The days of unsightly, lackluster hospital-style lifting bases are long gone. Customized adjustable mattress foundations are quickly gaining popularity and are far from overrated. The modern version of the adjustable bed, also called a “powered foundation,” is designed for pain relief, convenience, and luxury. This style of foundation offers many assets conducive to comfort and will enhance your quality of sleep. You will find numerous benefits from the variety of base features, whether it’s day or night.
An adjustable foundation is a heavy-duty platform built to perform with your mattress. Luckily, with contemporary designs, almost all mattresses are compatible with an adjustable base. Just look for the “adjustable base friendly” logo on your favorite mattress brand like Simmons Beautyrest or Sealy Posturepedic. The adjustable base utilizes electric motors to engage mechanisms that will recline your mattress into an upright position to add comfort.
Many luxury adjustable beds come equipped with vibration motors for massaging and offer ultimate muscle relaxation. Added Lumbar support to help relieve even the most stubborn back pain is available on some models. You will find the unique lumbar feature on the Rize Contempo III luxury adjustable base on display to try at most Mattress World Northwest stores, or available to view on our online shop. Another cool feature is under-bed lighting that serves as a night light if you need to get out of bed and don’t want to disturb your partner by turning the lights on.
Within all of the awesome adjustable features, you will want to check out the Zero-G option found on many adjustable bases, like the Bed Tech 3000 adjustable base. Zero gravity positioning can relieve tension, reduce swelling in your legs and feet, and lessen pressure on the heart. Your head and feet will lift just enough to feel like you’re floating like an astronaut. At Mattress World Northwest “it’s not too late to sleep like a baby,” but you could just as easily sleep like an astronaut in the Zero-G position of your adjustable bed!
Adjustable bases overall present an assortment of features, medically and recreationally beneficial. In fact, by the time you get into the habit of using your adjustable base to watch TV or relieve pain, you won’t know what to do without it the next time you stay in a hotel with a ho-hum flat foundation. One thing is for sure, that you will miss your adjustable base!
A flat mattress for sleeping is not necessarily the best for the comfort of the curves of your spine. You are more at risk of pressure points while lying flat versus being elevated because of the curvature of the hips, shoulders, and overall body shape. People with underlying medical conditions are more sensitive and even the slightest amount of pressure can cause immense pain and lack of sleep. Having an adjustable base is a medically beneficial way to cope or help relieve pain or discomfort.
Roughly 30 million people worldwide suffer from mild to severe back pain in which a powered foundation can be beneficial for sufficient relief.
Even slightly lifting the head and foot will customize and enhance the support of your favorite mattress to align with the natural curvature in your spine. This extra support will help with spine health and total body comfort by distributing body weight evenly which reduces pressure and can even help with chronic pain.
Many have found that having an adjustable base will allow you, if necessary, to have more control over your sleeping position. This will come in handy if you have trouble sleeping because you or your partner snore or have difficulty breathing. Many with conditions like sleep apnea will actively benefit from articulating the base. Sleeping at an incline will open the airway to allow for better breathing. With an adjustable base, you may also be able to sleep more comfortably on your back using a C.P.A.P. machine. A powered base is essential for those with obstructive sleep apnea, asthma, and other medical conditions to allow for easier breathing and increased oxygen intake.
A king-size adjustable mattress system offering dual adjustability like the Number Bed by Instant Comfort is great set-up for couples. Queen-size dual systems are also available, but not as common. Both Posh + Lavish and The Number Bed offer them. A split king or flex head king or queen is perfect for two sleepers with different preferences. This allows couples to select custom sleeping positions and decrease snoring, pain or discomfort. You can lift or lower the base when you please while not affecting the other person. Your partner may choose to have only the head up to sleep comfortably. And the choice is yours, to keep the feet up slightly as well as the head if that is your preference.
On the other hand, if your partner is keeping you awake from snoring, some nights you will want to affect your partner by pressing the convenient “anti-snore” button. This feature on the Rize Contempo III advanced adjustable base. With one touch of the remote, the “pillow portion” of the base will elevate slightly to allow the airway to open up. This feature will be convenient and help to reduce or even diminish snoring altogether.
Unfortunately one out of five adults has some form of arthritis that can disrupt healthy sleep patterns.
The discomfort associated with this condition can be painful, debilitating, and hinder day-to-day activity. An adjustable base will allow you to customize your position for ultimate comfort and will minimize pain in the hips and lower back. A lifting base with the massage feature will increase muscle relaxation from head to toe and decrease inflammation that triggers pain or discomfort.
Using an advanced mattress foundation like an adjustable base can make it easier to cope with arthritis symptoms. The ergonomic design of an adjustable base will contour beneath the knees while also elevating the feet, which will significantly reduce lower back pain and alleviate pressure on the knee joints. Ultimately the adjustable base will allow much more restful and healthy sleep from increased circulation and pressure relief for anyone suffering from arthritis pain, swelling, or even fibromyalgia.
Approximately 20% of the population today has been diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, not to mention the countless number of people with less severe symptoms from acid reflux or heartburn. With an adjustable foundation and the ability to position yourself at an incline, you can finally take more control over your G.E.R.D. or acid reflux condition. With symptoms known to flare up at night, by lounging or sleeping elevated, the acids from your stomach will not reflux or backflow into your airway. This will keep your heartburn symptoms at bay before or during sleep.
A mattress foundation that tilts to lift the head and foot is an essential tool to speed up the healing process from surgery, injury, soreness, or severe pain. An adjustable base can also be helpful to alleviate physical stress to the body from a highly active lifestyle. Shout out to all of the fitness fanatics out there. Hey, you need an adjustable base!
Lifting the head and foot of the mattress will give you ergonomic support and will increase circulation significantly. After boosting your body’s blood flow, you will find tension and pain relief will follow. This is a result of the improved organ function, cell regeneration, and distribution of essential nutrients that help revive tired joints, rejuvenate sore muscles and promote total body healing.
Besides the medical and health benefits of owning an adjustable base, many other perks come along with it. A valuable addition to the bedroom, an adjustable base is a cozy way to relax, watch TV, read a book, or even work on the laptop more comfortably instead of sitting on a couch or in an office chair which long-term can have negative effects on your spine.
An added bonus of an adjustable base is its durability. Adjustable beds can hold more weight than a box spring and metal frame or a platform bed. They can also significantly reduce motion transfer on the mattress which can help you sleep more soundly if you are a light sleeper.
Using the adjustable base to assist you when changing your sheets is a smart and convenient way to save you time. Remaking the bed often puts a strain on your back, or causes a struggle to reach the corners of your mattress to secure them. Imagine with a touch of a button lifting all four corners of your mattress to a level that is easy for you to access. With the corners higher up, you can easily tuck the sheets for a perfect fit every time. If you don’t call this convenience then we don’t know what is!
The health benefits, comfort, relief, and satisfaction that an adjustable base will bring to your life will be hard to beat. Look no further than a Bed Tech or Rize adjustable bed base to be the most accommodating piece of furniture that your bedroom has to offer.
