What is an Orthopedic Mattress?

    Is an Orthopedic Mattress Right for Me?

    Orthopedic Mattresses (alternately spelt “orthopaedic”) have been influenced by a number of medical studies released by orthopedic experts. This research helped to create a mattress composition which offers people much-needed relief from aching and sore joints. An orthopedic mattress is categorised as a firm mattress which provides targeted, tailored support for the joints, neck, back and helps to improve your overall body posture.

    An ortho support mattress is the perfect solution of those who suffer frequent back and neck pain, more so in the mornings. Orthopedic mattresses have been specifically designed to provide superior support for key problem areas in your body, ensuring you adopt the correct sleeping position, night after night. Retaining good posture whilst you sleep keeps your spine in perfect alignment and helps the blood to circulate around your body. An orthopedic mattress effectively distributes your bodyweight across an even surface, allowing your body to recharge and heal every night so you can wake up feeling refreshed.

    Two Types of Orthopedic Mattresses

    You'll find that many companies sell slightly different Orthopedic Mattresses however there are two leading styles available on today's market: Pocket Sprung Orthopedic Mattress and the Memory Foam Orthopedic Mattress.

    Pocket Sprung Orthopedic Mattress

    A Pocket Sprung Orthopedic Mattress features a large number of springs which are individually encased in their own fabric pocket. The individual springs enable the mattress to provide tailored support which moves to fit your unique body shape. Due to the detail in the design of a Pocket Sprung Mattress, they are more durable and increase the lifespan of your mattress. As a general rule, the more springs in a pocket sprung mattress, the firmer it will feel.

    Memory Foam Orthopedic Mattress

    The more popular choice is the Memory Foam Orthopedic Mattress. Memory foam has a viscoelasticity that moulds to the contours of your body for enhanced comfort and support.
