Double or ‘dual’ beds
These consists of two separate mattresses and bases that can either or both include powered functionality. This means one side can be adjusted during the night without affecting the other mattress so better sleep is possible for both partners.
Bases and mattresses
These bases can be secured together or separated easily using Theraposture’s locking device – offering the joint benefit of ‘bed sharing’ and access to all sides of the MND user’s mattress.
Hoists and carer safety
Access to the mattress is critical for the carer so that hygiene routines and hoisting are possible without restrictions. Being able to raise the mattress to a higher level also allows carers to attend to the person with MND without having to bend over and potentially strain their back.
This higher position also means using a hoist and sling is simpler when transferring a disabled person out of bed.
