Adjustable bed add-ons: More than just a bed

Written by

Traditionally, when you buy a bed you might be thinking about the three components: a mattress, a headboard and a base. But our adjustable beds are so much more than this.

Why settle for a standard bed when you can get more out of an adjustable bed? What's more, you can also choose from our selection of bed add-ons to make your bed provide for your every need.

Why is an adjustable bed better than a standard bed?

Do you find that you struggle to get in and out of bed without assistance? This could be a minor problem or an increasingly difficult one, especially if you live alone. The amazing thing about an adjustable bed is that, at the touch of a button, the bed will raise your back from a lying to a sitting position. This will enable you to easily get in and out of bed without assistance.

Do you wake up with aches and pains while sleeping on a standard bed? If this is something you struggle with, you aren’t alone. People aren’t supposed to sleep completely flat. This is because we have gaps under our knees, the lumbar region of our lower back and our neck. These areas, if not properly supported while we sleep, can end up feeling sore when we wake up. This is why we sometimes wake up with a stiff neck. The way an adjustable bed can help is by putting you in a semi-contoured position that mimics the natural shape of your body and provides the perfect sleeping position. This way, your joints and muscles are completely supported, allowing you to have a good night’s sleep.

Do you experience problems with your circulation or do you have swollen ankles? Sometimes, if you’re experiencing swollen ankles or poor circulation, the GP might recommend that you raise your legs while you sleep. Instead of using extra pillows, which don’t actually support your legs and ankles very well, why not let your bed do the work for you? Using the remote, simply press the button to raise your legs. This position allows your body to pump blood more efficiently, relieving your swollen ankles.

What add-ons can I get to make my adjustable bed provide exactly what I need?

In other words, how can we make your adjustable bed even more fantastic than it already is? The benefits above apply to a standard adjustable bed without add-ons, but you can select a number of our add-on accessories to tailor your bed to your specific needs.
