Helpful Guides & Tips for Adjustable Bed Mattresses
If you have health issues that demand a certain level of support, or demand a larger than average amount of bed rest, and adjustable mattress may be for you. An adjustable bed offers a range of options, adjustable from a simple control, allowing the user to alter its shape to better suit them. Adjustable mattresses offer an equal amount of adjustability, to ensure complete comfort. If you're still not sure what an adjustable mattress is, why you should invest in one, or which adjustable mattresses are right for you, our FAQ is here to help.
What makes a mattress adjustable?
Adjustable mattresses need to offer a degree of adjustability to the user to ensure the maximum comfort. This allows you to get on and off the mattress easier - if you suffer from mobility issues or other disabilities, it makes getting in and out of bed so much easier thanks to the memory foam offering support to your joints.
The materials adjustable mattresses are made from vary, but generally they will be made of memory foam or pocket springs for maximum comfort and support. Whichever the adjustable mattress contains, it will be designed to offer as much support across the whole body as possible, minimising pressure on joints to improve your sleep.
Pocket sprung mattresses use several hundred individually wrapped springs to offer as much support and even weight distribution as possible. Adjustable memory foam mattresses, however, use special foam designed to adjust and mould to your body shape. The minimal resistance offered by memory foam means they're the perfect adjustable mattress choice for anyone who suffers from back pain.
Are there specific benefits?
Adjustable mattresses offer a range of unique benefits. Their adjustability allows people who suffer with mobility issues to sit up simply by pressing a button. When you push the button, the bed-frame will move accordingly, and the mattress will move with it. An adjustable mattress is specifically designed to contort with the shape of the adjustable bed.
Temperature controlled mattress covers are also available for adjustable mattresses, which can allow you to stay cool and comfortable throughout the night.
How do you choose the right mattress?
Searching for the right adjustable mattress for your bed is easy, and depends entirely on what you need from your adjustable mattress. You'll find a mattress suitable for you, thanks to the wide range of comfort grades available.
Medium and firm comfort grades are generally a wise choice for those who require more support in their spine and joints. If you tend to sleep on your side more often, a medium comfort grade will offer the best of both worlds - the necessary support, with enough cushioning to protect pressure points such as shoulders and hips.
What are the size options available?
Adjustable mattresses are available in a variety of sizes. The options we offer include the small single with a 75cm width, a single with a 90cm width, a small double with a 120cm width, and a double with a 135cm width.
This allows you to choose the perfect adjustable mattress for your bed, your space, your lifestyle, and the way that you sleep.
Is it possible to purchase just an adjustable mattress?
Yes. We offer the full package of both an adjustable bed and mattress, but you can buy an adjustable mattress separately. Bear in mind, however, that you will require an adjustable bed in order to maximise the benefits they offer. We generally recommend that you replace your adjustable mattress once it reaches 8 years old, depending on whether or not you sleep on it every night.
Is an adjustable mattress topper/protector required?
There's no right answer - it's simply up to you, your preferences, and how you feel most comfortable sleeping. One of our adjustable mattresses will offer you a great deal of comfort on its own, so an adjustable mattress topper shouldn't be considered an "essential".
If you do choose to purchase one, however, it will offer you an extra layer of padding for improved comfort - especially if you choose one made from memory foam. A mattress protector can help to extend the life of the mattress, and protect it from any stains, spills, or other incidents that might occur. Mattress protectors are easily replaceable and washable.
