All beds come as standard with a High Quality Qflex Mattress.
The Helston double Carers bed is an ideal Carers bed for someone looking for extra space in their bed. This bed has separate motors to profile the bed at the head-end or the foot-end, and again separate motors to vertically raise the bed up to 18 inches from the starting position (standard height; 23 inches). Our new Carers profiling bed can be raised flat for the carers to wash or turn the patient, or it can be used to help the person stand out of the bed like a riser recliner chair (must be sat on the edge (in the middle section) of the bed), or it can be raised whilst adjusted at the head and foot-end to get a comfortable high position to look out of the window.
The vertical lifting frame can be put into any of our adjustable bed surrounds, so choose the profiling bed you like (from the home page) and add the vertical lifting frame (in the mechanisms tab drop down), this will add the cost of the mechanism to any bed, or choose the combination as shown on this page.

Dual beds have independant controls and independant matttresses. You will generally have a vertical lifting mechanism on one side of a dual bed, so if you are purchasing a 5ft dual bed you will only need one 2ft 6 vertical lifting mechanism.
Double beds have one mattresses, two vertical lifting mechanisms with a special linking cable, if the person always uses only one side it will go out of sinc by about 1 inch and will have to be raised to the highest position to align again most times it is used.
