Signs You Might Need an Adjustable Base?

  • You wake up stiff and sore in the morning. 
  • You have lower back pain.

What is an Adjustable Bed Base?

Adjustable bed bases are powered, multi-position mattress foundations that replace traditional flat foundations and box springs. Adjustable bed foundations were originally used in hospitals to make patients more comfortable, hence their association with mobility and health issues. Modern adjustable bases, though still providing a range of health benefits, also cater to comfort and functionality for modern lifestyles. 

Adjustable bases allow the user to raise the position of their head and legs. Additional features, like massage, programmable positions, additional head and lumber support, and bluetooth capabilities are available on more advanced bases. All mattresses at Big Sandy Superstore are compatible with adjustable bases.

Why Get an Adjustable Base?

  • Better Sleep - Allows for more comfortable sleep positions with reduced tension on joints and muscles..
  • Reduces Snoring - Elevating the upper body helps open the airways and can reduce snoring. 
  • Reduces Heartburn and Acid Reflux - Raising the head allows gravity to do the work and keep stomach acid where it belongs. 
  • Reduces Back Pain - Positions like Zero Gravity relieve tension by lengthening the spine and distributing pressure more evenly across the spine. 
  • Increases Circulation - Elevating the legs allows the body to circulate blood more efficiently. 
  • Comfort - Numerous positions are more comfortable for things like watching TV and reading in bed. 
  • It’s never been more affordable! At Big Sandy all queen size mattress sets $599 and up qualify for a free upgrade to a power adjustable head up base. King size sets receive a $300 credit towards a power upgrade. 

How to Choose an Adjustable Bed Base

When selecting a new adjustable bed base, you may want to consider your budget. For a fully customized sleep experience, you may wish to consider a whole sleep system that has an adjustable base and an adjustable mattress. However, if you are being price conscious, you may wish to just start with one of these components at a time.

Consider what kind of features you would want included. Some adjustable beds come standard with lights, USB ports, or features like remote control. Head-raising capabilities may allow you to raise the position of the bed when it is time to wake up or adjust to improve night-time snoring. This is also great for reading or watching TV to provide comfort and alleviate neck pain. The elevation of your head and feet provides a “zero-gravity” or weightless feeling, to provide ultimate comfort.
