Choosing the right Hospital Bed

Hospital Beds are twin size beds with a sleep surface of roughly 35" x 80". Hospital Beds are not available in Queen and King sizes but if you need extra length, extensions are available for several models. Hospital Beds generally come with a weight capacity of 450lbs. Bariatric Hospital Beds are also available for patients who require larger weight capacities and wider sleep surface.

Hospital beds are shipped unassembled, but the 4 main pieces can easily be connected without tools. The foot section weighs about 75 lbs but the rest parts are fairly light. The mattress and bed rails may or may not be included with the bed. If you need to buy a mattress, you can choose from standard coil springs, foam, and air mattresses.
