Top 5 Best Selling Hospital Beds of 2021

Kevin Cleary

Good night sleep is important and for those with medical needs that require the use of a hospital bed, sleep is doubly important. Not only do hospital beds allow for a good night sleep, but they can also help prevent medical issues such as skin breakdowns or bedsores. Since there are many different varieties on the market with different options, how do you go about picking one that benefits you? We here at HPFY have compiled five of the best-selling hospital beds this year to help you choose.

How to choose a proper Hospital Bed?

It may seem confusing and complicated to choose the proper hospital bed you may need. Believe it or not, it’s easier than you think. The first thing you need to consider is access for any aide or healthcare worker. Other factors include cost, performance, and last but not least comfort. While cost may be a determining factor, you should weigh the cost against the many potential benefits of owning a hospital bed can provide. When looking for a hospital or home care bed the most common types are:

Manual Hospital Bed

These are the most cost-effective and are recommended for when a healthcare attendant is available since the bed uses manual cranks to adjust the height and move the head up and down.

Full Electric Bed

This type of hospital bed is adjusted by pressing buttons on a control pad and may be suitable when an aide is not available and the patient can manipulate the buttons by themselves. Full electric bed can also be raised and lowered to make getting in and out of bed easier.

Semi-Electric Bed

With the same two motors of a fully electric bed to raise and lower the feet and head, these hospital beds use a manual crank to lower or raise the height of the bed. It can be the best of both worlds with lower cost and greater comfort or ease.

Other options you may want to look into are a low-rise hospital bed that can benefit those who may have trouble getting in and out of bed or a bariatric hospital bed for heavier patients.
