SonderCare Learning Center
Typically, when people imagine hospital beds they conjure up a very general opinion about what they look like. Sometimes, this opinion is formed by movies or news reports that depict a very standard version of a hospital bed. If you’ve had the unfortunate need to stay overnight in a hospital you would have slept in a hospital bed and that too would have formed an opinion. The truth is, institutional hospital beds have been made in a similar fashion for many years and they don’t necessarily meet the exact needs and comfort level that patients require. Also, there are many different types of hospital beds to explore as well as many accessories that cause a bed to look much different than most people are used to seeing.
The realm of hospital beds and patient care beds includes many variants and innovations based on research and feedback. This is the story of SonderCare’s line of hospital beds as well. Read on to learn more about many types of hospital beds, how they work and what actually makes them so different.
All contemporary hospital beds are versatile, and patients can adapt them to their changing needs. What separates the different types of hospital beds is what powers their functions. There are three types of hospital beds: manual, semi-electric, and fully-electric.
All the hospital beds in the SonderCare line are fully electric, meaning they have functions that increase the ease-of-use and comfort for all people. Patients and clients who don’t have the physicality or strength to operate a manual crank can move their bed independently with a SonderCare full-electric bed.
SonderCare beds come in three different models, each fully functional to meet the care needs of clients with sophisticated aesthetics that look at home in any living space:
Hospital models are much more suitable for the comfort needs of patients in recovery than ordinary beds. However, not everyone who would benefit from a care bed has the same comfort needs, which is why you can adjust the bed and its features to suit your particular requirements.
One advantage hospital beds have over ordinary home beds is that they can adjust their height, as well as the head and the foot of the bed. Many patients who are awake in bed prefer to elevate their head, feet, and knees for therapeutic reasons and comfort. When sleeping, many patients require a flat, level surface to get the rest they need; when resting while awake, they can adjust to a seated position to read or watch television. Different models bring different settings for posture adjustment.
There is a wide range of hospital beds available today, all with different styles, designs, and features to fit a wide array of budgets. While virtually all hospital beds can offer some comfort and relief, less expensive beds will often forgo some of the safety, style, and advanced positioning features.
SonderCare hospital beds are readily available for use in homes and private facilities, combining the functionality of a healthcare center with the comfort of an ordinary bed for private settings. With luxurious looks and relaxing adjustable features, our beds are available in several sizes and have many helpful accessories that don’t feel like medical equipment at all.
The best hospital beds have luxury elements to bring more options and adaptability. Features like stylish headboards and footboards, multi-height assist rails, and various sizes mean patients and their families can get the right model for their needs.
Typically, a hospital at home setup is most frequent in elderly populations who are suffering from a range of ailments and mobility issues. For instance, John Hopkins’ home hospital program has treated more than 1,200 patients with a range of clinical characteristics and an average age of 77.
Hospital services at home that allow patients to receive standard clinical treatment at home have proven to be successful in minimizing complications while reducing treatment costs by 30 percent or more, leading to many attempts to encourage their use. But broad implementation of the hospital at home model, at least in the United States has been hampered by some physician concerns about legal risk, and by the refusal of some insurance firms, to reimburse providers for home service provisions.
