Benefits of sleeping in an adjustable bed?

Adjustable beds are quickly becoming a popular lifestyle choice.  Whether it be due to boding health issues or just because you want the amazing and awesome features that an adjustable bed offers.  They are more affordable than ever and are becoming tech savvy at the same time keeping up with our daily needs. An adjustable bed offers you the freedom to simply adjust your bed  (with a wireless remote control) into a variety of different positions to find a sleeping position that suits your individual needs to enhance your sleep - sounds inviting right? 


We all love our recliners in our lounge room,  sleeping on an adjustable bed is similar to your experience in your reclining chair.  Long after you have purchased your new bed you will not only see how your quality of sleep improves, but there is a huge range of benefits and features that go way beyond and back.


Your body isn't flat is it?  So why are our standard beds flat?  Our bodies have standard pressure points such as shoulders, backs, hips and legs,  a flatbed will stop you potentially gaining a great night's sleep because these pressure points are not supported, hence why we toss and turn.  When it comes to an adjustable bed with a memory foam mattress, your body is allowed to mould into the mattress, whilst you have the added benefit of adjusting the bed and fine tuning your sleep position reducing the pressure from your joints and allowing for better blood flow throughout your body.  Poor, unaligned sleep potions can actually put more pressure on your heart, which is not a good thing. No one ever said they enjoyed not having a good nights sleep did they? Getting a great night’s sleep is vital to your health and well being. If you don’t sleep well your body is not rejuvenating itself and come morning you feel tired and sluggish.


Sleeping in an adjustable bed not only allows you to sleep on either side of your body but it also allows you to sleep on your back and even your tummy.  There are many benefits to sleeping in an adjustable bed but my favourite one is that they offer a ‘zero gravity’ position which is where your head is slightly elevated and your feet are raised higher than your heart which then gives the feeling of pressure-less and weightless sleep,  relieving stress on your body by evenly distributing weight.  I am pretty OK in the health department although some would disagree as I’m rather clumsy and accident prone so I guess when I broke my foot last year after far too many wines and maybe a couple of fireball shots, I would have definitely benefited from having an adjustable bed as it would have significantly aided in the healing of my poor little broken foot!

Back to business… 

People who have back pain or who would like to increase their circulation often find the  ‘zero gravity’ position extremely relaxing and often pain free - hallelujah! Snoring and sleep apnea are very common amongst us these days and it’s proven that an elevated head on an adjustable bed frame can help reduce the pressure on your throat muscles by elevating your head even just a few inches which in turn can stop or ease the severity of snoring  - theres the one and only reason right there as to why you should by an adjustable bed if you or your partner snore! Nothing worse than not being able to sleep and just lying there listening to the freight train whizzing along!  Other health benefits are:

  • helping to relieve back and sciatica pain
  • lessen acid reflux and heartburn
  • nighttime heartburn
  • reducing swelling in legs
  • increasing flexibility and mobility
  • relieving arthritis, fibromyalgia and muscle pain
  • supporting people with breathing problems such as asthma,and many more.

If you don’t have any health concerns there are many features of owning your own adjustable bed.  Many adjustable beds these days come with heaps of awesome savvy tech features such as USB ports (imagine not having to get off the bed to charge your tablet or phone!),  wireless remotes and optional bluetooth control using your smartphone, along with under bed lighting, adjustable legs, memory functions. Additional benefits of adjustable beds are that you can also sit comfortably in bed to watch TV  (like on your recliner in your lounge) and work on your laptop from your bed (wouldn't we all love that!). My favourite feature by far is the Whole Body Vibration Massage which boasts different speeds and a timer so you can fall asleep while being massaged and not have to worry about physically turning it off - heaven!

Now that you know all the benefits and features of why you should sleep in an adjustable bed, it’s time to go shopping and treat yourself to one.  Happy Shopping!
