What to Look for When Shopping for an Adjustable Bed

Purchasing an adjustable bed is a great way to get a good night’s rest.  Adjustable beds allow for decreased swelling and increased health, especially for back sleepers and those with injuries. With improved technology and prices, it’s easier than ever before to get the bed frame and mattress that works for you. Before you go shopping for your next adjustable bed, make sure to consider these factors:

Adjustable Features

Most adjustments to raise or lower the bed can be done by remote control, but the number of adjustable bed features varies by product.  These tend to be the most common features that patients look for in adjustable beds:

  • Massages – Some adjustable beds come with built-in therapeutic massage options. Consistent therapeutic massage helps to reduce inflammation and improve circulation and sleep.
  • Split-Beds – Couples tend to like split-beds, since the position, firmness, and other features can be customized for each side of the bed. Sometimes, couples find the middle part of the bed uncomfortable since there is a small gap, so make sure to test this out if you’re considering this feature.
  • Sleep Tracker – Place sensors under your mattress and receive personalized sleep insights in an easy-to-use app from Tempur-Sealy.

Personal Preferences

At the end of the day, you need a bed that feels comfortable for you.  Your personal preference is the most important factor when deciding to invest in an adjustable bed, so make sure to try your future bed out before buying. Make sure to take note of how you feel, any stiffness or soreness, and your overall sleep after sleeping in a new adjustable bed.
