FOAM MATTRESSES vs. Traditional Mattresses

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 or heavier.
 
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:

  • You get the same comfort for a lot less money.
  • You can mix and match mattresses with different toppers to design your own personal comfort bed.
  • We guarantee our mattresses will not form depressions for up to 15 years.
  • We recycle our foam.

Sleep is a science - its quality can be measured...

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. Latex Foam and Innerspring mattresses are contrasted here.
