The different types of Hospital beds
Electric Bed-The basic modern hospital bed is called an electric bed. They are the beds most often seen in city hospitals or major town hospitals.
Stretchers-The types of beds you see in a hospital emergency room unit are typically stretchers. These beds are designed for mobility.
Low Beds-Low beds are specifically designed for those patients who are liable to fall off beds and cause injury, despite the restraint of the side rails.
Low Air Loss Beds-A low air loss bed is a type of bed which has special cushions and a system designed to blow air into sacs within the mattress. These beds are designed for burn patients and patients with skin grafts by keeping them cool and dry.
