Electronically Controlled Adjustable Bed Height.

Do you need (or will you need) 'Home Care'?
If so, check with your carer-organizations. Because of new Health and Safety Regulations, they will not come to care for you unless you have a bed that has a Vertical Hi-Lo action. So before you spend your money, be sure you are not wasting it.
Mario Piraino says: Always remember: if you are on an adjustable bed with your chest or feet elevated – DON"T TURN ONTO YOUR SIDE!! (at least only for a very short time) This can cause a lot of strain and stress on your L2-L5 area.
