By now you are probably aware of the vast number of options that are out there in terms of beds and the products that go with them. In fact, you have been buying beds for your whole life and likely still have not experienced every type of bed that is available because there are that many options. Some bed types are more popular than others, including the common standard mattress on a standard base or box spring. Most people have a similar competition to this unless they have special sleep or health needs in general.
Unsurprisingly, there are two types of beds that have become increasingly popular in the last few years: beds with adjustable bases and sleep to stand beds. These beds, while similar in name, are actually very different and have different uses and capabilities. They each have their own benefits as well as their obvious differences. Here is how a sleep to stand bed is different than an adjustable base.
Differences between a sleep to stand bed and an adjustable base
Range of motion
The main motivation for purchasing either of these types of beds is for the range of motion that they offer. Both an adjustable base and a sleep to stand bed have an incredible range of motion, but there are some key differences that you must be aware of. An adjustable base on a normal mattress, regardless of the size, can move either your head or your feet upwards. Some adjustable bases can move both areas at the same time, while others can only do one or the other.
In comparison, a sleep to stand bed can go from vertical to horizontal in less than a minute. You can use your sleep to stand bed as a flat bed, a chair, or you can simply elevate your head. Unlike an adjustable base, a sleep to stand bed can only raise your head rather than both your head and your feet. This is a small trade off especially because a sleep to stand bed can go both fully vertical and fully horizontal.
Ease of access
One of the biggest points of how a sleep to stand bed is different than a bed with an adjustable base is the ease of access. A bed with an adjustable base is simply that, a bed with an adjustable base. The bed is still flat and potentially difficult to get into. Even when the head is fully raised, you could still have trouble getting into said bed. As for the EZ Lift Bed, you can adjust the bed into a chair and sit on it. This will allow you to be lowered into bed safely as opposed to attempting to lay down and putting yourself at risk.
To put it simply, a bed with an adjustable base is just a normal bed that can move up and down in a very limited manner. It is no safer than a normal flat bed with a non-adjustable frame unless you add your own safety precautions. On the other hand, the EZ Lift Bed comes standard with safety features that will make sure you get in and out of bed with no harm done. The bed’s speed is reasonable, allowing you to comfortably lay down and it also comes with arm rails. Attached arm rails give you the extra confidence you need to get into and out of bed safely.
Size of bed
Most of the time when you hear about a bed with an adjustable base, you probably think of a queen or king. That is not the case with the EZ Lift Bed as it only comes in twin or twin XL. To some the smaller size of the bed may be a bit of a turn off, but the safety features and high-quality construction make up for it.
