Adjustable Beds for Sleep Apnea and Other Benefits

Posted on Monday Dec 8, 2014

adjustable beds

Adjustable beds have gained popularity due to the rising cases of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition where the airway gets blocked by the tongue. It mainly occurs when one lies flat during sleep causing the tissues to get pulled to the lowest level due to the force of gravity. Eventually, air is blocked from the airway preventing breathing. For this reason, doctors recommend the use of adjustable beds since they adjust according to your sleeping position and therefore it is easier to raise your head while sleeping. Adjustable bed history also dates way back to the realization of the fact that there is a growing number of overweight people who would benefit from the bed.

Benefits of adjustable beds and air Mattresses

Adjustable beds come along with specifically designed adjustable air mattresses. They basically allow the head to remain higher than the feet while adjusting to the body’s needs. Other benefits of the bed include:

  • Both sides of the bed can be adjusted independently and even when two people sleep on it, they both remain comfortable.
  • In terms of space, the beds occupy less space, they are light weight and come in different sizes i.e. from twin to king.
  • These beds also come at affordable prices with most insurance companies offering to cover the cost of these beds especially for sleep apnea patients.
  • Apart from preventing sleep apnea, adjustable beds with adjustable air mattress help to reduce back pains since they adjust according to your body contours. Additionally, they reduce the chances of snoring by allowing flow of air in the windpipe and finally, allow proper digestion as your body is able to process food better when in the upright position.

Adjustable beds use adjustable air mattresses and they have proven efficient for sleep apnea patients, overweight people and those who snore. They are definitely a good purchase for a good night sleep.
