Electric Adjustable Beds & Fireside Chairs

Thursday, January 26th, 2012 by morethan

There is no doubt that January is a long, long month and in spite of those bulbs already blooming in some areas it is still quite a long run until Spring proper.  At least the television has been better than pre Christmas (not much to beat of course) but the jury in the office is out on Birdsong, beautifully shot but wasn’t it just a bit achingly beautiful but slow ….? A bit heavy on meaningful looks and a bit short on dialogue – maybe it will redeem itself in our eyes next week!

Now whether you like to be tucked up in bed with a telly in the room or comfortably ensconced beside the fire we have just the thing for you to settle down of an evening.

Electric Adjustable Beds

If you did not order one of these in time for Christmas perhaps now is the time to treat yourself?

  • Great choice of beds from 2ft 6” or 3ft Single, 4ft 6” Double, 5ft Kingsize or 6ft SuperKing
  • Choose from Reflex Foam, Memory Foam or Pocket Sprung Mattress
  • For couples you can order a dual control/mattress so each side can operate independently so you do not have to negotiate with a partner as to the best angle to cosy down or get up from
  • Wooden Bed Option
  • Optional Extras
    • You can easily order just the basic electric adjustable bed but there is a wide range of options available to order – from headboards, drawers (although do consider whether drawers are practical since they can get quite heavy) to massage systems, heavy duty control options, grab rails, etc.

Whatever you think you might like, have a browse through the Electric Adjustable Bed section on More Than Mobility or do give us a call – we know there are so many possible combinations that it can be a bit confusing so just call us with your requirements and we can sort out your options and give you a firm quote for the bed and delivery – engineer delivery highly recommended.

Fireside Chairs

We are known for our wide range of Rise and Recline Chairs but do check out our Fireside Chairs which are non adjustable but designed with supportive and comfortable high backs and seats. Fireside chairs provide excellent head, neck and lumbar support so are often a good option for those who suffer from back pain.

New Year & January Sales!

Happy New Year

Well the New Year is properly under way and we hope that 2012 will be a peaceful one.  It does seem that 2011 with Royal Weddings and lots of sport just whizzed past so we expect 2012 with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics and Paralympics will turn out to be similar.

Our thoughts are turning to sandwiches, scones and cake with a nice pot of Assam tea.  A treat these days with everyone so busy, but we have discovered that for many elderly people across the country it is the only real contact they have with other people and can be a real lifeline.

We are talking specifically about Contact the elderly, an established charity that does a brilliant thing – it brings together volunteers who open up their home and provide an afternoon tea on a Sunday afternoon to a number of local elderly people, who are taxied to the house by other volunteers.  Just a few times a year for the volunteers, once a month for the visitors, it keeps people a little bit more connected and provides something to look forward to in the diary. 

At More Than Mobility we were inspired by the way Contact the elderly has quietly gone about this since its founding in 1965; and we will be supporting them this year as one of our charities of the year.  You can find out about them by visiting their website , please do consider volunteering or donating.

Many of our customers suffer from Arthritis, some of the 10 million people in the UK who have arthritis. More Than Mobility’s other charity of the year is Arthritis Care who are a fantastic resource for sufferers.  Check out their campaign to “walk around the world in 50 million steps” or just have a look at the work they are doing across all forms of this widespread problem:

NEW Category

We have added a new Bed and Chair Accessories category to our website to make it easier to find items such as over bed tables, bed rails, mattress protectors, chair raisers, etc.   We recommend a browse:

Finding stairs a bit much?

This time of year is when many people decide that a Stair Lift is a good investment.   Somehow the long dark days of winter are bad enough without having to struggle with stairs.  If you or a relative would like a free no obligation quote do give us a call on 0800 046 3949

January Sale Offers

We recommend taking a look at our January Sale Offers on our website – it has been very busy since the start of the year (we opened on the 2nd and we just haven’t stopped since). 

We still have all colours available on the special offer Leather Rise and Recline Dual Motor Lars Chair at £649 which is great value, the single motor chair is also in stock and is priced at £549.

Please accept our best wishes for 2012 – as always please give us a call about any requirement and we are happy to source products for you if we can.
