Does Your Foam Mattress Suits Your Unique Sleep Needs?

By Enterprise Technology Review | Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Any mattress created by a quality manufacturer will provide a good night’s sleep. So if you are thinking of purchasing a foam mattress, make sure you buy the right one. 

FREMONT, CA: Foam mattresses have been around for quite a long time. It is known for providing exceptional contouring and pressure point satisfaction, which is essential for side sleepers who need a softer transition to firmer core layers.

However, not all foam mattresses are made equal. It is vital to comprehend the foam type the mattress is made of and the way it impacts the comfort, support, and cooling of the bed. 

Following is a list of some popular foam technologies for mattresses.

1. Latex Alternative Foams

Latex foam has been in use for decades as it delivers contouring support with quick-response support. It is popular among those who desire soft contouring of memory foam but prefer foam that is able to adjust to movements more quickly.

Some people have latex allergies. So keeping that in mind, latex alternative foam offers similar support contouring for a fraction of the price, and does not possess the same features as latex that can cause people latex allergies. 

2. Open Cell Technology

Open cell technology is one of the most cost-effective fixes. The cells in the bed’s foam are popped to deliver better airflow without compromising on support. The open cell technology is used in almost all mattresses as most people consider this the absolute minimum for pleasant sleep. If people have pronounced problems with sleeping hot, just having open cell technology won’t be enough. Before buying a foam mattress with only open cell technology, people need to comprehend their unique sleep needs.

3. Metallic and Gel Foam Infusions

These two types of phone infusions offer distinct benefits for sleepers.

People with immense problems with sleeping hot usually look for foam beds that contain gel infusions in top layers. Gel activity pulls the heat away from the body and supports in letting go of excess heat down into the mattress. Foam with gel infusion are cooler to touch, hence is kept to the uppermost layers of the bed.

Metallic infusions, too, can offer cooling relief as metals like copper and titanium also conduct heat and pull it down into the mattress. However, metallic infusions like copper also promote an anti-bacterial sleeping ambiance, which gives comfortable sleep to those with sensitive skin and allergies. In addition, most metallic infusion, especially titanium, adds strength and durability to the foam, thus making the mattress last longer.

All the above foam mattresses possess a unique quality. However, it is advised to consider individual sleep needs as well. Some will benefit greatly from gel-infused mattresses, while others may prefer those with anti-bacterial copper.
