Adjustable Beds

What is an adjustable bed?

Adjustable beds are upholstered electric beds that are designed to provide comfort and ease mobility for disabled and elderly users. They have a 5-section electric mattress platform that allows the user to raise the backrest to sit up in bed and raise the legrest to elevate their legs. All functions on these electric beds are operated through a handset control with options on some models of wired handset, wireless handset, or smartphone app controls.

All the electric beds for sale below can be purchased with a mattress and a headboard. In developing this range of adjustable beds, we have been relentless in ensuring all beds balance life-changing mobility functions with elegant, homely design. For ultimate comfort and relaxation, these mobility beds also come with a range of optional features such as under-bed lights, mattress massage, storage drawers, and more.

Choosing an Opera® design

There are three bed models to choose from, each with their own headboard designs. The three base types are:


Opera® Mensa

The Opera® Mensa Adjustable Bed is the entry-level model in the Opera® range. Mensa beds have a five-section adjustable base which is operated electrically through an easy-to-use palm-size handset.


Opera® Columba

The Opera® Columba Adjustable Bed incorporates an intelligent memory technology which allows users to program their preferred platform positions. The electric five-section adjustable base is operated through a backlit handset.


Opera® Auriga

The Opera® Auriga Adjustable Bed is a premium bed with an upholstered five-section mattress platform, fabric lined frame, wireless control options, and an integral foot-end drawer for storage. All headboards are floorstanding.

Configuring the base


Single beds (2ft6 & 3ft)
All of our adjustable mobility beds are available as single width beds. You can choose a small single (2ft6) or a standard single (3ft).

Dual beds (5ft & 6ft)
These electric beds are also all available as dual action beds for two people. You can choose king size (5ft) or super king size (6ft).


Each Opera® bed design has a choice of headboards. All of our headboards are designed, crafted and upholstered here in Britatin to a high specification. Opera® headboards all have a unique mattress backboard that neatly conceals the headboard struts when the electric backrest of the bed is raised.


All of our Opera® Adjustable Beds are upholstered in a high quality woven fabric. The fabric has a cosy soft-touch, supple texture and exceeds stringent fire and durability requirements ensuring it is suitable for use in domestic homes, retirement villages, and care homes. There is a choice of 10 house fabric colours on all Opera® upholstered electric beds. On bespoke orders for interior design schemes and fit-out projects, customers are able to supply their own material or choose from our extensive range of custom upholstery fabrics which includes hundreds of colourways and patterns.


On the Mensa and Columba designs, you can choose to have storage drawers in the side of the bed base. For the Auriga bed, a fabric lined foot-end drawer is part of the design.

Completing the bed set


The adjustable orthopaedic beds are available with a range of compatible comfort mattresses. All Opera® comfort mattresses are British made using high specification fillings and covers to ensure maximum comfort, airflow circulation, and postural support. Browse our range of adjustable comfort mattresses. Features such a five-zone massage therapy are availble on selected mattresses.


A number of accessories can be added to your bed package. All beds are available with a grab handle to assist mobility and also an overbed table for comfort in the bed. Dual beds can be controlled through one handset if you add a synchronisation kit. The Opera® Columba and Auriga beds can be purchased with motion sensor underbed lighting.
