What are adjustable beds and why is everyone talking about them?

Lie Down and Anything In Between

There seems to be a lot of confusion about adjustable beds and what they can do for you. Here’s the lowdown.
Adjustable beds are a specially designed mattress on top of a motorized base. This base allows the user to elevate the head and foot sections of the bed. Generally, the head up position is for reflux and snoring. The foot area raises for better blood flow and circulation. When both the head and the foot sections are raised, it’s known as the Zero Gravity Position. This allows for no pressure on the lower lumbar spinal region.
Are adjustable beds the same as hospital beds?
Definitely not! Hospital beds are used for raising and lowering the patient’s body out of the bed; and they have permanent retaining rails. In hospital beds, you can’t sleep with a partner, as they come only in twin size. On the other hand, adjustable beds come in ALL sizes, including a range of basic to deluxe models. They are designed to fit YOUR lifestyle. For example, some of today’s modern adjustment beds come with massage units, programmed sleeping positions, iPhone compatibility, whisper quiet motors and heater. They are engineered to withstand thousands of adjustments and come in a variety of firmness levels. Another great feature is that you can even use your own current furnishings.
When choosing the correct adjustable bed, it’s important to purchase American Made Adjustable Beds. Low price import brands can break down easily. Leggett and Platt use a highly respected manufacturer and well known with 30 years in the industry. Visit www.leggett.com.
What to Look For:
- A Wall Hugger – As your head goes up, the whole unit slides back to keep you close to your nightstand instead of propelling you forward and away from your nightstand.
- Memory set sleeping positions.
- A smooth whisper quiet motor.
