Why Buy an Adjustable Bed?

Mobility beds offer a range of health benefits that can greatly improve your quality of life. By allowing you to adjust the position of your bed, these mechanisms can help alleviate aches and pains in your joints, back, and muscles. This can be especially beneficial for individuals with conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, or chronic pain.

One of the key advantages of adjustable beds is their ability to reduce pressure on specific areas of the body. By reclining in different positions and angles, you can relieve strain on your spine, hips, and shoulders, which can lead to improved comfort and better sleep quality. This can also help prevent issues such as pressure sores and circulation problems.

In addition to physical health benefits, these beds can also have a positive impact on your mental well-being. By providing a more comfortable and supportive sleep environment, you may experience reduced stress and anxiety, as well as improved mood and overall mental health.

Overall, investing in an electric bed can be a worthwhile decision for anyone looking to improve their health and well-being. Whether you have specific health concerns or simply want to enhance your sleep quality, the versatility and customisation options of adjustable beds can help you achieve a more restful and rejuvenating night's sleep.

For back sleepers especially, an adjustable bed allows you to raise your head and feet together or separately for a more comfortable sleeping position. If you suffer from snoring or acid reflux, elevating your head position with an adjustable base can help alleviate symptoms that may keep you awake.

An adjustable bed may be just what you need to relieve your aches and pains. Whether its pain relief or a better night’s sleep, an adjustable bed may be the answer.

Being in the right sleeping positions can significantly improve your circulation, offering relief from ailments like backache and arthritis. By keeping specific areas elevated and supported, issues with swollen legs, ankles, and feet can be mitigated.

Range of Adjustable Beds

One of the essential aspects to consider when purchasing an electric adjustable bed is its size.

The size not only determines the space it will occupy in your room but also the level of comfort and support it will provide to the user. The majority of users purchase a single adjustable bed. Its width of 3ft is comfortable enough for most people, but sometimes the size of the room can determine the size of the bed you buy.

For bedrooms with limited floor space, a small single adjustable bed is a practical solution, as its width of 2ft6 can still sleep an adult comfortably. For those who find a standard 3ft single bed too small, a popular choice is a small double adjustable bed, also known as a ‘three quarter size’.

Taking up less floor space than a double adjustable bed, 4ft small double beds are an ideal sleeping solution for individuals who need additional space. A perfect choice for couples is a king size adjustable bed or a super king adjustable bed.

With individual mattresses, each person can adjust their side to a preferred level of comfort, without disturbing their partner. The main benefit of a king size or super king adjustable bed is the option to have each half of the bed linked together as one, or separated into twin beds. It's crucial to measure your room and consider the bed's purpose before deciding on a size.

An ideal solution for couples who prefer different levels of support and comfort are dual-tension adjustable beds. This means you don't have to compromise on your preferred level of support and comfort. Simply choose a combination of mattresses that suits both you and your partner from our dual-tension king size adjustable beds or dual-tension super king size adjustable beds.

Whether it's for health reasons, comfort preferences, or room aesthetics, there's an electric adjustable bed size to meet everyone’s needs.

Are Adjustable Beds Only for Those with Disabilities and Mobility Issues?

Adjustable electric beds were initially created with the intention of providing comfort and support to the elderly and those with physical limitations.

However, over time, these beds have undergone significant advancements and are now popular among a wider range of individuals seeking to improve their overall health and lifestyle.

One of the key benefits of adjustable beds is their ability to alleviate common issues such as back pain, acid reflux, and sleep apnea.

By allowing users to adjust the angle of their bed, they can find the most comfortable position for sleeping, reading, or watching TV. This customisation can lead to better sleep quality and overall well-being.

Furthermore, adjustable beds are no longer limited to the utilitarian, hospital-like appearance of the past. Modern designs are sleek, stylish, and blend seamlessly with any bedroom decor. 

Some models even come with additional features such as massage functions, USB ports, and under-bed lighting, adding a touch of luxury to the sleeping experience.

Overall, adjustable beds have become a popular choice for those looking to improve their sleep quality, alleviate discomfort, and enhance their overall lifestyle. With their versatility and modern designs, they have truly transformed from a medical necessity to a desirable lifestyle accessory.

Modern adjustable beds come with a variety of mattresses from reflex foam to pocket spring interiors and choice of tensions. Choosing the best mattress firmness your body requires depends not only on your weight, but your height, build and your favoured sleeping position.

Most light and average weight side sleepers prefer a softer support, while heavier individuals who sleep on their backs may want an extra firm feel.

Medium and medium to firm mattress tensions work for all body weights and sleeping positions. 

Can You Use Any Mattress on an Electric Adjustable Base?

When it comes to using a spring mattress with an adjustable bed frame, it is important to note that not all spring mattresses are suitable for this purpose. 

Traditional spring mattresses may not be able to bend and flex with the movements of an adjustable bed frame, which can lead to discomfort and potential damage to the mattress.

Specific spring mattresses that are designed to work with adjustable bed frames are recommended for optimal comfort and support. These mattresses are typically made with more flexible materials that can easily bend and adjust to the various positions of the bed frame.

They are also constructed with durable materials that can withstand the constant movement and bending without losing their shape or support.

Using a spring mattress that is not compatible with an adjustable bed frame can result in the mattress becoming misshapen, uncomfortable, and potentially even damaged. 

It is important to carefully read the manufacturer's recommendations and specifications to ensure that the spring mattress you choose is suitable for use with an adjustable bed frame.

Overall, choosing a spring mattress that is specifically designed for use with an adjustable bed frame can help you achieve a comfortable and supportive sleep experience.

It is worth investing in a suitable mattress that will work seamlessly with your adjustable bed frame to ensure a restful night's sleep.

These mattresses are typically made with individual pocket springs or reflex foam interiors that allows for more flexibility. Using a traditional innerspring mattress that is not designed for use with an adjustable bed frame can lead to damage to the mattress and discomfort for the sleeper.

It is important to check with the mattress manufacturer to ensure that the mattress is compatible with an adjustable bed frame before making a purchase.

Regular spring mattresses lack the necessary flexibility. Non-sprung mattresses, like foam ones, are acceptable, but it's essential to note the length differences between regular and adjustable beds. For optimal support and comfort, always choose a mattress compatible with a motion base.

Are Adjustable Beds Eligible for VAT Relief?
