View Full Version : New bed

2nd October 2012, 21:16
Hi All

Mum needs a new bed as hers is as hard as a rock and she is getting back pain. Does anyone recommend a particular type of bed maybe a profiling one? dont know that much about them only that she needs something that will give her some support as well as some comfort.
Many thanks

My OT and district nurses provided me with a hospital bed. Not only does it provide comfort and support but it does everything apart from sing and dance.

My wife's OT supplied her with a hospital bed and also a pressure relief mattress to guard against getting bed sores. You can adjust the mattress to how soft or hard you like it.

there are different types of hospital beds, i think deffintly one with electricity/ air- but mum had to work hard at getting a more comfy one as some of them are not too good- in plymouth they only have a limited stock of the good ones

Hi Kate

I use a Tempur and find it the best bed I ever had.
