Adjustable beds, also known as Semi-Fowler beds, can be adjusted in position to suit the requirements of the user. Those who have medical conditions that require them to sleep in certain positions generally use adjustable beds. They may be also used by those who are temporarily or permanently bed-ridden to make them sleep more comfortably. Sometimes, even those without medical needs can use adjustable beds just to have a comfortable sleep.

Adjustable beds can be altered into a comfortable position as per the sleeper’s requirements. They are very comfortable for reading or for watching TV in bed. They are also ideal for people who have bad sleeping problems due to stress, body strain or other discomforts. As the adjustable beds can be molded according to the person’s body structure, they provide utmost comfort and relaxation. Adjustable beds are also very strong and can support weights of more than 600 pounds.

Adjustable beds are made in two styles: standard or heavy-duty. Adjustable beds are comprised of two main components: the base and the mattress. There are several features to be considered while buying an adjustable bed: the size of the mattress (twin, queen, king or full) and the type of mattress (foam, latex, coil spring or air). Ordinary mattresses cannot be used on adjustable beds. The mattresses for adjustable beds are also specially designed to suit the human body. This helps to relieve strain on certain parts of the body and proper spinal alignment. They are also provided with adjustable rails on either side.

Adjustable beds come in various guises -the pocket spring mattress or the modern foam mattresses. Adjustable beds can be electronically controlled through a controller. The head, neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, hips, thighs, legs and feet can be comfortably positioned on the bed by adjusting the different parts of the bed. This can be done by the simple touch of a button.

There are several health benefits from adjustable beds. Adjustable beds ease swelling of the legs or edema and ease back pain. They relieve soreness of the body and sooth next and shoulder tension. They also offset acid reflux and nighttime heartburn. They provide relief for certain parts of the body such as the neck, the spine and the knees. Adjustable beds are especially useful for people who have degenerative spondylolisthesis, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, asthma, phlebitis, varicose veins, back pain or neck pain. They are also ideal for people who have just undergone surgery. Adjustable beds also make it easier to get in and out of bed; relieve the heart muscle to make breathing easier; soothe stomach muscles and aid in proper digestion; and are also ideal for passive back stretching, etc. Some adjustable beds also have built-in massaging motors in the automatic as well as manual modes.

There are many kinds of adjustable beds in the market, which can be chosen as per the personal requirements of the user. There is no single type of adjustable bed that is suitable for everyone. Professional medical advice can also be sought before buying an adjustable bed. The right kind of bed is all the more important for people who are bed-ridden or to those who have to remain in bed for long hours. Adjustable beds are also available for children with disabilities.
