5 benefits of adjustable beds for seniors with mobility issues

5 benefits of adjustable beds for seniors with mobility issues
April 14, 2023

Find out more about the benefits of an adjustable bed for seniors with mobility issues here.

Adjustable beds have a motorised frame that allows individuals to adjust the angle of the bed’s head and foot sections. People can therefore create a customisable sleeping experience to suit their individual needs and preferences.


Why are adjustable beds good for the elderly?

If you’re toying with the idea of investing in an adjustable bed, here are 5 reasons an adjustable bed would be perfect for you.

1. Ease the pressure on your joints

The head and foot end of the bed can be adjusted to properly support different parts of your body. This will help relieve the pressure on your joints when lying in bed. This is particularly beneficial for those living with arthritis or other joint issues.

2. A better night’s sleep

By relieving the pressure on your joint you will be able to have a more comfortable night’s sleep. If you suffer from joint pain it can be difficult to sleep through the night as you may find yourself waking up frequently in discomfort. Adjusting your bed to your needs will provide optimal support and comfort, reducing pain and ensuring a better night’s sleep.

3. Better mobility and more independence

If you struggle with mobility issues, it can be difficult to get in and out of bed. Raising the back of an adjustable bed can help you sit up, so you’re able to get out of bed much easier and with minimal discomfort. This also allows seniors to maintain a level of independence.

4. Individual sleeping positions

We offer the option of having a double adjustable bed or an adjustable king-size bed but with two separate mattresses. This ensures that you and your partner can create a completely customised sleeping position to suit your individual needs.

5. Improved circulation

Elevating the legs and feet can improve circulation and reduce swelling. Adjusting the foot end of the bed to raise your legs is particularly beneficial to those who struggle with poor circulation.
