What is a hospital bed for home use?

Hospital beds for home use are designed to provide mobility and orthopedic support for elderly and disabled individuals and their carers. The electric hospital style beds on sale below have two key functions: some are height adjustable to ease access and assist the carer in nursing the user; and all have an adjustable mattress platform to enable the user to reposition themselves. The adjustable platform has a backrest and legrest section, both can be raised and lowered by the user in the bed.

In some cases, your local council or NHS trust may be able to provide you with a temporary bed or funding to buy one yourself.
