And what are other ways to ensure you get a proper night’s kip? Try these helpful suggestions…
What Is An Adjustable Bed?
Adjustable beds are electronically controlled, and can be profiled into a variety of different positions. The most common position being the contouring one, which is designed to mould to the natural ‘S’ shape of your spine. This helps to reduce pressure points and can lead to a better night’s sleep. There are many different benefits that an adjustable bed can have on your life, as explained below.
1. Improve Your Sleep And Ease Insomnia:
As well of all the above health benefits which can improve your sleep, adjustable beds offer the benefit of being able to adjust your bed to a position that you feel 100% comfortable in. This will enable you to be able to fall asleep faster and avoid tossing, turning and changing sleeping positions throughout the night.
It is also easier to fall asleep when your body is getting the optimum amount of oxygen, and when you have good circulation.
2. Reduce Snoring:
Snoring often occurs when lying flat on your back. This is because the neck is putting extra weight on the windpipe, causing it to close slightly. Not only can snoring affect your own sleeping pattern, but it can also affect your partners too. By sleeping with the head elevated, you can reduce the likelihood of snoring. This is because oxygen can flow more freely than it can when you are lay flat on your back.
3. Relieve Aches & Pains:
An adjustable bed can benefit chronic pain sufferers. They can provide temporary pain relief from conditions such as arthritis. The position of the bed can be adjusted with the simple touch of a button, allowing you to find an angle that is most comfortable for you, and helping to relieve pressure points.
Adjustable beds are also a particularly good reliever for back pain. This is because they contour to the natural ‘S’ position of your spine, unlike an ordinary, non-adjustable one.
4. Help To Settle Your Acid Reflux:
Even those who aim not to go to sleep with a full stomach can still be affected by heartburn and acid reflux. The symptoms acid reflux can often make it hard to sleep, which can lead to other issues when awake such as lack of concentration and mood swings.
By elevating your upper body by six inches, you can help to reduce the symptoms of acid reflux. This can be done with ease with an adjustable bed. An adjustable bed is a much simpler solution than propping up multiple pillows, which can move around in the night potentially causing you neck and back pain.
5. Improve Your Posture:
Since our spines are formed in a curved ‘S’ shape, lying on your back on a standard bed can be bad for your posture. This is because when you lie on your back on a traditional bed, you are putting additional pressure on unsupported areas. Subsequently, this lack of support can lead to back pain as well as other spinal conditions.
A good sleeping posture can be achieved by sleeping on an adjustable bed. This is because the mattress contours to the natural shape of your spine, offering maximum support.
6. Re-Gain Your Independence:
Individuals with restricted mobility can often feel like they have lost their independence, especially when they can no longer undertake tasks that were once so simple, such as getting out of bed.
Our adjustable beds can help to assist you in getting into and out of bed. With just a simple touch of a button on a handheld remote control, you will be able to adjust your sleeping position and get out of bed easier than you could with a standard, non-adjustable bed.
7. Improve Your Blood Circulation:
Relaxing and sleeping healthfully are key components in maintaining good blood circulation. Elevating your feet above the level of your heart helps to improve blood circulation. Of course, this elevation can be achieved by putting pillows under your feet, however, this method only works successfully if you sleep on your back and barely move around. An adjustable bed will keep your feet and ankles raised no matter what position you sleep in.
