Benefits of a Memory Foam Mattress
When you lay down, your body has several pressure points that can lead to pain if they are not properly supported. For example, side sleepers have pressure points on their shoulders and hips. Additionally, those with arthritis or joint pain can have trouble sleeping at night. A memory foam mattress may alleviate pain when lying down.
Traditional spring mattresses typically have a top foam layer to mask the springs. This layer wears down over time, exposing the springs and adding discomfort. Memory foam does not use springs so there is no potential for an uncomfortable mattress spring experience. If the mattress is a hybrid, with both springs and Memory foam, the high durability of Memory foam will ensure that the springs do not make an appearance for years to come.
Proper Spinal Alignment
A Memory foam mattress aligns with your body. This is achieved through its viscoelastic properties. Your body heat softens Memory foam, making it more viscous and makes you sink in as you apply weight to the foam. As you lay down, the foam contours to you, creating a body mold when sleeping and providing proper spinal alignment for a more comfortable sleep.
Memory foam’s viscoelasticity and density allow you to sink into the foam as you lay down. This leads to the absorption of movement. If you sleep with a partner, you are less likely to feel them move and vice-versa. This will help prevent you or your partner from waking up from tossing and turning throughout the night.
Its dense elastic structure makes Memory foam hypoallergenic by reducing the number of allergens that can build up in the foam. These allergens, such as mold and dust are not able to penetrate the foam mattress. As such, Memory foam is an excellent choice for people with allergies who are prevented from getting a good night’s sleep.
