    Bed lifts

    I was wondering if anyone has had a positive experience with mattress lifts. I want to keep the same mattress that I have been using over the years because my body is used to it and I don't have any current skin problems. However, transfers have been a bit more difficult and I'm looking to just raise the bed up and down a foot or so, but keep the same mattress.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you folks for your consistent wisdom.

    We have Lippe IV by Burmeier (Germany) and it works great. It's a bed insert that we could use on our existing bed.

      That looks like what I need. So for queen bed – it will lift the whole mattress up to assistive transfers and mobility. Many thanks. I just need to find a United States representative

        We have what is equivalent to a king (I think) with 2 individual mattresses. I'm not sure if there is a model available for one big queen or not.

        I there are other posts about high/low powered beds, and maybe doing a search you can find US versions. Here is one I remember because I posted in it /forum/showthread.php?t=130486
