Are these hospital beds electric?
Yes, they are fully electric and come with an easy to use remote control which can can adjust the various sections of the bed. The main three areas are the back rest, total height of the bed and the knee-raise section.
Where can the bed be set up?
The bed can be set up anywhere in the home once there is room for a single size bed (7x3ft) and access to an electrical socket (2 sockets if an air mattress is required).
How long does it take to set up?
It takes about 30-45 minutes to set up the bed and about 1 hour if an air mattress is required. Once set up is complete our product specialist will show you how to operate the bed properly and safely.
What is included with the bed rental service?
Package includes a fully electric profiling bed, hospital grade foam mattress and collapsible side-rails (sometimes known as cot-sides). We also have optional extras such as reach poles and over-bed tables which we can include free of charge.
Do I need an air mattress?
Typically your healthcare professional will recommend the type of mattress required. Sometimes if a person will be in bed for large parts of the day there may be a risk of bedsores of pressure ulcers occurring and an air mattress can help prevent and/or treat this. An air mattress (also known as a pressure relieving alternating mattress) has a control unit at the end of the bed supplying a constant flow of air to the bed and the air is regularly adjusted under the persons body weight meaning they are not lying in the same position for too long.

We had great service from Mobility Direct. A bed was available at short notice and delivered and set up promptly. The bed was clean and in good working order. Any queries we had were dealt with efficiently and the pick up service worked smoothly. Thanks Martin for a great service during a very stressful time.
