For those considering an investment in an Electric Adjustable Bed, please read on to see the advantages they can bring.
Find a Suitable Sleeping Position
An adjustable bed allows the user the option of customising their sleeping position to their own personal preference. This aims to provide a more comfortable night’s sleep. A standard bed only has the ability for us to sleep in a horizontal position which in time places pressure on joints and can lead to aches and pains. With an adjustable bed the top and bottom half of the bed can be raised to take the pressure off where needed. The most popular incline people opt for is between 30 and 45 degrees which offers more support than lying flat.

Snoring affects a large percentage of the population. If it is only an occasional occurrence then there is probably nothing much to worry about. However if it is becoming a regular thing it could start to have a negative impact on your health. An adjustable bed can help in the fight to combat snoring. They allow the user to sleep in an elevated position which allows for the airways to remain open. You can also adjust your body better with the help of your adjustable bed, snoring is worsened when lying on your back as you put pressure on the tissues present in your lungs airways. With these beds you can comfortably manoeuvre yourself onto your side to help combat the snoring.
Like snoring, asthma, and sleep apnea are breathing problems that can be improved by raising the head end of the bed. Sleeping in a raised position reduces obstructions from the nasal passages improving airflow, allowing for a healthier uninterrupted night’s sleep. When sleeping flat, oxygen is restricted therefore in this raised position oxygen can flow more freely decreasing the chances of asthma attacks.
Adjustable beds are also recommended for a variety of other medical conditions, including spinal disorders. They can reduce joint compression and aim to minimise any aches and pains after a night’s sleep. For sufferers of lower back pain adjusting the bed to a minor incline with extra support under the knees can help alleviate pressure on the spine. This also supports the natural curvature of the spine as well as reducing tissue inflammation and encouraging good circulation.
The beds can be adjusted to heights that allow moving to and from a wheelchair easier. They can also be adjusted to the most appropriate height for getting in and out of bed, making the user feel more independent.

If you have limited mobility poor circulation can be a common problem, especially for elderly people. Varicose veins and ulcers can be worsened by extended periods of bed rest. To overcome these issues, movement and exercise are required. However, for some people that just isn’t an option. With the use of an adjustable bed boosting circulation can be made possible, raising your legs above your heart allows blood to flow into the lower limbs and can prevent swollen legs and feet. To enable this, all that is required is to raise the lower half of the bed (medical advice is recommended in this situation).
