Double bed

Description
Two separate beds at the same height are used as a double bed. The user has an electric adjustable bed. The control unit sits in a holder. She uses a handle on the outside to help her turn over.

Users comments
It is difficult to find a bed frame for both beds. The family could not find a double bed with a frame that allowed the user’s bed to be adjusted up and down. They chose two separate beds instead.
The holder for the control unit was chosen because the cord was short and the unit kept going all over the place. Previously she had a unit with a longer cord and she did not need a holder.
