Our electric beds are ideal for hospitals, aged care facilities like nursing homes, or for home care. At the touch of a button, you can electrically elevate your back or legs, which allows for any position from sitting to lying flat, making your stay in bed much more comfortable. You’ll never want to sleep on anything else!
Mac’s Metalcraft recognises the utmost importance of safety, strength and durability. It goes without saying electric beds have to be safe, whether they are used for patients in hospital, for the elderly in nursing homes or for those who are cared for at home, but they also must address health and safety issues for medical staff or carers. They must be able to withstand the day to day rigours of hospital or home care, and be built to last.
Our low height electric bed, the Mac-1, features electric Hi-Lo, an electric backrest, toe brake total lock castors and drop in headboard. It rises straight, so there’s no damage to walls from horizontal lifting.
Our Mac-2 floor level beds, as its name implies, has the great advantage of being able to be lowered to an ultra low height of 11cm. This electric bed is a very practical alternative to beds with safety side rails, which are increasingly being discouraged as a home care or hospital alternative. Using the Mac-2 means a much lower risk of injury due to falling from bed.
Another advantage of the Mac-2 electric bed, and something that no other floor bed can offer, is an auto-retractive backrest. As the backrest is raised from the horizontal to the vertical, the lower edge of the panel moves away from the occupant towards the head of the bed. This acts to relieve pressure on the lumbar region and lessens the risk of any associated lower back pain. The Mac-2 also features the Trendelenburg position and lounge chair position and can be easily folded to allow for moving.
These electric beds feature a smooth, powder coated surface for infection control and easy cleaning and can be easily adapted for any environment.
