Manual Hospital Beds
Manual Hospital Beds are medical beds that use hand cranks to raise the entire bed level, as well as the head and foot sections of the bed. This results in optimal comfort for the patient. Manual hospital beds are just as versatile as full and semi-electric beds, but lack the risk of motor failure and maintenance. Sturdy, reliable and comfortable, these medical beds are a cost-effective long-term care option.

Manual Hospital Beds are a cost effective solution ideal for patients who either have a caretaker or who have the ability to use the hand crank to raise and lower the bed.
