In this blog we have 8 major health benefits of using adjustable beds.

Improves blood circulation and helps with heart issues

Adjustable beds allow you to elevate your legs or head, which allows more blood flow to your heart. In this position your heart muscles pump harder to allow more blood to circulate in your body. This encourages your veins to contract more effectively so you feel less discomfort during your waking hours.

Helps with swelling

Fluid retention causes swelling in the body. This often happens to those that work manual jobs and are on their feet all day. When your legs are suffering from edema, doctors advise an adjustable bed to sleep with their legs elevated. The proper ergonomic support means that your body can repair properly, which can reduce injury and health hazards. Don’t wait until you have serious swelling to consider an adjustable bed. Think ahead and invest in the best adjustable beds in Australia before serious health concerns arise.

Helps alleviate back pain

Back pain is usually cause by spinal pressure or poor spine support. When pressure builds on your sciatic nerve, this causes back pain. Sitting for long periods of time is a significant contributing factor of developing sciatica. You might also find that spinal pain increases naturally from aging. If you already have sciatica, poor sleep ergonomics is likely to make your pain worse. Take pressure off your spine and alleviate back pain with electric adjustable beds. At Beds for Backs, using our methodology of ergonomics we have crafted a range of beds that are designed to offer specific support for your back concern. Our adjustable beds in Australia are made to support you for your whole life.

Helps improve sleep apnea symptoms

Sleep apnoea happens when your throat closes while you sleep, blocking your airway. This causes you to stop breathing for short times while you sleep. Elevating you position while sleeping can help improve sleep apnoea by allowing air to pass through your airways and keep your blood flowing. Around one in four men over the age of 30 years have some varying degree of sleep apnoea.

Offers multiple comfort levels

If you’re tossing and turning to find the right sleeping position, that cuts into your precious sleeping time. Sometimes a good night’s sleep comes down to personal comfort. Adjustable beds can offer multiple positions so your body can relax, and you can fall asleep. Being comfortable helps you stay asleep longer so your body can repair all its necessary functions.

Adjustable beds can be moved into a leisure position great for reading in bed or you can adjust the bed with your feet up, perfect for watching TV. Beds for Backs offers you the opportunity to best design your sleep environment so you can focus on maximising your comfort. Our outstanding bedding engineers are dedicated to advancing scientific research in adjustable beds in Melbourne.

Helps improve digestion

For those that eat close to bedtime, lying flat disturbs digestion. Doctors recommend that your head should be elevated to encourage gravity in keeping your stomach acids from refluxing. When you sleep on your back, pressure from your stomach drives acid you’re your oesophagus causing heartburn and indigestion.

Helps improve relationships

There are some people who are more comfortable sleeping on their own. This arrangement can cause tension for some couples, but electric adjustable beds allow you to personalise each side of the bed. Getting an adjustable base might be the happy compromise you need without sacrificing your personal comforts.

When your partner is tossing and turning in the bed, it can interrupt your own sleeping schedule. It becomes difficult to get a decent hour of sleep when you’re constantly being jolted in your bed. Adjustable beds can be calibrated and repositioned to fit your personal comfort level – separately.

If you and your partner have different sleeping habits, you will also benefit from separate adjustable side. If your partner decides to stay up reading, their side of the bed can be propped up. You can still enjoy your own space when there is another person sharing the bed with you.

Helps with discomfort associated with pregnancy

It’s a familiar feeling, being unable to sleep because of pregnancy. Finding the most comfortable position becomes a mission. Even with pregnancy pillows, not every person can find the right position. What’s worse is that large pregnancy pillows take up room in your bed! Alleviate aches and pains with adjustable beds and sitting positions. At Beds for Backs, we believe that the right bed should best serve your whole life.
