The Difference Between Full Electric and Semi Electric Hospital Beds

The Difference Between Full Electric and Semi Electric Hospital Beds

We are often asked “what is the difference between a full electric and a
semi electric hospital bed“?

The main difference is that a “full electric” hospital bed is motorized
for the bed up and down features and a “semi electric” bed has a
crank to raise and lower the bed.

Both hospital bed models have electric power for head up and down
and foot up and down features but raising the bed up and down is
where they are different. “Semi electric” raises the bed with a crank
and
“full electric” beds have a motorized feature for this movement.

Normally residential grade beds made by “Invacare” or “Drive” are
given to patients who are on insurance or Medicalcare and
unless they get a prescription from a doctor they are given
“semi electric” hospital bed models.

Almost every hospital in the United States operate with commercial
grade hospital beds from Hill Rom and Stryker and the vast majority
are all “full electric”. This is because hospitals are using nursing staff and
caregivers to take care of the patient and need to raise them up to
get access and having to crank each patient can be a difficult task
when done all day. also some patients need the bed raised to help
get to their feet and lowered to make the bed accessible to sit down.

known as a “durable medical equipment” supplier and provides a wide range
of full electric medical beds from both Hill Rom and Stryker including
