Mattress & Hospital Bed Rental – FAQs
What Is a Hospital Bed or Medical Bed?
A hospital bed is a feature-filled, medical-grade piece of equipment designed for use by people who are confined to bed for long periods of time and those who have restricted mobility. Its design takes the needs of both patient and carer into account, offering comfort, support, and assistance otherwise unavailable to them. It can be used in a hospital setting, as well as in nursing and care homes, residential property, and sometimes even in holiday accommodation.
What are Hospital Mattresses?
Hospital mattresses are medical grade equipment for use with a specially designed hospital bed. There are various kinds of hospital mattresses, the most common of which are air mattresses and foam mattresses. The air mattress for pressure sores is designed for patients with limited mobility precisely because they are more vulnerable to pressure sores, bedsores, and pressure ulcers. Both foam and air mattresses ultimately improve mobility and comfort levels.
Do Hospital Beds Need Special Mattresses?
Hospital grade mattresses should always be used with specially designed hospital beds, so that patients can enjoy the full range of features they offer. For patients confined to their bed or with little mobility, these mattresses make a world of difference. Having gone through the trouble of buying or availing of a hospital bed rental service, finding the right mattress to suit it is the next logical step.
What Features Should a Hospital Bed Have?
Any hospital bed hire product must provide high levels of quality and comfort. Medical grade beds, mattresses, and accessories offer peace of mind to patients, carers, and their households. Because patients have different needs, it’s important to access the features and options that would suit them best, be they low profiling design, automated elevation, or budget-friendly prices.
Do You Stock Beds with Sides?
Cot sides prevent falls and injury, and they’re especially useful at night, when carers may not be near. They can be used with elderly patients, children, fidgety sleepers, as well as patients with cognitive impairment. We stock these accessories, in addition to crash mats, fall management systems, knee walkers, and grab rails.
What Is a Bariatric Bed?
Bariatric hospital beds are profiling beds that extend lengthwise and sideways. They provide high levels of comfort, allowing patients to turn and users to manoeuvre them more easily. They are suitable for people of any body shape, with higher weight capacity. They can be used to aid rehabilitation and mobilisation for patients who are bedbound. And they also make caring for the individual easier for nurses and home carers. However, they also tend to be pricier than standard hospital beds, so bariatric hospital bed rental may be preferable to buying.

What are the Different Types of Mattress?
We stock pressure relieving mattress, overlay mattresses, crash mats, rotational mattresses, and ulcer prevention mattresses, and we’re here to advise on the model best suited to your requirements.
How Do Pressure Relieving Mattresses Work?
Pressure relieving mattresses can lower the risk of pressure sores by redistributing pressure across the body and protecting pressure points. When you lie down, some parts bear more of the burden than others, and doing this for extended periods of time can lead to sores. As the name suggests, these can be very painful. An air mattress is designed specifically to take some of the strain off these points, preventing bedsores and enhancing comfort.
