This spring unit is considered on the whole to be the best spring option available. Each of the springs sits in a pocket, normally made out of material and looks a little like a bag. These pockets are then connected together to give you the spring unit, with each pocket having a spring inside that works independently of the others, this allows the mattress to contour to the shape of your body. The added advantage of this type of spring unit is displayed best on a bed that is being shared by two people – both people are supported independently on each side of the mattress regardless of size and weight.
Visco Elastic Memory Foam
Visco elastic memory foam (VEMF) has been around since the early seventies, however it’s use in beds has been limited until recent years. It was originally developed by NASA to relieve the pressure encountered by astronauts during lift off. Today this material is used in many areas of domestic life and has become a familiar name in the bed retail industry. It is made up of millions of microscopic memory pockets that react to body heat and weight, and mould to the contour of the body. With it moulding to the shape of your body’s contours it gives optimum support and pressure relief. Early VEMF encountered complaints of the occupant in bed getting to hot, however modern VEMF has overcome this to give a nights sleep that is comfortable in terms of temperature.
Latex mattresses have elastic properties, and aides a good sleeping posture, and is also a very supportive and durable material. As latex is a natural product it is eco friendly hypoallergenic, and inhibits bed bugs and dust mites.
A reflex foam mattress provides comfort without sacrificing support.
Orthopaedic as a term has many areas that it is liked to, no more than the medical profession. As far as beds go orthopaedic in general means a firm bed. Several years ago it was a buzz word in the bed retail industry, and it was said that an orthopaedic mattress gave the best support properties for people with bad backs. This has since been proven to be untrue as people are so unique. What will be good for one person may not necessarily be good for another. The most important factor is that your bed gives you the best support and allows your spine to have good alignment whilst in bed.
Although it looks and sounds like a medical term it does not really mean anything medically or otherwise. It is more a term that is used to describe properties of products that have a diminished potential for causing allergic reaction. In simple terms this means that one the product that contains Hypo Allergenic materials compared with another is less likely to cause an allergic reaction for allergy sufferers.
This refers to a rich patterned fabric manufactured from cotton, linen, silk or wool. These pattern fabrics are available in a variety of patterns and represent to some degree the style of today.
This is a process where a tufting string is passed through the mattress and connected on the top and bottom of the string with buttons. You can recognise a tufted mattress by its appearance, it is very wavy due to it being pulled in every few inches with tufting buttons. The main difference you will find with a tufted mattress is that it gives an overall firmer feel as the tufts pull the springs together and therfore put more tension on them.
Non Turn Mattress
More modern mattresses these days are non turn mattresses. The benefit of this is that you do not have to turn your mattress over periodically to enable it to keep its properties.
Long gone are the days that firmness equalled a good supportive sleep. I do just about remember the days that people put planks of wood under a mattress to firm it up in the hope that it would help with relieving back pain. This is not the case these days and what is right for one person is not necessarily going to be right for another. People are unique by virtue, and with this in mind it is going to be an individual choice when it comes down to choosing a soft feel or a firm feel, and any of the options in-between.
Correct support is the essential ingredient for healthy body. A good mattress and foundation will gently support your body at all points and keep your spine in the same shape as a person with a good standing posture. Pay special attention to your shoulders, hips, and lower back - the heaviest parts. If there is to little support, you can develop back pain. But if the mattress is to hard for you, you can experience uncomfortable pressure.
