It may seem strange at first glance that I’ve included an article about back pain and health in my airbed website. But if you can’t sleep at night because of back pain and other body aches, an airbed may be the answer for you. As you probably know, there are many beds available that are designed specifically to reduce body aches, but they can end up costing a lot of money. Airbeds may be a more affordable option for you, and I believe you should consider the idea at least.
Airbeds at Home
Many of my customers assume that air mattresses are only for people who go on camping trips or spend a lot of time on the road. But airbeds can also be suitable for using at home. If you have mobility issues, an airbed can go a long way to helping you sleep without a lot of body pain.
The air inside the mattress distributes your weight more evenly than some other systems, making it a lot easier for you to find a comfortable sleeping position at night. On a conventional mattress, you might wake up every time you change your position and hit a bump, but this is not likely to happen on an airbed.
My collection of reviews on this website includes some airbeds that let you control the inflation level of your mattress. As well, some are constructed with supporting beams, making them feel like a normal bed. Modern air mattresses are engineered so that inflation and deflation are quick and easy. The best air mattresses are the ones that have remote controls that do all or most of the work for you.
What About Air Loss?
The manufacturers have given this issue a lot of thought, as it is a priority for many customers, especially those who suffer from back pain when they sleep on a bad mattress.
Some airbeds include an innovative pumping system that senses air loss in the mattress. When the inflation level drops, the pump adds air until the mattress returns to your desired firmness level. This happens automatically, and you won’t even wake up!
Stability and Height
This is another important consideration. Although I’ve included lots of reviews of low-profile beds here, you are probably better off with a raised airbed. Often these airbeds are the same height as a conventional bed, making it easy for you to get into bed (and out) just as you would normally.
You may be imagining yourself sitting on the mattress, only to have it tip or slide under you. Don’t worry! Manufacturers have solved this problem for you. Nowadays, weights and grips are added to air mattresses so you won’t move or tip the bed if you sit. It truly is difficult in some cases to feel the difference between an airbed and a regular bed. Check out my review of the EZ Bed from Serta to get a sense of what I mean.
Overall, there’s no need for you to suffer through sleepless nights because of back pain. You don’t even have to give up your camping trips! And the best part is that you won’t have to break the bank in order to get a comfortable bed, even if back pain and body aches are an issue for you.
