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 Bed Rails. These comfort items are delivered/picked up directly to the stateroom or hotel room.

The price of this equipment varies by the port city requested.

Bed Wedge

Bed wedges are ideal for use when wanting to raise the upper body while lying in bed. The wedge is placed between the mattress and box spring.  The wedges are made of a dense foam with a removable quilted cover.

Fully Electric Hospital Bed

Electric hospital beds have a control that raises and lowers the head and feet, and also electrically adjusts the height of the bed from the floor. For hygienic reasons, a vinyl covered mattress is typically included with the rental.

You need to contact the cruise line to make arrangements for placement of this bed in your stateroom. It may require removal of an existing bed to accommodate the hospital bed. An accessible room is usually a requirement due to the needs of the person needing the bed.

Hoyer Lift

Patient lifters such as the hoyer lift are used to provide assistance in transferring to/from a wheelchair, bed or other areas. As each individual has their own unique medical situation, we ask that clients bring their own sling and required attachments. Our hoyer lifts handle most 2, 4 or 6-point slings, accommodates up to 400 lbs, and is delivered and set up in the stateroom.

The freestanding base allows the hoyer lift to be used wherever it is needed.


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.
