According to the National Sleep Foundation, many people are unable to fall asleep due to conditions caused by improper positioning, like back problems. Yet even those who don’t have these issues and problems may end up with lack of sleep, and those who lie in bed for more than 15 to 20 minutes without sleeping can face even more difficulties getting a good night’s rest.
However, there is relief ahead, according to the National Sleep Foundation, for those who want to use an adjustable bed, which can make sleeping more comfortable. What do adjustable beds do? These beds can raise or lower your head and legs to keep you from curling into an uncomfortable position as you slumber. They are often equipped with other optional features, like heat and massage, which may provide temporary relief from conditions like low back pain, edema or swelling of the legs or poor local blood circulation in the legs, and more. For some people, sleeping in an upright position may reduce or ease light and occasional snoring.
Which type of adjustable bed may be right for you? Take a look at these three popular types of adjustable beds to think about which one might help you get your 40 winks:
Queen and King Size Adjustable Beds: Queen and king size beds are ideal for those who sleep next to a partner but need some help getting comfortable. For the most part, queen size beds will usually only adjust to one setting at a time for both people, but there may be additional options available.
Dual king size beds, however, are equipped to handle two different settings at
once, which helps each partner find their own comfort level on either side of the bed.
Twin Adjustable Beds: For those who may need separate sleeping accommodations or those who are on their own, twin size beds may be the answer. A twin adjustable bed has the same features that larger beds do, but it’s built for one. This may be a good option for couples who may have radically different sleeping needs and need their own separate spaces.
Memory Foam Beds: In addition to the different size beds, there are also adjustable memory foam beds that allow for even more comfort. Memory foam is designed to provide firm support and conform to your body’s shape. As with the other types of adjustable beds, these may also feature optional massage and heating features if desired for additional comfort.
