Let us learn today about articulated bed bases.
The articulated electric bed bases are beds equipped with high-performance motors, which facilitate their adaptability and maneuverability.
Sometimes, we cannot maintain a correct posture when sleeping on a flat surface, which increases tension in the muscles and joints, reducing rest and body recovery.
The articulated bed bases allow a personalized rest adapted to the different parts of the body such as the head, dorsal area, lower back, legs… combining the technical and ergonomic advantages.
The popular belief is that articulated bed bases are only indicated for hospitals, nursing homes or in individual cases, for people who, due to age or illness, have reduced mobility.
In this article, we will see that any person, whatever their age or physical condition, can benefit from the use of them.
There is a rule that regulates the number of joints, measures, and angles that articulated bed bases must have. The degrees marked for each articulation are:
A: Inclination of the trunk plane. Between 0º and 70º, essential to avoid uncomfortable postures.
B: Knee raising. Between 0º and at least 12º, it allows raising the legs more and rest them favoring the venous return.
C: Flexion of the body. Greater than 90º, this angle is key to avoid uncomfortable postures.
D: Inclination of feet. It must be adjustable between 0º and at least 20º.
The benefits of sleeping on an articulated surface are multiple. The main one is that it allows adopting an ergonomic posture, allowing maintaining the natural curves of the spine. It reduces the swelling in the legs, since it allows the inclination of the feet, making them stay slightly above the rest of the body.
If combined with memory mattresses such as viscoelastic, blood flow is improved by promoting circulation.
Some of the health problems in which the articulated bed bases can provide temporary or long-term relief are: back pain, shoulder and neck tension, asthma-like breathing problems, gastric reflux, swollen legs, heart problems, lack of mobility in the articulations and evidently as help to manipulate a person bedridden or with very reduced mobility.
