What is an Adjustable Bed?
Why choose an adjustable bed?
If you have a medical problem, adjustable beds can be used on the recommendation of your doctor or physiotherapist. However, they aren’t limited to those with health concerns. If you’re looking for a customisable sleep experience, an adjustable bed is a great option.
The three core benefits of an adjustable bed are:
- Relieving chronic pain
- Adjustable beds help you recline in various positions and angles based on your needs. This can help ease chronic pains related to arthritis, sciatica, and various other issues. The option to select different leg and head positions takes pressure off aching joints, giving you time to recover as you sleep and ensuring less pain and easier mobility in the morning.
- Improving your circulation
- Lifting either your upper back or lower body improves circulation and can assist with recovery from mobility issues. For example, if you suffer from oedema in your legs, you could benefit from an adjustable bed. Position the bed so your lower half is above heart level during the night to alleviate some stress.
- A better night’s sleep
- Sleep is the body’s chance to recharge and the more comfortable you can make yourself, the better-quality sleep you’ll get. Adjustable beds help you find the perfect sleeping position, enabling you to fall asleep faster, remain asleep longer and wake up more refreshed.
Lifestyle benefits of an adjustable bed
- Reading or watching TV
- Instead of sitting uncomfortably in a regular bed, an adjustable bed can offer an elevated seating position that will eliminate any neck or back pains.
- Different sleep positions for couples
- If you or your partner prefer different sleeping positions, adjustable beds have remote controls so you can adjust your own side of the bed.
- Work life
- Those who are stood up most of the working day can suffer from swollen feet. Having a bed that elevates your feet at night will reduce swelling and may help prevent the chance of developing conditions such as varicose veins.
- A healthier, comfier alternative to a regular bed.
Medical conditions helped by adjustable beds
It isn’t just those with lower back problems and mobility difficulties who can reap the benefits of an adjustable bed. If you have ‘all over’ painful conditions such as fibromyalgia and ME, as well as issues such as hiatus hernia, gastric reflux or heartburn, an adjustable option can help.
If you’re recovering from surgery, you might find adjustable beds more comfortable than a standard sleeping arrangement and, at the same time, they can help with circulation. An injured leg or arm, for instance, can usually always benefit from being elevated.
If your partner is a big snorer, you will love an adjustable bed, since often raising the head can eliminate – or certainly reduce – snoring. Plus, if you have to stand on your feet for hours at a time during working hours, raised legs at night can help with circulation.
Health benefits of an adjustable bed
- Mobility issues
- Adjustable beds can be lowered or raised if you struggle to get in and out of bed.
- Back problems
- Set the perfect sleeping position to help ease any back pains you may have.
- Post-surgery recovery
- Promotes healthy circulation and improves comfort if you are bed-bound.
- Rather than using pillows or cushions to raise injured body parts, adjustable beds allow different injuries to be elevated to help reduce swelling.
- Sleeping in a more upright position reduces the chances of airways being blocked helping to reduce snoring.
- If you suffer from digestion issues, an adjustable bed allows you to sleep in a raised position to help process food more effectively.
