Home Care Beds & Support Products
Proper home care bed and support mattress equipment is critical to having a pleasant home care experience with patients confined to bed much or all of the time.
|Home care beds are adjustable, providing comfortable positioning for in-bed activities. Head and foot sections may operate independently, or in tandem. Home care beds come in various models, from economy to luxury.
Differences among beds include: electric / manual controls, adjustment capabilities (head and foot sections), height and dimensions, mattress quality, options, features, construction, and styles.
The Hoyer lift is an assistive device that allows patients to be transferred into chairs or beds with the use of hydraulic power. It is specifically recommended for moving patients with very limited mobility and or consciousness.
Pressure ulcers, or bedsores, are a common problem and concern for patients who spend long periods of time in bed.
A variety of mattresses and mattress overlays are available to both treat and prevent bed sores. Ask your doctor or home care equipment provider for more information. Medicare and most private insurance normally cover these important products.
