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 both together to give you maximum comfort for sleep or rest throughout the day.

With our large adjustable mattress range, we are able to customise the mattress to suit your body size and requirements. All adjustable mattress models promote pressure relief, improving circulation and reducing muscle and joint stiffness.

The Hi-Lo adjustable bed provides the same functionality as the  adjustable bed with the added capacity of height adjustment from the floor to bed base between 310mm to 610mm. This makes it easier for you to get in and out of bed as well as easier for anyone who may be providing professional care such as a physiotherapist.With the adjustable bed set in a low position you will be able to get into bed with greater ease than usual.

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

The Hi-Lo Easy-care electric adjustable bed is a must for anyone having difficulty getting in and out of bed after surgery or suffering other health problems and also assists carers and other health workers to provide professional care.

How To Choose The Right Mattress For Your Adjustable Bed

While advice commonly given when buying a new mattress suggests that ‘you try as many as possible’ we have done the ‘try before you buy’ for you.  Our range of mattresses represents the best selection available on the market suitable for adjustable beds. Each mattress provides a high level of comfort and support, a good life span as well as being covered in natural fibre, allowing your skin to breathe. Remember you can combine the adjustable bed base with any of the mattresses.

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

What mattress is commonly supplied with Adjustable Beds?

The Pillow-Top Innerspring Adjustable Mattress is our best budget buy 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. The flexible spring system 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?

The Deluxe Zoned Pocket Spring Mattress has become the preferred choice of our customers as of the last 12 months of being released.

Picture a honeycomb structure with hundreds of self-contained zoned coils. The coil structure allows each spring to react independently, adjusting to your bodies’ weight independently to relieve pressure evenly. The different weight rated coils are zoned into sections giving addition support through the hip area while softer at head and feet zones. 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.”

The memory foam Pillowtop component of the mattress also assists with support of your body weight and adds to the overall sense of comfort.

The edges of a “zoned pocket spring” contain a side support system to retain shape while entering and exiting the bed.  A common issue with cheaper mattresses and especially innerspring are sagging sides. If the edges of your mattress collapse and sag then it is considerably harder to get in or out of your adjustable bed.

What if I am sensitive to dust mites or mould?

All of our adjustable mattresses include Enviro Fresh Protection Standard

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-freshattacks mite populations in two ways: firstly, by acting as a contact repellent forcing mites to move away from treated areas, and secondly, by inhibiting the growth of natural food sources such as yeast, moulds and bacteria.
  • Enviro-freshhelps 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


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 from 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 with a soft top layer of quilting.  This combination provides a luxurious, spongy feeling, without the sense of sinking in to the mattress. The inbuilt flutes in the latex 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. Environmentally friendly and naturally healthier a Latex Gold mattress is the perfect mattress for some people!

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

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 time after you have moved.

Sensitive to weight and pressure a memory foam mattress moulds to the body shape supporting the weight evenly rather than at the points of weight concentration at the head, shoulders and hips as in regular mattresses. The even distribution of support provided by the latex promotes better circulation and helps prevent pressure ulcers.

Pressure care range also offers you the choice of a quilted or waterproof cover.

Both normal and bariatric mattresses are available in all sizes.
