The Benefits of Adjustable Beds

Adjustable beds are the latest, and greatest, advancement in mattress technology.

 

For many people, the idea of an adjustable bed makes them think of a hospital bed — but that is far from the reality. The new adjustable mattresses are incredibly comfortable, ergonomic, easy to use, and they will improve your overall health and well-being.

 

Here is a list of some of the benefits of switching to an adjustable bed:

 

Reduce Pains & Aches

 

If you have back pain, suffer from spinal cord compression issues, or experience circulation concerns, then you will benefit from an adjustable bed.

 

By elevating various parts of your body you will reduce pressure on those areas which cause you pain. By alleviating pressure you will improve circulation, reduce pains and aches, and achieve a more comfortable and sustained sleep.

 

Reduce Digestive Issues

 

If you experience acid reflux, heartburn, or indigestion, then you will benefit from an adjustable bed.

 

If you elevate your upper body by 6-8”, you will find that your stomach is better able to retain acids compared with lying flat. A calmer inside will allow for a better quality of sleep.

 

Reduce Snoring & Asthma

 

If you, or your partner, are kept awake by snoring or difficulty breathing due to asthma, then you will benefit from an adjustable bed.

 

By adjusting the incline of the mattress you will find that your passageways clear and allow for increased air and oxygen flow into your body. Improved breathing will mean that your heart won’t be working so hard and your body will be able to relax and achieve a better quality of sleep.

 

Improve General Comfort

 

If you, or your partner, are tired of constantly shifting and adjusting pillows to get comfortable to read or relax in bed, then you will benefit from an adjustable bed.

 

The user-friendly technology will allow you, at the touch of a button, to get completely comfortable. Features include programmable positions, wireless remotes, headboard brackets, massage systems, USB charging ports, and more!

At Smitty’s, we are proud to carry a wide range of adjustable mattresses including: Serta, Kingsdown, Springwall, and Zedbed. Visit us at Smitty’s and try out our adjustable beds to find the perfect mattress for you!

Supplier Spotlight - Serta Mattress

Serta is the number one mattress manufacturer in the United States and a leading manufacturer worldwide. They pride themselves on being the manufacturer of the World’s Best Mattress — and it is a title that they have worked hard to deserve!

 

The History of Serta

 

Serta’s proud history began in 1931, when an assembly of independent mattress manufacturers joined forces, recognizing that they needed name brand recognition to compete with emerging national companies. The assembly set guidelines for the products they would make and market, and Serta was formed as a company in 1933

 

Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, Serta developed into a nationally recognized brand, backed by a network of local companies dedicated to the highest quality and innovation in mattress technology. Throughout the years, Serta have delivered many “firsts” — such as the world’s first “tuftless” innerspring mattress.

 

Made in Canada

 

Today, Serta operates numerous manufacturing facilities across both the United States and Canada — which means that many of the Serta Mattresses sold at Smitty’s are indeed “made in Canada.”

 

Mattress Selection

 

Every Serta Mattress is made with the aim of superior comfort and support. Their wide range of product offerings fall into two broad categories: innerspring mattresses and memory foam mattresses. To figure out what mattress is best for you, we recommend using the Mattress Selector Tool on their website.

 

If you’re still confusing (or looking for a local retailer), come into Smitty’s and we will help you make the right decision! Check out our store hours and showroom locations.

Why Adjustable Beds Are The Future

With modern advancements and increasingly affordable pricing, adjustable beds have become the obvious choice for people looking to add another level of comfort and flexibility to their home life.

 

This is not your grandma’s bed. This not a hospital bed. This is the bed of the future!

 

In the era of Netflix and on-demand television, adjustable beds are the go-to solution for anyone who enjoys watching TV before going to sleep — and they are great for other activities as well. Do you read before bed? Work on your laptop in the evenings? Help your kids with their homework

 

Your evening ritual: stacking pillows carefully behind your back, trying to get the positioning just right. Put this time-consuming practice behind you by investing in an adjustable bed. Get the comfort that you want, when you want it.

 

Reduced Snoring & Other Benefits of Adjustable Beds

 

Adjustable beds have been shown to help with a number of different conditions. They were first used to hospitals to improve circulation and oxygen flow in patients, by raising the heart above the rest of the body. Although commercial models are not validated by medical testing, these same benefits have been reported by other owners of adjustable beds.

 

Based on past reports & personal experience, we have found that adjustable beds can help with…

  • Easing neck, back and shoulder pain — Using an adjustable bed to reposition your body can relieve pressure on various areas, such as your lower back at the end of the work day. Improved circulation will allow muscles to heal faster as well!
  • Reducing snoring and providing a deeper sleep — Elevating the upper body by 8 inches can open the airways, reducing snoring and providing oxygen to your muscles, so you stop tossing and turning!
  • Recovery from injury — Adjustable beds can help with major and minor injuries, including everything from simple swelling to post-surgery recovery, by elevating affected areas and providing improved blood flow.
  • Offer relief from common conditions — An elevated position has been shown to relieve symptoms of acid reflux or nasal drip from allergies, which makes it great for people who suffer from these conditions.

How Adjustable Beds Work

Adjustable beds combine the ergonomic benefits of a good quality armchair with the added advantage of being able to go from relaxation to sleep, with the click of a button. Modern adjustable beds use simple remote controls or Bluetooth technology to allow you to easily manipulate your bed’s positioning — without having to move yourself.

 

The best adjustable beds today will allow you to raise and lower the head, the foot and the middle sections, fitting any arrangement that suits you. An adjustable bed can be used in the same way that you’d use a reclining chair or a sofa. Or in new, creative ways!

 

Modern adjustable beds blend well into your home’s decor. Different models will come with different features, such as heat or massage — you can browse the Serta website to see the various options!

 

Smitty's Prot Tip

Pro Tip: Adjustable beds do require the use of a specially-made mattress to accommodate the raising and lowering of the base. Typically a memory foam mattress will work better than an innerspring model, as the springs are easily damaged by the bending motion.
