Electric Beds for Domestic Use


Electric for Beds Domestic Use


Unfortunately we no longer supply electric beds for domestic use.

Electric bed categories

Electric beds fall into 2 categories, hospital and domestic, both having potential positive applications but equally both having limitations .We strongly recommend an initial assessment by one of our Occupational Therapists at an early stage if such a bed is being considered.

Hospital Electric Beds

Hospital Electric beds tend to be clinical in appearance and are designed to be functional,sturdy,mobile and easily cleaned.They always have a profiling action with individual control of the head and foot motors in addition to the vertical high/low or low/high facility .These movements assist with transfers on and off the bed and also make life easier and safer for carers of different heights.

Hospital beds usually have an option of cot sides and bed levers to assist with patient safety and or transfers.The high low facility also makes them very compatible with a variety of manual handling devices such as hoists,standaids and turnaids

Bed sizes are commonly 3ft wide with weight limits approx 20 stone but 4ft is possible with a greater weight capacity Application, Such beds can be of great help to many conditions at various stages,however equally there are occasions when an electric bed is not the solution to a set of problems.We strongly recommend you contact us and let one of our Occupational therapists discuss your individual case and let us advise you on what step to take next.

Electric Beds for Domestic Use

Unfortunately we no longer supply Electric Beds for Domestic Use.


For use with electric beds we do recommend the use of foam based mattresses rather than pocket sprung which don’t follow the contour of a profiling bed very well.

Options are:

  • medium or high risk pressure relief
  • waterproof or non waterproof
