Why Are The Headboards & Footboards On A Hospital Bed So Important?

Like many conventional beds, hospital beds have a footboard at the foot end and a headboard at the head end. They are needed to change the beds, anchor the frame, and have a spot for fastening other devices. These pieces also prevent damage to the walls in the patient’s private room or their care facilities. 

The headboards must be mounted securely to the bed frame so that the patient can use an overhead trapeze helper bar. Other helpful features, including overbed reading lights, make the bed more comfortable for the user. The footboard may support medical equipment, including pumps for air mattresses and those used for venous therapy.

Much of the institutional look comes from how, on hospital beds, headboards and footboards are more than just anchors. The control panel on the footboard allows the staff to make adjustments to the bed and set various alarms. There is also typically space at the foot of the bed for storing the patient’s chart.

What Are The Different Types Of Headboards & Footboards?

You’ll likely see a variety of styles for hospital bed headboards and footboards. Many manufacturers focus on functionality for an institutional setting in which healthcare professionals will use them. Some have bumpers with foam padding to protect the patient or walls, while others use clunky plastic. Aesthetics are not a priority for many hospital bed manufacturers, and as such, the headboards and footboards of their products look out of place in most homes.

The headboard is part of a bedroom’s design, so what a private purchaser chooses can have a design impact on their surroundings. SonderCare is changing how clients see hospital beds by making the headboards and footboards in a traditional style, using classic and contemporary wood and fabric elements.

What Can You Expect From SonderCare Headboards & Footboards?

On SonderCare luxury home hospital beds, the headboard is taller than the footboard. It helps the bed fit the aesthetic of any home or private room in an assisted living facility. Our beds still have all the features a patient should expect from their care bed. The materials we use are light and durable to protect their investment and ensure it retains their integrity.

We also give our customers two choices of bed design: Espresso Woodgrain or Slate Gray Crypton Upholstery. The elegantly designed headboards and footboards match the rails to fit any room décor, creating comfort and well-being for users and family members.

Headboards and footboards are decisive for the appearance of a bed since they are the first things that catch the eye. With SonderCare luxury hospital beds, you can choose the color of headboard and footboard that suits your room’s decor.
