A lot of clients ask about if we recommend buying a manual or electric beds. Both of these models share the same basic features/functions with almost an identical bed frame, but each model has its own unique advantageous and disadvantageous. We will summarize these features below.
Manual hospital beds
Manual hospital beds have multiple advantages which include:
- Lower purchase price
- Reduced risk of malfunction
- Lower maintenance cost
Main disadvantage of a manual bed is the need for assistance to adjust the bed if the patient is bedridden.
Electric hospital beds
Electric hospital beds feature an easy adjustment using the hand pendant.
- Higher purchase price
- Higher maintenance cost and risk of malfunction
All of the beds offered in our hospital bed rental program are fully electric and you are 100% covered if there is any problem with the bed during the rental period. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.
