Bed mattresses are self explanatory – they are a mattress used in a bed and you sleep on it. Mattress overlays are usually full size (i.e. they match the size of the mattress) and are overlaid on the top of a mattress. Elevators and positioning aids are items which either elevate the actual mattress or elevate the pillows to enable those who are unable to sleep flat to find the perfect sleeping position on a slight incline.
Our dedicated team have spent many years working in the mobility aids and daily living products sector. They are very knowledgeable about the products we sell. They work with Kate Makin, our Occupational Therapist, to ensure that they provide the best advice when it comes to information about our thousands of mobility aid products.
Our range of mattresses are mainly pressure relieving ones, and, unlike many found on the high street, are specifically designed to provide support for those who require some sort of pressure care.
Many mattress overlays have special properties, such as pressure relief, or are ripple styled to allow air to flow through to cool you as you sleep.
Elevators will help you to raise up from a lying position, preventing any straining if you trying to lift up by yourself.
Positioning aids for the bed also include items like foot boards, which help to prevent you from slipping lower down the bed.
Our range of mattresses and mattress overlays have been designed to provide optimum comfort in bed. We all know how important getting a good night’s sleep is for our health and wellbeing.
If you find that you are unable to sleep due to pressure ulcers or general discomfort whilst laying down, you may find that a pressure mattress or pressure relieving mattress overlay is the answer. They are ideal if you find that you need to spend a long time in bed either sleeping or recuperating. Many of the pressure relieving mattress overlays are inflatable which allows you to adjust the density of the item to suit your specific requirements.
Elevators and positioning aids for the bed are ideal if you find that pillows alone simply do not provide the level of support you require. Our range includes bed wedges, mattress tilters and mattress variators.
The most important point, when considering one of these bedroom aids, is the size. These bedroom aids come in a range of different sizes, so do check that the one you are considering will fit on your existing bed.
If you are considering a mattress variator, then you will need to ensure that you have an electric socket close by your bed, as these are usually powered through a 3 pin plug.
