Sometimes referred to as electric, mobility or medical beds, adjustable beds are increasingly being used within the home. The reason being is that they can aid people who have disabilities or pains that would otherwise make a standard bed far too uncomfortable to sleep in any sort of comfort. Here is a guide to adjustable bed prices.
Benefits of adjustable beds
An adjustable bed can be altered by either the user or a carer to adjust the bed into such a position that the person who is to sleep in it, is as comfortable as possible. This moulds the bed into the structure of the person's body and can help to relieve pain (such as back pain) considerably. They can also help the person when getting in and out of the bed. With a memory mattress coupled with the bed, considerable relief can be found.
It has been shown that there are many health benefits from using an adjustable bed. They have been found to help sooth out shoulder, neck pain and tension and are also able to relax other sore or painful parts of the body. There is an argument that they can help to alleviate the symptoms of swollen legs and even help to reduce the chances of getting acid indigestion or heartburn during the night.
Unlike similar hospital beds, adjustable beds available for the home come in a range of sizes and are far more pleasing to the eye than their hospital counterparts. Most of these come in standard sizes but some manufacturers are more than prepared to create a bed to fit the customer's needs perfectly. Standard sizes are:
Single: 75cm x 200cm
Standard Double: 135cm x 200cm
Queen: 150cm x 200cm
King size adjustable bed: 180cm x 200cm
Super King size bed: 215cm x 200cm
