How Could You Benefit From An Adjustable Bed?

11 July 2022

When you think of the words “adjustable bed”, do you immediately think of a cold and hard, metal-framed hospital bed? Or the mechanical-looking adjustable beds that adorn nursing homes up and down the country? Long gone are the days when adjustable beds are reserved only for the hospital wards, people are now embracing the comfort and practicality that they can bring in the home. An adjustable bed allows you to customise the alignment of the bed to achieve optimal comfort and convenience. While adjustable beds can deliver comfort-enhancing features to any user, people with back problems or those who have trouble sleeping may benefit the most. Whether you need to raise your sore legs, better support your back or elevate your head, an adjustable bed can help you to achieve the perfect position.

So what advantages can an adjustable bed offer you?

Convenience And Comfort

At the end of a long and stressful day, there is nothing better than kicking back and relaxing with a great TV series or an exciting new book. To get the full effect of this relaxing experience, you will want to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible. With an adjustable bed, you can easily adjust your position with the touch of a button. Raise your legs a little, or elevate your neck and head to get a better viewing position - you can do whatever feels most comfortable to you!

Improve Chronic Pain

Adjustable beds can offer an effective solution for chronic pain, whether in the back, legs, shoulders or neck. Tailoring the position of your bed to adequately support your joints will enable you to get relief from your consistent pain. An adjustable bed relieves unnecessary pressure placed on sore joints by allowing you to raise or lower your upper body or legs. If you set your adjustable bed into the correct position, it will contour to the natural ‘S’ shape of your spine, providing support where it is needed the most.

Enhance Sleep Quality

We all benefit from a good night’s sleep - with a typical adult needing around 8 hours each night. While we are asleep, our body works hard to regenerate, rest and repair. To get a night of good quality sleep, it is important to make ourselves as calm and comfortable as possible. Being able to achieve the perfect sleeping position at the touch of a button will help you to fall asleep faster and to enjoy a restful night’s sleep without the need to toss and turn.

We all have our own preferred sleeping positions, and you shouldn’t have to compromise on yours. Many adjustable beds allow couples to adjust their sleeping positions separately, allowing both of you to get a night of good quality sleep!

Improve Circulation And Decrease Inflammation

A good quality adjustable bed can help to improve blood circulation and decrease chronic inflammation. As these beds typically have numerous adjustability options, they allow the user to target specific problem areas. If you suffer from swollen legs and ankles or restless leg syndrome, you would benefit from raising the lower half of your body above the level of your heart. The settings on your adjustable bed will allow you to change the position of your body as often as you need to.

Optimise Posture

In a regular bed, your body lies in an unnatural position as it tries to flatten out instead of maintaining the natural “S” curve of the spine. Areas of the body that remain unsupported by a traditional bed can face undue pressure and result in chronic pain and the development of persistent musculoskeletal conditions.

Provide Greater Independence

Mobility issues can lead to a loss of independence, with those affected left feeling reliant on others throughout the day and night. An adjustable bed can help those with restricted mobility to easily get in and out of bed. They also provide the freedom to change position frequently throughout the day. A handheld remote control means the ability to move into a comfier position is at your fingertips 24/7.

Reduce Snoring

Regular snoring, while very common, can disrupt the quality of your sleep (and your partner’s!) causing you to feel irritable and sleepy the next day. Snoring occurs when soft tissue vibrates and rattles, temporarily blocking the airway at the back of your throat. An adjustable bed allows you to sleep with your head in an elevated position to allow maximum airflow to your throat and reduce obstruction. By optimising your sleeping position, you will be able to sleep soundly once more!
