Height adjustable beds are a standard requirement for quality patient care. Not only do they offer comfort and ease of movement for a patient in hospital, an elderly person in a nursing home or someone being cared for at home, they also make a carer’s job much easier.
Mac’s Metalcraft has height adjustable beds that are ideal for hospitals, aged care facilities like nursing homes, or for home care. At the touch of a button, you can electrically raise or lower the bed or elevate the patient’s back or legs, making his or her stay in bed much more comfortable. Our height adjustable bed, the Mac-1, features electric Hi-Lo, 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 height adjustable 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 Profiling beds means a much lower risk of injury due to falling from bed
Another advantage of the Mac-2 height adjustable beds, 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 height adjustable beds feature a smooth, powder coated surface for infection control and easy cleaning and can be easily adapted for any environment.
The Mac 1 Height Adjustable Bed is OH&S compliant and has many great standard features.
The Mac 2 Height Adjustable Bed is able to go to the super low height of 110mm and is able to be folded for transport.
