Frequently Asked Questions About Adjustable Beds

What is an electric adjustable bed?

An electric adjustable bed is a bed that has an adjustable back and leg rest. These beds have orthopaedic benefits, allowing you to elevate your back and legs to create additional support, as well as adding extra comfort. 

Unlike a standard bed, adjustable beds make it easier to find a comfortable sleeping position. An electric adjustable bed will also provide improved postural support, allowing you to find an ideal sleeping position. 

Some of the adjustable options you can use to customise your bed include:

  • The size of the bed
  • The style of bed you prefer
  • Your headboard type
  • The material used in your bed
  • The type of mattress you want to use

Our electric bed frames come with an easy to use handset, although a full set of instructions will be provided when you make a purchase. At the touch of a button, an adjustable bed allows you to conveniently change your bed position to provide postural support and the ultimate in comfort. 

Opera electric adjustable beds can be tailored to suit your needs, as they allow you to find a comfortable position for sleeping at night.

Our spines have a natural 'S' shape which conventional beds don't conform to, which sometimes leads to back pain. Using your remote control, you can make your bed align perfectly with the curvature of your spine.

Opera adjustable beds are different to most other electric beds on the market, as they host an array of advanced smart technology, including:

Please note that light, massage and wall-hugging upgrades are offered as optional upgrades.

All the information you need to make an informed decision can be found on this page. If you decide you need a little more advice, why not speak to one of our friendly advisors?

How do adjustable beds work?

Each bed comes with a straightforward electric handset that allows you to change the orientation of each section of the bed to find a comfortable sleeping position. 

You can change this yourself, or use a selection of pre-programmed positions that have been specially created for ease of use. One example of this is our anti-snore position, which gently elevates your head to open your airways.

The process of using our electric beds is effortless, as the handsets are designed for ease of use. They also have a light feature and all the buttons are backlit, enabling use in the dark.

We have a range of sizes available to suit every need. If you share your bed with a partner or spouse, you can even buy a split double/twin bed. This gives both people the option to choose their own sleeping positions, as each side of the bed is independent of the other.

A particular favourite is Our Opera® Motion Adjustable Bed. This bed can be purchased in a variety of sizes which includes our dual sizes two sizes: either as a king dual bed (150cm/5ft) or as a super king dual bed (180cm/6ft).

Adjustable Beds for the Elderly

For many elderly people, staying mobile and active is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your health and keep you feeling well. Additional mobility supports, such as adjustable beds, riser recliner chairs, and even tools like shower chairs, railings, and walking frames are all great ways to keep you moving and ensure that you’re able to stay active as safely as possible.

Adjustable beds have a huge range of health benefits for elderly people. As we get older, muscles and joints can stiffen and weaken, reducing mobility in lots of different ways. Conditions like arthritis and oedema are also more common as we age.

Adjustable beds can help by:

  • Reducing back pain and joint pain
  • Making it easier to get out of bed
  • Improving health by keeping you mobile
  • Improving circulation
  • Reducing pain caused by arthritis
  • Reducing swelling in the extremities and preventing conditions like varicose veins

Adjustable beds for seniors can be a brilliant tool to help maintain independence and keep you mobile and safe in your own home. They can also be used to alleviate the discomfort associated with a range of conditions, giving you more than just a good night’s sleep!

Why should you choose an Opera® adjustable bed?

Opera adjustable beds are a step up from regular slatted adjustable divan beds, as they offer better quality and enhanced comfort, as well as a vast range of features.

We're experts in the design and manufacture of mobility beds - here are just some of the reasons why you should choose an Opera electric bed:

Our adjustable beds are a great investment, with options to suit every need. If you'd like to find out a little more about these features, get in touch and we'll be able to help.

What are the benefits of using an Opera® adjustable bed?

Electric adjustable beds have a vast array of features that can enhance comfort and give you a better night's sleep.

An electric adjustable bed is now a necessity for many people - particularly if you’re struggling to sleep at night. Some of our beds also come in double sizes, which means you don't have to sleep in a separate bed from your spouse or partner, giving you an extra bit of comfort when sleeping.

All our dual adjustable beds come with two hand controls, allowing each side of the bed to be adjusted individually.

A full range of health benefits

One of the main reasons that people buy adjustable beds is due to the positive effects they can have on your health. An electric adjustable bed can increase your overall well-being, as well as better quality of sleep.

One of the main features included within our adjustable beds is the zero-gravity position.

The zero-gravity position was first invented by the American Space Organisation NASA. It was designed to ease stress on the bodies of astronauts in space, replicating weightlessness. However, it can also have a positive impact on your sleep health on Earth.

Zero gravity is a safe sleeping position and is associated with improved comfort and sleep quality. The zero-gravity position helps to:

  • Reduce pain and swelling
  • Increase heart health
  • Improve your breathing
  • Prevent acid reflux from forming

Available as a pre-programmed position on your handset remote, the option of zero gravity is made easy with our adjustable beds.

Some of the other medical benefits that our electric beds have include:

At Opera, we also have a massive range of mattresses and other accessories that can help you with your health.

As you can see, using one of our electric adjustable beds can have a positive effect on your health - particularly as you get older.

If you're worried about pressure sores or pressure on your back causing pain, our collection of pressure care mattresses could be the perfect solution when combined with one of our beds.

Added comfort and support

Our electric beds are perfectly designed to help you with your everyday aches and pains, as our exclusive sleep technology will ensure you get a decent night's sleep - which can be difficult when you have a disability or an illness that causes pain when sleeping.

If you suffer from insomnia or find it hard to drift off at night, using an adjustable bed will allow you to change your sleeping arrangements to suit your needs.

By raising the backrest, there is no need to rearrange your pillows or use someone else to help you get comfortable in bed. Our electric adjustable beds also give added support over a conventional bed/mattress, making sleeping much easier.

Improved quality of sleep

One of the main advantages of using an adjustable bed is that it will improve your overall quality of sleep, making you feel a lot more rested than sleeping on a standard bed. If you're uncomfortable in bed, you're likely to change positions a lot, which may lead to you waking up more often.

With our electric adjustable beds, you're sure to have a better night's sleep, as you can use the electric handset to create a comfortable position that suits your needs. On average, you should change your mattress every six to eight years, and studies have shown that getting a new bed and mattress can improve your quality of sleep in general. Sleeping with your legs elevated has many health benefits, such as improving circulation and relieving back pain.

You're sure to wake up feeling refreshed every time you go to sleep, ready for the day ahead!
