Sleep disorders are a common occurrence among seniors. While most report that they can fall asleep fairly normally, many can’t stay asleep and/or the quality of their sleep is poor. This problem is frequently caused by various physical or medical issues, including: sleep apnea (chronic snoring), joint and other body pains, feeling too hot or cold, breathing difficulties, acid reflux and other conditions. While getting a new and high quality traditional bed might help – this often won’t really rid you of these problems.

Thankfully for these seniors, there is a new kind of bed available, known as a “smart bed”. These beds are not simply the adjustable type of beds that you are probably familiar with (although they do adjust), but beds that can custom tailor themselves to your individual needs and preferences to allow you to get proper sleep. They do this by using an array of sensors and mechanical devices that are built into the bed that can custom tailor things like the temperature of the bed, its firmness, its angle both for the head and feet and even massage functions. This is all coordinated and controlled usually through a smart phone app. All of this leading to the term “smart bed”. While these types of beds are expensive – they can provide you with the precious gift of enough and proper sleep, which in turn can greatly improve your overall health. Listed below are the best smart beds for seniors.
