What is zero gravity mode & how can it help?

18 May 2022

Zero gravity mode on adjustable beds can sometimes be an overlooked feature.

For centuries we as humankind have looked at the stars and wondered what is out in the vastness of space. Only decades ago, we took the chance to break the Earth’s gravitational field and embark on the amazing discovery that is zero gravity. Zero gravity has been something people have only dreamed of and could only imagine through stories of superheroes taking to the sky with one giant leap from the ground. We have all wanted to feel the air around us in a weightless like state. It is a pretty common thought or even dreams most people have had throughout their lives. Thanks to modern technology, we have the ability to fly through the air via airplanes and other safe forms of travel. The closest you would get to the feeling of the air around you would be to go skydiving, and not many people are up to trying that.

Most people who hear the words “zero gravity” tend to think of astronauts floating in their rockets and manually tending to their duties aboard the ship with their team. Sure, that is a common thought when it comes to thinking of zero gravity but the true meaning of it gives you a lot of context on what the concept of zero gravity really is. With zero gravity, your body is suspended in a position where there is no force of any type of gravity acting on your body. Being in this position whether it is reclining in a chair or bed, evenly distributes your weight. Now, I know there was talk of space and astronauts earlier, but that was for good reason. Believe it or not but the zero-gravity technology we know of today was invented by NASA themselves. It is the same type of position that astronauts are in during take-off on their space missions. The reason behind this is that they want to assume a “zero gravity” position to avoid any kind of intense stress their bodies could take during the quick increase in gravity while breaking through the Earth’s gravitational field.

This concept has been applied to many things we do today, such as sleeping and sitting. The zero-gravity concept is mainly used to help people sit and sleep in a more ergonomic position that better affects their health. Scientists and engineers have used technology throughout the years have helped make advances in the concept of zero gravity modes in our everyday ergonomic chairs and beds. It has helped us better understand the best way this concept can continue to increase the reasons behind using it to better all the ergonomic chairs and beds that allow for zero gravity positions or postures when in the right scenario for it. It also gives us a feeling of relaxation that might take us back to our more infant days of being coddled by a parent while we quickly fell asleep.

Zero gravity concepts have changed and also improved from their initial creation to what we know about them today. It has undergone many different versions over the years and has had many brilliant people investigate every angle of what really makes it tick. Many of them have noticed what the effects of them on people here on Earth as opposed to just focusing on the astronauts who are exploring space. Knowing what it can do for people has made the pursuit of constantly improving on the idea a large goal of scientists and engineers all over the world. Their ideas and understanding of the zero-gravity concepts are a drive to fuel them to truly unlock the future potentials it may have on the people who use it with chairs or beds. Many people wonder how they themselves can use zero gravity concepts in their everyday life. Obtaining a zero-gravity position on your own is pretty achievable. You will want to make sure your upper body is upright or raised position that has an angle of 120 degrees so that your head is right above your heart. You then want to make sure that your legs are also elevated with your knees bent and are suspended in the air. You then will want to make sure that your abdomen and thighs are equally angled with your hips.

One of the ways that people are getting the most out of zero gravity concepts is through adjustable bed bases. Many people have used opportunities to have their current sleeping furniture replaced for the chance to get the feeling most people don’t get when it comes to sleeping on a normal bed with an average bed frame. When people hear about adjustable bed frames it sparks their interest in what it can do for them. Sleep is a pretty big thing for most people. It is a way for us to recharge and a way for us to reset our minds to take on the next day’s challenges.
