When most people think of adjustable beds, they think of hospital beds. In the same way that all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares. Hospital beds are adjustable beds, but adjustable beds are definitely not hospital beds. There has been a huge increase in sales of adjustable beds in recent years, especially luxury adjustable beds with special features like dual controls, optional heat, and adjustable memory foam beds.
That’s why the Wall Street Journal reported in September that “The Hospital Bed Gets a Makeover.”
What does that makeover entail? While consumers can still buy affordable adjustable beds stripped of luxury features, many Americans are purchasing electric beds with remote controls, USB ports, massage functions, and dual control settings for couples with different sleeping needs.
Now there are as many styles of adjustable beds as there are traditional beds, from twin adjustable beds to king size adjustable beds with laptop platforms. So why are Americans buying these items in such large numbers? It could have something to do with U.S. culture, with millions of Americans suffering from too little sleep or low quality sleep. Many believe that adjustable beds promote that elusive good night’s sleep they’ve been waiting for.
For instance, the National Sleep Foundation reports that taking pressure off certain areas of the body can make sleeping more comfortable. And just a minor incline at the foot or head of your bed may eliminate the need to toss and turn or tuck in your legs. Adjustable sleeping systems can help with that and a number of other problems besides.
The rise of the adjustable bed in Americans’ sleep habits tracks with other ongoing changes in the culture. American companies are inventing “smarter” versions of everything, from watches and phones to umbrellas and cars. So if you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from lack of sleep, why not invest in adjustable bed options?
After all, we spend nearly a third of our lives in bed. Now, millions of Americans are finally realizing that they should invest in the mattress they deserve.
