How can a waterbed help with rheumatism?

Saturday , 6, April 2019 Comments Off on How can a waterbed help with rheumatism?

Waterbeds are not available for very long. In the nineteenth century, the first waterbed was developed to reduce or even prevent the development of bedsores in hospital and rehabilitation patients.

It turned out to be a success. Of course, the waterbed of today looks different than the first waterbed. But the starting points are still the same: the right support and high comfort. So a waterbed can have many benefits for people with rheumatic disease. These are the most important ones:

  • You can heat a waterbed. This is pleasant for joint and muscle problems because heat relaxes and so can relieve muscle and joint pain. Do you suffer from inflammatory pain? Then you can, of course, set the temperature lower.
  • You have no problems with pressure pain or sagging. The pressure distribution is optimal for a waterbed.
  • A waterbed is individual: you can adjust the hardness, stability and temperature yourself.

A waterbed can be a good choice if you have a rheumatic disease. However, it is important that you choose a waterbed that suits your wishes, needs and any movement restrictions. See below for more information.

Choose a waterbed?

Turning, sitting and getting up can sometimes be a real challenge for people with a rheumatic condition. If a waterbed then also “moves” vigorously, that is particularly tiring. Therefore, it is recommended to choose a water mattress with severe stabilization if you have rheumatism. In a more heavily stabilized waterbed, you also have extra lumbar support that supports a natural posture.

With a double waterbed, you can choose stabilization for each side and adjust the temperature. Your partner can also tailor his / her page to your own preferences.

Although hard side waterbeds are almost unobtainable, we recommend a softside waterbed. The foam rubber cover makes it easy to get in and out of a soft side waterbed. Now go to our site to find outhow much does a tempurpedic mattress cost.
