Getting high quality sleep the night before is the best way to prepare for a new day. But many regularly toss and turn at night, struggling to get the much needed sleep. The reason behind it may be in the way our bodies are created – they are not flat so when sleeping on a standard flat bed, the pressure points on the legs, hips, and backs can prevent us from getting truly comfortable. The solution to this may be an adjustable electric bed.
What is an Adjustable Bed?
In short, an adjustable bed is a bed which has a multi-hinged lying surface which can be adjusted in a number of different positions. This is due to the fact that it has the ability to form a curvature in order to match the body’s alignment.
Positioning the adjustable electric bed properly can allow you to sleep more comfortably, especially if you like to sleep on your back. For those that have a problem with snoring, lying flat may only worsen the situation. When in this position, the neck puts extra weight on the windpipe causing it to close and make the noise known as snoring. But when the adjustable bed frame lifts the head, gravity allows for the weight to be taken off the windpipe, thus reducing the snoring problem. Also, for those who have swelling issues due to fluid retention in the body, elevation is a must and that’s why they might find relief through using an adjustable bed that can elevate the legs above the level of the heart. Additionally, people dealing with arthritis can find temporary relief as the bed can be moved into many ergonomic positions in order to help reduce the pressure on the joints.
What Works Best for You
An adjustable bed frame can raise your head, feet or both. Some models feature single head adjustment to assist in raising the upper body – like when you want to read in bed or have a breakfast in the morning. Others have dual electric motor base, allowing you to elevate both the back and legs simultaneously resulting in a more comfortable raised position than a single motion bed base. Adjustable bases with three or four motors can also be found. For added convenience many other features can be included, like for instance head and foot vibrating massage, LED lighting under the bed and USB charging ports.
