Best bed for paraplegic Patient

If you are looking for best bed for paraplegic patient, than you have landed at the right place. If you are looking after a paraplegic person or any sort of patient suffering from paralysis or disability at home, than no doubt this is a daunting task and it needs a lot of courage. However having necessary equipment specially a good nursing can lessen your burden a bit.

My father in law who was almost 85 years old got paralyzed after a stroke and me and my wife looked after him for almost 8 years. During this period we learnt a couple of things which we would like to share in our up coming posts.But in this current post i will post on the best bed for such a patient. I have gone through thousands of reviews before posting these patient beds on my website. ​

​What to look for in a Paraplegic Bed

No doubt selection of bed is of extreme importance as the patient has to spend most of his or her time on the bed and the care taker has to change his positions and make him sit or lift or lower his legs or head multiple time to increase his blood flow or to give him some drinks or some thing to eat.In this post I will be reviewing a bed which we purchased from Amazon and found it very helpful during the 8 years of our patient care at home. If some one else’s life becomes a bit easier because of our advice we will be glad and we will surely cherish this feeling. We purchased this bed after consulting other similar patients we met at the hospital and also we spent almost 5 days reading reviews of other people who purchased this bed. Prior to that i have published another post regarding selecting best pillow from Amazon for your patient.

​Our Top Pics

1. Drive Medical Med Aire Low Air Loss Mattress Replacement System with Alternating Pressure

After carefully analyzing price structures and most appropriate features for a paraplegic patient, we have chosen Drive Medical bed as the best option for nursing a paraplegic patient at home or at hospital. As we all know that a paraplegic patient is highly endangered or in risk of skin damage or rupture due to continuous stay at bed. This maceration of skin can also be caused by the urine or other patient fluids. To avoid this situation this bed I have chosen has brilliant features of alternating pressure and equal distribution of pressure across all parts of the bed.

Some salient features of the bed are as following

  • An elegant purple nylon cover which is highly elastic, durable, water and stain resistant.
  • Another feature which is liked a lot by our review team is the low cost and the feature of alternating pressure. This alternating pressure not only stimulates the blood flow of the patient but plays a vital role in decreasing the chances that the patient can develop bed sores.
  • The mattress has 20 air bladders, nine with laser holes to achieve the low air loss function and to increase patients comfort by keeping the affected area cool and dry ensuring a speedy recovery.
  • The mattress ensures air flow and maintains its temperature. Important reason of this behavior is that the mattress cover is totally vapor permeable. This means that the patient will have very less sweating and skin rashes as well.

​2. Paraplegic bed with separate wheel chair

​This is the second paraplegic bed which comes with a detachable wheel chair. The drawback of this patient bed is that it is fairly expensive. Other than that according to feature comparison it is quiet suitable for a bed ridden patient.

​Key features

  • Detachable wheel chair function The most important benefit is that this bed comes with a wheel chair function. This wheel chair is easily detachable from the bed. This wheel chair is quite comfortable and it separately costs some thing around 500 to 1000 Dollars. So this is the first sure saving you achieve by this purchase.
  • Dining Table Function The bed comes with a free dining table. The patient can very easily sit down by him self, eat snacks have a chit chat or read books. This surely lessens the nursing burden of the care taker.This dining table can alsio be used to place medicines or patient reports.
  • ​Lifting and Lowers of Feet and Legs Patient can easily move his/her legs which is quite relaxing and it prevents varicose veins and improve blood circulation. This feature is also beneficial if the patient has degenerative disk or had an accidental injury in the back bone or hip bone. This bed helps to direct the flow of blood towards the hip bone which improves the recovery time of the paraplegic patient.
  • 4th Benefit    Builtin Commode for Paralyzed or Aged Person If the paraplegic patient is old aged or due to injury cannot go to bathroom than there is a great benefit that this bed comes with a builtin commode which is very handy to wash. Also there is a separate feet washing stand which lessens the burden of the care giver a lot.  This is shown in Figure below
  • 5th Benefit The bed is very easily convert able into dining table for the patient due to lifting of back rest and lowering of knees area. The figure below shows that the patient can very easily have his breakfast, lunch or dinner. This posture is also suitable if the patient is interested in newspaper, book reading or passing urine or stool.
  • 6th Benefit   Another great benefit of  this patient bed is that you can very easily shampoo the patient or he can do it himself because of the Head and Hand Washing Basin that comes free with the bed.
  • 7th Benefit    If the patient is suffering from diphtheria or is suffering from loss of blood or low blood pressure and doctor has prescribed an IV injection or drip than this bed comes with a free IV or infusion pole.
  • 8th Benefit   Aluminum Side Rails   This bed has an added advantage that it comes with Wood grain aluminum side rails which are very helpful in getting a hold while patient is trying to sit or trying to come in to or out of the bed. The patient him self can hold these side rails to turn positions or take turns without the help of care taker.
  • 9th Benefit    8x Mute Caster Wheels  The bed comes with a five years warranty so that reliefs a lot of a stress secondly the bed comes with 8 mute caster wheels which comes in quite handy as you have to move the patient many times for doctor’s consultation or just for meeting friends and family.
  • 10th Benefit    The final benefit is that the bed comes with a very comfortable nursing mattress. The mattress has a washable cover which can be washed multiple times in washing machine.

3. Invacare Full Electric ​​Quadriplegic Bed

​If you are looking after an aged quadriplegic or paraplegic loved one at home than Invacare bed is another great option. 

Invacare Full Electric Paraplegic Bed with motor and remote

Key Features

  • ​Invacare quadriplegic bed is Amazon’s most selling electric bed which is most suitable for paralysis and paraplegic patients.
  • ​Invacare comes with a remote that controls the complete movement of bed including rising of head or foot or middle regions of patient. Don’t worry if you have power shortage as you can still control movement with the help of crank.
  • ​The bed comes with elegant rails which are a blessing for the paraplegic patient so he can put his load on the rails to left his/her body without the help of the caretaker.
  • The mattress that comes with the bed is of supreme quality and most of the consumers gave it 5 stars.
  • The water proof cover that comes free with the bed make your life lot easier specially if the patient is suffering from urine disorder.
