Adjustable Mattress and Beds in Canada
The Adjustable Bed and Adjustable Mattress: A Primer
You’ve heard of the adjustable bed before in Canada. Who doesn’t like the idea of propping themselves up to read a book or watch TV while in bed? Adjustable beds offer convenience, comfort, and control, but it wasn’t originally meant for a better night’s sleep. How was the adjustable bed invented? What was it used for? And how does it benefit you, the sleep fan, to switch to an adjustable mattress and bed system? We at Omni Mattress™ take a quick look at the history, the concept, and the viability of the adjustable bed.
The Adjustable Bed: A Medical Marvel
The idea of elevating yourself in a resting position isn’t new, as history has examples of furniture and beds with an elevated position. However, it was hospital beds that proved sleeping sitting up had amazing health and recovery benefits. The first sit up bed was invented by the Andrew Wuest and Son Mattress Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, back in 1874. This predecessor to the adjustable hospital bed had a hinged head to elevate the upper body.
The first true adjustable hospital bed came in the early 20th century. Dr. Willis Dew Gatch, a chair of the Department of Surgery at the Indiana University School of Medicine, invented a three-segment adjustable hospital bed. He hoped to prevent patients from injuring themselves when moving to adjust their comfort on a standard bed. Allowing to be adjusted in multiple ways to elevate the back and legs, the ‘Gatch Bed’ allowed for easier post-surgery recovery and easier ways to drain surgical lacerations. The Gatch Bed served in American hospitals during the First World War and evolved to become the standard hospital bed design. Upgrades such as adjustable controls and electric motors made the bed easier to adjust for hospital staff and patients alike.
Craftmatic Adjustable Beds and the Adjustable Mattress Revolution
Just like how NASA’s memory foam turned into the modern day memory foam mattress, innovative material s and construction eventually filters its way to the civilian market. There was a need for people who did more in their bed, from watching TV to reading a book, all pretty uncomfortable when you try to do them without sitting up. As more households had TV’s in their bedrooms, the demand for a more comfortable bed in a sitting position grew. Who would deliver on this demand? Craftmatic, and their line of Craftmatic Adjustable Beds.
1974 saw the arrival of the Craftmatic Adjustable Bed. It was advertised as being more comfortable, its adjustable features more convenient for activities like watching TV or reading. It was also advertised as a perfect bed for the elderly or sick people at home. It was a big hit with sleep fans! This led way for the modern adjustable bed we see today. With electric motors, wireless adjustable controls, and now gel-infused best memory foam mattresses Canada, the adjustable bed became the ultimate sleep platform by the 21st century.
