Take Your Sleep to the Next Level: The Benefits of an Adjustable Base

— by Tempur-Pedic on Dec 22, 2023

As we all know, achieving your best night’s sleep begins with the perfect Tempur-Pedic® mattress. However, your sleep experience is never complete without a proper support system. Many sleepers desire a simple, traditional base for their bed set. In those instances, a flat foundation is a great option. For those who want to take their sleep experience to the next level, an adjustable base is the perfect pairing for your mattress. An adjustable base is an elevated, multi-positional bed base that can adjust into various positions. These bases also offer additional features, such as soothing massage, lumbar support, snore response, sleep coaching, and more – allowing for a more personalized experience.

If you want to become more familiar with adjustable bases and their capabilities, we’re here to help you learn more!

Enhances Relaxation

An adjustable base is a perfect way to unwind in style after a long day. A power base allows you to personalize your sleep environment to your specific needs, helping you to wake up feeling rested and refreshed. Most adjustable bases include a massage feature that can reduce tension in sore muscles, improve circulation, and optimize your relaxation session. Second, adjustable bases provide the opportunity to recline in different configurations, allowing for optimal support and comfy positions for reading or enjoying in-bed movie marathons. All of these features help promote a more relaxed, restful sleep experience.

Helps Reduce Snoring

Apart from their comfort, adjustable bases can aid those who suffer from snoring or sleep apnea. Snoring sometimes occurs when air cannot move freely through your nose or throat. The lack of airflow produces a vibration that results in snoring and is a major disrupter of quality sleep. An adjustable base can help reduce snoring by elevating the head and torso, which helps to open up the airway so you can take fuller breaths.* The TEMPUR-Ergo® Smart Base and TEMPUR-Ergo® ProSmart® Base feature Snore Response™ – a feature that detects and responds to snoring automatically^^ by raising your head approximately 12 degrees.

Soothes Aches & Pains

Finding a comfortable position when dealing with back aches and pains can be difficult. An adjustable base might be a good investment if you often encounter back pain. Sleeping at an incline reduces pressure points on your lower back, resulting in more relief than lying flat. In addition to standard head and foot incline options, all of our adjustable base models offer a Zero Gravity setting, which elevates your head and feet to closely simulate weightlessness and help alleviate the pressure on your lower back while you sleep. If you’re seeking additional support, the TEMPUR-Ergo® ProSmart® Base offers an adjustable lumbar feature with a range of up to 6 inches – perfect for back or stomach sleepers.

Whether you’re searching for options to aid with snoring or hoping to step up your movie night, adjustable bases offer many opportunities. Need help deciding which base is the best fit for you? Visit your local retailer or chat with one of our Sleep Experts now.
