What makes the Flex-a-Bed Hi Low SL adjustable bed different?
The additional benefit of the Hi Low is in its name. (Think "high low")
The entire Hi Low bed base can be adjusted to various heights, from high to low and vice versa, making it easier for users to get in and out of bed and caregivers to care for bed-bound patients at a height that is comfortable for them. And if the standard height mattresses make the bed height too tall, you can use the optional 5.5" Low Profile Polyurethane Foam Mattress instead. The adjustable bed base height can also be lowered 2.25" by removing casters.
As you can see, lots of "high low" options there to get that bed height just right for you and/or your caregiver!
This full-electric Hi Low adjustable bed is ideal for…
- Those in home healthcare, or assisted living environments because, in addition to its body contouring adjustments, it can also be raised and lowered vertically with a touch of a button. This makes it ideal for those who require additional assistance when entering or exiting the bed.
- Caregivers also appreciate the extra height or lower lows because less bending means less stress on the back.
- Anyone who wants the comfort benefits of an adjustable bed at home.
"Everything we could have hoped for!
Before ordering the bed, I had an adjustable bed but my caregivers were suffering back pain and finding it hard to position me and work with me in the bed. It became evident that we needed a bed that raised and lowered. This bed with everything we could've asked for, they solved the problem my caregivers we're having. We are extremely satisfied!"
What's better for me? A hospital bed or an adjustable bed?
Because they're elegant and lack the institutional look, adjustable beds are a great alternative to hospital beds. However, if you need more position adjustments or need a higher weight capacity, then we suggest you choose a hospital bed over an adjustable bed. Hospital beds are also easier to clean and sanitize.
What if I don't need the vertical height feature in the Hi Low?
If you don't require a "high-to-low" vertical height adjustment, likely now or in the future, you may want to consider one of Flex-a-Bed's more economical options.

Flex-a-Bed – The brand you can trust for adjustable beds
Adjustable beds, with their flexible base, can be adjusted for the upper and/or lower body to provide a variety of benefits.
If you need relief from the symptoms of injury, chronic pain or illness, or you're bed-bound, there's nothing more refreshing than an adjustable bed. You can raise your feet to get pressure off the back, or your head to alleviate snoring and some digestive issues.
Or just put yourself into a comfortable seating position to eat, read or watch TV in bed. For these reasons alone, adjustable beds are now popular choices for any home.

Multi-layered cushion top
Hi-Low adjustable bed mattresses feature a plush, multi-layered, quilted cushion top made with hi-density, polyurethane foam and flame resistant polyester fiber
Non-skid bottom layer
Bottom layers are protected by a non-skid material that prevents the mattress from sliding across the adjustable foundation and provides a flame-resistant barrier
Inner bonded for durability
Entire mattress construction is inner bonded to insure durability and superb tailoring throughout the life of the mattress
Soft, high quality knit fabric complete with suede border and designer taped edges to create an elegant look
All quilted top mattresses (except "Low Profile") are approximately 10.5" high at crown (9.5" high at edge)
6 mattress choices to meet every need:
The deluxe innerspring mattress
High density, polyurethane comfort layer and innerspring unit available in soft, medium and firm. Innerspring mattresses feature a beautiful knit fabric quilt panel with a tack and jump pattern and suede border with designer taped edges.
Available in soft, medium, and firm options.
The low profile mattress
Reduces the overall height of the bed by 4 inches, making it easier for people with limited mobility to get in and out of bed. It's also great for those who prefer a minimalist style.
The innerspring/memory foam combo mattress
Combines the support of innersprings with the comfort of memory foam. It's great for side and back sleepers, combination sleepers, and hot-natured sleepers, but not ideal for those who prefer a softer mattress type.
The memory foam mattress
Cradles every curve of your body while providing support for joints and pressure points, making it great for side, back, and stomach sleepers under 230 pounds. It may not be the best option for hot-natured sleepers or those who need to move around easily.
The gel memory foam mattress
Creates a cooler sleeping surface, making it perfect for hot-natured sleepers and side sleepers, but may not be the best option for cold-natured sleepers.
The natural latex foam mattress
Provides a soft feel and dynamic support for proper alignment. It's great for those who prefer a firm mattress, have joint pain, or are light sleepers, but may not be the best option for hot-natured sleepers or those who prefer a softer mattress type.
