INFORMATION ON FOAM MATTRESSES
Speciality foam mattresses adapt perfectly to individual body shapes providing comfort and support.
Foam has become such a widely-used material and the two most popular foam mattresses in the world are viscous-elastic (Memory Foam) and HR (High Resilience Foam) which have transformed the way we think about mattresses. For instance, in France, over 70 per cent of people sleep on these mattresses.
Many experts recommend memory foam mattresses for improved rest and relief from complaints like back pain. Memory foam gradually adjusts to your unique body shape and excellent support is provided at pressure points along the shoulder blades, buttocks, head, heels, hips and elbows. In turn, this alleviates stress on the skeleton and muscles, reducing numbness, stiffness and pain. Your need to turn during the night, in search of a more comfortable position is also reduced by up to 80 per cent. This results in a deeper and more satisfying sleep.
The high resilience foam has an even higher elasticity, or springiness, than memory foam. When sleeping on it, your spinal column is straight when you’re lying on your side, and remains in the natural double S-line when you’re lying on your back.
