Advantages of Adjustable Beds

Adjustable beds have been used in hospitals and for in-home patients for quite awhile now. However, they are becoming more and more popular for general use. Adjustable beds are defined as a bed in which the head and foot sections can move to different comfort levels. Ever since I was a little girl, I remember seeing commercials for adjustable beds on T.V. Adjustable beds aren’t just for a patient anymore. They are for anyone who wants a little more versatility from their bed.

Some advantages of adjustable beds include:

1. Electrical motors. All of the adjustable beds on the market today use electrical motors. These motors work efficiently to move either section up or down. Many beds also offer extra settings. These settings can include a heat setting, a massage setting or both.

2. Medicinal Purposes. Adjustable beds have long proved to have several medical advantages. Some of their medical benefits include: the improvement of circulation, relieves lower back pain, decreases tension, improvement of breathing, decrease of acid reflux, etc. Adjustable beds allow the sleeper to sleep or rest in the semi-fowler position. This position is where the head is elevated to 30-45 degrees. Adjustable beds are also used often for patients who have recently undergone surgery.

3. Reading or relaxing. Many people like to read, watch T.V. or relax in their beds. Traditional mattresses can make it somewhat difficult to relax in bed. I know that reading often makes me extremely sleepy or uncomfortable when I read while lying flat. Adjustable beds make it easier to relax in bed. You can read while sitting up an lying down.

4. Comfort. Some people find traditional mattresses uncomfortable because they are so flat. Some people prefer to sleep while inclined at an angle. Adjustable beds provide the perfect amount of comfort for these people. They can relax to the position they want with just a push of a button.

Adjustable beds became available for general use in the 1960s. People have found them to be very comfortable and supportive. Adjustable beds are still used in medical settings. They work well for surgery patients, acid-reflux sufferers, chronic back victims and more. Check out adjustable beds if you are looking for something more from your sleep experience.
