  • Watching TV without turning my neck? Help please

    Hello

    I spend a lot of my time in bed due to my accident but I find when watching tv even at the slightest angle my neck gives me so much grief! I can't mount it on the wall in front of my bed because the bedroom door is there, but even slightly off centre hurts my neck. Has anyone got around this issue, do I need a TV trolley or is there a way of mounting it down from the roof directly in front of my bed?

    Just found out that you can get a TV that actually comes out of your bed, bit expensive though so might have to wait for my claim money to come through lol https://www.tvbedstore.co.uk/product...-tv-bed-frame/
    Surely there has to be a cheaper option that I can use my current tv and bed?

      i'm a C5 quad... FYI - I lay on my back when in bed... and use a projector (with chromecast) to watch movies projecting onto my ceiling... works well for me.

        There's a bunch of different ceiling mount options, of course it would need to be a flatscreen, the trick is getting antenna/cable and electricity to it.

        Here's a quick Amazon search:

          I've been using a WALI articulating LCD Monitor wall mount. It's a great product. I purchased this mount to use in my R V. I mounted it inside the entertainment cabinet on the side, which allows me to swivel it to the living room side on the front or to the bedroom on the back. The mount is very sturdy and does not sag even a little. I did a lot of research before buying this particular mount, and I must say I am very pleased, with the mount and the price. Very excellent product.

            It's not good to spend a lot of time on one's back, especially with the bed back elevated because of the excessive pressure put on the sacrum. When lying on my side to alternate the pressure I use the right angle prism glasses such as these:

              Wow never even seen these before?? I was looking at one of these TV beds once I get my money through and those glasses would be perfect for watching them in different positions. I only hope they dont give me motion sickness if I move about, did you find you got a bit motion sick with them on?

                It's not too good to spend too much time on your back due to the pressure on the sacrum, especially with the head of the bed elevated, which it must be if one wants to watch TV without some device. Even when elevated one should be careful not to exceed a certain degree angle (probably about 25-30?) to avoid excessive sacral pressure. And one should not exceed more than probably about two hours in that position.

                I would not recommend these glasses if you are on your side and you have to read subtitles. Even reading subtitles on your back may be a bit frustrating if they are small.

                But I never have gotten motion sickness from them when I use them in the sidelying position
