The people who design adjustable beds realize that it’s not a good idea to try and match a flat mattress to a body that has curves. That’s because a flat mattress cannot provide the proper back, neck, and hip support that you need in order to sleep more soundly and wake up without mattress-induced body aches and pains.
An adjustable bed is designed to support your body naturally by reducing the pressure points that cause problems for nearly every person who does not sleep on an adjustable bed. An adjustable bed sleep system combine layers of memory foam, which automatically conforms to your body’s shape and weight, to relieve the normal pressure point contacts that occur with a traditional bed and mattress.
More Sleep Benefits
In addition to the medically-proven benefits of sleeping on memory foam, an adjustable bed lets you sleep in the position that’s most comfortable for you. Studies have show that the best sleeping position is with your head slightly elevated and your knees slightly bent. An adjustable bed lets you do just that.
Sleeping in this natural position has been shown to reduce pressure on your body by as much as 85%. Eliminating this pressure allows you to sleep more soundly because your body does not have to toss and turn all night as you subconsciously seek a more comfortable sleeping position.
Other benefits from sleeping on an adjustable bed include:
- 1. Elimination or reduction of lower back pain caused by sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress.
2. Increased blood circulation due to the elimination of pressure points interference with normal blood flow.
3. Reduction of the effects of excess body fluid buildup (Edema).
4. Less restricted breathing due to the head, throat, and lungs being supported in a more natural position. This can result in better sleep for people who suffer from asthma or sleep apnea.
Tips for choosing the right adjustable bed
