What is a profiling care bed?
Profiling beds are care beds used in care homes and within private homes to assist elderly and disabled users with mobility and support, whilst assisting carers with nursing. These electric profiling beds get their name from their profiling mattress platform, which allows users to raise the backrest to sit up in bed and raise the footrest and knee-break to elevate their legs.
Profiling beds are also fully height adjustable and some models have a lilting function called Trendelenburg. All functions are operated electrically through a wired handset which can be clipped on to the side of the bed. Beds may also be chosen with side rails at either side of the mattress platform which can be raised and lowered to help prevent falls from the bed.
The different types of profiling beds
Standard height profiling beds are the most common type of profiling bed. In their lowest position, they are around 40cm from the floor which is a similar height to a normal divan bed. When raised to their highest position they are around 80cm from the floor, the height of a carer’s waist level to facilitate nursing for the user on the bed.
Low height profiling beds can be lowered much closer to the floor, around 20cm away. This creates a safe sleeping height when side rails are not suitable for users and also offers more flexibility when getting in and out of the bed. However, low profiling beds can only be raised to around 60cm high meaning a carer would have to bend over the bed to nurse the patient.
All-in-one-height profiling beds are low and standard height beds combined into one bed, hence the name. They have an extensive height range of around 20cm – 80cm which mean users get the benefits of a low sleeping/access height as well as a high nursing height.
Wide profiling beds are typically around 4ft wide and are ideal for users who require additional room when in the bed. A 4ft wide bed is classed as an extra wide single bed or small double bed.
Stand assist beds are cleverly engineered to enable the user to reach a standing position from the bed without the help of a carer/assistant. They maintain all the key characteristics of a profiling bed but their mattress platform also adjusts into a position that makes getting up from the bed much easier. The most common stand assist bed is the rotating chair version which is where the mattress platform rotates 90 degrees and forms a chair facing out from the bed.
