What's all this talk about Zero-G?

10th May 2021 • 2 min read

You may have heard of Zero-G adjustable beds, but what exactly are they? Read on to find out!

Adjustable beds and bed frames are becoming increasingly popular across all age groups, though the stigma that they are designed only for the elderly and physically impaired still exists. 

This is certainly not the case, and with many of us spending more time at home and in our beds, now is the perfect time to share one of the latest advancements in adjustable bedding; Zero-G!

What exactly is it?

Zero-G, or zero gravity, is the feeling of complete weightlessness and pressure relief, much like what an astronaut experiences when floating in space. So, when a bed base and/or mattress promotes its Zero-G capabilities, it is replicating this experience, but in a bed and while you sleep!

How does it work?

When you select the Zero-G position on a compatible mattress and base, the bed frame raises the head, shoulders and legs to an angle that aims to relieve all pressure (pictured below). While not all adjustable bases may have a default Zero-G setting, many can be adjusted to replicate the position. 

Is it actually good for me?

There are many potential benefits of lying or sleeping in a Zero-G position. The relief of all pressure provided by Zero-G may prevent back pain, regardless of which position you sleep in. Through this position, your body’s natural blood flow is also improved and your airwaves are able to breathe easier, which may lead to faster recovery from muscle soreness and injuries. Best of all, Zero-G may reduce you or your partner’s chance of snoring!

How do I know if my bed can use the Zero-G position?

Zero-G, and other adjustable base positions, can only be achieved if both your mattress and frame are adjustable compatible. Unfortunately, traditional mattresses, bases and frames are unable to provide this feature (unless specified by the manufacturer).
