Having recently returned from a quite unexpected hospital stay-over, I can state with first-hand experience that it’s one thing to say a hospital furnishing is designed to accommodate a patient’s needs, but quite another to actually mean it. Happily, manufacturer Knú Healthcare is in the latter category. Their line of Overbed Tables are “designed with the patient in mind.”

Knú Healthcare’s Overbed Tables Are Strong, Mobile, and Convenient
If you haven’t heard the term, count yourself among the lucky few who’ve never needed to eat while confined to a hospital bed. The rest of you, however, certainly know that the flexibility and convenience offered by these adjustable tables is a veritable godsend.
Knú’s Overbed Tables anticipate the bed-ridden patient’s primary challenges—that is to say, eating in a comfortable position, keeping the immediate environment clean, and securing crucial items to keep them within arm’s reach.
All products in Knu Healthcare’s Overbed Table line feature a slim and sleek design, ample storage in the form of cleverly integrated side niches, easy maneuverability courtesy of rolling casters, a low profile steel base for a great strength to weight ratio, and a 40 oz. liquid containment area to keep the inevitable spill confined to the tabletop.
And though you wouldn’t necessarily think to comment on the aesthetics of a primarily utilitarian furnishing, Knu Healthcare’s Overbed Tables offer a good dose of high style—finish options include Fusion Maple, Summer Flame, Chocolate Pear, and Medium Maple. Local manufacture (all made in the good old U.S.A.) and high post-consumer recycled content—64% in fact—complete the picture for this immensely pragmatic and surprisingly attractive furnishing.
About the Manufacturer: Knú Healthcare likes to say that the company is “evidence based.” Presumably, this means the high-quality of their excellent product line speaks for itself. Knú manufactures all manner of necessaries for healthcare environments, including tables, overbed tables, patient and visitor seating, and a variety of casegoods. The products are appealingly styled and manifestly functional—touches like the durable and hygienic Kydex T and full-extension drawer slides assure they perform well in a hospital environment.
