5 Benefits Of An Electric Bed

1. Circulation

Electric beds are adjustable at the head and feet positions. Moving them can improve circulation for someone who is bed bound for long periods. This action also reduces bedsores, fluid build-up in the legs, joint and back strain and a range of other complications associated with being bed bound for long periods.

2. Comfort for the Patient

There are benefits for patients associated with electric beds that do not apply to traditional beds. Aside from being more comfortable due to less bed sores and irritations, electric beds also allow for patients for to change position for different tasks. Reading, watching and eating are all easily done from the bed without any physical effort, keeping the patients supported and comfortable.

3. Care Giver Assistance

Being an in home carer is a physically demanding job. Over time, this can lead to problems for the carer such as back pain, exhaustion and joint pain. By using an electric bed, carers can position the patient in a way that is safe and supportive electrically rather than physically while they eat, get changed, change dressings etc.

4.  Design

The bed is made to look like a normal bed and not like a hospital bed. This “normal” design can have a calming influence on a home and is less dramatic than a traditional hospital bed. We have a range of electric beds in different sizes available for sale at Beechfield Healthcare.
