Should I Buy an Adjustable Bed?

If you’re reading this, then it’s likely that you’re suffering discomfort while you’re in bed and not getting the quality of sleep you should be as a result. Since we spend a third of our lives in our bed, isn’t it important to make sure that it suits us? Having the right bed is especially important if some form of injury or illness makes getting in and out of bed a chore.

An adjustable bed could help to provide a solution to your sleeping woes. At Comfomatic, we have a range of adjustable beds which could also help with providing relief for some specific health requirements. Let’s have a look at what adjustable beds are used for, and how you could benefit from investing in one.

What Are Adjustable Beds?

In short, adjustable beds are beds which use an electrical system to move, bend and change shape to offer the user a choice of positions. There are many different types of adjustable beds, but they tend to fall into two categories: adjustable lifestyle beds and adjustable profiling beds.

Adjustable Lifestyle Beds

Lifestyle beds are electric beds which change in shape to suit your habits while in your bedroom. These beds focus purely on comfort and are normally suited to those who watch television while in bed. Electric systems will raise the back so that the user can ‘sit up’ in bed, making activities like reading more comfortable.

Adjustable Profiling Beds

On the other hand, adjustable profiling beds are focused on assisting with any health issues you may suffer from. These beds are designed to be as comfortable as possible for people with specific back, posture and hip problems.

Many profiling beds are both manual and electric. An electric handset can be used to move the shape of the mattress and the bed in to a variety of positions. If you find that you’re significantly more comfortable in a reclined position, then it’s likely that an adjustable profiling bed could help you.

The Benefits of Adjustable Beds

With the right adjustable bed, you’ll be able to sleep much more comfortably. You’ll also be able to get into and out of bed easier, and may find that the different positions ease any pain too.

The Health Benefits

Those suffering from back issues will normally find that there’s much more flexibility with an adjustable bed. This might not be the cure to your health issues, but you may well sleep much better and your quality of life could improve. Those who have had hip replacements and spinal compression issues may also find a new sleeping position that works for them.

It’s important to note that you may also want to consider investing in an adjustable bed if you have surgery planned in the near future. Adjustable beds are not medical or hospital beds, but they could certainly keep you more comfortable at home than a standard bed.

Additional Bed Features

Not many people realise that it is possible to have a massage unit built into an adjustable bed. These units provide not only a therapeutic massage action, but provide soothing heat. Whilst massage does not provide a cure for ailments, it can certainly provide comfort by stimulating the flow of blood around the body and easing pressure.

You may also look for some of the common features of normal beds to be incorporated in to adjustable beds. Storage is a big issue in many British homes, and for that reason we offer the Windsor adjustable bed. This is our model that has an added option of drawers in the base of the bed, combining handy storage with all the benefits of adjustability.
