Behavioral Health Bed™

Behavioral Health Bed™ Fully Electric Psychiatric Bed

Behavioral Health Bed™ (BHB) is fully electric and ligature-resistant. PowerSafe™ technology ensures electrical safety, while the security and clinical advantages create a user-friendly, ergonomic bed for a variety of care settings.

BHB was developed alongside behavioral health clinicians and is trusted by accredited hospitals nationwide.

Dual-Diagnosis Patients

Nearly one in five American adults experience mental illness, and 68% of adults with behavioral health conditions also have medical comorbidities. In addition, average length of stay for patients with a mental and/or substance abuse disorder is 38% longer than other patients.1 Healthcare facilities must be equipped to handle this patient population.
 

Clinical Advantages

Most mental health beds are non-electric, making it difficult and unsafe for clinicians to treat dual-diagnosis patients . Behavioral Health Bed™ is designed with multiple, fully-electric, features to aid in safe patient care.

Developed Alongside
Behavioral Health Clinicians

Behavioral Health Bed™ was the result of a unique collaboration between Sizewise and clinicians at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC). Behavioral health nurses identified a need and worked alongside Sizewise designers and engineers to develop a fully electric medical bed to support clinical as well as safety needs—the first of its kind on the market.

Security Enhancements
