How can adjustable beds help you snore less?

If you’ve tried everything to stop yourself or your partner from snoring, an adjustable bed that allows you to open up the airways while you sleep may be the answer you’re looking for. 

Electric adjustable beds help you find your perfect sleep position and provide many orthopaedic and mobility health benefits - including letting you sleep easily without snoring. 

There are a variety of different adjustable beds available, including singles and doubles and dual-controlled adjustable beds that let you and your partner have full control over your unique sleep positions. 

What causes snoring?

To understand how electric beds reduce snoring, let’s first take a look at what causes snoring.

There are many reasons why people snore, but the simple answer is that we snore when our airways aren’t fully open for air to move freely. This obstruction creates vibrations in the tissue surrounding your nose and throat, which is where the sound of snoring comes from. 

People who snore regularly tend to have thicker tissue surrounding their nose and throats, creating even more of an obstruction.

Sleep apnoea and potential dangers. 

While the sound of snoring can be annoying for partners and other people in the house, sometimes snoring can be dangerous for our health too. 

Sleep apnoea is what happens when instead of your airways narrowing, they completely shut down and stop you from breathing

If this lasts for more than 10 seconds, it’s sleep apnoea.

Some people who have sleep apnoea may wake up briefly during this time (because it’s your brain that has to restart your breathing again). Others may be completely unaware. It can happen multiple times at night - and, in more severe cases, hundreds of times per night. 

Sleep apnoea can dramatically affect your sleep quality, especially if you wake up every time. However, it can also lead to other health problems, including high blood pressure, increased chances of having a stroke, and poor mental health. 

Naturally, poor sleep quality means that it’s more difficult to concentrate during the day, which can also increase the risk of accidents caused by tiredness.

How can adjustable beds reduce snoring?

As one of the main causes of snoring is obstruction in your airways, adjustable and electric beds help by supporting your body in a position that keeps your airways open. 

All of our adjustable beds feature Anti-Snore Technology - a neck tilting platform designed to open the airways to reduce snoring.

In general, positioning yourself in this way can bring a number of health benefits, including increased mobility, improved circulation and less pressure on your joints. 

What’s more, if snoring in the bedroom is reduced - the other people in your household will be grateful to get an undisrupted and peaceful night’s sleep - it really is a win-win.
