Overbed Tables for Home and Office Use

overbed tables

An overbed table can come in handy when you need a stand-up desk. The atHand® Overbed Table System is one example that is suited for a small apartment or even a dorm room. You may have visited an older family member in the hospital and seen similar tables that can help with eating and other tasks to maintain independence—but the innovation of various features has made such tables suitable for many other purposes.

Our atHand product is sturdy while supporting a range of everyday tastes. It is based on the design of a traditional bed table, but we’ve refined the idea to accommodate many other needs. The following are uses for an overbed table system that may work for you:

Versatile Work Surface

Our overbed table fits in a dorm room or small apartment or studio. It can fit snugly in a corner, or you can make full use of it while sleeping in. Enjoy a variety of activities such as:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Crafts
  • Eating
  • Entertainment

Read a book or do your homework on the table. It’s even a perfect spot to rest a laptop computer and do your research, write an academic paper, or surf the internet (a built-in outlet can power your laptop as you work). Keep your stereo or mobile media device on top or on a shelf to listen to music or podcasts. The convenient surface is also perfect for holding food and beverages when you have a meal or snack.

Organized Storage

If your room is filled with clutter, you can use an overbed table to organize your stuff. The convenient drawer can hold your mobile phone, remote controls, or even books and magazines. Safely stow watches, bracelets, or jewelry out of the way. There’s no need to invest in a nightstand. Small important items can be managed so you know exactly where they are and don’t accidentally trip over them at night.

Our atHand® Overbed Table System incorporates lighting. A built-in LED light can be set to different levels, so it’s suitable for reading or having a nightlight. Plus, a built-in USB outlet allows you to charge your tablet or smartphone overnight.

In Sickness and in Health

The idea of a hospital table for home use isn’t a new idea. Whether you’re not feeling well or recovering from surgery at home, the table can provide access to all the things you need, without leaving your bed. Your supplies are all within reach, so you can focus on recovery without doing too much. The overbed table is also great for women on pregnancy bed rest and anyone who has sleep apnea; it can easily accommodate a CPAP device and associated supplies.
