How an Overbed Table Can Benefit People with Disabilities
As a person living with a disability or as a family member, or caregiver, you want to find ways that can make a difficult and sometimes frustrating situation easier for everyone involved. Though often overlooked, the overbed table can provide convenience, function and enrich the lives of people living with disabilities.
When you think of an overbed table you’re probably imagining a tray table on four wheels that sits next to a hospital bed. You may think they’re only used for hospital patients, or a person recovering from a serious injury or surgery, but when you strip down the function of an overbed table, they can be used for multiple situations, especially to help people with permanent physical disabilities.
A high quality overbed table can increase independence and reduce dependence for simple everyday things. Quit looking for quick fixes and get a tool that can be used for multiple situations. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference an overbed table can make when you have one with the right features. Here is why an overbed table can help improve the quality of life and become a trusted companion for people who suffer from a physical disability.
Better Home Organization
By knowing where items are and keeping them within reach, you can make sure that a person with a disability will stay comfortable and confident.
There may be times where they may be stuck in bed, visually impaired, or have limited mobility, what do you do then? An easy solution is to have an overbed table nearby that has added storage compartments and features that make staying organized in a confined space easier than ever before.
With extra drawers and shelves, built-in USB and power outlets, and an adjustable tray table, you have room to keep must-have items such as mobile devices, electronics, books, medication, food, beverages, and whatever items you can’t live without. The best part, everything is within reach which means you can easily grab your phone to call friends and family or watch your favorite show on Netflix on your mobile device.
Imagine having a table by your side that has the capacity and features where you can watch movies, read books, play games, write, and simply feel like you have the freedom to do what you love. Too many times, people with a disability become stagnant and feel depressed about their situation, and while we can’t imagine what they’re going through, the atHand Overbed Table System can give them some freedom back. If they want to work on a laptop, play video games, draw or write, they can do it with the right overbed table by their side.
