Adjustable beds are more popular than ever. What was once relegated to hospital wards and senior care homes are now making their way into residential bedrooms. But what exactly is so special about these bed frames? How do they work? More importantly, are they better for your sleep as often advertised?

Here’s what you need to know about adjustable bed bases.

What is an adjustable bed?

It’s exactly as the name suggests — a bed that allows you to customize its alignment into the comfiest position for you. In terms of physical appearance, adjustable beds have similar configurations as their traditional counterparts. The main distinguishing feature is the motorized frame that lets you adjust the head and foot areas of the bed as you see fit.

Many people, especially the elderly or those with health concerns, may sleep better with their heads elevated or with their legs slightly raised. With an adjustable bed, you can make it happen at the push of a button. Some of the latest designs allow for seamless integration with smart-home technology, such as USB ports, sleep monitoring, wireless connection, and even voice assistance.

The adjustable bed base is the most critical component

This is the part that controls the adjustability of the bed. It needs to be in perfect working condition so you can get into the ideal sleeping or relaxing position. Every adjustable bed base has two main components:

  • Sleeping surface — This is where you’ll place the mattress.
  • Joints — The joints on an adjustable bed frame are specially designed so they rotate a certain percentage. This is what allows you to customize the bed’s alignment.

When they were first introduced, adjustable beds were primarily used by the elderly or those with mobility issues. Over the years, and as their health and lifestyle benefits got more prominent, they are now used by people of all ages.

How do you control it?

It mostly depends on the manufacturer. The adjustable bed bases we manufacture here at Innova Sleep Systems come with a remote control, so it’s a simple matter of tapping a few buttons to get into your comfiest position. We made the interface as user-friendly as possible with a one-touch flat button.

For added convenience, each unit is equipped with a mattress retaining bar to hold the mattress in place as you make your adjustments. Some designs also feature programmable memory positions so you don't have to go through a new adjustment process each time you use the bed.

Thanks to our state-of-the-art factory, we control every aspect of the bed manufacturing process. This allows us to create custom bed designs to suit your preferences.

Are they really better for a good night’s sleep?

Absolutely! Having a bed that you can seamlessly adjust to support the natural curvature of your spine means you get to enjoy a more comfortable sleep.



Many adjustable beds also come with a number of features designed to promote better sleep quality. These include massage functions, under-bed lighting, and flat lumbar support. Learn more about how an adjustable bed base helps with better sleep.

As with all types of beds, sleep is not the only deciding factor. An adjustable bed can also benefit you in other ways, such as being able to keep your upper body slightly upright to have breakfast in bed or watch TV.
