An Adjustable Bed Helps Everyone Sleep at Night

If you think adjustable beds are for only hospitals, think again. Chris Schollenberger, director of PureSleep at Art Van Furniture, says power base beds, also known as adjustable beds, offer lifestyle benefits. And they’re more versatile than you think.

“With a power base bed, you sleep better, live better and feel better,” says Chris. “And the health benefits are amazing.”

Power base beds can raise the bed up to 70 degrees at the head and 40 degrees at the foot. We sat down with Chris to learn about their great features, and here’s what he had to say:

What are some of the health benefits?

Adjustable beds help alleviate a lot of common health issues. Those who suffer from acid reflux can adjust the bed just 10 degrees to let gravity keep acid down at night. People with asthma or airway issues can adjust the head of the bed five to 10 degrees to help aid with breathing. If you or someone you love snores, power base beds can help. Some beds have an anti-snore button that will automatically adjust the bed to the best angle for breathing.

Those with chronic back pain can elevate the head and foot of the bed. Or if you have circulation issues, adjust the bed to keep your feet up. Some of the beds even have a massage feature, which promotes good circulation.

What about lifestyle benefits?

If you like to read, elevate your bed upright to 70% and enjoy a book in your quiet bedroom. You can also watch TV in bed sitting up. And if you bring work home, get away from the hustle and bustle of your home, and sit in your bed with your laptop.

Are adjustable beds expensive?

No. They’re very affordable. In fact; the prices are dropping as power bases become more popular and mainstream. The base model starts at $429, and virtually every mattress Art Van Furniture carries at its PureSleep locations is power-based compatible.

Will my bedroom look like a sick ward?

No. In past, these beds used to look like hospital beds. Now they look like furniture. Most bases include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities built in. Some models include a nightlight under the bed, which makes it easy to get up at night. And you can plug in and charge your phone from your bed.

The great thing about power base beds is that it’s there when you need it. When it’s flat, you can’t tell the difference between the power base bed and a regular foundation. But it’s convenient to have the option to use it whenever you want.

Innerspring

Innerspring mattresses are the most widely purchased type of bedding, according to the Better Sleep Council. They use the support of tempered steel coils in a variety of configurations. A variety of upholstery types and layers provide cushioning between your body and the springs, resulting in a wide range of comfort choices.

 

Sealy manufacturers some great innerspring mattresses. Their twice-tempered PostureTech coils retain 98% of their height and performance, resulting in a more durable mattress with longer lasting comfort. It’s a quality mattress at a budget-friendly price.

Specialty

Specialty mattresses are made of foam, which cradles your body at its pressure points while you sleep, no matter what your sleep position may be. They can be made of a solid core or of several layers of different types of foam laminated together. Advanced technology has created visco-elastic, or memory, foam mattresses, which offer a high level of comfort, support and performance.

 

Tempur-Pedic mattresses are a great example of foam mattresses with advanced technology. Its TEMPUR material responds to your body’s unique shape, weight, and temperature, automatically adapting to support your body. Fewer pressure points, means less tossing and turning during the night, resulting in a calmer, more restful night.
