Posted on Thursday Mar 12, 2015

adjustable beds Sleep satisfaction and pattern varies greatly among babies, children, teens and adults. On average, adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep in a night, however, the hours of sleep needed to maintain functionality varies with individuals. Sleep becomes less satisfying and restorative with age either due to aging, health or lifestyle. Additionally, the amount of sleep the average adult gets has been declining over the decades mostly due to the fast pace of modern life due to many responsibilities. In the senior years, senior citizens may have more time to sleep, but again they do not have adequate sleep

With adjustable beds, it has become possible to mitigate the increasing sleep deprivation that occurs with age. Adjustable beds are beds that have several hinges on the lying surface and can be inclined to several positions and also adjusted to several heights. Their most common adjustments include lowering and raising the lower and upper body independently of each other. Adjustable bed history can be traced back in England between 1815 and 1825. They are most commonly used in hospitals but have gained popularity especially for use in home care over the past few decades and are known to improve sleep patterns and quality as well as providing relief from various health conditions

Adjustable beds have made it possible to alter sleeping positions precisely as an individual would wish, to more closely match body contours is known to greatly help with back pains. The incline provided helps improve health by reducing chances of apnea and snoring. Being slightly upright during sleeping also helps digestion as it helps the body to process food during the night. Adjustable beds give better elevation to individuals with sprains or broken limbs thereby helping reduce broken limbs. This is mostly beneficial to individuals who spend most of the day working on their feet to improve the feeling and prevent conditions like varicose veins. In conclusion, adjustable beds have an advantage over traditional mattresses as they promote a healthy posture, proper blood circulation, pressure relief and customized support
