You or a loved one may have reached that time in life where due to illness or recovery from an illness you require a hospital bed and mattress at home. Hospital beds can be both manual or electric however electric beds may be easier for most people to use. Our range of motorised beds come with 3 major functions where the patient may raise or lower the head, knees, or foot of the bed. This may help the person in bed to breathe easier and be more comfortable.

Also the bed can be raised or lowered vertically, making it more comfortable for the person working with someone in bed. All this can be done by the patient or carer through the handle control unit of the bed.
