Memory Foam Mattress
Traditional Memory Foam Mattress type first started to take hold of the market in the mid 1990’s and for good reason. Unlike a spring mattress, traditional memory foam has been designed so your body is cradled while you sleep. What this does is helps to increase blood circulation and reduces the amount of stress you get on various joints across the body while you sleep.
Good quality memory foam mattresses distribute body weight evenly, like having billions of little springs supporting you. Pressure points are significantly reduced, up to whopping 80%, which only memory foam can provide. Tossing and turning is the leading cause of a poor night’s sleep which is drastically reduced with a memory foam mattress.
Another benefit worth knowing if you’re changing from a spring mattress is those that are made from memory foam are anti-microbial. This reduces the number of dust mites and other bugs that can make allergies flare-up. In fact, it makes for a much healthier sleeping environment all round.
Traditional memory foam mattresses are made from petroleum-based polyurethane. This type of foam is temperature-sensitive, meaning it reacts by hardening in cold spaces and softening in warm. The buoyant sensation and pressure-reliving properties come from the memory foam’s ability to contour to the sleeper and evenly distribute weight.
