Electric Beds


Can You Say Yes to these Questions?

Have you tried more than one bed and lain on the bed you intend to buy for at least 30 minutes? 5 minutes will not give much idea of long term comfort.

Can you get the size of bed you want?
There are various width beds on the market, not just single and double?

Do you want a double bed? Two attached singles could be better, so that you and your partner can operate them independently, but remain able to enjoy those intimate times together.

An electric bed tends to push you down the bed a little as you sit up, so the bed should ideally be 6" longer than the tallest user. If the bed is longer and wider than your existing bed - have you got room?

Has the bed base got sections to support the head, back, bottom, thigh and calf?

When you sit yourself up in bed, will you be able to reach your bedside table?

Are there separate controls to work the leg section and the head section independently?

Do you find the bed control easy to manage, and will you be able to reach and find it in the dark?

When the bed sits you up, are you still fully supported? Check that your head and feet are still comfortable.

Can you lift your legs onto the bed and move yourself into the middle? Although the bed may be very comfortable, an electric bed may not help you get in and out.

Is it a good height for bed making and will it be easy to fit sheets onto?

Will it be possible to move the bed around if necessary for cleaning underneath?

Will it be easy to maintain? Who will do this?

Useful Tips to Help You Decide

Some people like a bed that will rise and lower. A higher bed can be easier to get off, whereas a lower bed can be easier to get on.

Don't be bamboozled by words such as "orthopaedic". This can mean a very firm mattress that you will find too hard for a good nights' sleep.

Think carefully about what mattress to buy. Foam may be preferable to a sprung mattress and you should definitely use a mattress made for an electric bed.

If you choose two attached single beds, it could be possible to trap your partner when lowering a section.
