Kings Fund beds
These beds conform to the Kings Fund report 'Design of hospital bedsteads 1967' and are designed for a hospital setting. They are required to meet certain criteria for example regarding strength, stability, weight and surface finish.
The report stated that Kings Fund beds must comprise certain features including:
- foot pump height adjustment;
- Trendelenberg and reverse Trendelenberg tilt;
- adjustable angle back support.
Although the report is now out of print, the Kings Fund design is still valid.
Only a small group of manufacturers are contracted to produce these beds.
