The Benefits of a Bariatric Hospital Bed

Category: Hospital Beds
September 25, 2020

Sometimes a regular bed doesn’t cut it. If you’re having trouble finding a sleep solution for yourself, a bariatric patient or an overweight loved one, a bariatric hospital bed can be a great solution. Take a look at some of the benefits of a bariatric hospital bed to learn why many people opt for this mobility solution.

Benefit #1: More Space

The average king-sized bed has a length of 80 inches. A bariatric hospital bed, however, can be extended even further, allowing for extra space to move around and reposition yourself. In that way, these beds offer improved comfort and stability to those who need mobility equipment with a higher weight capacity.

Benefit #2: Less Risk of Injury

Bariatric hospital beds come with controls and adjustment options for raising and lowering different parts of the equipment. This can provide support for those who have added difficulty getting in and out of bed, lowering the risk of injury. These adjustable controls can be operated by the bed user, caregiver, or family member. 

Benefit #3: Easy to Relocate

Need to move your bed to a new location? Whether you’re transferring a patient to a different home or you simply want to move the bed into a different room or level of the house, you can. Bariatric hospital beds contain wheels so they can be moved from one place to another. 

Benefit #4: Can Be Purchased or Rented

Recovery is a primary goal for bariatric patients, and if you’re already on the road there, you may not need this specialty bed forever. Whether that’s the case for you or you’d simply rather avoid making a significant financial commitment to a bed right now, renting a bariatric hospital bed in Maryland is certainly an option. For those looking to use the bed long-term, purchasing one might make the most sense. Luckily, Freedom Mobility has beds available for rent and for sale, and we offer financing to customers who qualify.
