Adjustable beds

Just wondering if anyone might recommend a certain make of adjustable bed. With my Parkinsons I'm having a tough time Looking at a twin size.

Do you have Bob's Furniture up there? We got our adjustable bed (with memory foam mattress) from them at less than a third the cost of the comparable "Temperpedic" model. I can't tell you what a difference it has made for me, both in terms of restful sleep, and in terms of getting up less creaky in the morning. (Dave likes it because it's great for watching TV in bed.

We have Temperpedic me thinks. Do you like the memory foam. I tried one once and found it hot? I need one just to launch me out of bed. Having a terrible time with stiffness. And yes I'm on my laptop in bed too much now while watching CNN lol.

Temperpedic might make a motorized platform to put under the bed you already have, if that might be something to look into for you.

I don't like temperpedic/memory foam, myself--they hurt my joints.

Karen does this statement make sense
Memory foam: Memory foam beds are designed to provide maximum comfort and stability and align to the contours of your body. Many people find them to be more comfortable because they ease the contact with pressure points on the body.
◦Coil: Coil beds can provide excellent support but don't always work well with adjustable bed bases. It's important to choose a coil bed that is flexible and able to adapt to an adjustable base. They provide strong support and tend to be quite durable

The memory foam mattresses have a cooling gel layer on top now. They aren't hot anymore.

i LOVE memory foam... Enough that we replaced the mattress in our trailer (which was already a residential quality coil spring mattress with a memory foam mattress as our joint anniversary present last year!

Sounds right to me! Our adjustable bed is a "split king", which is basically like two extra long twins butted up against each other. Each bottom side has its own sheet, then you have a single king sized sheet (and blankets) over the top. The best of both worlds! (...AND, it would go up our small, arrow older stair case. )
