Greetings WFMO blog readers! Customers ask our seasoned sleep experts many questions daily – particularly regarding adjustable bases for mattresses. So exactly what is an adjustable base? Are they worth the money? Why do I need an adjustable base? How can an adjustable mattress benefit my sleep? Adjustable or moving mattress foundations are a fairly recent trend in the sleep industry, so many customers don’t have much firsthand experience with them. Today we’ll hopefully answer all those questions for you, and more!

Why Adjustable Bases?

Adjustable bases are the hot trend in the mattress industry these days. If you recall, a ways back we posted about the results of a recent J.D. Power mattress poll. One major finding was that mattress shoppers who purchased adjustable bases with their new mattress were consistently the most satisfied with their purchase. But why is that?

Most people still use the term “box spring” to describe their mattress foundation, although technically this is incorrect. “Box spring” only refers to a specific type of foundation or base, and they are rapidly being replaced by alternatives – like flat foundations and adjustable bases. Keeping all that in mind, an adjustable base is exactly what it sounds like – a moving mattress foundation. And yes, it can help give you the best sleep of your life! Especially if you have a gel memory foam, hybrid, or Tempur-material mattress.

The many benefits of adjustable bases can be divided into two categories. The first and most obvious are the health benefits. Do you snore, have sleep apnea, or acid reflux? If so, an adjustable base can help you manage your symptoms. How about a back or lumbar pain, restless leg syndrome, or arthritis? The ability to adjust or tilt your sleeping surface can help alleviate all of these symptoms too!

The second type of adjustable base benefits are those of simple practicality. If you’re someone who reads, watches TV, checks emails, etc. in bed, you’ll be blown away by the amount of extra functionality an adjustable bed will add to your bedroom! For a more in-depth look at the benefits, read our previous post on how adjustable bases are revolutionizing sleep.

The Sealy Ease 2.0 has loads of features for an incredible price. The Ease 2.0 has almost limitless numbers of head and foot lift positions, as well as a number or preset settings including the zero-gravity preset, meant to take weight off of your back and simulate weightlessness. It also features adjustable legs, a 650 lbs capacity, and a wireless remote with back-lit soft-touch buttons you can see in the dark.

Rize Tranquility II

Our most affordable adjustable base, the folks over at Rize have thought of nearly everything. As a result, the Rize Tranquility II might be our most feature-packed adjustable bed for the price. With a 70-degree range of movement, you’ll be able to find your sweet spot easily with this adjustable base. Better yet, the wireless programmable remote can save your favorite positions so they’re just one button-press away! Like the other adjustable bases we carry, it also includes a zero-gravity mode. Finally, the Tranquility II is designed to fit within most headboard/footboard/rail systems, folds up for easy transport, and comfortably holds up to 850 lbs.

TEMPUR-Ergo®

As the cornerstone of Tempur-Pedic’s line of mattress foundations, the TEMPUR-Ergo adjustable base takes things to the next level. Sure, it’s got all the basics – like a nearly unlimited range of head and foot lift, plenty of presets including a zero-gravity setting, adjustable legs, a 700 lbs capacity, and a wireless remote with back-lit buttons. But there’s more!

Additionally, the TEMPUR-Ergo also has a soothing, two-zone massage function to relax both your head/neck and your feet! It also has Tempur-Pedic’s unique Quietmode™ feature to gently tilt your mattress to an anti-snoring position. If you or your bedmate snores, this feature is priceless! Lastly, Tempur-Pedic has included USB ports for the convenient charging of all your devices overnight.

TEMPUR-Ergo® Extend

Lastly, the TEMPUR-Ergo Extend is the undisputed king of our adjustable bases. This is for the sleepers who truly want everything. With the TEMPUR-Ergo Extend, Tempur-Pedic “extends” the luxury of the standard TEMPUR-Ergo even further. Sorry, not sorry. You know we can’t resist a tasty pun.

In addition to ALL of the rich features of the TEMPUR-Ergo above, the TEMPUR-Ergo Extend doubles the number of massage zones from two to four. Also, it features extra pillow tilt settings, increases the weight capacity by 100 lbs, and introduces Tempur-Pedic’s exclusive Perfectseat™ technology – ideal for those who like to read, work, or watch TV from the comfort of their bedroom.
