AIr Beds, Health and Back Pain

This may seem like an odd page to add to my website since it’s all about airbeds. However, if you are someone who suffers from various aches and pains that keep you awake at night, you might want to consider this type of bed. Of course, there are all sorts of beds on the market that have been specifically designed to make you feel more comfortable, but these can be very expensive which is just one reason why I think you should at least think about an air mattress instead.

Home Benefits

I have come across a lot of customers over the years who think that owning an air mattress is limited to people who travel a lot. But, they can just as easily be used in the home. In the case of someone who has mobility problems, a bed like this can do wonders for all those aches and pains.

Because these beds use air, your body is supported more evenly which means you will find it much easier to get into a comfortable position when you sleep. You will also find that when you move about overnight, you’re less likely to be woken up because your back or other part of your body has hit a lump in the mattress.

Among many of the reviews I have put together for you, you will find beds that allow you to choose your own level of inflation and have supporting beams so they feel just like a real bed. Companies have also made inflating and deflating an absolute breeze. In fact, some of the very best air beds come with remote controls so there is little or no effort required from you.

Worried About Loss of Air?

This is something else many manufacturers have thought about, especially for people who have back problems or other issues that can be exacerbated by sleeping on the wrong bed.

Some air mattresses come with innovative pumps that sense when air is being lost. When it does, the pump automatically inflates back to the desired level and it won’t wake you up if it happens during the night.

Height and Stability

This is something to consider carefully. I have many reviews on low profile airbeds but for you, the best option will be raised. These air beds can be as high as a standard bed which means you get in and out of them in exactly the same way.

If you’re worried about the bed tipping or sliding about when you sit on it, don’t be! Firms have thought about all of this for you. Various grips and weights have been added to ensure you don’t end up tipping the bed or moving it when you sit. In fact, it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between a “normal” bed and an air bed. Just take a quick peek at my review on the Serta EZ Bed and you’ll understand what I’m talking about.

All in all, you don’t have to suffer with sleepless nights, and you don’t have to stop taking those beloved camping trips. Best of all, you won’t have to spend an inordinate amount of money to reach the level of comfort you’ve been looking for even if you do have those aches and pains to deal with.
