Why Buy an Adjustable Bed? – by Nicole Martins

No Comments 24 November 2009

Spending the night awake or waking up feeling sore certainly takes the joy out of sleeping. And since we spend 1/3 of our lives in bed sleeping or trying to do so, a comfortable mattress and bed is essential.

If you’re like most people, you are probably most familiar sleeping on a flat bed containing bed frame and mattress. You shop carefully for a mattress, making sure to test drive before buying, and make a decision based on how comfortable the mattress feels when you’re lying down on it. There really is no “best mattress” as this is subjective. Best is what works for you. see: http://www.wheelchair-ramps-and-mobility-aids.com/adjustable-bed-mattresses.htm

However, there are limitations to a regular mattress, and this quite simply is because human beings are designed with contours that a flat bed cannot support. For example, our spines are S shaped and our legs have curves. When you lie on your back these gaps or contours on a flat bed are not supported, which keeps your muscles working and tense.

Take lying down to another level and you’re looking at an adjustable bed which adjusts into countless positions, even positions that support your curves while lying on your back. (Craftmatic beds 1001 positions). It is for this reason that many people prefer adjustable beds. And, many people choose adjustable beds for health reasons.

Health Reasons

Take for example, elevating the upper body to help reduce acid reflux and heartburn. (The elevated position allows gravity to keep stomach acid from flowing up into the esophagus.) Another example: elevating the legs to reduce edema or swelling in the lower legs.

Comfort and relaxation are other benefits. Depending upon brand and model you can select options or special features like: massage and heat.

Mattress/bed sizes include: single, double/queen and king, and you can look for “Dual” queen or king beds, which are two separate side-by-side adjustable mattresses, ideal for a couple who recline and sleep in different positions.

If you are looking to buy an adjustable bed take a look at some of the trusted brands; Craftmatic, Sealy, Simmons, Serta, Sleep Comfort and Flex-A-Bed are best known. Some manufacturers, (Sleep Comfort) allow a 90-Day home trial & money-back guarantee as well as a 90 day firmness swap out. However, this is not standard. Make sure to take your time and get to know the differences before buying. This will not only bring you comfort, it will help you to get a good night sleep!

Discover if Electric Adjustable Beds Actually Provide any Health Benefits or Not

Every person needs a good and restful sleep. In the end, we spend one third of our lives in bed. So wouldn’t it be wise to make sure that we get a comfortable sleep during the night?

Of course it would.

But you’d be amazed if you knew how many people are sleeping on uncomfortable beds and still do not do anything about it. They complain about various aches they have in the morning and still sleep on regular, many times old, flat beds and mattresses.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

When there are so many adjustable beds of all shapes and sizes on the market out there, it’s definitely not worth keeping your old bed and continue to worsen your health. Don’t you agree?

Sure, but here comes a question: Can electric adjustable beds actually deliver what they promise?”

We have heard many stories about adjustable beds. Many people say that electric adjustable beds have significantly reduced the back or neck-pain that they had. Some say they do not feel any swollen legs or feet anymore.

Let’s see if electric beds can actually help you.

Health Benefits of Electric Adjustable Beds

When sleeping on flat beds, your body is in tension. Our bodies are not flat, they’re curved. So when your body sleeps on flat bed, it feels discomfort, because it can’t normally adjust to the bed.

So how adjustable beds are different?

First of all, adjustable beds can be adjusted. You can increase the incline angle of electric adjustable bed right under the head. So your neck will be in more appropriate position. Second, if you pick quality mattress, like memory foam mattress, your body won’t even need to adjust to the bed. Memory foam mattress will automatically adjust to your body. So you won’t feel any discomfort and your body will lie in more natural position.

This can significantly reduce back pain, neck pain, shoulder tension, pelvic aches.

Blood Circulation and Asthma Problems

Many people complain about swollen legs and feet. When they get back from hard working day and lie in bed, the tension isn’t gone away. So in the morning they feel various aches and find it hard to get up and walk.

Electric adjustable beds might help people in this situation too.

First of all, if you slightly elevate the part of adjustable bed under legs, your blood circulation will increase. Second, if you choose memory foam mattress, you’ll also increase the circulation, because memory foam mattress reduces pressure points that you get when sleeping on regular (flat) beds.

It can increase circulation, reduce leg and feet swelling, reduce back pain and breathing difficulties for asthma patients.

Also, if you slightly incline the angle of your upper body, you make your breathing much easier. Asthma patients reported that when sleeping with their upper body part elevated, they feel less discomfort and experience easier breathing.

Conclusion

There are actually more health benefits reported that electric adjustable beds are able to provide.

If you can’t get a relaxing night’s sleep, feel discomfort in your feet or legs, have difficulties breathing, feel neck or backaches in the morning, then a quality electric adjustable bed is what you really need. These health benefits that adjustable beds provide are not myths. These are facts that many patients have reported.

If you want a really comfortable sleep, then don’t think any further than good electric adjustable bed. Don’t save your money at the expense of your health. Spend a thousand or few on a quality adjustable bed that will give you a comfortable sleep and much less discomfort than your regular flat bed.

A memory foam mattress is a great way to complete your adjustable bed. We have a section devoted to memory foam mattresses to use with an adjustable bed.

What Is the Difference Between a Mobility Scooter and a Powerchair? – by www.scootamart.com Staff

No Comments 24 November 2009

What Is the Difference Between a Mobility Scooter and a Powerchair?
Mobility scooters and powerchairs are often grouped together to differentiate them from traditional self-propelled, or pushed wheelchairs. There are however some fundamental differences between a mobility scooter and a powerchair.
Mobility scooters have three or 4 wheels and are steered using a bicycle style handlebar (or tiller) which requires 2 hands, and are designed to travel up to 35 miles. They are used by people with limited mobility, or those who tire easily when walking.
Powerchairs usually look more like traditional wheelchairs, and some models even look just like a traditional wheelchair with batteries and a motor attached to each wheel. The powerchair is driven using one hand by a joystick controller on the arm of the powerchair. Powerchair users tend to spend more time in their chairs than scooter users spend on their scooters. Because of this, powerchairs tend to be more adaptable than disabled scooters and some models can have specialist seats and controllers fitted to suit the individual requirements of the user. For example, the powerchair can be controlled by hand, by a chin controller, or even using a sip and puff pipe operated with the mouth. The footrests can be specific to the user’s needs and can include swing away or articulating footrests. Powerchairs are also more likely to be used inside although some powerchairs are equally capable indoors and outdoors. Mobility scooters are more likely to be used outdoors, although some of the smaller ones can be used indoors.
Electric scooters usually have one motor to drive the rear wheels. Powerchairs have two motors to individually drive the rear wheels. This gives the powerchair a great turning circle, and provides a lot of traction and control. Some powerchairs even have an electrically operated hydraulic seat so that the user can reach traditionally unreachable places like cupboards and shelves. Disabled scooters tend to be less customisable than powerchairs, and have fewer optional extras.
Disability scooters tend to be less expensive than powerchairs. Powerchairs have two motors, and better, more supportive seating as users often spend a lot of time in the powerchair. Powerchair users may not be able to support themselves, or be able to walk at all, and so their requirements are different from mobility scooter users.
Traditionally, powerchairs were not as easy to dismantle as mobility scooters, but this is changing and most of the powerchair manufacturers offer powerchairs that will fit into a car boot. Designs are changing so that powerchairs are becoming as easy to dismantle and as rugged as mobility scooters. Some powerchairs have six wheels for added stability, and some are front wheel drive for added manoeuvrability.
Now that you have found out more about the differences between mobility scooters and powerchairs, you can decide which will suit you best.

The Advantages of Electric Wheelchair Scooters – by Kent Pinkerton

No Comments 24 November 2009

Electric wheelchair scooters, or mobility scooters, are specially designed for providing mobility to disabled people. Electric scooters are high performance in terms of speed as well as safety. They are adaptable, affordable, durable and come with reliable warranties. Power mobility scooters are a great economic alternative to electric wheelchairs. They are available as portable/travel, three-wheel and four-wheel, front-end drive and rear-end drive scooters. The cost of motorized scooters ranges between $900 and $3,200.

Electric wheelchair scooters are steered with a tiller, which is something like a bicycle’s handlebar. They have speed control knobs to control speed between 1 and 5 mph. They can be disassembled for easy transportation. Since mobility scooters operate on gel cell batteries, they are safe for transport.

Electric wheelchair scooters are comprised of two kinds: Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive mobility scooters. Front-wheel drive mobility scooters are basically for indoor use and for moving on leveled ground. They are powered by a 12-volt battery and have a range of 5-10 miles for each recharge.

Rear-wheel drive mobility scooters, on the other hand, can carry up to 250 to 350 pounds. Some heavy-duty models can even carry up to 500 lbs. Rear-wheel drive scooters are powered by two 12-volt batteries and can travel 15 to 20 miles per recharge.

A wide range of electric wheelchair scooters are available in the marketplace. Electric wheelchairs and scooters are being designed to suit individualized requirements. The latest models are more maneuverable, highly durable and lightweight. Most online as well as brick-and-mortar stores have experienced and expert staff to assist the customer when buying an electric wheelchair scooter. They also offer specialized services like maintenance and repair, provision of spares like cushions, tires and batteries, routine servicing as well as emergency services. There is also the option of buying used electric wheelchair scooters. All suppliers usually offer shipping services to the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and many other countries.

Some of the most popular electric scooter brands include, Sunrise Medical; Merits; Pride Medical Products; Tuffcare; Shoprider; Golden Technologies; Ranger; Palmer Industries; Quickie; Wheelchairs of Kansas; Roho; Winco; Gendron; Harmar Bruno; and Silver Star.
