    Will people that live in the Palm Beach area help out? Medical mattress needed

    Hi guys,

    I have a friend who will travel to Palm Beach this coming July to represent Team Canada for FIPFA( A powerchair soccer version of FiFA). He has MD and he needs a hospital bed with medical graded mattress. He has been trying to book a rental bed in the Palm Beach area but no luck. Will anyone be willing to let him borrow the bed for free or with a little rental fee?

    Thanks

    Not sure why you mean by a "medical graded mattress". Most hospital bed frame rentals are going to come with a standard hospital bed mattress. It is important also to know if he is looking for a full-electric or semi-electric bed frame.

    If they need a specialty mattress, that will be a little more difficult, but not impossible. Some companies do rent low air loss mattresses, for example, although often for a minimum of a month. He could also consider a disposable overlay to use just for the trip if he needs pressure reduction, such as a GeoMatt or Biogard AFT good quality foam overlay, or even an inflatable overlay like the Stryker SofCare or EHOB Waffle.

    Here are a couple of companies in the Palm Beach area that have rental hospital beds on their websites:
