Adjustable beds in different sizes

Adjustable beds in different sizes are not always available. Here at mobilityproducts4u.org, we have, possibly, the widest selection of different sizes.

A latex foam mattress on an adjustable base
  • 2′ 3″ is the narrowest width we offer
  • 2′ 6″ this size can be ideal when space is at a premium. Such as when someone needs nursing downstairs or in another bedroom.
  • 3′ 0″ is the size that most people consider a normal single bed. It is ideal for those people who are going to be using the bed long term.
  • Pocket springs with memory foam
  • 3′ 6″ Sometimes called a large single it offers that extra space.
  • 4′ 0″ wide beds sometimes called a three-quarter bed. Now known as a compact double bed. It can be used by two people when needed. It has one control and one action.
  • 4′ 6″ width beds are the double beds that most people know.  Called the standard double it gives even more room.
  • 5′ 0″ wide (King size) adjustable beds can either be supplied with one or two actions. With one action the whole of the mattress will be raised or lowered. Whilst if two people want to be together but have their own controls you need two actions. This is done by linking two 2′ 6″ beds together. This ensures that both users can decide where they want to position themselves.
  • 6′ 0″ wide adjustable beds are known here in the UK as Super King Size. Though sometimes the American name of Queen size is also used. Normally made up of two 3′ 0″ wide beds linked together.

First of all, select the size that you need. Then think about the mattress. Pocket springs, memory foam, latex foam or perhaps a combination of those. After being in the trade since 1959 I have plenty of information and advice I can give you.  So when you need to know more just me Robert Winchurch

on 01492 548192 or by email at office@mobilityproducts4u.org. I will offer the best advice and information for your needs,

Sunshine brings back memories

Many years ago, I was for a while, a sales representative for L’Oreal of Paris. Well, I thought I was worth it even if they didn’t! It was, looking back a wonderful training for life. Sunshine brings back memories of those days. Selling Ambre Solaire suntan products in February each year was always an achievement!

The furniture and mobility trade is a lot more fulfilling than selling hair products, well in my mind.

I met many people and learnt how to present myself especially in meetings. As well it taught me that selling is not always about getting the order, but also understanding your customer’s needs.

For instance it, back then Elnett was a very expensive hairspray and so it was fine selling it into department stores. Or even chemists shops in the more well off areas, but a shop in a less affluent would need a cheaper product.  When you called on the same shops on a regular basis it was important you got it right. Otherwise, you would find yourself unwelcome.

Mind you as a salesman with targets and a boss to report to it wasn’t always easy to balance orders and customers needs. We introduced a new product during one sales period and at the end of the first week, I hadn’t sold any! Big trouble from my Boss who couldn’t understand my customers didn’t want another hair bleach on their shelves. So I decided to use the product, Softly blonde it was called, on myself. From mousy brown to bleached blonde I got more response in my customer’s shops than ever before! All the young ladies pressurised their bosses to but the product and suddenly I went from zero to hero! I did encounter problems a few weeks later though when the roots started growing through. Nowadays though I have no hair to bleach or colour, I wonder if it was that softly Blonde!

That sort of thing was fine when I was young and footloose. Then as I have become slightly older you have to be concerned about getting both sides right.

So nowadays I do my very best to offer service and advice when conducting any sales.

It is so easy to talk to people and find out what their needs are. For instance, if someone wants a wheelchair then I need to discuss if it is a self-propelled or an attendant controlled version they need.  It is no use supplying a self propel version to somebody with limited arm movement.  They will need to be moved about by a carer or loved one.

So as the sunshine brings back memories I can think that the time I spent with L’Oreal was well worth it! That is apart from what did happen to the hair?

Time for a new mattress for your adjustable bed?

For many, it is probably time for a new mattress for your adjustable bed. But how do you choose which mattress is right for you?

The first thing to do is to ensure you are talking to somebody with years of experience in the trade. That’s why mobilityproducts4u.org should be your first site to visit. Having started in the bedding trade back in 1959 I have seen it evolve and grow.

Adjustable beds have become such a boon to those of us with difficulties that restrict our movement. To be able to lift your feet and legs up at the touch of a button can improve your circulation. Whilst raising your head can help with COPD or Acid Reflux. It is also ideal for sitting up and reading or watching television.

The one thing we all do though is take our mattress for granted. Those of us who use adjustable beds will tend to spend more time in them.  This can mean that they need replacing more often, probably about every 8 to 10 years.

What to select though;

  • Pocket Spring mattresses

  • Pocket Spring and Memory Foam mattresses

    Pocket springs with memory foam
  • Reflex Foam mattresses

    Reflex foam mattress with an adjustable base
  • Memory foam and Reflex foam mattresses

    Memory foam and reflex foam combined
  • Latex foam mattresses

    A latex foam mattress on an adjustable base

Starting with pocket Spring mattresses. They have individual springs ins calico nested pocket springs which move individually. With very comfortable fillings and tufting for extra support, they are ideal for adjustable beds.  They are also double sided and so can be turned over to give extra life to the mattress.

By adding memory foam to a pocket spring unit you remove the need to turn the mattress over. The layer of memory foam moulds to your body and removes the pressure from your joints.

Reflex foam mattresses can work in harmony with your body to give outstanding levels of support.  The filler free reflex foam mattress has good shape retention and long term durability.

Memory foam and Reflex foam combine together to provide a superior and consistent support that can suit everyone. The memory foam will be both energy absorbing and temperature sensitive. Whilst the reflex foam will add durability and shape retention.

Latex is a natural product from the rubber tree. It is hypoallergenic, supportive and works well in conjunction with your adjustable bed.

Please remember to check your bed regularly, it may well be time for a new mattress for your adjustable bed. If you cannot check it yourself then ask your family, a friend or a carer to do it for you. A mattress only has a limited lifetime and if it is more than 5 years old you should check it. If it is more than 8 to 10 years old you probably should change it!

If you would like any help or advice about a new mattress then contact me Robert Winchurch.

Sleep apnoea and wheelchairs

The sleep apnoea mask and machine work to keep the airways open and to help you breathe through the night

Not all sleep apnoea sufferers will end up needing to use a wheelchair,  but ignore the symptoms and you might!

Are self propel wheelchairs actually easier for carers to push

Sleep apnoea can have devastating effects for both the suffer and others. Normally it is the heavy snoring that is the giveaway. Some people it is the gasping when they stop breathing for that minuscule period.

Getting diagnosed is not always easy but if you do feel that you may be suffering get checked! Your doctors can refer you to specialist clinics who can then run tests. It may well be that you will need to be supplied with a C-Pap or Bi-Pap machine. The first picture shows what they are like. These machines do take some getting used to but used properly they can keep your airways open. Not only will this normally reduce or stop your snoring but will also ensure that your heart beats properly. Without proper heart beats to keep the blood and oxygen flowing there is a danger of brain damage.

When you are checked they (the sleep apnoea clinics) will be able to count the number of ‘apps’ that occur.  When mine was tested the count was 67 per hour, meaning my sleep was disturbed at least once every minute. The downside was that I had to declare it to the DVLA and they asked me to return my driving licence.

However, once you realise that people like me with big ‘app’ counts can, just drop off to sleep for no reason not driving is sensible. On the bright side if we go out socially I am the one who can always have a drink.

I am sure though, that had I not been diagnosed when I was, I would have suffered long term damage. In turn that could have led to me being in a wheelchair!

So if you or a loved one snore loudly and then stop and gasp, get checked. If you find you have sleep apnoea it could be better than using a wheelchair
