Three Things to Consider When Buying an Adjustable Bed

An adjustable bed can provide comfort and welcome relief from aches and pains. But how do you go about choosing the right adjustable bed for your home?

If you’re struggling to find a comfortable position at night and your sleep is suffering as a consequence, it might be worth considering buying an adjustable bed from Rise and Recline Ltd. An adjustable bed allows you to raise your head or feet and find the perfect position for you, at the touch of a button.

But before you do order your adjustable bed, there are a few things you should consider.

Do you need a single or dual adjustable bed?

Even if only one of you wants or needs the adjustable bed, but you may not be comfortable with sleeping in separate beds. A dual adjustable bed allows you both to share the same bed but adjust each side separately so that you can both find the ideal position for you. Similarly, if you live alone or only one of you wants an adjustable bed, you can buy a single. All adjustable beds from Rise and Recline Ltd are available as a dual or single, with a wide variety of dimensions available.

Is your adjustable bed for comfort or mobility or both?

An adjustable, recliner bed provides a greater level of comfort to help you sleep at night or just lay in bed and read; but they also provide a great deal of support for people with reduced mobility. The profiling feature allows the user to raise themselves to an upright position at the touch of a button, making it easier to get out of bed whilst also supporting mobility. Similarly, when getting into bed, the user can get into a seated position and use the profiling feature to slowly lower themselves to a comfortable laying position. To support in this, certain adjustable beds are available with a number of additional features to support mobility, including attachable grab rails to help with getting in and out of bed. In addition, certain beds are height adjustable, meaning the bed can be set to a height at which it is easier to get in and out of bed.

The mattress

Rise and Recline Ltd’s range of adjustable beds come with a choice of either pocket sprung, Reflex foam or memory foam mattresses, depending on your preference. A memory foam mattress contours to the shape of your body, allowing support across your whole body. A pocket sprung mattress has microsprings contained within individual pockets for those users that prefer the traditional type of mattress.

All of our adjustable profiling beds are handmade to order and built around your exact specifications and are all hand built right here in the UK. A number of additional features are also available, including headboards, massage functions and other mobility support functions if required.

Benefits of Adjustable Beds

How will an Adjustable Bed Benefit You?

When sleeping, we unconsciously put our body through stress caused by less than ideal sleeping positions. For many of us, particularly those suffering from injury or lack of mobility, we wake up feeling stiff or sore. The natural curvature of the body, when not properly supported, will find it difficult to adjust to the flat surface many conventional beds provide.

Investing in an adjustable bed is not a decision to be taken lightly, but one that is necessary for many people throughout the UK. We have been providing adjustable beds for over two decades, and as such have a vast depth of knowledge to draw from. If you are on the brink of making this decision, please consider the points listed below.

Pressure Points

We have pressure points all over our bodies, and if unknowingly pressed can cause serious damage to an individual. In addition to this on the less serious end of the spectrum, these points can become tender or sore when pressure is applied. When sleeping, we often unknowingly shift too much weight onto certain pressure points, therefore causing our sleep to be stressful or even painful. An adjustable bed minimises these points with specially supported mattresses, and can be adjusted to the individual user. If you experience aches and pains, or have a medical condition that requires extra support whilst sleeping, an adjustable bed is highly recommended.

Back Pain

A flat bed does not provide the proper support for the spinal cord, resulting in excess back pain and restless sleep. By inclining an adjustable bed to around 45 degrees, it provides relief for the lower back. Even better still, raising the lower section of the bed, therefore raising the legs and bending the knees provides an additional level of pressure release to the spine.

Blood Circulation

If you are prone to circulation problems, perhaps suffering from a pre existing medical condition, these beds can be very beneficial. It’s been proven that raising the knees above the body level increases the blood circulation around the body. This can be easily achieved by adjusting the the lower part of the bed upwards.


Elevating the upper body can ease the symptoms of Asthma. Standard beds restrict the body’s airflow and can make it difficult for air to travel. Raising the top section of the adaptable bed improves airflow throughout the body, therefore making it easier to breathe.

Other Health Benefits

These bad sleeping habits can not only cause stress, but can cause various health issues like joint pain, headaches and neck pain. To counter these, adjustable beds are highly recommended. They are designed to adjust to whatever position you sleep in. They provide excellent therapeutic effects on the body and corrects the irregular sleeping positions you previously had – so you can sleep like a baby at night.

Lifestyle Benefits

Health benefits aside, these beds are nowadays associated with luxury. And it’s no surprise as they offer much more than a standard bed.

-Read, eat, and watch television in style. Stacking pillows behind your back is a short-term fix when you want to read or watch television in bed, as they constantly have to be readjusted for comfort. An adjustable bed allows you to sit upright and offers more back support and comfort than pillows.

-Your sleeping partner will approve; they can reduce or eliminate snoring. Slightly raising the head of the bed can reduce snoring by supporting your spine and respiratory system.

-Some of our beds include an infrared massage unit to help relieve back pains, or simply just to loosen up. The massage units were specially designed for the relief of pain caused by prolonged sitting in the office, extended standing at work or through long car journeys. The vibrations felt over the entire mattress are exceptionally good for the circulation of the body, as well as relieving muscle cramps. The massage unit is controlled through an infrared remote control.

Memory Foam Mattress or Pocket sprung? Which is Right for Your Adjustable Bed?

We all know how important it is to get a good night’s sleep – and we all know how it feels the morning after a restless night – but sometimes that’s easier said than done. An adjustable bed can help people with a number of orthopaedic ailments to get a good night’s sleep by encouraging blood flow and relieving pressure from afflicted areas of the body, but without the right mattress it could all be for nothing.

There are a range of different mattresses available for your adjustable bed, each with their own unique benefits. By choosing the right mattress for your adjustable bed you’ll stand a much better chance of alleviating the conditions that might be keeping you awake at night and getting a better night’s sleep as a result.


Pocket Sprung

Unlike the traditional sprung mattresses a pocket sprung mattress has multiple springs each housed in their own individual pocket. These pockets will then coil and recoil independently of one another, thereby offering full support by adjusting to the contours of the body.

Although a pocket sprung mattress doesn’t wrap the body contours in the same way as a memory foam mattress it does offer the added benefit that it’s breathable.


Memory Foam

A memory foam mattress offers a similar benefit to the pocket sprung but where the pocket sprung mattress relies on the individual movements of the pockets, a memory foam mattress will completely mould itself to the contours of your body. This makes it useful in assisting to relieve pressure from joints and can support your adjustable bed in helping alleviate many symptoms of orthopaedic or spinal conditions. Pressure Seating

A memory foam mattress with a 2-way stretch cover will also stay warm throughout the night, which makes it great for the winter months

A Coolmax cover can be used, at no extra cost, for those that find the mattress too warm. It has been designed to remove heat away from the body during sleep.

In all there are many benefits to both types of mattress and ultimately the choice will come down to your own personal preference. Where possible you should try out your mattress before placing your order, and don’t be afraid to ask to spend ten minutes or so on the mattress as that will be the best way to get a feel for how that mattress will work for you.

Is an Adjustable Bed Right for Me?


An adjustable bed can be a huge help to those who struggle to sleep. As well as the comfort benefits they can also offer a welcome relief to the symptoms of certain orthopaedic conditions, and aside from anything else an adjustable bed will offer an extra dimension of comfort and luxury to your bedroom. Here are just a few of the reasons to consider an adjustable bed for your home.


Adjustable Beds Offer Greater Comfort

Adjustable beds are often associated with infirmity or decreased mobility but they are becoming more and more popular with more able bodied users. The reason is simply this – they are incredibly comfortable! If you’re somebody who struggles to get comfortable at night or find it difficult to get into a position in which you can easily get to sleep an adjustable bed could be a great help as it allows you to raise your head or your legs to a position that’s right for you.
Many adjustable beds are also available with a dual option that allows couples to sleep together but still maintain independent movement of their side of the bed.


Adjustable Beds Offer Added Luxury

An adjustable bed can also offer an added element of luxury to your bedroom. Added features like massage can really help you to relax, which is what your bed is meant for after all!


Adjustable Beds Offer Greater Convenience

If you like to read a book or magazine before you go to sleep then you’ll be more than familiar with the inconvenience of propping up a small mound of pillows only to have them slip onto the floor less than two pages into your book, leaving the headboard digging into your shoulder blades. With an adjustable bed that’s no longer a problem as you can easily raise your head to a comfortable position for reading.


Adjustable Beds Can Offer Symptom Relief

The ability to reposition yourself can be a huge help with easing the symptoms of a number of medical and orthopaedic conditions. For example:

  • Back Pain
  • Poor Circulation
  • Breathing Difficulties
  • Swelling
  • Acid Reflux


Important – If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above you MUST consult your GP in order to receive the appropriate treatment for your condition.


Adjustable Beds Offer Increased Mobility

If you struggle to get in and out of bed then an adjustable bed can be a real help in regaining independence. By comfortably raising you to a sitting position at the touch of a  button an adjustable bed will then allow you to simply slide out. Likewise, with the adjustable bed in the upright position, getting in is as easy as sitting on the bed, sliding your legs in and lowering the head to a comfortable sleeping position.


An Adjustable Bed Can Help With Snoring

If you’re a snorer – and if you are somebody will certainly have told you – then an adjustable bed can help. Snoring is caused by the relaxation of the airways and by raising your head just a little you can keep the airways open as you sleep, making you less likely to snore.
The benefits of an adjustable bed are many and varied. If you’re interested then you should talk to your local Rise & Recline Ltd. stockist to find out more about the right adjustable bed for you.
