An adjustable bed gives you the ability to tweak and control the position you sleep in, which can result in more restful and longer sleep as well as greater relief of soreness and reduced snoring.
There’s also the lifestyle perks where you can finally read in bed with support under knees, programming the head of the bed to automatically rise in the morning to wake you up or drifting off to a massage every night.
An adjustable bed is indeed a life-changing upgrade. However, you might be wondering:
Can any mattress be compatible with an adjustable frame?
The short answer is yes.
And when it comes to choosing the best mattress for an adjustable bed, there are several choices available, each with differentfunctions and performance.
- Memory Foam Mattress
A memory foam mattress excels at relieving pain and pressure. It features a unique material that absorbs the pressure by evenly spreading your body weight across its surface as well as contouring to your natural body shape.
When placed on adjustable beds, its all-foam construction flexes easily and allows you to experience pain and pressure-free comfort in a broad range of positions.
- Latex Mattress
Like memory foam mattresses, a latex mattress also has an all-foam composition and is effective at preventing pressure points and pain. However, it has a different feel than a memory foam mattress and is often described as buoyant.
Latex mattresses can come in synthetic and natural varieties. While a thinner latex mattress can easily flex in order to adapt to the adjustable systems of adjustable beds and prove to be highly durable.
- Air Bed Mattresses
An air bed mattress, the kind equipped with adjustable pressure systems, can usually be used on adjustable bases. These kinds of beds have inner air chambers within an encasement and topped by foams or paddings.
Still, bending and flexing can prevent airflow and the single chamber system can seem overly rigid when placed on adjustable bases.
- Innerspring Mattress
This is one of the most traditional and popular kinds of mattresses with the classic coil or spring constructions topped with foam and padding. The standard spring mattresses are not compatible with an adjustable base, however, some manufacturers of today have created more flexible models that are specifically made for adjustable beds.
Although they are usually low-priced than quality foam beds, a spring mattress has the disadvantage of limiting flexibility, creating multiple pressure points and requiring frequent replacement due to its high wear and tear properties.
