The Benefits of Having an Adjustable Base

Adding an adjustable base to your bed enhances the comfort you get providing you with a better quality sleep experience. The M555 increases the comfort you get by offering massage options, preset positioning, and hands-free connectivity. This is particularly good for people who are bed-ridden due to an illness. Those that suffer from sleep apnea, arthritis, RLS, and poor circulation can ease their symptoms by using an adjustable base, as well. The idea of an adjustable base is to increase comfort, relieve aches and pains, and to provide added luxury to your bed. The M555 is a great example of just that, added comfort and functionality.
