Solace Sleep Adjustable Bed

Discover 4 Game-Changing Sleep Positions on Adjustable Beds

Key Takeaways

  • Zero Gravity Position: Alleviates the entire body by lifting the head and legs to create a 120-degree angle at the hips. Helps evenly distribute weight, easing pressure around hips, shoulders, and spine. Ideal for reducing joint and back pain.
  • Legs Elevated Position: Aids leg swelling, especially for edema sufferers. Also excellent for preventing lower back pain and sciatica.
  • Contoured Position: Similar to the anti-gravity position. Both head and legs are elevated, supporting the natural curvature of the spine.
  • Head Elevated Position: Helps open airways and improves digestion. Reduces symptoms like snoring, congestion, sleep apnea, and COPD.

1. Zero Gravity

Adjustable Bed Zero Gravity Position

The Zero Gravity position is a fan favourite as it alleviates the entire body by lifting the head and legs to create a 120-degree angle at the hips. This deep angle helps evenly distribute your weight, easing pressure that usually culminates around your hips, shoulders, and spine when on a flat bed. For this reason, the zero-gravity position is highly effective for those who suffer with joint or back pain. To take the guesswork out of finding the zero-gravity position – all Solace Sleep beds have a preset button that shifts your bed into the zero-gravity position at the click of one button.

2. Legs Elevated

Sleeping with your legs elevated is a tremendous way to aid leg swelling, especially for edema sufferers (a condition that causes excess fluid retention in the legs). Elevating the legs, however, is also excellent for preventing lower back pain and sciatica (a condition that causes back and leg pain or numbness). Additionally, sleeping with raised legs encourages more blood to flow to your heart, improving overall circulation which has a variety of health benefits.

3. Contour

Contoured Position Adjustable Bed

A contoured position is like the anti-gravity position, where both the head and legs are elevated, however the angle is not as steep, and instead aims to support the natural curvature of the spine. This position is ideal for both back and side sleepers as the curve created in the middle section of the bed can be used to support either the hip (for side sleepers) or the bottom (for back sleepers). This position is perfect for those who suffer from back pain caused by overuse or poor posture and provides much needed relief for a full night’s rest.

4. Head Elevated

Sleeping or relaxing with your head elevated is proven to help open your airways and improve digestion. By elevating the head, you open your airways and nasal passages, reducing symptoms like snoring, congestion, sleep apnea, and COPD. In addition to these conditions, the incline also alleviates heartburn and acid reflux by keeping stomach acids from travelling up the esophagus.

Moreover, elevating the head via an adjustable bed allows for more comfortable lounging without the need for excess pillows. So, if you find yourself working from your bed, reading, eating, watching TV, online shopping amongst other activities, you can now do these with ease and from the press of a button.

The above four positions are guaranteed gamechangers in their own regards and can assist a wide array of needs and symptoms. If you have additional ailments or concerns and need some guidance on the best positions for your individual needs, our friendly staff are only a call or email away.
