A Beginner’s Guide To Purchasing Electric Hospital Beds

ETPLUS-BE07

Electric beds are usually used in hospitals for people who are constantly ill, or disabled. These beds have many evident medical benefits and also suitable to be used at home for those suffering from probable aches, pains and sleeping disorders. It is also perfect for people who prefer to sit comfortably whilst reading or watching TV on the bed.

Benefits

Having an adjustable electric bed to improve health and comfortable living has many benefits. Relief from back pain, sleep apnea, asthma, snoring and improved independence are some of the benefits that could be attained by using an electric adjustable bed.

Back pain

Back pain could be reduced considerably, as when the mattress is adjusted at the head and foot, it gives space for the back, supporting the spine by relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Relieve Sleep Apnea, Asthma and Snoring

Sleep Apnea and asthma are breathing problems that can be reduced by using an adjustable bed frame to raise the head. Sleeping in a curved manner could improve airflow, lowering blockage from the nasal passage to permit a healthy uninterrupted sleep. It will also reduce the possibility of an asthma attack as the oxygen that is reduced when lying flat will be able to move more freely.

Snoring usually occurs when a person lies flat, and this makes the neck put extra weight on the windpipe and closing it, resulting in a noise known as snoring. When the bed’s adjustable frame lifts the head, gravity permits the weight to be taken off the windpipe, resulting in a reduction of the snoring.
