5 Health Benefits of Adjustable Beds
A good night’s sleep is important for everyone, and one way to ensure quality sleep is to have a comfortable bed. Additionally, lying in a horizontal position throughout the day causes a number of health-related issues such as bed sores and painful joints. This can impact on the quality of sleep you get.
Here we have compiled the benefits an adjustable bed can provide for you to have a good rest.
1. Find a comfortable resting and sleeping position
If you are experiencing chronic pain, finding a comfortable sleeping or resting position in a regular bed can be a challenge. Propping up cushions may be a temporary solution but this is not ideal.
If you have an adjustable bed, you will be able to find the best position for you to feel comfortable in. Your head and shoulders may be raised if you are to eat your meal or watch the television. When you want to rest, the adjustable bed can be lowered depending on your preference. These beds are very easy to adjust depending on your needs.
2. Boost circulation
As we get older we may not be able to move around as much due to poor circulation. Many elderly people suffer from ulcerated legs and varicose veins, worsened by long periods of bed rest. You may say that the best cure for this is movement and exercise, but then that may not be possible for other disabled people.
The simple solution to boosting the body’s circulation is to raise the legs above the heart. This is an easy task if you have an adjustable bed. With a simple push of a button, the lower half of the bed can be raised when needed. This action allows blood to flow easily from the lower limbs and therefore prevents swelling of the feet and legs. However, remember that this should be done only under a professional’s supervision.
3. Improve mobility
Adjustable beds are good for improving one’s mobility. These beds can be raised to a certain height to help you to your feet. It can also be used for people who need a wheelchair. By setting the bed at the exact level, people will not have any difficulty moving to and from a wheelchair.
4. Joint pain relief
If you suffer from joint pain, it can be very difficult to get comfortable. Even if you try solutions such as using pillows, you may still be in pain. An adjustable bed will make it easier for you to find the best position to help relieve the pain.
5. More independence
Many people don’t like the thought of asking help from others to do mundane tasks such as getting out of bed or adjusting a pillow. Especially for those with mobility issues and older people who need extra care, troubling their PA or family members can also weigh heavily on their mental health. With an adjustable bed, they have the freedom and the confidence to move with little to no assistance from other people, thus regaining their independence to take action on their own even with little tasks.
