Guide to Finding the Right Hospital Bed

Choosing the right hospital bed for your loved one can be stressful.  We understand that with all the options out there finding the right one can be a bit overwhelming.  Today we are going to breakdown a few options so that you can find the best hospital bed for sale to meet your needs.

Manual hospital beds are great if you are on a tight budget but you need a fully functional bed to put in your home.  While they are cheaper you have to be sure that the person that will use the bed is physically able to manipulate it.  Normally the bed will have to be manually cranked in order to adjust the bed to the desired positions.

Semi-Electric Hospital Beds are a great option if you think that the person using the hospital bed doesn’t have the physical ability to use a manual hospital bed, but you are still working with a tight budget.  These beds are much cheaper than fully electric beds; yet offer comfort and support to users.   The part of the bed that is slept on is electric, but the height of the bed still has to be adjusted manually, however this can usually be handle by the caregiver.

Electrical Hospital Bed these are some of the most expensive options for hospital beds, however they offer the most supports and comfort for the user.   For patients that don’t have much physical strength or ability this is the best option because everything is motorize, meaning that the patients only have to press a small button to manipulate the position of their head and neck.

Adjustable Hospital Beds come in a wide variety of options; they are beds that are designed to look like normal beds. Our beds come in a variety of options including twin and up through king.  If you are looking to furnish a room with a hospital bed as a permanent feature and want aesthetic value, these are the way to go.

Specialty Hospital Beds are designed more for commercial then for residential use.  These are the kind of hospital bed that you will find in most hospitals that have a variety of options and are usually fully electric.  If you are looking to purchase a specially hospital bed, be prepared to spend a decent sum of money, however with these you get what you pay for.  The higher priced beds are quality and will last for a much longer time than a standard home hospital bed.

Low Cost Options For Home Health Care

Caring for a loved one is a sometimes difficult task. There are many decisions you will have to make and Vital Mobility is here to help you. Most people prefer to stay in their own homes, but when a loved one is bed bound, it can be difficult to keep them in the home. Our goal at Vital Mobility is to provide you with the tools you need to keep a loved one at home and avoid the costs of staying in a facility. We offer affordable rentals both long and short term for things like Hoyer lifts, electric hospital beds, wheelchairs and smaller items such as walkers and crutches. You could spend thousands of dollars purchasing a large item like a Hoyer lift and you may only need it for a short period of time. You can rent from us for a little as a week or for longer periods of time as needed.

In addition to saving money on purchasing a big ticket item, you can save money by staying home rather than staying in a long term care facility. A nursing home can set you back thousands of dollars a month. Staying at home and renting from us will save you hundreds of dollars. What if you have a broken leg and you need to use a pair of crutches for several weeks? Depending on type of crutches you need, they can set you back up to $100. You can rent them from us for significantly less, allowing you to save a considerable amount on something that you may only need once in your lifetime. We provide adult, youth, and child sizes and guarantee our products are 100% sanitized.

We also provide hospital type beds.

Sleep In Comfort No Matter Where You Go with an Air Mattress

When it comes to comfort, Vital Mobility Medical Supplies has got what it takes to get the peace of mind you always wanted. We are Canadian medical supplier professionals who deliver quality medical equipment, including medical air mattresses, to the public without costing an arm and a leg. We understand how painful back problems can be and we want to help make sure you wake up well-rested and in total comfort.

Back pain is usually associated with pains originating from various parts of the body internally and externally. The spine is one of the major bones in the human body, and it just so happens to be in your back. Whether you are lying down to take a nap, or going to sleep for the night, we know how many people suffer from back pain each year. The numbers are higher than you might think, and according to estimates, 5 out of 10 people suffer from back pain or associated symptoms every year.

Our medical air mattress is one of the few therapeutic comfort mattresses that actually help with back pain so that you can enjoy a good night’s sleep and feel much more energetic and healthy the next day. One of the amazing air mattresses we have includes the Mason LS9000, an therapeutic mattress that helps prevent and treat pressure sores from extended bed use. With 10 comfort settings and an exclusive pulsate mode, this mattress will provide you with the support and comfort you need.

Back pain is divided into 4 different areas, from your whole back to the neck, upper back and lower back. Our air mattress technology allowed us to create an easier way for our customers to deal with their pain while in bed, and through studies based on individuals with severe lower back pain and other back related pains, the improvement can be noticed after the very first night.

The medical air mattress can be moved very easily by adding and removing the air, which can be done automatically. Having a mobile air mattress means no more uncomfortable sleeps when you aren’t at home in your own bed. The air mattresses can provide each individual continuous treatment night after night no matter where you are. When inflated, each mattress is lightweight and can be easily carried and transported. We believe that durability is a must when it comes to mattresses, and air mattresses should be no different in sturdiness and comfort. As a long-lasting, comfortable and therapeutic stress reliever that can be taken anywhere, you can experience  the comfort of a back pain reliving mattress anywhere you go.

Get Exercise And Fresh Air This Winter

When the weather starts to turn cooler and the leaves begin to change into beautiful shades of red, orange and gold, many people head outdoors to enjoy long walks in the brisk autumn air. After the leaves have fallen and the air turns even colder, those long walks are studded with snowball fights and contests to see who can build the tallest snowman. For the majority of the population, this is a wonderful opportunity to fit in a bit of physical activity instead of staying indoors sipping hot chocolate and watching holiday movies. However, for the part of the population that suffers from mobility issues, this can be a particularly challenging time of year.

According to The Participation and Activity Limitation Survey that was released in January of 2009, 11.5% of the Canadian population over the age of 15 suffers from mobility issues that impact their activity levels. For these individuals, the icy sidewalks and snow covered driveways that are easily maneuverable by those with no limitations, pose serious hazards. Because of the increased risks, many people suffering from a disability spend much more time inside than they would like.

We at Vital Mobility Medical Supplies Inc. offer many options to help those with mobility issues gain more independence during times of inclement weather. Because manual wheelchairs can be difficult to operate while bundled up in layers of bulky winter clothing, electric wheelchairs are a wonderful option to help those with mobility issues enjoy beautiful winter outings. For those who may not be wheelchair bound, our electric scooters are a suitable alternative. Our line of Rollators offer extra stability and mobility options for those who can move using a walker.

Often times, mobility issues are the result of an accident or surgical procedure. This can cause a decline in mobility where the use of a wheelchair or walker is only temporary. In this case, it is more cost efficient to rent mobility equipment than to buy it. Without the rental option, most people would simply overlook the ability to utilize electric wheelchairs because of the cost. Or perhaps you require a Rollator or electric scooter for a more permanent situation, but are unsure of which model is best suited to your lifestyle. Our rentals allow you to try out various styles to help you determine which one is the best fit for you. Electric wheelchairs can cost thousands of dollars each. Our rental packages help you obtain high quality mobility equipment at a fraction of the cost of buying it.

Whereas some individuals utilize mobility equipment out of necessity, there are those who could benefit from its presence as a sort of ‘helping hand’ to make their daily lives more comfortable. Our range of electric scooters and electric hospital beds are a welcome addition to the home of someone with mobility issues. For many of those who are affected with reduced upper body strength, an electric hospital bed can make a morning routine much easier by allowing the person to get out of bed from an almost sitting position. For individuals with slightly more mobility, an electric scooter can make a trip to the grocery store or mall much more comfortable by allowing the majority of their outing to be completed from a sitting position.

Whether you are suffering from a temporary reduction in mobility or your situation is more permanent, we have everything you need to increase your mobility options so you can get more exercise outdoors and breathe in that crisp, fresh air this winter season.

Keep Fit And Stay Active This Winter

There are a number of people who suffer from limited mobility, especially in the winter months. It is hard to sit around and watch a loved one struggle with the fact that their body will not allow them to get around the way they used to. Winter tends to be a time that people retreat to the indoors, but it is more important than ever to keep fit and stay active during these months. Lucky for everyone there is something that can be done to help these loved ones get their independence back. Regardless of what your aging loved one needs, chances are good it can be obtained on a rental. Because there are so many medical conditions that hinder people from getting around, the mobility market is always growing. The good news is this rapid growth is helping more and more people to lead a happier life by giving them supplies that help give them a better life quality.

In Canada the top problems are pain, mobility and flexibility. It is estimated that 11% of the adults in Canada are suffering from one of these types of disability, with 9.7% suffering from pain, 7.6 % suffering from issues with flexibility and 7.2 % suffering from issues of mobility (1). So what do people do when they need mobility products? Often people rent them; partially because this equipment can be very expensive to buy, although it should be noted that oftentimes insurance plans help with the costs. As you can see, there are many benefits to renting a mobility product, such as rollator walkers and other mobility products.

If the idea of rollator walkers is new to you, keep in mind that these walkers have many options that can help people feel better about their condition and get around better too. This walker will help your loved one walk with a feeling of pride. These walkers are light weight and have sturdy wheels too. You can push them or allow your loved ones to use them in the way that is best for them. Walkers and scooters are not the only things that you can rent; you can also use our service for crutches rentals. Let’s face it, who wants to buy crutches? What do you do once you have purchased a set and are finished with them? Renting these items makes everyone’s life easier.

Regardless of what products you or your loved one need to make life easier, we are able to help you. Our goal is to help people improve their quality of life with the highest quality products. So, if you need supplies now or in the future, please contact us at Vital Mobility Medical Supplies Inc. for all your mobility needs.
