Alaska Mattress Variator

Product Code: ALA

The Alaska Mattress Variator is our most popular pillow lifter. With a unique fold out system the Alaska is extremely versatile. It is designed to fit to almost any single, double, 3/4 or king sized bed by folding the wings in or out as required.

This hand controlled device is designed to raise and lower the head to an upright sitting position and effectively solves the problem of how best to lift and support the client when they need sitting up or laying down in bed.

The Alaska is fully portable and is fast and easy to set up by sliding the Alaska under the mattress and strapping it onto the bed. It is designed with a centre driven actuator that is virtually silent. The Alaska is approved and used by both Private and NHS hospitals.

” Many thanks for your excellent service in supplying a single Mattress Variator with double straps on a trial basis. The Variator was a success while my mother was staying, and we shall be taking you up on your offer of a Hire Service next time my mother comes to stay.”


“I suffer from Multiple Sclerosis and until recently found it extremely difficult to get in and out of bed. However, on the advice of a friend I purchased a “Mattress Variator” which enables me to get in and out of bed with ease and without discomfort to my body – by merely pressing a button on a panel the size of a TV remote control handset. This very silently raises and lowers my mattress.”
