Adjustable beds aren’t just for hospitals anymore.
These electric beds, which can allow you to sleep with your torso elevated, are quickly becoming popular among consumers looking to improve the quality of their sleep and feel more refreshed and pain-free each day.
However, a number of misconceptions still surround these beds, and may put some people off from getting one — even if they’d benefit immensely from sleeping in an adjustable bed.
Are you as knowledgeable about the advantages of adjustable bed systems as you think you are? Find out with this list of the three biggest misconceptions surrounding these beds along with the truths behind them:
Myth: Sleeping upright is uncomfortable
The exact opposite is true. When your upper body is elevated as you sleep, you get vital neck and spine support, preventing pain and tension and providing relief from unwanted strain. Additionally, you’re less likely to unconsciously change positions while you sleep if your upper body is elevated.
Myth: Only hospitals have adjustable beds
As time goes on, this is increasingly untrue. In fact, thousands of people just like you are turning to adjustable bed systems as a way to sleep more soundly at night. There are countless potential benefits to sleeping in an adjustable bed; they may be able to stop snoring, prevent heartburn, improve your breathing and much more.
Myth: I don’t need as much sleep if I’m older
Many people put off purchasing an adjustable bed because they don’t think they need as much sleep as they get older. Seniors need just as much — if not more — sleep as younger adults. As we age, hormonal and body clock changes make it harder for us to get to sleep at night. Adjustable bed systems can make it easy to get the recommended eight hours of sleep you need every night.
