Leggett & Platt Adjustable Bed Bases



Browse by tag:  

An adjustable bed base for your mattress has now become an essential necessity due to lifestyle or health issues that affect sleep quality.  The biggest selection of adjustable beds Sacramento has on display is at The Healthy Bed Store.

An adjustable bed base looks just like a traditional mattress and can even fit inside your existing bed frame. Gone is the old white "hospital bed" look, replaced by clean lines, fabrics that blend into home decor, quieter motors and technologically advanced features.

Consumers consider purchasing adjustable or "motion" bases for the therapeutic benefits they can provide or lifestyle reasons such as watching TV, reading and even working from bed. Some of the medical reasons for purchasing adjustable bases include:

  • Circulation, swelling and lymphodema
  • Easier breathing, especially with allergies and asthma
  • Reduced snoring
  • Acid Reflux or GERD
  • Post-Surgery Healing
  • Back Pain, especially with chronic back injuries or surgery

Anyone suffering from long bouts of bed rest also found them to be considerably more comfortable for a variety of activities, making sitting up and relaxing bed easier. These types of beds were originally developed to aid health and healing, as therapeutic inclination can be used to aid a variety of health concerns. Poor circulation often causes swelling (edema) in the legs and feet which can be alleviated by elevating your feet above your heart.  The serious heart burn caused by acid reflux, often referred to as GERD, is caused when stomach contents leak into the esophagus. By elevating the chest and head, this can be eliminated and tends to be more comfortable than sleeping on mounds of pillows.

 The “zero gravity” position, in which the head is slightly raised and feet are above the heart, can be helpful for relieving back pain and improving circulation as well. In addition to these specific positions, people can tailor the bed shape to fit their own personal needs and comfort preferences.

When considering an adjustable base bed system, you should determine which features are most important to you, your budget and the size you will need. Adjustable bed bases offer owners the ability to adjust their position with simple controls and can be helpful for a wide range of people.

In addition to health benefits, modern bases now offer several comfort features like massage, alarms, anti-snore controls, under-bed lighting, articulating pillow positioning and bluetooth connectivity that allows you to control the base from your smartphone or tablet. Most people enjoy reading or watching TV while in bed and use a variety of pillows to prop themselves into an upright position, or experience uncomfortable strain on their back and arms. An adjustable bed eliminates this hassle by allowing the user to position themselves upright for reading, watching a movie, or enjoying breakfast in bed. You can also slip into a lounger position with knees slightly elevated.

Couples can also benefit from adjustable beds that come in split models. Many brands offer split king and split queen bases on which each half operates independently. Thus, partners who have different needs and preferences can both be comfortable and sleep side-by-side as well.

Other factors to consider is the base’s warranty. Most reputable manufacturers will offer around 20 years of limited warranty coverage, but the full coverage periods can vary significantly from 0-5 years, and some warranties might exclude critical components like motors all together.

A study by Burke Research on behalf of Leggett and Platt indicated that 90% of adjustable bed owners are happy with their beds.

SleepLikeTheDead.com reports that 84% of people report satisfaction with adjustable bases overall.

The above figures mean that overall, people that buy adjustable beds are happy with their decision. So long as you take care to understand the features of the product you select and check owner reviews, it is likely you will come away satisfied.
