Are Adjustable Beds Good For Your Health?

The ubiquitous adjustable beds in hospitals are slowly tip-toeing into our modern bedrooms. People say these provide ultimate comfort while sleeping and some therapists believe that adjustable beds have numerous health benefits. However, the list of naysayers is also too long to be ignored as they brush aside all these as nothing but humbug. Now, if all this sounds a bit too confusing or overwhelming then the only way to determine whether adjustable beds are actually for your bedroom or not is to delve deeper into the health benefits associated with using these beds.

Health benefits of Electric Lift Adjustable Beds

Improves Blood and Lymphatic circulation:

Since the entire bed is adjustable so it gives you ample options to set it according to the blood circulation needs of your body, especially your heart.  Thus, you can directly address the problem areas of your body, such as your legs or back. The circulation of blood throughout the body is at the very core of everybody’s health and wellness. Extensive worldwide research has concluded that Whole Body Vibration Therapy will enhance both blood circulation and venous return by providing regular and effective stimulation of these vital functions necessary in sustaining good health. The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system and a vital part of the immune system. The lymphatic system removes metabolic by-products from the body and eliminates infectious organisms. When using Whole Body Vibration Therapy the lymphatic system is ‘turbo charged’, helping the body stay healthy whilst preventing the build-up of free radicals therefore speeding up recovery times.

Cuts down snoring:

If you are a snoring offender then adjustable beds will not only come as reprieve for you but also your sleeping partner as research shows that 81% of partners of regular snorers are sleep deprived*. Sleeping flat on your back obstructs the passage of oxygen to the vital body parts. However, scientific studies conclude* that when you sleep on electric lift adjustable beds with an elevation of 30 degrees or more you will relieve snoring and sleep apnea in all but extreme cases. In fact, positional sleep therapy, whereby you raise the head end of the bed by 30 degrees or more has actually shown to be more effective than using a CPAP*.

Gives relief from backache:

According to scientists over 3 million Australian’s suffer unnecessarily each day from back pain. Since our beds are completely adjustable, you can independently raise the head and foot end of the adjustable bed accordingly to improve the position and support unique to your body. The unique ability to find the best sleep position for each individual person and injury has been shown to assist with alleviating the backache by allowing the muscles to fully relax and disengage, unlike on a flat bed. By increasing blood flow to the area has also shown to assist with recovery. Our electric adjustable beds are mechanically designed to provide whole body vibration therapy, which according to a research report conducted at the Manchester Metropolitan University, was shown to reduce back pain by up to 70% in just three months.

Acid Reflux and Heartburn:

If you elevate your head by six to eight inches while sleeping, you can definitely relieve acid reflux and heartburn symptoms. The fluid from your stomach will never be able to climb up and cause heartburn, which will eventually bring anyone that suffers from either Acid Reflux or Heartburn great relief if they sleep in a suitable adjusted position.
