Traditional spring mattresses
use foam, springs and padding. When depressions form in these mattresses, the dips can
be very uncomfortable to sleep "around." Bad springs and/or cheap foam
cause these dips. Foam used in traditional spring mattresses is often a
1.2 pound foam. The heavier the foam, the more it will hold up over
time. Make sure the padding in your next mattress is at least a 2.5 pound foam
Pillow-top mattresses frequently dip where your body rests. The foam, polyester, or cotton
in mattress "pillow tops" and futons will compress over time. Most feel great at the start,
but don't last. This is due to the density of the materials used. Remember, foam that is
heavier is better.
Reasons why you should buy foam mattresses:

By analyzing the physical pressure between the body and mattress, you can
determine inconsistent pressure points that inhibit blood circulation. The
Ergocheck System is a specially designed measuring pad with 684 individual
pressure sensors distributed across the testing surface. As you can see in
the Ergocheck results below, the Latex Foam Mattress distributes pressure more evenly
than even the most expensive Innerspring Mattress.
Hospital tests have shown that pressure areas registering above 32 millimeters
of mercury (shown on the graphs below in blue) shut
off capillary blood flow, causing muscle ache, tossing and turning, and other
sleep-related discomforts. By alleviating these high pressure areas you can
enjoy a depper, more restful sleep.

|THE ERGOCHECK SYSTEM
is made up of 684 pressure monitors distributed across the
sleeping surface. Studies indicate that pressure
above 32mm of mercury (indicated in blue) restrict
capillary blood flow and can cause tissue damage.
