Orthopedic mattresses (also spelt ‘orthopaedic’) are special mattresses with a medically-inspired design. They are brilliant for relieving aches, pains and sore joints while you sleep.
Do I Need an Orthopedic Mattress?
If you regularly suffer from back pain, neck pain or swollen joints an orthopedic mattress is perfect. The medically-inspired design:
Provides superior support for key problem areas
Evenly distributes body weight and relieves pressure points
Encourages correct spinal aligment during the night
Promotes healthy blood circulation
Much more than just a place to rest your head, an orthopedic mattress actually helps your body to rest and recover so you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day – not full of aches and pains.
Types of Orthopedic Mattress
There are two main types of orthopedic mattress, both of which we manufacture onsite at our Yorkshire HQ – Memory Foam and Pocket Sprung. Both are quite firm and provide great support, so mainly it’s down to personal preference.
Memory foam is a visco-elastic material which is naturally suited to orthopedic mattresses. It’s a temperature-sensitive material, so as soon as you lie down the memory foam will start reacting and moulding to the shape of your body. This is perfect for an orthopedic mattress because it:
Provides full body support
Promotes correct spinal alignment
Which in turn encourages healthy blood circulation
Reduces tossing and turning by up to 80%
Insulates you from disturbance by a restless partner
All of our memory foam orthopedic mattresses come with a temperature-regulating cover too, so that you don’t get too warm during the night.
Pocket sprung orthopedic mattresses are also a great choice. Our pocket sprung orthopedic mattresses feature:
Large numbers of springs (1500+) to provide high levels of support
Each one of which is individually encased in its own fabric pocket for bespoke support
Remember: the more springs the firmer the mattress (as a general rule of thumb)
