Adjustable bases have become more popular than ever in recent years, and that’s for good reason. Pairing an adjustable base, especially alongside a high quality adjustable mattress like a ReST Smart Bed, can have positive health implications. See below for a brief summary on some of those benefits:
An adjustable base allows you to sleep in a position that closely matches the contours of your body. This can assist in preventing conditions such as sciatica – a potentially painful condition that is caused when the sciatic nerve gets trapped near the base of the spine.
Sleep Apnea and Snoring
Snoring is often caused by the weight of your neck – or gravity – forcing closed your windpipe, making it more difficult for air to easily pass through. Using the incline of an adjustable base makes it possible to alter the direction of gravity so that your windpipe is not obstructed.
Sleep Apnea is an even more serious condition in which one wakes up intermittently throughout the night due to his or her breathing stopping. Being able to elevate your head and neck on an adjustable base won’t help everyone with sleep apnea, but it certainly can help some.
Using an adjustable base to raise your upper body by ~6 inches can help your digestive system. A properly positioned adjustable base can help prevent you from retaining gas during the night.
Ever hurt yourself as a kid (or adult) and were told to elevate the injured area to reduce swelling? The same concept can apply to adjustable bases. Using an adjustable base to elevate your legs throughout the night can reduce swelling that may accumulate during the day – particularly for those whose job requires you to work on your feet. It could also help those who suffer from varicose veins – caused by blood pooling in one’s lower extremities. The elevation promotes increased blood circulation which can prompt faster recovery.
Ease of Getting Out of Bed
It can be a struggle to get out of bed, particularly for those with limited mobility. Adjustable bases make it possible to adjust the height of your legs and torso, making it simpler to get out of bed.
