1874 The Andrew Wuest and Son’s, Cincinnati Ohio bed company, medical moveable bed frame made its debut. The 1800s version elevated the head.
1909 Dr. Gatch creates Gatch Bed. The purpose was to prevent patients from the risk of infection, no longer in the single position of lying flat during recovery. The Gatch Bed split into three separate sections, each section able to be positioned as needed according to the patient's specific needs.
1900s George Ryerson Fowler saw the need to allow for the bed to adjust to moving even more, up to a 90-degree angle, to what is now known as Fowler’s position. This position permits the head of the bed to be raised up to a 90-degree right angle to allow for easier patient feeding, breathing, and grooming, along with better drainage after certain procedures.
1974 as TV and reading in bed rose in popularity the adjustable bed was introduced to the residential consumer. The design promoted back sleeping, doing little to ease a myriad of health problems known to negatively impact sleep.
