Being productive, feeling fresh, and minimizing body aches all begins with having a good night’s rest. When your body and mind are able to receive the comfort and support they need to sleep soundly, it can drastically improve your quality of life as well. That’s why adjustable beds are becoming increasingly popular. Aside from the fact that you can tailor your bed to provide you with the utmost comfort, it can also enhance safety, support, and help reduce joint pain and bedsores, and improve access for caregivers. Whether needing easier transfer into and out of bed, or you simply want the comfort of a bed custom-fitted to your preferred sleeping position, here’s how adjustable beds can help:
Adjustable beds can help increase safety in the bedroom. Whether you have an elderly loved one who needs to be taken care of, or are recovering from an injury, adjustable beds provide an additional layer of safety since they can be manoeuvred to make it easier when entering or exiting the bed. This lowers the risk of falling or bending and placing unnecessary pressure on areas of the body that regular beds would require for various motions. The adjustable bed smoothly elevates the user into a sitting position to more easily transfer out of bed.
Support and Comfort
The fine-tuning of adjustable beds allows you to alter both the head and feet sections so that each individual can find their ultimate position of comfort. By elevating the legs and altering the back for complete support, it helps to alleviate pain and discomfort, as well as reduce the chance of bedsores from occurring. You can lay the bed flat or slightly contoured while sleeping and raise into a sitting position for reading or watching TV during the day if confined to bed.
Easier for Caregivers
Caregivers have a lot of responsibility when it comes to providing the support and care for a patient. Adjustable beds not only ease the process for patients, but they also make it much easier for caregivers to offer the comfort, care, and support to their patients with ease. It is not always possible for caregivers to lift the patient into a more comfortable position; the adjustable bed makes it easy to provide comfort with a click of a button.
Additional Products for Care and Support
In addition to benefiting from an adjustable bed, you can also take full advantage of other products that are designed and created to make your life all that more comfortable and easier.
For example, the Invacare Tilt Top Overbed Table can be adjusted for height as well as the angle of the surface to provide comfort and convenience while reading or writing.
Having a comfortable surface to sleep on that can provide the necessary support and functions to enhance comfort and reduce pain is what we’re all about. We believe that getting a good quality sleep is vital. And for those who suffer from chronic pain, or an injury, adjustable beds can really make all the difference in getting that quality of sleep that you need in order to heal or start the day off right.
