Medical Beds For Sale

If you think you require a medical bed, there are a number of things to take into consideration first.  As medical beds are incredibly expensive, you may want to consider opting for a different type of bed or you may want to look into renting a medical bed instead.  It is important to first discuss this with your care provider, who will be best equipped to advise you on the range of options available to you and which best suit your needs.

Adjustable Beds instead of Medical Beds

If it is not necessary to purchase a medical bed and you are only looking for additional levels of comfort whilst being in bed, an adjustable bed may be a better option for you.  Adjustable beds are generally much cheaper than medical beds for sale and often have similar features, such as:

  • The ability to adjust the headrest
  • The ability to adjust the footrest
  • The ability to raise and lower the bed in its entirety
  • Electronic or remote controls to change the positions of the bed

Generally, the price of an adjustable bed will include the price of a mattress, which is not the case with medical beds for sale.

Renting Medical Beds

If it looks like you will only require a medical bed for a short period of time, you may want to consider renting the bed instead.  There is a range of companies that offer this service, and some of them will sell you the bed at a reduced price if it looks like you will be requiring the bed for much longer periods.

There are many reasons as to why you may require a medical bed at home for a short period of time, for example following a significant fracture, a stroke or the last few weeks of a terminal illness.

Medical Beds for Sale

Sometimes, it is necessary to find medical beds for sale.  This can happen, for example, in people with significant mental retardation whose family want to care for them at home.  Alternatively, people who are significantly obese and can no longer leave the bed may also require medical beds at home and would look at medical beds for sale rather than rent.

When you are looking at medical beds for sale, you will also need to purchase the mattress.  There are numerous different mattresses available that are specifically designed for certain illnesses.  For example, people who are likely to have to spend significant periods of time will be at elevated risk of developing bed sores.  For these people, an air mattress will generally be advised.  There are also mattresses specifically designed for obese people, or for people who have reduced lung function.

As you can see, there are certain situations in which you may be looking for medical beds for sale.  Generally, however, people would be advised to look into adjustable beds or renting medical beds first, unless specifically advised to purchase one by a health care provider.  This is mainly because of the very significant price of medical beds for sale.
