CONFUSED ABOUT WHAT KIND OF MATTRESS IS BEST FOR YOU?
An innerspring mattress is made with a steel coil innerspring support system, with various foams and fibers on top to provide comfort at the surface.
The number of coils in a mattress varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and is based on a queen-size mattress (i.e. twin mattress have fewer coils, kings have more); but the coil count is not necessarily as important as the construction.
INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED COILS
Individually wrapped coils are the most popular coil support system on the market. They provide individualized comfort by contouring to your body perfectly. They also do not transfer motion so you can sleep undisturbed even if your partner moves at night.
Individually wrapped coils move independently and are in their encased in separate pockets so they can contour precisely to each person and provide, deep, comforting pressure relief.
Memory foam is polyurethane with additional chemicals increasing its viscosity and density. It is often referred to as “viscoelastic” polyurethane foam, or low-resilience polyurethane foam. Higher-density memory foam softens in reaction to body heat, allowing it to mold to a warm body in a few minutes.
Faster speed of recovery of a foam to its original shape after a weight is removed is sometimes claimed as an advantage by memory-foam mattress producers, who may talk of “newer generation” foams with “faster recovery”.
MEMORY FOAM HYBRID
A memory foam hybrid mattress combines the support of a traditional steel coil innerspring with the comfort of memory foam.
An adjustable bed is a bed which has a multi-hinged lying surface which can be profiled to a number of different positions. Common adjustment includes inclining the upper body and raising the lower body independently of each other.
Other common features include height adjustment and tilting the bed to raise the upper body or the lower body into the Anti-Trendelenburg/Trendelenburg positions.
