So I am bending to get my mom raised from bed. I initially felt it was a good work out. Maybe so if I stregnthen my other muscles first so my lower back does not do all the work. But until such time, I am looking for an adjustable bed. We are all under 5 ft and I have no clearance for a big bulky hospital bed. Those manual metal ones appear to have complaints regarding having to crawl under them to adjust the lever to raise the back. Anyone agree that I should probaly make something to raise the back like a piece of plywood and a hinge so I can have a smooth process of caring for my parent at home?
