Why Choose Opera Profiling Care Beds

Posted by Hannah Ashworth on October 12, 2022

Opera are a leading British manufacturer who are dedicated to stylish design and the power of technology with everything they make. 

Opera create beds and mattresses that enhance people’s lives, promote health and deliver comfort. They are recognised as trusted manufacturers for adjustable beds and mattresses across the care, hospitality and consumer sectors.

Established in 2004, Opera's founding family started out with hundreds of years of combined experience from the furniture, care and manufacturing industries and were determined from the start to take a fresh approach and embrace much-needed style and technology.

In partnership with Opera Beds, Ability Superstore now offer profiling beds to suit your needs. Designed with comfort and usability in mind, an Opera electric bed will ease nursing care and enable a better quality of life.

The Many Benefits of Opera Beds

Traditionally, an electric bed has an adjustable backrest, footrest and knee-breaks. Opera Profiling Beds offer these and other useful features such as height adjustment to prevent falls and Trendelenburg tilting to help those with respiratory conditions. These additional functions assist carers and nurses with helping those needing support or people who have limited mobility. 

Electric adjustable profiling beds provide you with a lot more flexibility than a traditional bed and Opera beds have a super quiet motor to provide you with an undisturbed sleep.

You can raise the leg rest to improve circulation or the back rest to find a comfortable reading position that doesn’t take a toll on your posture.

If you find a position particularly comfortable, you can save it and come back to it at any time.

Dual control adjustable beds have separate profiling mattress platforms and remotes, so you can adjust your side of the bed without disturbing your partner, or arguing over who has the remote!

Opera Classic Profiling Bed

The Classic Profiling Bed is an ideal nursing bed as it can be raised to a height of 80 cm (31.5 inches). This provides an encompassing height range suitable for all heights of carers and nurses, effectively reducing the risk of back strain.

The profiling bed can also be lowered to assist in getting in and out of the bed. The extensive height range is one of many impressive features with these profiling beds.

This bed also allows you to use the Trendelenburg function, so the whole bed can be tilted forward or backwards. This is really beneficial to the health of people who may suffer from respiratory conditions, and it also improves blood flow.

The Opera Classic Profiling Bed also has an inbuilt safety feature on the easy-to-use remote, as you can activate a locking feature that disables all functions or just the Trendelenburg functions for optimal safety.

It is possible to save money by choosing an unenclosed head/foot board on the Classic or have it upholstered and enclosed. In addition, this bed is available in three wood colours.

This profiling bed accommodates mattresses of different materials and sizes. Even mattresses up to 20 cm (8 inches) deep remain fully compliant with bed rail regulations. This eliminates the need for extension height side rails and further risk assessments should the user require a deep alternating air mattress.
