  • adjustable beds - Tempurpedic

    I am in the process of looking around for an adjustable bed. After my few hospital stays, I have concluded that I really need one. I'm sick of sleeping with 2 pillows and still not in a comfort zone for my heart. Anyway, went looking today and fell in love with the Tempurpedic mattress. I went onto "eopinions" on the web and wanted to read reviews (pros and cons), especially people with health ailments and how the mattress helped. I read in one post that the person mentioned that if you have a pacemaker, you shouldn't use the "vibrating massage" feature...anyone heard of this?? I don't have a pacemaker but may in the future...just checking

    Re: adjustable beds - Tempurpedic

    Please don’t get caught in the “may in the future” syndrome. I mean, you may in the future become allergic to your favorite foods, so you’d better not eat them now. You may in the future be restricted from doing all the things you love best, so you better not do them now. You will in the future (far future I hope) become dead, so you’d better live in a box now.

    If you would like to get the vibrating action, do so. If, sometime in the future, you get a pacemaker and the doctor says not to use the vibrating feature, no longer turn it on – but unless or until that bridge must be crossed, enjoy yourself.

        Yes, do it. I didn't let my impending ICD implant stop me from riding Rock N Roller Coaster like 12 times before I flew to Boston! Besides I don't think the function will bother it I mean those message chairs at the Sharper Image don't have warnings and I sit in one of those every time I get the chance. I also do it at my chiropractor's office
