The adjustable bed didn't work immediately.My husband still doesn't use his, but since I was getting one he agreed to try it, and who knows. He might need it in the future. At first I was able to do about 2 hrs. and then back to my chair. Then maybe 3 hrs. but now I sleep pretty consistently at least 5 1/2 hrs. Last night I slept 7 1/2. I used to be a great sleeper at night, but for about 4 1/2 years I was getting by with 2 hrs. and we really need that REM sleep to get rested. I was groggy all of the time. My mental capacity was dreary. Our beds were a bit more than $1,000 each, and I didn't want to take that money from savings only to find out that they didn't help. At first after we got them I felt like it was a mistake, but little by little they began to give me a bit more sleep, until now I feel like it is sufficient. I don't know if they can be rented to test it out, at one of those rental places, but it has made a huge difference in my sleep patterns. And we just got the basic ones. Good luck to your wife.
