Picture yourself after a long and exhausting day. You’re finally ready to climb into bed and drift off to a restful sleep. As you sink into the comfort of your bed, you give a simple voice command, and the mattress gently inclines, elevating your head and legs into the perfect position. As the world slips away and your worries dissolve, you are well on your way to a great night’s sleep. An adjustable bed is your key to unlocking a new level of restorative rest to recharge for the next day. Let’s jump into the benefits of an adjustable bed and how it can transform your sleep.
What is an Adjustable Base?
An adjustable base is a mattress foundation that allows you to customize the positioning of the bed to your desired preference. Unlike traditional flat beds, an adjustable base uses a motor that enables you to raise or lower the head and foot of the bed to varying degrees. The adjustable functionality is controlled through a wireless remote, smartphone app, or voice command, allowing you to find your preferred position easily. Whether you want to adjust to an incline to alleviate snoring, elevate your legs for improved circulation, or read or watch TV in bed, an adjustable base offers the flexibility to personalize the position of the bed for your comfort.
Despite your perception, adjustable bed bases are not limited to hospitals or healthcare settings but can be brought into your home to improve your sleep. The Dawn House bed system blends form with function, complementing your bedroom aesthetics with a beautiful design that you will be proud to have in your home. Adjustable beds offer customizable positions, lumbar support, and soothing massage options, which can profoundly affect your sleep and overall health. Simple adjustments like proper spinal support or elevating your legs can work wonders in alleviating common sleep issues. An adjustable bed is a beneficial tool for improving your health and sleep quality.
Eight Benefits of an Adjustable Base
One of the primary benefits of an adjustable base is the ability to customize your sleep position for a quality night’s sleep.
- Easier Breathing. By adjusting the position of your adjustable bed, you can find the ideal angle to help ease discomfort, reduce snoring, and alleviate symptoms of sleep apnea. Elevating the upper body can open your airway, promoting better airflow and reducing the interruptions in breathing that are common with sleep apnea.
- Relief of Acid Reflux. An adjustable bed can provide much-needed relief for those who suffer from interrupted sleep due to acid reflux or heartburn. Elevating the upper body prevents stomach acid from flowing back into the esophagus. Stop tossing and turning all night when your symptoms are under control.
- Alleviation of Pain and Pressure Points. Say goodbye to sleepless nights plagued by chronic pain or nagging pressure points. Customize the position of the bed to relieve pressure on specific areas of the body, such as your achy back, hips, or tender joints. An adjustable bed can reduce pain and discomfort, promoting better sleep.
- Improved Circulation and Reduced Swelling. Raising your legs on an adjustable bed can improve circulation throughout your body, reduce leg swelling, and minimize discomfort in the lower extremities. If you suffer from conditions like edema or varicose veins, an adjustable bed can help promote healthy blood flow and reduce the risk of fluid buildup.
- Increased Relaxation and Stress Relief. The massage features of an adjustable bed can enhance relaxation and reduce stress levels. By incorporating gentle vibrations and targeted massage, an adjustable bed can help relax tense muscles and alleviate stress for better sleep quality.
- Versatility and Convenience. An adjustable bed is highly versatile, accommodating various activities beyond sleep. If you prefer reading, working on a laptop, or watching TV in bed, an adjustable base allows you to find the best position for comfort and support. The convenience of adjusting your bed with remote control, voice command, or smartphone app adds to the overall ease of using an adjustable bed.
- Enhanced Caregiver Assistance and Bed Safety. An adjustable bed that raises higher and lowers, like a Dawn House bed system, offers practical benefits for caregivers and individuals requiring assistance. With the ability to raise the bed to a higher position, it becomes easier for caregivers to provide support, assist with transfers, and attend to the needs of the person in bed. This feature also promotes safety when getting in and out of bed and reduces strain on a caregiver’s back.
- Alleviates Partner Disruptions. Couples often have different sleep schedules. One may need to get in or out of bed while the other still sleeps. With motion isolation, your partner will not be disturbed. Also, each partner can find their desired level of comfort and support by adjusting the position on their side of the bed. You can avoid compromise and ensure that both partners get uninterrupted sleep.
Best Sleep Positions for Adjustable Bases
Experience a new level of comfort and support with an adjustable base that caters to your preferred sleep positions—no matter how you sleep.
- For back sleepers, an adjustable bed allows a precise elevation of the upper body, ensuring proper alignment of the hips and shoulders. Bid farewell to lower back pain and hip pressure. By raising the head and upper body, back sleepers can promote spinal alignment, reduce pressure on the lower back, and alleviate discomfort. The customizable angles provided by an adjustable bed allow back sleepers to find their ideal position for a rejuvenating night’s sleep.
- Stomach sleepers can also benefit from an adjustable bed by changing the angle to keep the spine level. With the ability to elevate the upper body slightly, an adjustable bed supports the proper alignment of the hips and shoulders, minimizing strain on the lower back. Wake up refreshed, knowing you’ve found the perfect support for your favorite sleeping position.
- Targeted elevation of the upper body and legs is a relief for side sleepers. By raising the upper body, an adjustable bed helps reduce pressure points on the shoulders and hips, providing relief and promoting better spinal alignment. Side sleepers can find their perfect desired angle for a dreamy sleep experience. They can even sleep on their side in the Zero-G® position to pain points in the lower back, hips and shoulders.
- Are you a combination sleeper, constantly shifting between different positions? A combination sleeper can benefit from the flexibility of an adjustable bed, adjusting the bed’s position with a simple voice command. The versatility of an adjustable bed allows combination sleepers to find support in whatever sleeping position feels natural without limitations.
