Benefits of an adjustable bed
Electric Beds allow you to raise and lower the head and foot sections of the mattress to the most comfortable position. These features enable you to elevate limbs after surgery, which helps to reduce swelling, a side effect particularly common in leg surgeries. By keeping the affected body part above the heart level of the upper body, and the groin level for the lower body, you are encouraging the fluids causing the swelling to flow downwards. This can be particularly helpful if your limb is encased in a cast and the swelling is causing feelings of restriction or pain.
After surgery you may not be as active and as a result your circulation may suffer. An electric bed can help with this by changing your position in bed with little effort required on your part. Changing your position regularly can help increase blood flow throughout your body and restrict fluid build up.
Being able to sit up unassisted may seem like a minor thing but after surgery, having the support an adjustable electric bed offers can make an enormous difference. It allows you to sit up easily when you want to take a drink or read a book without the need of assistance. It also helps any carer you may require as it prevents any possible injury to them when lifting you into a different position.
If you have undergone surgery on your respiratory system, breathing may be painful or a difficult. An adjustable electric bed allow you to sleep with your head, neck and chest comfortably raised ensuring your airways are kept clear of fluids. It also decreases the effects of gravity on your body, as when you lay horizontally the tissues in your throat become closer together and the tongue falls back, which when combined with swelling from surgery, can make breathing difficult.
