These electric low level beds have a mattress platform height of below 25cm. They are also electrically profiling and some are height adjustable.
The electric height adjustment means that the bed can be positioned at different heights appropriate for transfers, sleeping and for any care givers providing assistance.
Whilst caring for someone at floor level can provide a safer and more dignified solution, it can pose other risks, such as moving and handling injuries. If this is a concern, a height adjustable bed should be chosed in preference to a fixed-height low level bed.
If required, ensure that the bed provides sufficient access for a hoist.
