A memory foam mattress, also known as an orthopedic mattress is designed to provide more support and comfort to people suffering from back pain, arthritis and similar conditions.

Having a memory foam mattress can help you to avoid irritating your back and help you to get a good night's sleep. In this article we will look at 6 benefits of an orthopedic mattress.

Spine support

A memory foam mattress by its very nature is much more adept at supporting the body's natural shape than a traditional mattress. The human spine has a double S shape. Back problems can be caused by not having a correct sleeping profile due to a weak or unsupportive mattress. This is especially likely if the mattress has been used for longer than it should have.

Good for sufferers of orthopedic complaints

The nature of memory foam is such that this material will gently mold around the shape of your body providing a cushion and support for any painful areas instead of resistance and agitation.

Better product lifespan

An orthopedic mattress will often be backed by a substantial guarantee period. Ten and Twenty year guarantees are not uncommon. This is an assurance from the manufacturer that they have confidence in the quality of their product. With a pocket spring mattress, you are lucky if the mattress remains in good condition for at least ten years.

Better quality of sleep

If you are comfortable and well supported in bed then you are set to sleep better than in a bed that can not provide these things. Some people even describe the effect of sleeping on a memory foam mattress like sleeping on air.

Anti roll-together effect

Memory foam is great at localizing the support around the immediate source of weight only, that is to say it localizes support around the body of one person, without creating a depression that extends towards the other person, causing him/her to roll towards you.

Reasonable price

Although the up front cost of a memory foam mattress is more than a traditional pocket spring mattress, the mattress will quickly pay for itself. It will do this because during the lifespan of an orthopedic mattress, the time for replacing a pocket spring mattress would come at least once or twice. That is without mentioning the fact that you would be buying a higher quality mattress from the outset anyway.
