Benefits Of An Electric Adjustable Bed After Hip Surgery

Benefits Of An Electric Adjustable Bed After Hip Surgery

Our electric adjustable beds provide welcome relief and assist many people on their return home and recovery from hip surgery.

The electric adjustable bed allows you to elevate either the foot or the head separately, or together, to maximise your sleeping and rest comfort. Not only do we have an extensive range of adjustable mattresses, but we are also able to customise the mattress to suit your body size and requirements. Furthermore, all of our adjustable mattress models promote pressure relief, improved circulation and reduced muscle and joint stiffness.

The Hi-Lo adjustable bed provides the same functionality as the regular adjustable bed, with the added feature of height adjustment from the floor to the bed base, with a range of 310mm to 610mm. This allows you to get in and out of bed with ease and facilitates anyone who may be providing professional care, such as a physiotherapist.

When getting out of your Hi-Lo adjustable bed, you can also raise the back rest to be able to sit up. Once upright, you can swing your legs around so you are in a seated position on the side of the bed. The bed is then able to rise, lifting you to your feet. A side pole is also recommended to provide a firm fixture to grip.

As you can see, this bed is a must is you're experiencing difficulty with getting in and out of bed after surgery, or if you're suffering other health problems which limit your mobility.

Our range of mattresses represent the best selection available on the market and are all suitable for adjustable beds. Each mattress, covered in natural and breathable fibres, provides a high level of comfort and support, as well as a long life span. And just to make life easier, you can combine the adjustable bed base with any of the mattresses we sell.

So...which adjustable bed mattress is the best for you?

What mattress is commonly supplied with Adjustable Beds?

Pillow-Top Innerspring Adjustable Mattress

The Pillow-Top Innerspring Adjustable Mattress is our most popular budget mattress. It represents excellent value for money and provides a good level of comfort and support. The open ended innerspring coils are joined together through flexalators top and bottom, which are able to move separately in response to weight. This inbuilt flexibility gives you comfort, with the body of the coil providing the support and this flexible spring system also allows the mattress to bend easily as the adjustable bed base moves.

The Pillow Top Innerspring is available in a soft, medium or firm pillow top.

What is the ultimate adjustable bed mattress?

Deluxe Zoned Pocket Spring Mattress

Since its' release, the Deluxe Zoned Pocket Spring Mattress has become the preferred choice of our customers.

Picture a honeycomb structure, with hundreds of self-contained zoned coils. The coil structure allows each spring to react independently, independently adjusting to your body's’ weight to relieve pressure evenly. The different weight rated coils are also zoned into section, which offer additional support around the hip area, yet are softer at the head and feet zones. The memory foam Pillowtop component of the mattress also supports your body weight and adds to the overall sense of comfort. In fact, real world testing has shown the pocket spring mattresses to be the most comfortable type of mattress for this reason.

“Even weight distribution promotes a supreme level of comfort and a good sleep.”

What if I am sensitive to dust mites or mould?

All of our adjustable mattresses include Enviro-Fresh Protection.

We use a multi-function anti-microbial product which simultaneously works to kill a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi, moulds and house dust mites.

  • The hygiene and safety of a wide range of everyday items can be protected by the application of Enviro-fresh.
  • Enviro-fresh attacks mite populations in two ways. Firstly, by acting as a contact repellent forcing mites to move from treated areas, and secondly, by inhibiting the growth of natural food sources such as yeast, mould and bacteria.
  • Enviro-fresh helps prevent the spread of disease and infection caused by contact with fabrics which have been contaminated by sneezing or coughing.
  • Enviro-fresh also maintains odour-free surfaces by killing the moulds which produce the smells.

To further protect against dust mites and other nasties. A mattress made of Latex could be the answer

Pure Latex Gold Mattress

Our Pure Latex Gold Mattress made from 100% New Zealand latex (rubber) is known to be the highest quality latex on the market. A latex mattress should last for 20 to 25 years. They are a great option for allergy sufferers as the natural properties of latex inhibit mould and dust mites.The Latex Gold mattress has a firm inner core of latex and a soft top layer of quilting. This combination provides a luxurious, spongy feeling, without the sense of sinking into the mattress. The inbuilt flutes in the latex also allow air to circulate assisting in heat and moisture dispersal. As Latex Gold is by nature, an insulator, it will warm to your individual body temperature to prevent over-heating. Environmentally friendly and naturally healthier, a Latex Gold mattress could be just what you are looking for.

What is the best Adjustable mattress for a person who is bed bound?

Pressure Care Memory Foam Mattress

The Pressure Care Memory Foam Mattress is ideal for people who are in bed for extended periods of time. ‘Memory foam’, also known as ‘viscoelastic’, is made from polyurethane. It has a different cell structure from other foams making it less ‘springy’. As a result, the foam is slower to recover – retaining the ‘memory’ of the weight or shape for a long period of time after you have moved.

Unlike regular mattresses, memory foam, which is sensitive to weight and pressure, moulds to your body shape and evenly supports your weight, rather than offering support at various weight concentration points such as the head, shoulders and hips. This even distribution of support provided by the memory foam and latex promotes improved circulation and can even prevent pressure ulcers.

Our pressure care range also offers you the choice of a quilted or waterproof cover, with normal and bariatric mattresses available in all sizes.
