Sleeping on an adjustable bed in Zero Gravity position will allow the weight of the body to be evenly distributed to relieve pressure in line with the spinal column. The zero gravity position is a term developed as a position for astronauts to help relieve stress of earth’s gravity on the body while taking off into space. The zero gravity position is achieved by lying on your back, then raising your legs and head above your stomach or heart. This position minimizes the effect of gravity on your back, evenly distributes weight on your body in a relaxed state.
Elevating the upper body while you sleep will reduce the pressure off your lower back and you may experience relief of pain in the back and neck. The zero-gravity position may also take the unneeded pressure off the heart muscle. This allows for the flow of blood throughout one’s body to be improved. The elevation of the legs will promote healthier circulation of the blood, and reduce swelling to the legs and lower body. Lying in zero gravity also allows for the upper body to be elevated so that the stomach acids cannot easily come back up, which may help to ease heart burn and acid reflux.
Choosing an adjustable bed to sleep during pregnancy, will provide a real and measurable relief allowing you to experience a restful and comfortable sleeping position.
