Why a Memory Foam Mattress?
A normal spring coil mattress is adequate for someone that has no orthopedic issues. That is they have no kind of muscular skeletal disorder or deterioration that requires a different type of mattress or bed. A spring coil mattress consists of a set of spring coils in the center of the mattress supported by foam padding and then the outer stitched fabric. The foam of course is to make the mattress soft and like a cushion as it would not be comfortable to sleep directly on the springs.
The problem with an innerspring mattress is that springs work by resisting any weight that is placed upon them. So if a person with orthopedic issues sleeps on them, they may experience aggravation and pain from any pressure points that come into contact with the mattress. And for otherwise healthy people, another problem is that the springs will not maintain their support forever. They will start to break down. The problem is, many people are not aware of when the mattress has broken down enough to become potentially harmful as the change is gradual.
Many people do not think that their mattress needs replacing until springs start pushing against or even poking through the surface of the mattress. But by the time it gets to that stage, replacing the mattress is long overdue. Tell tale signs that you might recognize earlier on is that your mattress is soft, it may have developed permanent depressions in the surface, and maybe you even hear and feel springs adjusting when you lay on them. To continue using a mattress like this can be bad for your posture and lead to the development of back pain.
A memory foam mattress does not come with the limitations of spring coils as it does not need to contain any – although some models of bed will include some. Memory foam is a high density foam that has becomes very popular in orthopedic mattresses for its properties of being supportive, flexible and dense enough to support the weight of a body and mold around the body to gently cushion it instead of providing resistance against it.
So while this type of mattress has become popular for people with back pain and other orthopedic issues, it has also become popular with people that have no such issues and want to have a superior sleeping experience. Additionally, while a spring coil mattress can break down within a few years, the lifespan of a memory foam mattress is long. It can last up to 20 years and many manufacturers will offer at least a 10 year guarantee with the mattress to back up its quality.
