Sleep is an important marker of overall health. Adults need at least 7 hours of quality sleep each night. Not getting enough sleep can lead to an increased risk of numerous chronic health issues.

A comfortable mattress may be important for overall health, and it may also help reduce markers of pain.

According to a 2015 review, medium-firm, self-adjusted mattresses promote good sleep quality and reduce pain better than other options.

Adjustable mattresses may have their own benefits, based on the areas of the body they can raise or adjust.

Adjustable beds may also help with symptoms of acid reflux and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases recommend placing blocks under the bedposts of a bed to raise a person’s torso while sleeping, which may help relieve symptoms. With an adjustable bed, the person may simply need to adjust the settings as necessary.

It is also worth noting that adjustable beds may alleviate snoring. One study found that using a pillow to alter the position of the head reduced snoring severity in sleepers. Adjustable headrests in beds may have a similar effect.

Adjustable beds may help with other issues as well, such as swelling in the feet and legs. Sitting with the feet elevated may help promote circulation, which is simple with an adjustable bed.

Here we answer some common questions about Craftmatic.
