Allowing the mattress to be adjusted both at the head and foot will give the back a surface to sleep on that supports the spine by alleviating pressure on the sciatic nerve. Positioning the base allows for one to sleep comfortably on the back, since the surface will match the body’s contouring as close as possible. Painful conditions, like sciatica that result from the nerve confined in the spine’s base, can be improved.
Slanting the head by 45-degrees relieves compression for the lower back to reduce pain. The angled head also allows for prevention of neckaches by providing a well-supportive platform replacing the need of multiple pillows. Raising the foot of the bed allows for knees to be bent, and legs to be levitated, to take off un-needed pressure affecting the spine.
