Some PurePedic customers report that they loved their bed from the moment they first rested in it. Some reported they needed an adjustment period (approximately 2 weeks) before they were adjusted to a new sleeping surface. We have some suggestions to help you begin to enjoy the benefits of adjustable sleep. We recommend that you start by elevating your head and feet to the maximum height. This will feel strange at first as you will feel that you have been raised too far. You should remain in that position for a few minutes until it becomes more comfortable for you. You may spend the time reading or watching television. When you are ready to fall asleep, we recommend that you lower your head and feet approximately half way. Because you have been in an upright position, you will feel you as though you are nearly flat, but are in fact very much inclined and in a cradled position. This is reported to be a very comfortable position for sleep.
If you are a side sleeper, it may take some time to get accustomed to this position but it will be worth the effort. If you must sleep on your side, it is not recommended that you elevate either your head or foot, but keep them flat. It is also uncomfortable to raise only the head and keep the foot flat as this puts pressure on the hips and lower back. If you raised your head, we recommend you raise your feet to alleviate this pressure and place you in a cradled position.
