I have a couple of existing autoimmune disorders and am also in the process of being assessed for Lupus and early onset R.A owing to recent R.A symptoms and positive bloods for ANA. I also have a 20 year old daughter who has recently been diagnosed with spondylitis, but she does not know whether or not it is of the autoimmune variety as yet. (She did not ask the Orthopedic team and nobody bothered to tell her.)
In any event, my daughter wants a new bed - a hospital bed, basically, where the feet end or head end (or both) can be controlled by remote control.
I watched one in action in a well known bedroom furniture shop and was instantly rather worried (you can literally fold yourself in half by remote control).
Surely, this type of bed isn't meant for someone with arthritis etc in their spine? ,
Can anyone please enlighten me as to the way forward (in terms of beds/mattresses) for my daughter, please?
Many thanks in advance.
