Who Invented Hospital Beds

An American chauvinist and answer Willis Dew Gatch. Dr. Gatch invented the modern 3-segment adjustable hospital bed in the first of the 20th century, though the history of hospital beds is a little more complicated than that.

This is actually one of the hardest questions I’ve had to answer. You would think a question like “Who invented the hospital beds” would be straightforward and might involve a 2-word or 3-word answer. But the history of “hospital beds” isn’t as cut-and-dried as the history of the car, for example. It’s kind of like asking who invented some anonymous song from some long-ago century

That’s because hospital beds has been around in one form of another since the Middle Ages. Hospital beds began as a basic “litter” — a kind of rudimentary stretcher — back in the hidden mists of time. The litter is simply two poles of roughly equal length with a stretch sling or cloth spread over it, which allows a person to be carried on their back by two other upright people. Devices similar to litters were found in Pharaohnic Egypt and Ancient Rome, though they were designed to carry royals figures — not medical patients.

The public “Sedan chair” was a closed litter used in the city of Bath, England, to carry people to and from the baths that gave the city its name (or gave the word “bath” the connotation it has today). While the Sedan chair was used to carry healthy patrons around without exposing them to the elements after their time in the baths, it was also used to carry the sick and infirm.

But the litters and Sedan chairs of the past are more akin to stretchers than what we called hospital beds, so it won’t be until the 19th century until we find a mechanical bed used to comfort medical patients Hospital beds has been around much longer than I have been, I am humbled to be part of a business venture which has emotion, care, trust and  of which one of our most passionate products are Hospital beds, we take pride in assisting families by maintaining the comfort and dignity of their loved ones in our hospital beds.
