It is possible to improve symptoms from oedema and poor circulation by raising your legs as little as just 1 or 2 inches above the resting height of your hips while lying down by when using an adjustable bed.

This simple practice can help improve circulation and reduce the build up of fluids in the lower extremities like your legs and feet.

It will also prevent you from ‘hoisting’ your body upright each morning and this will greatly reduce strain on your back and shoulders.

Simply press a button and site up in comfort while fully supported and take your time to read emails, books or watch television.


High leg lift (rise and recline) chairs can also offer the same benefits. Particularly in combination with an adjustable bed if you want to offer as much support and comfort as possible.
