Who needs an adjustable bed?
Anyone can use an adjustable bed and the benefits can be felt by people of all ages, sizes, and indeed, people with or without a health condition. However, there are some groups for whom adjustable beds are particularly well-suited
People with sleep apnea and snorers
Adjustable beds can be great for people who suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleeping condition that usually involves loud snoring and interrupted irregular breathing. It leads to poor circulation and can even put a strain on the heart over time. It is caused by closed or compressed airways in the throat. An adjustable bed can raise the head just enough to open up those airways, reduce snoring, and improve the breathing and circulation of the sleeper.
People with joint, hip, or back pain
Adjustable beds are also ideal for people who have long term joint, hip, or back pain. Overnight, the areas in which the pain is located can often be left unsupported. In turn, this can result in the joint seizing up or simply becoming more painful as it is inflamed. An adjustable bed can move to fit the exact needs of the sleeper and they can even choose to readjust in the middle of the night if they wake up with pain.
People in care
Adjustable beds are also often used by people who are bedbound or who require care. If it is difficult to move, then a bed that moves you is great as it allows you to sit up unassisted, lie down, and ensure that you don’t get uncomfortable by remaining in the same position for too long.
How to choose the right adjustable bed
What should you consider before making a decision about which adjustable bed to buy?
Your physical needs
If you are buying an adjustable bed to support any physical ailments or to help with sleep apnea, make sure the bed you choose has the right adjustments you require. You may need your legs to be elevated to help with hip pain or a zero-gravity setting to help with your circulation while you sleep.
A more expensive bed will come with more features and (usually) more adjustment settings. However, if you scout around you may be able to find a cheaper option that has all of the settings and features you need for a comfortable night’s sleep.
Some adjustable beds come with a mattress and others do not. If your adjustable bed of choice comes with a mattress, make sure that the mattress also suits any sleeping needs you have. For example, you may want a memory foam mattress that comes with added airflow to reduce the heat of the bed as memory foam mattresses can overheat at night. Or, if you already have a mattress, be sure that it fits your adjustable bed frame and is compatible with the adjustment settings.
What extras it has
Depending on your needs, you may want a mattress that has extras like under-bed lighting or massagers. Not all adjustable bed models come with the same features or optional extras, so be sure to check that your chosen bed has everything you require.
