Relieve Pain

Only an adjustable bed can be put in a Zero Gravity position and help eliminate lower back pain.  Elevate your feet, improve your circulation and let the massage feature work on those aches and pains.  The numerous health benefits have been documented by owning an adjustable bed and getting deep, restful sleep.  A comfort base is the newest technology in bedding and a lifestyle choice.  Specifically, it is a motorized bed base that allows you to put your mattress in different positions.  This is both a convenience and a health benefit.  It allows you to prop the head up a bit to watch TV or read, elevate your legs for comfort, or sleep in the Zero Gravity position to reap numerous health benefits.  The options are endless and can be customized for each individual’s preference.  We spend about 1/3 of our lives in our beds - by pairing your Sleepharmony mattress with a comfort base you are taking the first step to owning not just a mattress but a Complete Sleep System and improving your quality of sleep dramatically.

What is the Zero Gravity Position and why use it?

The Zero Gravity Position on your comfort base will offer you a dramatic change in your sleeping habits and lifestyle.  Your spine has a slight S curve.  When you lie flat on your back you put pressure and tension on your spinal column and back muscles.  Your new comfort base will allow you to position your bed into hundreds of relaxing positions, all without creating pressure, stress or strain on your body.  While sleeping on your back in the Zero Gravity Position, your circulation will be enhanced, your breathing made easier, and your hips and lower back become cradled by the mattress.  Your weight will be more evenly distributed and you will be more comfortable than lying on your side or back on an ordinary flat bed.

Improve your ‘your’ time

Position your bed to the way you live in bed – read, work, watch TV, eat – and yes, even sleep!  Adjustable beds conform to your needs.  Make it easier for you to RELAX while you are paying your bills, surfing the net, or reading to the kids or grandkids.  No need to get your neck in a kink or try to pile those pillows up in the ‘the perfect way’.  Your ideal position can be attained with just a push of a button.

Customize level of comfort and relaxation

A flat bed gives you only one option.  You can customize your adjustable bed to your perfect comfort setting.  Higher-end models can be set to automatically go flat or turn off massage after you fall asleep and even store your ‘ideal’ position in memory.  The 7s Supreme Series Foundation can optionally use your iPhone as a controller.
