Accessory Review Rize Adjustable Base

Adjustable bases, like this model by Rize, have made a huge rise in popularity in the last several years. No longer just for hospitals or nursing homes. Instead they are now being sold as luxury items for young healthy adults that want to sleep more comfortably.

A luxury item that not only is great for watching TV or reading a book, but also for providing healthier sleeping positions. Whether you suffer with back aches or snoring an adjustable bed might be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Having an adjustable base allows you to have your mattress on a movable platform that typically moves the top third of your bed from a flat to an upright position as well as the bottom third of the bed from a flat to an elevated position as well.

These adjustments can help with back, hip and leg issues, as well as acid reflux and snoring and even be great for someone who likes to watch t.v. or read in bed. We have had the opportunity to use the Rize adjustable base and have had a chance to review the function as well as value or this particular brand.

Adjustable bases in general are going to cost much more than a standard metal frame, however, the benefits can prove to be pricelesss. This particular base is a little more expensive then other options, coming in around $850+for a queen size, primarily because it is made in the USA and has specific materials that increase the durability and guaranteed the longevity of the base. This base also has a few more features, like the massage option and various settings, that increase the price too. The Rize adjustable base has passed quality and safety standards that to ensure that it functions properly and smoothly. This base should also last for a long time, it has a 20 year warranty and if you can get a long life out of it then it justifies the price even more.



The Rize adjustable base has several remote operated functions that help you find the most optimal lounging and sleeping positions while laying in bed. The head of the base adjusts from flat all the way to an upright position and every adjustment in between. The foot of the bed also adjusts around the knees and can elevate your feet or you can recline your feet which will lower the foot of the bed for more relaxation.

This particular base also has a dual zoned body massage feature that runs a vibration through the entire base. It also comes with a wireless remote that that has three pre-set memory positions as well as a pre-set to return to a flat position. We find this base functions and moves very smoothly and really does give you the ability to find just the right sleeping or lounging position. If you like a base that has plenty of adjustment options and some of the bells and whistles, like a massage function, this base would work very well for you. It also has a thicker profile that is covered in a sleek black fabric that looks nice with most mattresses.



In general, adjustable bases are going to be much more substantial and heavier than a simple metal frame. This adjustable base comes in a larger box that is the size of a queen size mattress (roughly 80″x 60″x 12″) and is going to weigh around 200+ pounds. This bed also needs a minimal amount of assembly. You basically need to attach the legs, attach the bar at the base of the bed to keep the mattress from sliding down and then plug in.

However, because of the weight and size of this base it is best to get the box to the room it will be in and then assemble where it will be going. Also, make sure that the mattress you are using is one that is recommended to use with a base like this. Any all foam mattresses should work fine and several hybrid mattresses should work well too. Just keep in mind that this base is going to be moving the mattress substantially and having a mattress with a traditional coil system may lead to compromising the integrity of the mattress. Check out some of the foam mattresses that we have reviewed that would work great for this base.



This adjustable base is a good quality, very functional and easy to use base that really does give you endless options for really being as comfortable as possible. This base has also proven to be invaluable at times when getting in and out of a flat bed have been more difficult too. It has helped us specifically during sciatica problems while pregnant, back issues from strains and even just having an upright position option during cold season helps when your nose is congested.
