Home Hospital Beds from Reliable Medical Supply
If your doctor has prescribed a home hospital bed, you probably need it for proper positioning during sleep and bed rest. The most common diagnoses for a hospital bed are congestive heart failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), reflux, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, leg fracture, cancer, quadriplegia, various neurological diseases and congenital birth disorder/diseases. You can also use a home hospital bed to assist the transfer into and out of your bed.
There are three basic types of home hospital beds: full electric, semi electric and manual. Full and semi-electric beds have the same electric functions for raising and lowering the head and foot sections. The difference between the two is that a full electric frame height adjusts with an electric motor and the frame height on a semi is adjusted with a hand crank. A manual bed has hand adjustments for all three functions.
Full electric beds are difficult to get funded through insurance carriers and require a prior authorization if it is a covered option. The electric frame height adjustment is not usually considered medically necessary. Many people will not need to change the frame height once the bed is set to the proper height for the user. Some people will adjust the frame height higher or lower so they will be transferring “downhill” either into or out of the bed.
