    The Importance of Healthy Sleep

              Here are a few questions you need to ask yourself.


  • How long does it take you to fall asleep?
  • Do you Toss and Turn trying to get comfortable?
  • Do you sleep through the night?
  • Do you wake up several times and cannot get back to sleep?
  • Do you wake up too early in the morning and cannot go back to sleep?
  • Do you feel groggy and lethargic during the day?
  • Hard to stay focused and force yourself to stay awake?


If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have a Sleep problem. 

Suffering from lack of sleep can be affecting your quality of life.  Proper sleep is essential for good health, proper mental and emotional functioning and ultimately our safety.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has estimated more than 100,000 auto crashes annually may be fatigue-related.  Have you ever dozed at the wheel and felt the car wander or had a horn blast that woke you up in the nick of time?


There are many different reasons why there is a need for an Adjustable Bed, from having Acid Reflex or Sleep Apnea to needing an Adjustable Bed for a medical reason, to be able sleep with the head in an elevated position.  Many people sleep in a recliner because they are not comfortable in a flat conventional bed, as they have lower back issues.  It all starts with the frame having a slight bend to cradle the body.  You will never sleep flat again, the foot of the bed must always be raised at least 4 to 6", more if in a sitting position, legs are always elevated; taking the pressure off of the back, hips and keeps the person from sliding down.  When sleeping properly the body will do what it was designed to do, repair the cells.   Not sleeping deeply the cells will only be duplicated and not be repaired, so nothing changes.


The quality of sleep is more important then the quantity of sleep.  Getting enough sleep without interruptions from your environment or internal factors. Sleeping on the proper bed and mattress will result in more restful and restorative sleep.  Poor sleep can be a symptom of larger problems.  Lost productivity due to sleeplessness has been estimated to cost the national economy as much as $100 billion annually.  The Shuteye Adjustable Bed System is the place to start and your body will thank you everyday.


  Bariatric Tranquility Bed 

Buying a bed can be very confusing. Your bed is the most important piece of furniture that you own; spending more time in bed then anywhere else.  Bariatric not only applies to weight but also size.   When a wider bed is needed, it is automatically put into the Bariatric category.  If you are disabled, regardless of your weight; want a wider bed for your home that doesn’t look like a typical hospital bed, but a bed that can handle all your special needs, a bed that will work for you for years to come, you have found the right company.  The Sleeper Lounge Company was closing their factory and this bed could not disappear after 65 years of serving people in need.  Versa Products, stepped up to the challenge, redesigned the bed; now built like a Sherman Tank; has brought the bed into the 21st Century to help people in need to have more independence and a better Quality of Life.  Built completely in the USA

An alarming amount of the population is overweight. People are living longer; some are on life saving medications causing retention of water and weight gain. Being disabled and lack of exercise is a large part of the problem. An obese person is more likely to end up in the Hospital and then be sent to a Nursing Home.

Are you prepared to handle this weight patient?

Bariatric not only applies to weight but also size. When a bed is needed other than a standard hospital bed of 36" it is automatically put into the Bariatric category. If you are a Hospital, Sleep Center, Nursing Facility or a Caregiver the problem is very real. A certain percentage of your patients will be this overweight patient and need special Bariatric equipment for the daily tasks of living. I have taken the time to research and gather the basic equipment that we all take for granted.
