A hospital bed in your home can be invaluable for anyone who is recovering from a serious injury or illness, lives with mobility issues, or needs to be able to adjust their sleeping position to prevent bedsores, open up airways, improve circulation and more.
Here at Copper Star Home Medical, we have a wide range of commercial-grade hospital beds for rent and purchase. These specialized beds come in a variety of styles designed to meet the unique needs of each user, and the beds can be further customized with accessories such as over-the-bed tables, safety rails, and adjustable mattresses.
Bed rails are a must-have accessory for anyone at risk of falling from their hospital bed. Also known as safety rails, these devices either slide under the mattress and secure to the bed frame using a series of straps or are bolted directly onto the bed frame.
Bed rails are highly effective in preventing accidental falls from a hospital bed, and they can also help to discourage patients from leaving their beds without assistance. These low-cost safety devices also serve double duty as a place where patients can attach their power bed control, call button, and even a pouch for their cell phone, magazines, or television remote.
Overbed tables are another essential accessory for anyone who needs to spend an extended amount of time in a hospital bed.
Modeled after the overbed tables provided in traditional hospital settings, these tables come in adjustable styles, allowing users to set the height and angle that best suits their specific needs. These tables can serve as a surface for eating meals, working on crossword puzzles, or simply storing items that patients want to have close by.
Most overbed tables are equipped with swivel castors, making it easy for patients and their caregivers to move the table aside to transfer in and out of bed, perform personal care, or change the linens. These tables can also be used over an easy chair, making them a great investment for anyone who wants to remain independent in their own home.
It’s common for hospital bed users to need assistance with sitting up, lying down, and transferring in and out of the bed.
At Copper Star Home Medical, we stock a variety of devices designed to make transferring in and out of a hospital bed easier, safer, and more comfortable. Known as trapeze devices, these non-powered aides give patients a study handhold that can be used to steady themselves while moving around in the bed, transferring to a standing or seated position, or even while using a bedpan.
Not only do trapeze devices help to promote independence in hospital bed users, but they can also cut down on strain injuries to caregivers! So we invite you to shop our products online or visit one of our spacious showrooms for a wide variety of hospital beds and accessories. All of our staff members are knowledgeable and ready to assist, and we look forward to meeting you!
