Beds, Mechanical, Birthing
Definition : Mechanical beds designed to permit women to assume more natural delivery positions and minimize the associated discomfort and risks during birthing. These beds typically have three sections: backrest, seat, and foot. The backrest angle, foot height, and bed height are adjustable, and the foot section can be removed to permit access to the mother's perineal area. Mechanical birthing beds lessen the lapse of time associated with transfers between beds, stretchers, and labor/delivery tables, often allowing the mother to remain in the same bed throughout labor and delivery.
