Waterbeds v Traditional Beds

Many of us are unaware of what we need to look for when buying a bed. It is a single purchase made once every few years. In between times, we all change: We get older, shed or gain a few pounds! as well as other physical differences, so we should be choosing a bed which can accommodate these changes. Happily, a waterbed does this for you and it is the most versatile and hygienic sleep system known. We ourselves are 80% water and therefore don't need to adapt to the shape of the bed, because the bed adapts to the shape of us.

Your back is not completely flat: the vertebrae are constructed into a series of inter-connecting curves all of which extend outwards and inwards to different degrees, as well as being all of different shapes and sizes. These cannot 'fit' correctly onto a stiff, unyielding orthopaedic mattress which allows gaps to form under the 'inward curves', giving little support and helping to create pressure points. Your waterbed will take into account the EXACT profile of your body, regardless of your size, your weight or the position you sleep in. It accepts that different portions of your body weigh different amounts and yields correctly to both the outward and inward curves inward curves of your spinal structure.

To simplify the difference, a sprung bed works as a result of the compression of the mattress in a downward direction, so is dependant upon your weight to give support. A waterbed will naturally compress downwards. However it will also displace upwards too! UP into your neck; UP into the small of your back and UP under your knees, thus giving even support to the whole of you body without any pressure points. At the same time it encourages good blood circulation with its therapeutic warmth. This is because the bed is heated by an entirely safe, economical and controllable thermostat.
