Bedsup solution for raising bed
Many of you probably incline your bed to deal with GERD.
Risers or boards put under the head of the bed are the cheapest solution, but we couldn't use them with our large bed frame... it sunk in the middle, plus I don't think risers are good for health of a bed frame. I tried a wedge pillow but couldn't get used to it because it wasn't comfortable when laying on your side... and especially on your stomach. Then we tried this air-inflated thing (I forget what it was called) that goes under the mattress. Like the wedge, it created a curved surface and it felt like we were on a waterbed. Adjustable beds were an option, but those are expensive.
Then I came across this thing called a Bedsup insert. Basically, it's just a wedge-shaped metal frame that you assemble and it sits on top of the flat part of your bed frame. You put the box springs and mattress on it and voila, you have a sloped bed. You can slope it to either 2, 4 or 6 inches.
For those of you who prefer a sloped, diagonal incline surface, but don't want to risk damage to your bed frame, this may be a good solution for a few hundred bucks. We are pleased with it. It's a lot cheaper ($170-$360) than an adjustable bed. It's kind of a pain to assemble, but not horribly difficult, and it works.
I just wanted to note this as a possible solution since I've never seen a bedsup review online.
