How can an adjustable bed help you sleep better?
When you think of adjustable beds, you probably think of hospitals, seniors and those with limited mobility, appreciating their benefit for those with physical limitations. While this is true, adjustable beds can help so many more of us – even if you’re simply looking for deeper sleep and to wake up more refreshed. How so? Let us share…
How can adjustable beds help… Seniors
Of course, for our elderly loved ones, who aren’t as mobile as they used to be, adjustable beds are an asset – a 2023 study found that 88% of those over 65 sleep better with an adjustable bed, and 70% find it helps them get in and out of bed easier. With chronic conditions such as back pain, joint pain, arthritis and circulation issues, it’s not surprising – see below.
How can adjustable beds help… those with back pain
A 2015 study found 95% of orthopedic surgeons agree that a mattress can impact back pain – so it’s highly likely that your current mattress – unless specifcally recommended for your needs – could be amplifying your aches and pains.
An adjustable bed can help you here with it’s ‘Zero Gravity’ position – originally identified by NASA, this is where there is relief from all gravitational pressure. As a result, you’re likely to experience less pain, less tossing and turning, and a more restful, comfortable night’s sleep. Come morning, your adjustable bed is a saviour too – no longer do you need to call for help, you can prop yourself up with complete independence, without the need to ask or wait for assistance.
How can adjustable beds help… those with joint pain
What if back pain isn’t your problem – but joint pain is? An adjustable bed can help you too – wherever your pain, the capacity to elevate this area of your body can reduce pressure points, and again, help you sleep more comfortably.
How can adjustable beds help… those who snore
Snorers, frustrated partners of snorers – rejoice! A 2020 study found 67% of snorers completely stopped snoring when sleeping at a 22 degree angle. Yes – stopped! As elevating the neck can open up the airways, this can enhance airflow and reduce snoring – no tennis ball required.
And, come morning, look forward to feeling fresh rather than fatigued, with your body able to breathe and sleep properly through the night. Lastly, note this isn’t just about the snorers… partners of snorers, this means deep quality sleep for you too!
How can adjustable beds help… those with circulation issues
Cold extremities, leg swelling, edema – circulation issues present themselves in a number of ways, and can be uncomfortable at best, and unmanageable at worst. An adjustable bed can help you too – by elevating your hands and feet, this encourages a stronger blood flow from your heart, improving circulation in the process.

Ok so.. You don’t have back pain, joint pain, circulation issues or snore – can an adjustable bed still help you sleep better? Chances are – yes. Ultimately, the Zero Gravity position is suggested to be the most comfortable and most natural position for sleep.
