Beds: Understanding Variety

While we spend a significant portion of our time in bed, many of us may not fully grasp the wide range of options available or the myriad of brands vying for our attention. In this article, we aim to demystify the world of care beds, helping you understand the different types, so you can make an informed decision when it comes to choosing the perfect bed for your needs. We also take the opportunity to introduce you to a new supplier on the Manage At Home Website, Opera Beds.

Electrically Adjustable Divan Beds

A divan bed is a type of bed that consists of a solid base or frame with a mattress on top. These bases can also sometimes contain drawers. Electrically adjustable divan beds have elevating head and feet sections as well as knee break, similar to a hospital bed, to provide the user with more positioning options to maximize comfort. Visually, they look like a normal bed as the base remains still and only the mattress platform moves when adjusted.

They do not have overall height adjustment. There are a range of mattresses available, which are compatible with these beds.

Divan beds are popular for their practicality, as they combine comfort, functionality, and style. They come in various sizes and styles to suit different preferences and bedroom décor.

Profiling Beds

A profiling bed, also known as an adjustable bed, electric bed or hospital bed, is a type of bed that can be adjusted to various positions electronically. They have elevating head and feet sections as well as knee break and are usually fully height adjustable, operated by hand controls. They provide customisable support and comfort.

The height adjustment allows users to set the appropriate height to get in and out of bed, or to support others providing assistance, reducing the need to reach over.

Profiling Beds are beneficial for individuals with mobility issues, chronic conditions, or those who require assistance with getting in and out of bed. These types of beds are also particularly useful for those spending prolonged periods in bed and want remain comfortable.

The adjustable positions of a profiling bed can help with activities like reading, watching TV, eating, and improving circulation, whilst the height adjustment supports carers and the use of hoists or other manual handing equipment.

There are different types and models of profiling beds available, each with its own specific features and functions.
