This is written by a guest blogger on behalf of foldupmattress.com We have all seen the late-night infomercials that give nothing but the highest praise for adjustable beds. They give you the best night’s sleep you’ve ever gotten. The beds adjust to your personal favorite sleep positions especially for people who suffer from health issues. Finding a bed that adjusts to your body and keeps your head, knees, and feet elevated relieves uncomfortable health issues and gives you peaceful sleep again. However, as with everything else on the market, adjustable beds do come with their own pros and cons. You need to consider each one before you go on the market and buy one or yourself. Adjustable Beds Help Respiratory Issues Respiratory issues such as asthma, allergies, and chronic pneumonia make it difficult to sleep at night and sufferers tend to need to keep their heads elevated in order to keep their airways open. People who suffer from acid reflux also need to keep their heads elevated so as to allow gravity to encourage drainage. Adjustable beds keep your head elevated without the need of uncomfortable pillows and tossing all night. By keeping your head elevated, adjustable beds also help reduce snoring- a big plus for people that have to share a bed with a snorer. Adjustable beds help with chronic pain Pain from arthritis or chronic joint pain can make it hard if not impossible to sleep. Pain keeps people awake trying to find enough relief to get some sleep in a comfortable position. A bed that allows you to elevate joints such as knees and ankles, which are susceptible to chronic pain is beneficial to anyone who suffers from it as they can find relief and come upon a restful night’s sleep. Adjustable beds help blood circulation Elevated beds help the blood circulate. People who suffer from high blood pressure, heart disease and other circulatory issues find relief by keeping their chest elevated. People with mobility issues that have a hard time getting in and out of beds also find that adjustable beds make it easier to move in and out of bed without struggle or pain. With as many benefits as you can get out of adjustable beds, remember that cons come with it. One bad thing of adjustable beds are… Adjustable beds are expensive They are going to cost you a pretty penny. A regular bed will typically cost about $1,000 but costs roughly $2,500 in adjustable form, They could cost even more based on the size you get, not to mention the price it costs to maintain them. Regular beds do not require maintenance. Once you buy them you can sleep in them and forget about it. Adjustable beds, however, require regular maintenance. They have several moving parts and gears that make them adjust and those parts eventually have to be replaced or repaired. The best adjustable beds come with warranties that cover the price of the repairs. However, the cheaper beds that don’t come with a warranty require you pay for the parts out of pocket and it can get expensive. Because of thi,s it is highly recommended to purchase adjustable bases that companies that will provide services on your bed when and if you need them. Adjustable beds are incredibly loud The more high-end adjustable beds usually come with whisper technology and are quieter, but still loud. Just like adjustable seats in a vehicle make noise when they move, so the bed makes noise as the gears and parts work together to adjust the bed to your comfort. Consider this before buying it if you are your significant other are light sleepers, adjusting the bed may keep them up. The beds are also incredibly heavy weighing up to 625 pounds so you will need to make sure your floor can support the bed and its parts. They also have a unique size which means they require unique sheets which have to be ordered from online retailers and can be difficult to find. Adjustable beds can be great and can solve a myriad of health issues from asthma to circulatory issues.
