The Dorchester is Sherborne’s premier model of adjustable bed. Designed with style and comfort in mind, the Dorchester features a dual motor so that the upper and lower body can both be adjusted into optimum positions individually. This motor allows the back to be raised, to help with those with breathing difficulties, whilst raising the lower body helps prevent swelling. The dual motor allows for a near infinite number of sleeping and sitting positions, and once you’ve found the optimum positions for you, these can be programmed into the bed’s memory for easy access. Each bed also has a maximum user weight of 25 Stone.
