What Is A Pocket Sprung Memory Foam Mattress?
A pocket sprung memory foam mattress, apart from being an extremely long name for a type of mattress, is a mattress which brings the benefits from memory foam and pocket sprung together to create the ultimate mattress. The pocket springs allow you to get comfortable while the memory foam moulds to your body shape and together the mattress gives you a great night’s sleep.
What Does ‘Pocket Sprung’ Mean?
A pocket sprung mattress contains individual springs which are sewn into their own individual pockets. A mattress can contain anywhere from 600 to 2000 springs. The higher the spring count, the firmer the mattress will be. An open coil/spring mattress has larger springs which are all connected via wires. What is the difference you ask? Well with an open coil mattress, because all of the springs are connected, whichever way you move the entire mattress will move as well. This isn’t great for couples who tend to toss and turn within the night as if one person turns the whole mattress will. Whereas with pocket sprung mattresses there are thousands of springs separated into little pockets which act as a shock absorber allowing you to wiggle around while your other half is undisturbed.
Pocket sprung mattresses tend to be hand-stitched around the sides which improves its strength and stability. With the springs being contained in little pockets, you won’t feel the metal spring associated with spring mattresses which often leads to discomfort. These mattresses are available in different tensions such as soft, medium or firm. This means that it will provide the same support whatever your weight.
What is Memory Foam?
Memory foam is made from a visco-elastic material which is temperature sensitive. When you get into bed, your body temperature will activate the material and thus will mould to fit your body shape. Memory foam was initially created by NASA to provide supreme support for astronauts during lift off. Memory foam material is becoming increasingly popular and is being used throughout a number of public sectors such as hospitals, nursing homes and sleep centres for its ability to provide support and unrivalled comfort.
This material absorbs weight relieving any joint pain or pressure. After a long day at work, when you go to bed, all you want is to feel like all of your weight has been lifted and with memory foam it will. The temperature sensitive properties act as a great insulator, keeping you nice and warm when evenings are cold. However with the addition of the pocket sprung mattress as a base, you will not over heat as this mattress is breathable and less dense than if you were to purchase a memory foam mattress.
Why Should I Choose A Pocket Sprung Memory Foam Mattress?
This mattress is ideal for people who want to experience the best of both worlds. Pocket springs give the mattress its comfort. Pocket sprung mattresses by themselves contain natural fillings which could affect those with allergies. With the pocket sprung memory foam mattresses you can still experience the comfort without feeling irritated. The temperature sensitive memory foam material moulds to your body giving you the support and pressure relieving elements which all memory foam products offer with the added comfort from the pocket sprung mattress.
