You see, an adjustable bed is suitable for so many things that it is easier to list and explain these rather than reeling them off in a very long list.
Let’s start with some background information about adjustable beds so that you can get a good idea of how they are so versatile.
Historically adjustable beds were the type of heavy clanky beds on wheels that you found in hospitals and nursing homes. You know the kind with the noisy foot pedals to enable you to lower or raise the bed with the cot sides to stop you from falling out. On top of that, they usually had a kind of clumsy ramp attachment at the top of the bed to enable you to be propped up with numerous pillows. These beds were often relatively vast and very unwieldy for the porters and staff to move around.
They are handy beds, so the modern version is so very welcome and popular.
You see, in 2014, adjustable beds now look like regular beds or indeed look like very smart and ‘must-have items of furniture, and the list of benefits over standard beds is quite extensive.
Adjustable beds give extra customised support in the five critical areas of the head, neck, back, hips and knees. These are all areas prone to strains and injuries, and if injured or painful, then these are all areas that require extra support whilst we are in bed.
Today, adjustable beds look just like regular beds, so there is no stigma attached to a ‘therapy’ or ‘invalids’ bed. Electric beds are much more comfortable than traditional hospital beds.

Benefits of an electric bed
Electric beds are adjustable at the head and feet positions. Moving them can improve circulation for someone who is bed-bound for long periods. This action also reduces bedsores, fluid build-up in the legs, joint and back strain and a range of other complications associated with being bed bound for long periods.
2. Comfort for the Patient
There are benefits for patients associated with electric beds that do not apply to traditional mattresses. Aside from being more comfortable due to fewer bedsores and irritations, electric beds also allow patients to change positions for different tasks. Reading, watching and eating are all easily done from the bed without any physical effort, keeping the patients supported and comfortable.
3. Care Giver Assistance
Being an in-home carer is a physically demanding job. Over time, this can lead to problems for the carer such as back pain, exhaustion and joint pain. By using an electric bed, carers can safely and support themselves electrically rather than physically while they eat, get changed, change dressings, etc.
The bed is made to look like a regular bed and not like a hospital bed. This “normal” design can have a calming influence on a home and is less dramatic than a traditional hospital bed. We have a range of electric beds in different sizes available for sale at Beechfield Healthcare.
