How do you know which type of mattress to choose when you’re buying a new one?
The decision may not be easy if you’ve decided that you want to get rid of your old flat bed and invest in an adjustable bed. Here’s a quick guide about this type of mattress:
Memory foam is a material that was originally developed by NASA in the 1960s to use in airplane seats, but these days it can be found in many household items. From office chairs to slippers, memory foam is something that can be used for a variety of purposes. It’s also a very good material to use in mattresses.
This material was originally very expensive, but advances in the way the foam is produced has allowed memory foam to be very accessible. The biggest benefit of memory foam — and the reason why it is used in so many items today — is that the foam is not only high-density, but energy absorbent as well. When used for a mattress, memory foam supports the contours of your body. It also “absorbs” movement, so if your spouse tosses and turns at night, you aren’t as likely to wake up as you would be on a traditional box-spring mattress.
Memory foam mattresses these days come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and many of them have been developed even further to provide extra support where it’s needed. Adjustable beds with temperature-controlled settings often use memory foam mattresses.
Many people find that memory foam mattresses and adjustable beds help them get a full night’s sleep, which is between seven and nine hours. Nine out of 10 Americans admit that they wake up at least once during the night, and it’s estimated that anywhere from 50-70 million people suffer from chronic sleep or wake disorders. If you fall into either of these categories, a memory foam mattress might just be the perfect choice for you.
