6 Health benefits of using an adjustable bed

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

Adjustable beds have been around for years. An adjustable bed is just a bed that has a multi-hinged lying surface. This surface can be changed to rest in many different positions. The most common adjustment for an adjustable bed is inclining the upper body and raising the lower body, independently of each other.

Adjustable Bed

Adjustable beds have been used in hospitals for decades. Adjustable beds have become a popular trend in home health care in the past thirty years. The reason that these beds have been used in the medical field for so long, and are becoming more popular for the general public’s use is that they have so many health benefits. Let’s talk about some of the many health benefits of an adjustable bed.

1. Lower back pain. Adjustable beds have been proven to ease lower back pain. Lying on a flat surface doesn’t always keep your spinal curves aligned properly. Using a memory foam mattress with an adjustable bed can keep your spine aligned properly and supported naturally.

2. Shoulder and Neck Tension. Many people go to bed with neck and shoulder tension from a long, hard day. Many mattresses and beds do not take away this tension, but add to it. Adjustable beds can keep the upper body elevated and can keep the natural curve of the neck aligned. Some adjustable beds even offer massage settings that can really relieve shoulder and neck tension.

3. Circulatory issues. Certain mattresses and beds create pressure points because they are too firm. Pressure points decrease the amount of circulation in your body. Sleeplessness, numbness in arms and legs, and a feeling sluggish are all effects of decreased circulation. Using a memory foam or latex foam mattress with your adjustable bed can actually increase your body’s circulation. Keeping your legs and upper body slightly elevated while you sleep can also eliminate circulatory issues.

4. Asthma and other breathing difficulties. Many people who suffer from asthma have a hard time at night. By keeping the upper body elevated takes pressure off of the lungs. When this pressure is taken off of the lungs, breathing becomes much easier. Other breathing difficulties can arise while sleeping. Keeping the legs elevated can stimulate the entry of fluid into the circulatory system and out of the lungs.

5. Edema. Edema is when an abnormal amount of fluid builds up in the body. It can cause major swelling in the hands and other extremities. Keeping your legs elevated can significantly reduce edema.

6. Acid Reflux. Many people around the world suffer from acid reflux. It is caused by the lower esophageal sphincter relaxing too much. When the sphincter relaxes this much, it allows stomach acids to leak back into the esophagus. Doctors recommend elevated the head and upper body to reduce acid reflux.

There are countless health benefits to using an adjustable bed. You might find more health benefits than someone else. Adjustable beds and the right mattress can significantly improve your health.

4 Advantages of Adjustable Beds

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.
