    Are you looking for a specialised one? Other is it that they get broken and you need to keep replacing them? I know some
    oids who have got special extra sturdy ones that last a lot longer. 

    My daughter got a special bed from our OT but it took almost exactly a year  :#

    They sometimes come up on ebay, I have seen a few on there recently. 

    This is website is good:

    Quite a few companies have ex demo ones or beds that have been returned as they didn't suit. But they can still be very expensive. 

    If if you don't get anywhere with OT there are some charities that do grants. I think there is a page on here with some links.

    Do you need a bed ? or just the mattress...... Don't get conned into buying a frame that you don't need . With my disability i actually bought an electric adjustable bed off e-bay ( was a company .. disabled ) and got it VAT free , just by sending an email with my scanned in DLA form. Otherwise . just go look for a memory foam mattress from a show room and make sure u get to lay on it for at least 15 mins ( to let body heat mould the foam around you /or not depending on comfort) . I would never go back to a sprung mattress
