If you are looking for uber comfort, you've come to the right read. Know everything about adjustable bed frames, and by the end of the article, you will be able to make an informed choice. 

A high-quality adjustable bed enhances your sleep and takes it to another level. 

What is an adjustable bed?

An adjustable bed frame or bed base is mechanically designed to either raise your head or feet or both to get comfortable and rest easily. They come with customizable positions for a blissful night's sleep. 

These beds are also referred to as "lifestyle beds." The user can choose the most comfortable position or even enjoy breakfast in bed on weekends. 

Adjustable beds feature a zero-gravity position that adjusts the body into a neutral sleeping position where the legs are raised and the head tilted. This position supports the body to make it easy to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. 

How do adjustable beds work? 

There are two components of an adjustable bed set, the base, and the mattress. The base controls the movements in which the sleeper sleeps, and the mattress that moves along with the bed frame offers comfort. 

An adjustable base is further divided into two components; the sleeping surface is the part where the mattress will rest on. On the other side, the second part is where the joints lie. The joints allow the base for free movement from the mattress, and this movement ensures various sleeping positions. 

Each joint moves up to a certain reclined position. For instance, you either raise only the head region if you want to watch TV or if you want to avoid acid reflux, heartburn, or sleep apnea. 

Many people turn to adjustable beds to reduce back pain, stiffness, snoring, and other health concerns. You can raise the legs region above the rest of your body if you suffer from swelling or water retention issues. 

How can an adjustable bed be controlled? 

You might wonder who controls an adjustable bed? Some adjustable beds come with remote controls, whereas some controls are attached to the bed frame itself. Newer models come with wireless connections. 

Usually, remote controls will have standard set positions that may or may not work for you or your partner if it is a split adjustable bed. If you don't find the set positions comfortable, you can also manually control the bed and get comfortable in your preferred position.

Choosing the right mattress for your adjustable base 

Typically, you don't have to choose the mattress that comes along with an adjustable base. You can purchase a mattress of your choice; however, you must ensure its compatibility with an adjustable base.

Memory Foam 

Memory Foam mattresses offer excellent body contouring and they even support the weight of the body evenly. When paired with an adjustable base, the foam flexes easily to match the contour of the base without compromising comfort and body support. A memory foam mattress will also return to its original shape even after reclining it, unlike many other types of mattresses. 

We recommend a memory foam mattress that works best with an adjustable base.

Know the benefits

Below are some of the benefits of sleeping on an adjustable bed base. 

Blood circulation: Certain reclined positions allow the easy flow of oxygen and reduce blood pressure. This position is helpful for those who suffer from circulatory issues. 

Alleviate asthma and snoring: Breathing issues like asthma, sleep apnea, and snoring can be reduced if the head is elevated. In this position, the head reduces the weight off the wind-pipe allowing better airflow while sleeping. 

Swelling: If you are on your feet all day, it is recommended to keep the feet slightly elevated to prevent any swelling or aches. Instead of constructing an unstable pillow pile, get that adjustable bed and raise your legs. 

Reduces acid reflux and heartburn: Keeping the head elevated can help reduce acid reflux by keeping the stomach acids in place and not flowing up the esophagus. This eventually helps in better digestion and better sleep. 

Chronic aches and pains: Lying down flat may put unnecessary pressure on your joints resulting in pain that can lead to chronic pain after a while. Reduce the pressure on your back and neck with an adjustable bed, and find that perfect position to fall asleep. 

Last but not least, enjoy your downtime watching your favorite show with your head elevated at the perfect level of your Television set. You can also enjoy reading a book with ease on an adjustable bed.
