What is an adjustable bed? This is a bed that has a multi hinged surface that can be moved to a number of different positions. Many people choose to incline the upper body while independently raising the lower body. Others enjoy tilting the body into a variety of different directions and heights. The market for adjustable beds is growing.

Because we spend about a third of our lives sleeping in beds, it makes sense that people want comfortable choices for where they sleep. Many people feel pain when lying on nonadjustable, old and flat beds. There are many health problems adjustable beds can potentially provide relief from, including low back pain, leg swelling, poor circulation, heart burn, gastric reflux, and more, though of course it depends on the individual and the bed they choose. Some beds also give heat and massage options, though not all.
