The adjustable bed mattress became more and more popular these days and adjustable beds are gaining field over regular types of beds.
Still, they aren’t for everyone and most certainly not all of us can afford to have them.
Even if these beds were first used at the beginning of the 20th century, you could find them only in hospitals and only in the late 1960′s they were available for all customers.
Usage. Adjustable bed mattresses are very comfortable and you can have one without having health issues. Just the fact that you can stay comfortable while reading a book, having your breakfast in bed, while browsing the web on your laptop, while watching TV, snacking or even while writing something is enough to prove their greatness. If you suffer from back pain, joint pain, arthritis or any other affection you should consult your therapist and ask him what mattress he recommends. A soft mattress will hug your body while you sleep while a harder one will keep your back straight, keeping it fully aligned.
Testing it. Always test your mattress before buying it because with a mattress for adjustable bed things are a little tricky. With regular beds, you just have to see how comfortable the mattress is and if you are satisfied with it, you can go on and buy it. But is not enough if an adjustable bed mattress is comfortable it also has to be a perfect fit with the adjustable bed you have or want to purchase. If you want to buy online because you’ve found a great deal and it’s obvious that there’s no way how you can test it you can look in stores near you and see if they have the same model so you can make sure you are buying the right stuff for you.
Size. This is not a problem now as they are available in almost all dimensions, including the popular king, queen or full size. If you already have a bed make sure you have the right dimensions for the adjustable bed mattress you intend to buy and if you want to buy the bed and the mattress in the same time make sure they match. Note the numbers of a piece of paper, in your notebook or in your cellphone. We’ve all seen people in the furniture warehouse buying an item without being sure it’s the right size and I’m quite sure that some of them had a bad surprise when they got home.
Options and features. These depends on the budget you have available and your preferences. You can go wild and go for massage, a remote control that can store all your favorite positions and other whimsical stuff or you go with the basics and choose regular mattress, with waterproof/stain resistant cover and you’re done.
Price Tag. This is a bit of a bummer because these things are highly priced and you don’t have big chances of finding one under $500, most of them being over the $1,000 mark. However, you can find decent mattress for less and some of them even have great features like the ones above.
