Adjustable Bed Know-How

Did you know that we spend on average a 1/3 of our time in bed?
That’s right!

So you would think that it is essential that we are as comfortable as possible right?

As we get older it is often difficult to have a good night’s sleep, or often we wake up feeling stiff and sore.

Yet many people young and old, are realizing the benefits of these adjustable beds and making them part of their bedroom furniture.

An adjustable bed can bring many advantages over a traditional flatbed.
The human body is not flat, as you may have noticed…

Therefore, a traditional flatbed cannot offer the support required.

This is where an adjustable bed has advantages; it can be adjusted by the user to suit your body, to offer the maximum amount of comfort.

In addition to a more comfortable sleeping position, adjusta
ble beds can often bring health benefits as well.

Two simple examples include:

  • elevating the upper body to help reduce acid reflux and heartburn
  • elevating the legs to reduce edema or swelling in the lower legs

Adjustable beds come in two main forms:

  • single
  • dual motors

The number of motors the bed has will determine the flexibility of positions to which the bed can be adjusted to.

The dual-motor offers a greater selection of positions as the leg portion of the bed can be adjusted independently of the head portion of the bed.

Adjustable beds can also be equipped with additional features such as:

  • massage
  • heat functions

As with traditional beds, adjustable beds come in a variety of sizes, and they are:

  • single
  • double
  • queen
  • king

Dual beds are also available which consist of two side-by-side beds which can be adjusted independently to one another, which is ideal for couples who like to sleep in different positions.
