Overbed Tables

Overbed tables are, as the name suggests, tables that fit over the bed. These tables are usually height adjustable and some have added features such as small storage trays or drawers built into them, mirrors and tilting table tops. Overbed tables with tilting table tops are great for people who want to be able to read or write in bed without sitting fully upright. The use of these overbed tables are not restricted to use with hospital beds and can be used with any bed that has an elevated head section, as long as there is enough space under the bed to allow the base of the overbed table to fit under it.

Bed Side Rails

Side Rails for a home style hospital bed are an option and do not come standard. They come in adjustable length as pictured, half length or full length and are not only helpful as a safety feature to prevent patients from falling out of bed but they also provide a handhold for people who need to pull on something solid when repositioning themselves in bed. Side rails do not impede raising the head, feet or whole bed and can be dropped out of the way when not needed simply by flipping a lever near the base of the rails.

Trapeze Bars

Trapeze bars are important sickroom accessories designed to help patients change positions while in bed and to aid in transfer from wheelchair to bed with minimum attendant assistance. Trapeze units have a wide range of height adjustments and a hand bar to maximize patient accessibility. The unit can be installed quickly and easily on a stand to be used with any model bed or attached directly to most hospital style beds.
