Spending Too Much Time In Bed – Is It Possible?
If you are a chronic fatigue syndrome sufferer, you probably spend way more time than you want to in bed. Having a good quality adjustable bed makes spending this time way more comfortable.
Adjustable bed frames used to be something only hospital patients had access to. However, nowadays this is not the case as they are readily available for home use too.These adjustable bed frames are not only super comfortable, but have contemporary good looks too.
As well as the comfort they provide, which will make spending extended periods in bed less tedious, they also offer several other benefits for your health. All of the beds mentioned in this ‘best of adjustable beds’ post offer the following health benefits:
Pain from aching muscles is bad enough on its own, but feeling anxious about your pain can cause sleep problems too. Due to having several different sleep positions, adjustable bed frames make it possible to give your body the most comfortable, pain relieving and restful position to ensure you get a good night’s sleep.
Alleviate Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Raising the head of your mattress can elevate the position of your head taking the pressure of your windpipe which allows for a better airflow position while you are lying down. Breathing issues can contribute to sleep apnea and snoring, but sleeping with your head in an elevated position can alleviate these problems.
Leg Swelling Reduction
Some health conditions like leg lymphedema, injuries or standing on your feet all day can cause your legs to swell. Sleeping with your legs elevated can help reduce the swelling and an adjustable bed can easily be used for this.
If your mobility is impaired or for those with chronic fatigue syndrome who find it difficult to get in and out of bed, an adjustable bed can help. By raising one end of the mattress it makes it much easier to find support for standing up or lying down.
7 Important Points To Consider When Choosing An Adjustable Bed
- Sleep Patterns – Almost all adjustable bed bases fold in two places which effectively divides the mattress into 3 sections, the head section, the middle section, and the foot section.
- Can you sleep on your side with an adjustable bed? – You should realize that if you are a side sleeper it will be difficult for you to sleep on an adjustable bed with the foot or head raised. Of course, you can still enjoy an adjustable bed for relaxing during the day to read or watch movies etc., but you will need to move the bed to a flat, or almost flat position for sleep.
- Installation – Your bed should be easy to assemble, with no special skills or tools required.
- Adjustable Leg Height – If you need your bed to be a specific height to work with existing bedroom furniture such as bed frames and bedside tables, adjustable legs are a bonus. You need to check that the allowed leg heights of the model you choose work for you.
- Mattress Type – Can any mattress be used on adjustable beds? Generally standard coil only mattresses are not suitable for use with adjustable beds. You need a memory foam, latex or hybrid type mattress to ensure it ‘folds’ in the correct way and retains its stability when adjusted to your preferred position.
- Bed Type – Do you want a bed base to fit into an existing bed frame or do you want it to be a stand alone bed? If you need it to be stand alone, you might want to consider how it will look in your room and give consideration to the leg style etc.
- Available Warranty – Your adjustable bed frame has moving parts, so it is wise to check on the warranty offered by the manufacturer.
Our suggested options here include a cost effective option, a splurge worthy option and everything in between to make choosing your adjustable bed frame easy. You are sure to find the ideal adjustable bed for your particular needs.
