Narration:
A hospital bed table offers a handy surface for activities for persons who spend a lot of time in bed. Most hospital tables are height adjustable and can be easily moved as they have wheels (castors). However, rolling furniture can be dangerous if, for example, it gets used for support. For safety's sake, choose a bed table that has two locking castors, which may increase the table's safety. We don't know of any bed tables on which all four castors lock.
