Choosing Guidelines For Buying Enduring Air Beds

Some people prefer an air bed to relieve back pain. Though a number of companies are offering a wide range of air beds to relieve back pain, it is absolutely necessary for the buyer to be informed about the things to check while choosing the air bed that customize to his needs. Let me discuss some of the guidelines to follow while buying an air bed in this article.

air beds

Choose a raised mattress
A raised mattress is more beneficial for back pain than a lower mattress. The ideal height of the air bed must be above the knee level and somewhere below the hip. This does not put so much stress on the lower back for getting up and sitting down. Also a raised mattress has more air in it to support the back than a lower one.

Choosing the material
A PVC mattress is more preferable than a Nylon mattress and is a better to choice for back aches. PVC mattresses are more durable and grips to the floor better than the Nylon. PVC mattresses trap more air and hence good for the back, to sleep through the night. It is also water proof and more resistant to being poked and hence more durable than the Nylon. Nylon mattresses on the other hand are very slippery and hence slip off as you turn while sleeping not giving enough support to the back. Moreover nylon air beds can be easily punctured by rough terrain letting the air to escape not giving enough support to your back.

Choosing the right air pump
Choosing a good air pump plays a vital role to manage back pain. A built in air pump can put less stress on the back as compared to the one that use manual force. The air pump that uses manual force put more strain on the back, as you go up and down to inflate your air bed. This is not only time consuming but there is a danger of uneven distribution of air, may be too much high or too much low and is potentially dangerous to the back. A built in air bed can afford even distribution of air and allows controlled airflow depending on the persons back problems. An air bed with latex or memory foam and those that can selectively relieve the back are also popular choices available in the market.
