Bed mattress lift

Since DW uses that area under the bed/mattress for her clothing and she gets tired of having to lift that darn thing even though I have 100# gas struts, having a electric lift would be really cool for her. Any suggestions on this one?
Got some idea's, no doubt someone has done this mode already.

Bed mattress

The new 100# gas struts do an outstanding job holding the combo up, its the initial lifting part that is so tough on her to lift. Need to come up with an electric gear drive lift at this point..

You can alsp move the bottom brackets on the gas strut in a little.....I found that about 2 inches further in made the bed easier to go up.
