What to Look for in an Electric Adjustable Bed?

When shopping for electric beds, particularly for home care or personal comfort, there are several important features and factors to consider to ensure you choose the best option for your needs. 

Here’s a comprehensive guide on what to look for in electric beds:

1. Adjustability

Electric beds should offer a range of adjustability options. Look for beds that allow for changes in the head, foot, and height positions. 

This feature is crucial as it helps users to easily get into and out of bed, and can also significantly aid in daily activities like reading, eating, or watching TV comfortably from bed.

2. Hand Control Functionality

The ease of use through a hand control is essential for anyone with mobility issues. Check that the hand control is user-friendly and has clear labels for all functions. 

3. Build Quality and Stability

The bed’s construction should be robust enough to handle regular use and movement adjustments. 

A well-built electric bed will not only last longer but also provide a stable and secure platform, which is particularly important for those with limited mobility or balance issues.

4. Safety Features

Safety features such as side rails can prevent falls and provide added security when getting in and out of bed. 

Some beds also come with safety cut-offs to prevent accidental damage to the motor or the user in case of a malfunction.

5. Mattress Compatibility

Ensure that the electric bed is compatible with the type of mattress you plan to use. In particular side rail height above mattress is a legal requirement to be adhered to.

6. Weight Capacity

Check the weight capacity of the bed to ensure it can support the weight of the user along with the mattress. This is crucial for safety and the longevity of the bed’s motor and frame.

7. Size Options

Electric beds come in various sizes, from single to king-sized. Consider the amount of space available in your room and your specific care needs when choosing the size. Some beds offer dual adjustability for couples, which allows each side to be adjusted independently.

8. Extra Features

Look for additional features that can enhance comfort or meet specific health needs, such as built-in massage systems, heating pads, or the capability to tilt the bed to various positions to assist with medical conditions like acid reflux.

Profiling Beds: Enhanced Comfort and Independence

The Bello Sonno Single Profiling Bed epitomises the blend of functionality and style. This bed features a 90cm/3ft wide lying surface with electric height adjustment, making it ideal for individuals seeking both comfort and independence.

The ease of use and aesthetic appeal make this bed a top choice for those who wish to maintain a pleasant living environment without compromising on care necessities.

Electric Adjustable Beds: Tailored Sleeping Positions

For those who share their space but require individual care, the Bello Sonno Double Profiling Bed is a perfect choice. 

It offers independent adjustability for each side, allowing couples to stay close without compromising on individual comfort and care needs when it comes to adjustable electric beds. 

The electric profiling capabilities of this bed mean that each person can choose their sleeping position, crucial for those with specific mobility issues. Additionally, the ability to move the beds apart for cleaning or care purposes ensures a practical solution for maintaining hygiene and convenience in a shared space.

Height Adjustable Beds: Safety and Accessibility

The electric profiling and height adjustment features provide additional comfort and ease for caregivers during routine tasks, making it an excellent choice for individuals with dementia who require extra care. 

The inclusion of a padded headboard and footboard adds an additional layer of safety and comfort, making the bed not only functional but also exceptionally safe for vulnerable users.

Versatile Bed Sizes and Features

For those looking for more space or needing a bed that accommodates caregivers, the Impulse 400 Small Double Residential Bed offers a wider lying surface and robust design features like hidden wheels and optional footboard heights. 

Its electric height adjustment and profiling capabilities make it adaptable to a range of care scenarios, providing comfort and independence without sacrificing safety. The additional space in this electric adjustable bed also allows for easier care management and the possibility of using the bed for rehabilitation purposes, which is particularly beneficial for long-term recovery processes.
