Q: I have just acquired an electric bed but it needs a new mattress the mattress I have and haved used is an orthopedic one of good qaulity can I just use this mattress on the electric bed or not? Question from Eugene Dullaghan


The secret of having a good night’s sleep is the mattress and bed base you choose. Always remember that a ‘bed’ is a mattress and a base working together, you should not consider them in isolation and should ideally always try them together.  We always recommend you buy them together because the two are designed and manufactured to complement one another in terms of support. 

The other issue with an electric bed is the fact that they cause the mattress to bend.  If your mattress has not been designed with this in mind then over time the spring unit may become damaged.
