Considerations when renting a over-bed table

When you are renting an over bed table, you have to make sure that you are choosing one that's actually large enough for the bed. Check the measurements to ensure there will be plenty of clearance. Tables are adjustable, but you should still take measurements. In addition, consider the type of material. Some of the tables are wooden, while others are plastic, for example. You may also want to rent or lease a plastic or rubber mat to go beneath the bed if you will be using the table in a carpeted room at home. This will make sliding the table in and out easier.

Features of over-bed tables

These tables will usually feature four caster wheels on a base that is able to slide right beneath the bed. The top goes over the bed, providing a flat surface for the patient. The tables are usually adjustable, so they can accommodate different sized beds as well as different sized patients.

How over-bed tables work

An over bed table works very simply. The bottom slides under the bed, while the top goes over the top of the bed. The patient can then use this for mealtime, for their laptop or notebooks, books, and more. They are useful for anyone who is confined to a bed for a long period. Someone who is ill and bedbound, or someone who is recovering from illness or a surgery will find these tables useful.

About over-bed tables

Another name for this type of table, which you are probably familiar with, is hospital table. These are the same types of tables that you see in hospitals and clinics, and as the name suggests, they will go over the bed. This can be very useful for the patient as well as the caregiver. Someone who is on bed rest will find these tables to be a huge convenience.

Over-Bed Table Applications

People are able to use the over bed table for most of the same things that they would use a traditional table for. Some of the following are common applications:
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Laptops
  • Dining
