Pragmatic Adjustable Bed Frame – Outstanding Price
It is very heavy steal frame. It can support 1,600 lbs. for Twin or Twin XL size and 3,200 lbs. distributed weight for Full, Queen, King and Cal King. Frame is provided with 4 very quiet electrical motors (smaller size has 2 motors).
One of the motor operates the head section, while the second one is for foot section. Head part can elevate up to 80 degrees and foot goes up to 30 degrees. All the movement is controlled by wired remote control.
This platform bed is very helpful for people with movement issues. Also great bed for elderly person, where you don`t have to worry about putting extra pillows in order to elevate the head section.
Getting in or out of the bed is much easier and quicker.
Elevating the head section you can also avoid the burning pain in the chest. In another words it can be considered as natural reflux treatment.
Assembling Takes About 1 Hour
Sometimes reviewers claim that the box arrives beaten up. But no need to worry since frame inside is protected by Styrofoam.
The Instructions are not very straight forward, at least at first sight.
People working in home medical equipment center claim that this is very well built frame. Maybe the foot section does not elevate as much as the medical bed, but as soon as the lower section goes above the chest level it fit for purpose.
By now you have probably already realized that it is perfect when you want to watch movie or just read a book. Being in the almost upright position you can even enjoy snack while watching TV. (Not sure what will do with the mess though:) )
One of the advantages this bed has, is that it can be folded up and stored if you don`t use it for a while. Dimensions in folded state you can find the table below.

Pragmatic Adjustable Bed Pros And Cons
- Very quiet motors. You barely hear them. Great range of elevation.
- Great product (also) for older people who can not move that briskly. They can get in and out of the bed much easier. Eventually very helpful for their relatives as well.
- Comparing to similar product, you save hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
- Remote control with wire. It is bit oldish, but if you don`t mind the look of 80`s you should be OK with that.
What Have We Found Out
Despite the old looking wired remote control, this bed is really good deal for the price.
It does not have the USB port, special lightning or memorized position. For Such price you would not expect such cool features, we believe.
And If you do find better deal, please leave us a comment below. We really would like to know.
2) Lucid Adjustable Bed Base – 5 Minutes Assembly
Whether you are watching your favorite movie, browsing internet on tablet or you just want to have a nice breakfast, this Adjustable Bed offers you great comfort for reasonable price.
Twin XL costs just below $450, if you need Queen size you can get it for $700.
Assembled in 5 Minutes
It really takes only a while.
Basically you take it out of the box, screw in the legs, attach cables to power box, turn it over, plug into wall and you are all set.
NOTE: Have somebody to help you as this base is heavy and with the electrical units attached, you want be careful while moving the base.
So Lets break it down a bit. You get following parts:
- Remote Control (including 2x AAA batteries)
- 6 Legs (2 are already pre-attached)
- Retainer Bars (to prevent mattress from slipping while adjusting the bed)
- Electrical “stuff” (Power cord and power supply box)
Put the bed on the floor upside down, or in another words with mattress site on the floor. Screw in 4 unattached legs. You probably have noticed that there are two holes next to each other.
You can decide which one to use. Or in another words, which fits you best. Really, it is about your preferences – where you want to locate your legs.
Make sure that you also tight the pre-attached legs.
Now you can connect the power cord to the power supply box. Take a look at the power supply box. There is a room for 2 9 Volt batteries.
You dont really need them. They are only as the back up batteries, in case your power in house goes out. Should that be tha case, your bed still will be operating.
As one of the final steps, turn the base back on the legs. Last piece you are going to install is the mattress retainer. That might be a little bit tricky. You insert one side of the retainer into the bracket and using pressure insert the opposite site.
If you have king size bed you obviously gonna have a 2 twin units. Now you want to make sure that both units are paired together, assuming you have one mattress.
How to pair the together ? Take the remote control press both upper buttons (Head Control Raise + Foot Control Raise) together with little blue button on the power cord. Hold it until you hear 2 beeps. Your both sites are now paired together.
Your bed is pretty much ready. If you are going to decide for the Twin XL size, it is recommended to use the King size mattress.
What makes this base special comparing to regular bed is the independent elevation of head and/or foot section.
People with lower back problems find the opportunity to raise their foot very helpful. In such position you release the pain in the back.
To mention some downsides;
If for whatever reason your remote does not work, go contact the manufacturer. They react very promptly and you will get the replacement even if you miss just a washer or some other part is damaged. We are enclosing their email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
In same cases people find that the mattress slips a bit even-though the retainer is attached at the bottom. Should that be your case just get the non slip pad.
Basically no further issues have been found with this model. In fact person working in hospital claims that motors at this base operates much quieter than those they use in hospital.
