Home care beds are designed with supporting pumps, compressors, and specialty mattresses and are used to support medically challenged patients at home. These beds are specially designed for people suffering from spinal cord injuries, neuromuscular disease, pediatric and chronic conditions, degenerative diseases, and others.

Moreover, to make these beds convenient for the patient’s use, they can be controlled through remotes. This gives better efficiency and leads to higher adoption of these beds at home. These products are widely available for patients in different sizes.
Home care beds have numerous benefits that result in an increased market for the product.

Along with their hospital utilization, these beds are extensively used for home purposes, leading to avoidance of hospital expenses; this also helps in providing the patients a better environment. The beds are equipped with electrical height adjustments and back section adjustment option. Increasing prevalence of chronic disorders such as diabetes, stroke, and cancer is resulting in rising number of patients admitted to hospitals, thereby creating space constraint in the hospitals. This has resulted in rising use of medical/home care beds for residential purposes. All these factors contribute to the rising market for home care beds globally. However, high cost of these beds is a factor that restrains consumers from buying them. Home care beds are considered as costly and are often unaffordable. This is considered a restraining factor for the market.
