Q. How do I / we choose my / our mattress?
A. The individual weight and other issues / health conditions determine if one requires a soft / medium or firm mattress. One also has to try pocket spring and memory foam mattresses to feel the differences and seek which better is preferred.

Q. What is the ideal length of the bed?
A. It is important that the bed is to be approximetely 20cm longer than the talles person. Most recommended length is 200cm, unless a person is taller than 180cm.

A. Most common width for a single bed is 90cm , however should the user be bigger in size one is to consider a wider bed, such as 100cm and also 120cm, so as to make it easier for one to toss and turn. When it comes to a double bed, it is important to ask if the bed is static or motorised. Ideal sizes for a double bed are 180 x 200cm , and 160 x 200cm for more restricted bedrooms. Smaller or bigger beds exist as well.
Q.What are the advantages of a motorised bed?
A. A motorised bed can serve mainly for 2 different aspects. Entertainment such as watching TV, reading and using a lap-top is one of the reasons motorised beds are preferred. However minor conditions such as sinuses, reflux acid, water retantion and others, also require the assistance of a motorised bed for adding comfort.
Q. Is it best to buy a double mattress for a matrimonial bed or 2 seperate single mattresses?
A. It is always recommended that trying out the different types of mattresses is done individually. If a couple have different weights and body structures, it is many times the case where a couple will not agree about the same mattress density and feel. For example if a male weighs 90Kg. and a female weighs 50Kg. it is very unlikely that they agree to have a similar mattress. One tend to feel that a mattress is too soft while the other says it is too hard. If this is the case, then a couple should consider getting 2 seperate single mattresses according to their personal preference. The advantage of 2 single mattresses is that tossing and turning will not effect the partner, and also should one consider to go for motorised beds, this would be possible.
Q. How safe is it to sleep on a motorised bed.
A. Motorised beds are today equipped with a transformer not only to lower the voltage but to assure that health and safety are applied. Also most of the high standard beds have a relay device wherby the power of the bed will be temporary switched off, and therefore no electrical field lies underneath the user, until the remote is given a new command.
Q. What kind of remote controls are applied with motorised beds.
A. There are diffent types of remote controls that one should consider using. The wired remote control is very safe however not so comfortable to handle like the cordless ones. The IR (infra red) remote is very common today, but the most advanced is the RC (radio control), where one may control the bed by pointing the remote anywhere in the room. PS. Persons using a pace-maker are to consult with their doctor if it is safe for them to use an RC remote.
