Motorized Beds FAQs

Shopping for an Adjustable Motorized Bed? Here are some Frequently Asked Questions

Health Questions

Q: Are there any health benefits to sleeping on a Flexabed adjustable bed?

A: A Flexabed adjustable bed may help relieve the symptoms of ailments such as arthritis, acid reflux, asthma, breathing disorders, hiatal hernias, swollen legs and feet, phlebitis, varicose veins, back pain, and neck pain. Because Flexabed fits the bed to your body, you’ll never resort to sleeping in a recliner, stacking pillows or putting blocks under the head of your bed again. A simple push of a button and your head and feet are instantly adjusted to a comfortable, restful position.

Q: Can I use a Flexabed instead of a hospital bed?

A: Flexabed adjustable beds should not be considered as a replacement for a hospital bed. A physician should be consulted when health issues are involved as to the appropriateness of an adjustable bed. For some, Flexabed adjustable beds can provide a solution allowing partners to sleep side-by-side in the same bed while providing flexibility that can appeal to those needing extra functionality. A bracket connects two twin beds to form a single king bed, each side being independently adjustable. Our adjustable beds offer extra features like optional, dual-timed massage, that may not be available in hospital beds and also look like any other bed. Optional side rails provide added security while you sleep and can be folded away when not in use.

Q: I have mobility issues. Can an adjustable bed help me more easily get in and out of bed?

A: The Flexabed Hi-Low SL is the ideal solution because the base can be raised and lowered vertically with the touch of a button. The height of the Hi-Low SL model 23.25 inches from the floor with a gel top mattress and can be raised with the hand control to a height of 30.75 inches. We recommend the optional low profile mattress to further reduce the minimum height to 18.75 inches with or 16.5 inches without casters. The Hi-Low SL is designed specifically with home healthcare or assisted living environments in mind.

Q: Can an adjustable bed help me to sleep better?

A: Possibly, by allowing you to sleep on your back and by inclining your upper body and lower body into a more comfortable position. You can alleviate pressure points common on flat surfaces that bear the majority of your weight by redistributing the weight. Adding a softer mattress can also help. Elevating feet can reduce pressure and swelling while improving circulation.

Q: Can an adjustable bed alleviate my partner’s snoring?

A: Sleep apnea and snoring are very common in both men and women. Slightly elevating the head of the bed has been proven to reduce snoring and apnea and is recommended for people who suffer from this condition. With an adjustable bed, it is as easy as pushing a button. Because snoring and other conditions mentioned on this page are associated with problems affecting long-term health, we recommend also talking to a physician.

Q: Can an adjustable bed help relieve my acid reflux?

A: Laying flat can exacerbate gastric reflux, prompting those who suffer from this condition to prop up pillows or sit in a recliner. Elevating the upper body can help to alleviate symptoms without creating the same back problems.

Q: Can I use my current headboard and bedframe with the HiLow Model?

A: Unfortunately no; the HiLow model is freestadning and any attempt at attaching a headboard or bedframe may damage the bed’s motor.
