Beds, Electric, Rocking

Definition : Electric beds designed to periodically tilt patients a small angle (e.g., 15 degrees) from the horizontal plane, placing them alternately in the Trendelenburg and reverse Trendelenburg positions following a rocking motion. These beds may include controls for adjustment of the speed and/or degree of tilting. Rocking electric beds are intended mainly to help patient breathing by using the weight of the abdominal contents to move the diaphragm; they are also used in occlusive arterial diseases to improve circulation.
