What are the advantages of a memory foam mattress?

Difficulty sleeping can be the result of many factors such as back problems, skin complaints such as burns and tossing and turning caused by poor circulation. However, the technology of memory foam mattresses helps relieve all of these problems, thereby resulting in a relaxed and undisturbed sleep.

Although only 5% of the British population uses memory foam mattresses, many patients who were recommended to use such a mattress by their doctors, physical therapists or chiropractors report that they had a more relaxed, deeper sleep than before. This is because memory foam mattresses mould to the user’s contours, allowing them sleep in their most comfortable position whilst simultaneously every part of the body evenly, allowing the spine to remain in a natural position. This in turn reduces pressure exerted on the spine, resulting in less tossing and turning during the night.

There are other advantages to using a memory mattress apart from the fact that they provide a better night’s sleep than any rival mattress brand. Whereas most mattresses are excellent breeding grounds for dust mites, memory foam is naturally anti microbial and resistant to dust mites, making them more hygienic. Also, because memory foam mattresses and toppers are hypoallergenic, allergy sufferers can use them. Memory foam mattresses are also very low maintenance compared to other leading makes. This is because mattresses made of memory foam do not sag like conventional mattresses, so as a result they never have to be flipped or turned.  

These wonderful mattresses also are available in a wide range of thicknesses to match the user’s weight, providing a soft feel mattress for anyone of a light to medium build, medium feel for someone of medium to heavy build and medium-to-firm feel. However, the new and evolution type range allows someone of a light build to enjoy a medium-to-firm feel mattress or someone of a heavier build to experience a mattress with a softer feel, showing that there is indeed a memory foam mattress for everyone.

Memory foam topper

Memory foam is an original type of foam, perfect for bed mattresses. Its high density and heat sensitive properties allow it to mould to your exact body shape as you sleep. This ensures that you sleep soundly and comfortably. Unlike a spring mattress, memory foam evenly supports the weight of your body and allows your blood to circulate more efficiently which are vital points in reducing the likelihood of back problems, cramps, stiffened limbs and other ailments.
Memory foam is also great for those suffering from asthma and certain allergies, as it is hypo – allergenic.
Memory foam mattresses are fantastic for a restful nights sleep. However, if you are not able to purchase an actual memory mattress, then memory foam topper is a very good alternative. The toppers are made from the excellent quality memory foam, and you place this on top of your usual mattress.
If you would like to sleep on a topper, but your existing mattress is still strong, in good condition and furthermore still being supportive, then an option is certainly the memory foam topper.  Memory foam toppers are generally made from 6 cm of identical foam to that used in mattresses, and will therefore help in making your bed very relaxing and supportive while you sleep.
All size beds can have memory foam these days - single, double and king size memory foam toppers and can be available with removable covers.
All in all, the memory foam topper is perfect for those suffering from back trouble, is hypoallergenic and anti-dust mite, forms to the shape of your body, come with warranty or guarantee, comes with removable covers which can be washed, and you get a restful nights sleep.

The Comfort of Foam Mattress

Many of us are not careful enough when purchasing mattresses. A good quality mattress needs to offer the correct support and comfort levels to ensure a good night sleep and to help reduce the likelihood of back problems.
The most popular type of mattress in the UK is the spring mattress. Although we may find these mattresses comfortable, they are often not the best mattresses to sleep on as they can sag in the middle over time, due to body weight. On some mattresses you begin to feel the springs as the mattress ages. This is because spring mattresses are made with springs filled with filling. On top of the filled springs are one or two material layers. But as the mattress gets older, these layers of material begin to wear down, the springs begin to push outwards more, and the mattress is not so comfortable as it once was.
A well made foam mattress supports your body and helps to keep your spine straight, which promotes a restful night's sleep. The thicker the layer of foam on the foam mattress , the firmer the mattress, so if you or your partner are of heavy build, make sure you choose a thick enough memory foam layer to support you.
The best type of foam mattress is one which uses dense foam that moulds to the shape of your body by reacting to body temperature which makes the mattress softer with the heat, and moulds to the contours of your body. It distributes the weight of your body evenly which in turn greatly reduces pressure on vital points of the back, hips and shoulders which results in a relaxed and undisturbed sleep. The foam mattress also allows for better circulation whilst providing support. This can lead to less tossing and turning.
All in all a foam mattress can provide you with a better nights sleep and put less strain on your back.
