What benefits can an adjustable bed height provide?
The capability to lower and raise the height of a bed can offer benefits to those who use the bed daily and their carers. Setting the bed to the correct height is particularly beneficial to those with limited mobility. This can help get in and out of bed, especially for those who can self-transfer into a wheelchair. The function can also be used to assist an individual in achieving a semi-standing position. Reducing the height of the bed can also offer increased security against falls due to the position of the bed is closer to the floor.
Some beds offer a shallow height, such as only 21cm, from the floor and, when used with a padded mat at the side of the bed, can offer more excellent protection from injury. For example, those prone to leaving their bed unexpectedly at night. Raising the height of the bed to an ergonomic height is particularly useful for carers as it allows them to care for their clients at a safe working height, therefore reducing their risk of back strain and associated injury.
