How To Rent Medical Equipment for a Cruise

Scootaround provides a range of medical equipment rentals for cruises. This equipment is chosen specifically for its portability and suitability on cruise ships. Below you will find further information on how to select the medical equipment that is best-suited for your next cruise.

Renting medical equipment for your cruise couldn't be easier. Customers can arrange cruise rentals 24/7 by booking online or calling 1-888-441-7575. Once your equipment has been booked, we will deliver the medical equipment directly to your cruise ship cabin, port, hotel, or residence – whichever is most convenient for you.

What Kind of Medical Equipment Does Scootaround Rent for Cruises?

Bed Rail

Scootaround maintains a large inventory of guest comfort items, including bedrails. These items are delivered directly to your stateroom or hotel room. The price of bedrail rentals can vary depending on the cruise port city. Please consult with the Scootaround reservations team.


Bed Wedge

Ideal for use when wanting to raise the upper body while lying in bed. The wedge is placed between the mattress and box spring.

Fully Electric Hospital Bed

These beds have a control that raises or lowers the head and feet. The control also electrically adjusts the height of the bed from the floor. For hygiene, most hospital bed rentals include a vinyl covered mattress.

If renting a hospital bed, please contact the cruise line beforehand to make arrangements for placement of the bed in your stateroom. The cruise line may need to move an existing bed in order to accommodate the hospital bed. An accessible room is usually required to meet the needs of the person using the bed.


Hoyer Lift

Patient lifters (such as a Hoyer Lift) are used to assist passengers when transferring from their wheelchair to their bed, or vice versa. Everyone has their own unique medical requirements, so we ask that clients bring their own sling and attachments. We will provide the appropriate lift to accommodate your sling.

The Hoyer Lift’s freestanding base allows you to move and use the lift wherever it’s needed.

The lift handles most 2, 4, or 6-point slings and accommodates up to 400 lbs. Scootaround will deliver and set up the Hoyer Lift directly in your stateroom.




Recliners offer a convenient and comfortable way to enjoy your vacation. Scootaround can provide a recliner for your stateroom or hotel in most major port cities. However, please note that not all cruises allow recliners, so please consult your cruise line or the Scootaround reservations team before renting.

Recliner rentals include delivery, set up, removal, and pickup.


Recliner - Motorized

Our motorized recliner is a 3-position, medium-to-large lift chair recliner. It has a popular split-T back design and a patented smooth, quiet lift system. The overstuffed, fiber-filled pillow back provides comfort and support, while easy-to-use hand controls and a spacious storage pocket offer convenience and reliability.

Recliner rentals includes delivery, set up, removal, and pickup.





Trapeze lifts are an assisting, overhead device for clients who need to move themselves using their arms. The freestanding base allows you to move and use the lift wherever it’s needed. The lift accommodates up to 250 lbs.

Scootaround will deliver and set up the trapeze lift directly in your stateroom.
