Buying The Adjustable Bed

Oct 26, 2007
Adjustable beds continue to grow in popularity and prices now rival those of standard beds. The growth of the retail adjustable bed industry has also sparked a burgeoning second-hand market for adjustable bed bases and mattresses.

In recent years, the adjustable bed has transitioned from the healthcare industry to the home and millions of users are reaping the benefits. Prices for high quality adjustable beds rival those of their traditional counterparts and offer many more benefits.

There are a variety of reasons to purchase an adjustable bed. The ability to independently raise the legs into a 30-45 degree angle, also known as the semi-fowler position, can often reduce stress in the lower back and improve circulation in the extremities. Many people just appreciate the ability to raise the mattress into a reclining position for watching T.V. or reading.


Adjustable beds are available in the same sizes as traditional beds with the exception of the king sizes. Rather than a single king size mattress, adjustable beds utilize two twin mattresses side by side to allow independent control for each of the users.


There are many features available to choose from. Some, such as battery backup and wired hand control, should be standard. Added features such as wireless controls and heat and massage can typically added for an additional charge.

Consider the Sleep Surface

Once you have decided on the proper mattress and base, consider adding a topper made of Visco memory foam for additional comfort and support. Foam toppers made with Visco memory foam have the ability to conform to the curves of the body and allow pressure to be evenly distributed across your side and back rather than on the shoulders, hips, and knees.

Mattress Types

While out looking for a new adjustable bed you will need to also decide on a mattress type that suits you. Or maybe you are just looking for a new mattress and wanting a change. There are several different mattress types out on the market and each one will fill a different person's tastes. GoldenRest offers two excellent mattress types. These are the GoldenRest premium mattresses and a memory foam mattresses.

The GoldenRest memory foam mattress is an all foam mattress that has a top layer of visco-elastic memory foam that is 2 inches thick. This adjustable bed mattress will distribute your body weight evenly, and will also contour to the shape of your body. This will greatly reduce pressure points and allow for an easier, restful sleep. This full memory foam mattress has 3 layers associated with it featuring 2 inches of visco memory foam on the top, 3 inches of pre-crushed foam and 3 inches of high resilience foam. This mattress uses no springs of any kind. The bottom layers of this mattress give it overall support and cushioning, while the top layer of visco-elastic memory foam works to reduce pressure on your head, neck and back. With this mattress you can expect a sleep that really recharges you.

Buying Used

As a rule, you should never purchase a used mattress of any kind. You may be inheriting some one else's creepy crawlies. Also, most people do not rotate their mattresses regularly so they tend to conform to the shape of the body. In addition, warranties for adjustable beds are never transferable. The technology and materials have improved drastically over the last several years and chances are, a used bed will be inferior to a current model. Do not risk inheriting someone else's problem to save a few dollars.
