Choosing an adjustable bed
It is very important to ensure you are measured and advised on the use of a profiling bed before committing to buy one. You will need to know that the height is correct for getting in and out, and that the bed is low enough to minimise injury from falling out. You will need to know that the type of mattress is correct to prevent pressure issues. You will need to know how to operate the bed safely, along with any accessories that may be fitted.
