Electric profiling beds include a mattress platform divided into two, three, or four parts that can independently incline to create a range of sleeping and resting positions for added comfort. A remote control handset can change mattress and bed settings. The patient can utilise this in bed or with a caregiver/assistant.
Electric profiling beds provide comfort when lying in bed and allow vertical movement in both directions to assist with getting in and out of bed.
The foundation of an electric adjustable profiling bed is into sections. By adjusting the angles and height of the base parts, the mattress may be contoured to sit the user up, prevent them from slipping down the bed, raise the user's legs, and many others.
The user or care staff can use a bedside handset to control these mattress parts. The benefit of adjustable beds is that they can accommodate various people. People frequently engage in a never-ending fight of arranging pillows at night to reach a body posture where they can rest comfortably. The solution is to use profiling beds.
Examples of medical conditions are back problems, breathing problems, and issues that cause fluid retention. People who are disabled or have mobility issues find it difficult to get out of bed.
Breathing and lung difficulties frequently prevent people from lying flat on their backs. Elevation often makes breathing easier for patients with lung problems like asthma because it allows the lungs to expand. Also, this reduces emotions of anxiety.
How Do I Select the Best Electric Profiling Bed for Me?
Users frequently choose hoist-accessible beds, which provide enough space for the legs of a hoist to go under the bed. Some beds have massage functions that can help with nerve problems.
The various forms of profiling beds:
Standard stature: The most popular type of profiling bed is a standard height profiling bed. In the lowest position, these beds are around 40cm off the floor, being comparable to the height of a typical divan bed. Elevated to the tallest point, they can reach approximately 80cm from the floor.
Low stature:Low-height profiling beds are adjustable to roughly 20cm from the floor. When side rails are not suited for users, this establishes a safe sleeping height and provides more flexibility when getting in and out of bed. , On the other hand, low-profile beds can only be raised to roughly 60cm in height, requiring a caregiver to bend over the bed to nurse the patient.
Height in one piece: All-in-one-height profiling beds combine low and standard-height beds into a single bed, thus the name. They offer a wide height range of roughly 20cm - 80cm, allowing users to benefit from a low sleeping/access height and a high nursing height.
Wide: It profiling beds are usually around 4ft wide and are perfect for customers needing more space in their beds. A four-foot-wide bed can be an extra-wide single bed or a tiny double bed. Profiling beds are also known as caring beds, nursing beds, medical beds, disability beds, dementia beds, community beds, care home beds, home care beds, adjustable height beds, high-low beds, and side rail beds.
