Is there a specific bed or mattess that is recommended to help with sleep

Does anyone recommend a specific bed or mattress to help my son sleep? We are having to turn him over at least six times per night, he is 17 with DMD and can't turn himself over. If anyone has any suggestions please help we need more sleep at night.

My son is 19 and uses a hospital bed with posturepedic 4 inch pad on top of spring pad.  We also use pillows and wedges.

He has contractors in his knees so his legs are not straight so wedges on the other side of his thighs do the trick when he is on his back.  On his side we have pillows one behind his back and the other between his legs.

A typical night we turn him 3 times, when he is sore or not feeling well it could be up to six times a night.  It goes with the territory unfortunately.

We have the ProBed for our son. It works great.  I don't know what insurance you have and if it would be approved but our son loves it.
