medical needs, in addition to their size and weight.
