    Luxury Full Electric

    Definition - Luxury Hospital Bed

    In general, a luxury hospital bed has all of the functionality of a standard full electric hospital platform but comes standard with an upgraded 10" foam innerspring mattress. By comparison, standard full or semi electric hospital platforms come with 7" innerspring or foam mattress. Luxury's are also distinguished from standard hospital platform by the base unit the upgraded mattress rests upon. Standard hospital platform frames are metallic and have to be assembled in two pieces. As you can see below luxury platforms do not. Luxury base units are one piece and padded.

    Bradford Medical Supply is one of the few companies that offers luxury hospital beds as rentals. Currently my preferred vendor of choice for several reasons which I will detail later is FlexaBed.
