So if you’re considering upgrading your sleep space to include and adjustable base, here’s what you need to know:
What is an adjustable bed frame?
The concept of an adjustable bed has been around since Ancient Rome, but they looked more like today’s adjustable poolside chairs than what we think of as a modern bed. While the first adjustable base beds were much more primitive, the first electric adjustable bed was invented in the early 1900s by surgeon Willis Gatch, who was working at the Indiana University School of Medicine.
Over the the last century, the adjustable bed frame has evolved to be must more sophisticated. Today, the best adjustable beds are common accessories in many homes and help to improve the sleep of millions of people. Available for twin to a king size adjustable bed, an adjustable bed is a solid metal structure that acts as a movable foundation for your mattress.
All About That Base (of a Bed)
From a traditional box springs or a bunkie board for a bunk or low-profile bed, to a DIY base, there are many types of bases for beds to help hold your mattress in its proper place and elevate it off the ground.
Contrary to popular belief, gone are the days where adjustable beds are only reserved for medical uses. You have likely seen movable beds in hospitals or nursing homes, but modern adjustable bases have sleek, user-friendly designs that are changing the way people sleep.
Adjustable bases have the power to move your mattress into a variety of positions from reclining to inclining, which helps you get situated in the most comfortable sleep position for your body. Because of its adaptability, adjustable bases can be suitable for sleepers with chronic pain, sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and the average sleeper just looking for more comfort.
The right base can offer a calming sensation and even mimic the feeling of being cradled to sleep.
Benefits of an Adjustable Bed
How do you know if your sleep could benefit from an adjustable base?
Studies show ergonomic benefits of sleeping in a reclined position, such as increased blood circulation and decreased stress and pressure on the back. By keeping your head and legs elevated while snoozing, an adjustable base bed can take your sleep game to new heights.
With the click of your adjustable base remote, you can easily transition from catching up on your favorite shows to powering down for shuteye.
