The best hospital bed for home use is quite simply a bed that meets all the care and mobility requirements of the user to improve their quality of life.

When you’re choosing a hospital care bed for your home it’s important to consider the appearance of the bed and how it will look in your bedroom. Hospital beds don’t have to look like the traditional, metal framed medical beds you might first think of.

Upholstered Hospital Bed

For example, the Opera Signature Comfort, as seen above, has a fully upholstered surround while maintaining the height adjustment and profiling functionality of a hospital bed. With a choice of headboards, upholstery and wood colours, this hospital bed can be fully personalised to suit you and your home.

Our whole range of profiling hospital beds and mattresses can be bought and installed by our team of UK wide engineers, usually with 2-3 days of purchase.
