Benefits of adjustable beds
- Alleviates pain
While there are various benefits to adjustable beds, the most common is that it helps alleviate pain for joint sufferers, people with injuries or even those with conditions like arthritis. Having the option for adjustable sleeping positions allows you to customise the angle of the bed in various zones depending on what you prefer or require. If you have joint pain in your knees, raising the lower half of your bed might alleviate some of this pressure and ensure you have a long and comfortable sleep.
- Improves sleeping
A lot of people who experience asthma find adjustable beds drastically improve their sleeping experience. If you find that you wake up feeling short of breath or feel like you haven’t had a restful sleep, elevating the top half of your bed can help open up your airways and allow you to breathe easier throughout the night. Other people who have enjoyed adjustable beds are those that suffer from Edema. Edema is where fluid collects in the body which then can cause severe swelling or pressure. This can be extremely uncomfortable and hard to relax when on a regular bed, however, adjustable beds allow you to customise the angle of each zone to help alleviate this pressure. People tend to notice their legs are commonly affected so elevating the lower half of the bed can help drain the fluid from your legs to reduce swelling.
- Increases independence
As you age, it can be increasingly difficult to do simple tasks that would normally be completed with ease. One common task that seniors report to be challenging is getting up out of their beds when they wake up in the morning. An adjustable bed allows them to regain independence and adjust the bed to their liking. This is also particularly helpful for those that have recently had surgery and require certain body parts to be elevated or positioned specifically to decrease recovery time and improve post-op care.
While being propped up by mountains of pillows in order to sit up in bed to read the daily newspaper used to be the norm, nowadays, this isn’t so much the case.
