best bed for disabled

If a disability is preventing you from manoeuvring yourself into comfortable sleeping or resting positions in bed, then our British made, high quality adjustable beds could be the answer.

With so many companies to choose from, choosing the best bed for the disabled can feel a little daunting. The good news is there are some simple things to consider which can help make your choices easier. For example, a practical bed that doesn't look like it's just come out of a hospital ward is perfect so it doesn't feel medical.

Our beds have all the practicality you need to manoeuvre yourself in and out of bed, but design with style in mind.

1. Fitted To You And Your Needs

Firstly, you should look for a bed fitted to your individual needs.

Whether it's backache, joint pain or something else, a bespoke adjustable bed can ensure you are provided with some temporary positional relief while you sleep.

Our adjustable beds are built to ensure you are correctly supported along all points of your body. This helps you to enjoy some temporary positional relief for you to enjoy a great night’s sleep.

2. Helps You Get In And Out of Bed With Ease

Secondly, if you find the task of getting in and out of a normal bed difficult, an adjustable bed makes it easy and effortless.

Using the simple-to-operate hand-held electric control, our powered beds adjust your body position smoothly and effortlessly, offering you supreme comfort, correct support and helping you to get more of the rejuvenating sleep you need.

3. Consider Your Level of Disability

Certain disabilities naturally cause you to have to spend more time in bed than others. Additionally, the best bed for the disabled should adapt to your needs over time should your disability worsen.

The Adjust4Sleep Medical bed, for example, is fully height adjustable as well. This means it can be raised and lowered providing easy access for caring needs.

4. Don’t Forget The Mattress!

A frame should not be considered in isolation when finding the best bed for the disabled. Your mattress is equally a very important factor as it offers you as much or little support you need.

An orthopaedic mattress, for instance, can really help to provide those who are disabled with the support and comfort they need.

5. Financial Support

If you need a specialist bed due to your disability, or it will help you to live independently at home, you may be eligible to get one through your local authority. Your first step should be book an assessment through your local council.

You may also be eligible for VAT exemption which could save you 20%.

6. Can you Have a Home Demonstration?

There are local and national retailers near the town high street but they aren’t always the easiest to get to. Especially if you have a disability.

As you know, the trend for shopping is increasingly moving away from expensively run shops and towards a more personal experience from reputable online retailers.

At The Adjustable Bed Factory you can choose to have a home consultation where our adjustable beds are demonstrated in the comfort of your own home by experienced product specialists.

7. Look For Experience

Trust in quality too. As a general rule of thumb, look for well-established names with decades of experience, especially if they have good reviews from other happily satisfied customers.

In short, the best recommendations come from people who are looking for the same comfort and support that you are.
