A Useful Buying Guide for Electric and Adjustable Beds for the Household Setting
As you may have already heard, hospital beds are making their way out of the hospital and care facility setting and into households. This allows your loved one to experience the full benefits of an electric or adjustable bed without having to pay outstanding medical costs to stay in a facility.
So, if you are looking into a hospital bed for a family member, ask yourself: what type of bed fits his or her lifestyle in the most beneficial way possible?
Anyone that has had experience searching for and purchasing hospital beds knows that there are a considerable amount of customizable bed frames out there that you can choose from. Finding the best electric bed for you can be an difficult procedure, however this article will help you figure out the essentials and major factors that will influence your purchase to suit your loved one’s personal preference. After taking a look at some of the offers, you’ll start to make sense of the contrasts between different brands, and begin seeing which are the most noteworthy quality or which will work with best for your specific circumstance.
So let’s begin!
One of the important questions that you need to ask yourself or your bed manufacturer is how heavy and durable is the base? A portion of the better electric beds available, such as the Joerns Ultracare XT Bed, may be produced using better and heavier materials, however in the event that you move a considerable amount, a heavy bed may be hard to manage.
What works for you? How loud is the motor? Nowadays, the motors that are available are calmer and quieter than before, but still provide the necessary amount of power to support the bed itself. Try and look out for sealed casings, which tend to make the motor even quieter and will also minimize the need for lubrication or routine maintenance. Can the frame be utilized with your current headboard and casing? Then again is it sufficiently appealing by itself? This aspect is more of a customizable and preferential decision. While it may have a beneficial effect in regards of patient positioning, much of it is aesthetic.
The foam of the bed is just as important as its’ function. You should also search for a solid warranty that covers most, if not all, of the bed’s parts, rather than blanket lifetime warranties. This will end up saving you a significant amount of money in the long run.
But what about the mattress?
While your priority may lie in finding the most capable bed frame, give careful consideration to the mattress quality as well. Having the capacity to raise the feet or shoulder situating can enormously enhance one’s sleep, yet it’s only as effective as the mattress itself. Most importantly is where the mattress is made. Shockingly, most adaptable foam sold in the US is made in China, which has a tendency to break down after years of usage and isn’t quite sanitary. When you get a top notch flexible foam mattress to pair with your adjustable or electric bed, you will essentially get the best of both worlds – foam that curves to the formation of your spine, with a frame that can change in accordance with the requirements of your neck and muscles. Lastly, the mattress determines the overall comfort of the patient, so don’t skip out on finding a quality model.
