Can’t ever seem to get comfortable at night? Perhaps you need an electric bed. These adjustable bed mattresses allow a sleeper to put their bed at an incline, so that the top part of the body is supported as it would be on a couch or chair, while still remaining in their far more comfortable bed.
Although to some, this may sound like a strange way to get a better night’s sleep, electric beds can provide certain key benefits that may just do the trick. Here are just a few of them.
As a person sleeps at night, they unconsciously keep changing positions to avoid the low back pain of sleeping in uncomfortable ways. On regular, flat mattresses, there are only so many different sleeping positions a person can try, but on electric beds, the number of different positions available to a person are increased.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, electric beds may be able to take some of the pressure off of certain areas of the body that may make sleeping uncomfortable. In other words, sleeping in typical positions can put a lot of pressure on the back, for example, which may make it uncomfortable to sleep. By allowing a person to sit up at night, electric beds can relieve this pressure, and provide a more comfortable way to sleep.
Getting to Sleep.
Some people think that if they can just lie still in their beds, they’ll eventually nod off. The trouble is that lying in bed for more than 15 or 20 minutes at a time without sleeping can actually make it even more difficult to get to sleep at night. In other words, if a person doesn’t get to sleep quickly at night, they might as well get back up and do something. By possibly allowing a person
to get into a more comfortable position, and by perhaps relieving pressure, electric beds can allow a person to get to sleep more quickly, thus giving them more time for shut eye.
If you’ve been having trouble sleeping at night, you may want to take a second look at your mattress, which may be causing the problem. Electric beds can be a great solution for anyone who’s having trouble sleeping, especially those who find their sofas or couches more comfortable to rest on than their own beds.
