If you’ve spent time in the hospital, you’re familiar with wood-finish laminate overbed tables. But for your home, you can upgrade to a better table. Here are a few features to look for when purchasing your very own overbed table.
Measure your bed, and then search the internet for a table that suits your measurements. You could find a table that’s the correct height for your bed, but we suggest going for a table with adjustable height. This ensures that no matter where you rest (chair, couch, or bed), you can adjust the table to meet your needs.
You definitely want a table that can be rolled to the side to let you get up and go to the bathroom. But when you are using it in bed, you need the table to have brakes and to lock in place. This means the table you buy should both swivel and lock.
Why do you need an overbed table? Are you planning to use it as a place to eat breakfast? Play cards? Read? Use a laptop? The size of the tabletop matters. Make sure the length and width of the table can comfortably accommodate your devices and belongings.
When you’re in bed recovering, getting up frequently is difficult. Some tables come with storage, USB ports, chargers for cell phones, drawers, lights, or a rim to protect you from spills. That way you don’t have to get up as much.
