- Electric Adjustment: The bed is equipped with electric motors or actuators that allow easy and precise adjustment of various positions, including height, backrest, leg rest, and Trendelenburg/reverse Trendelenburg positions. These adjustments provide optimal positioning for the pregnant woman during different stages of labor and delivery.
- Split Leg Design: Many electric delivery beds have a split leg design, which allows the legs to be placed in stirrups for comfortable positioning during the delivery process.
- Removable Leg Sections: The bed may have removable leg sections to facilitate access and patient transfer during childbirth.
- Safety Rails: Electric delivery beds are often equipped with safety rails on both sides to provide support for the pregnant woman and to prevent accidental falls during labor and delivery.
- Trendelenburg and Reverse Trendelenburg: The bed can be tilted in the Trendelenburg or reverse Trendelenburg positions, which are useful during specific stages of labor or delivery to enhance blood circulation or assist with the baby’s descent.
- Memory Positions: Some electric delivery beds have memory settings that allow healthcare providers to store and recall specific bed positions quickly, providing convenience and efficiency during labor and delivery.
- Foot Control: The bed may come with a foot control system, allowing the healthcare provider to adjust the bed’s position without having to use their hands during critical moments.
- Built-in Scales: Certain models of electric delivery beds have built-in weighing scales to monitor the mother’s weight before and after delivery accurately.
- Perineal Cutout: Some beds have a perineal cutout, which provides space for the healthcare provider to access the perineal area during delivery.
