Hospital Bed Mattress Size Guide
How to choose the appropriate mattress for a hospital bed

Hospital Bed Mattress Sizes & Weight Capacities

Standard Mattress: A typical home care hospital bed has a sleep surface measuring 36" wide and 80" in length. Most mattress systems in this category are constructed with either an innerspring foundation, solid dense foam, or a combination of both.

Bariatric Mattress: A mattress wider than 36" is usually considered a Bariatric Mattress. This category offers mattress systems with higher weight limits, capable of supporting obese patients, and most are constructed of dense foam.

Air Mattress Systems: There are several forms of Air Mattress systems designed for varying levels of therapeutic support and pressure redistribution. Alternating Pressure, Low Air Loss and Lateral Rotation Mattress Systems can be found in our Therapeutic Support Surface category, see: TSS Mattress Systems .
