A Memory Foam Mattress can make a difference to getting a good night’s sleep

There are few things as important as quality sleep and the lack of sleep can cause many health conditions that impact your everyday life. Whether you have an old innerspring mattress or your current mattress doesn’t offer the support your body needs, a memory foam mattress can make a considerable difference in getting a restful night. Among the many features of memory foam, its high-density foam composition is both incredibly soft and highly energy absorbent, making it an ideal surface for sleeping.

Memory foam mattresses offer a few differences from standard mattresses, and should be considered as you explore options to find the best mattress to meet your sleep needs.

1. Memory Foam Provides A True Body Fit

A mattress constructed of memory foam actively moulds around your body in response to heat and pressure, allowing the surface to evenly distribute body weight when occupied and return to its original shape once pressure is removed.

2. Memory Foam Provides Temperature-Control Support

Body temperature can affect how well you sleep. Memory foam beds are manufactured using a temperature-sensitive material, which allows the mattress to adjust your body heat and weight so as your temperature increases, the mattress becomes softer to provide a good night’s sleep. If you’re a typically warm person, you may want to consider a memory foam mattress with a cooling feature such as our market-leading Airflow mattress. Moisture and heat are dissipated away from your body at night and open cells prevent humidity from building up.

3. Memory Foam Provides Pain-Relief Comfort

Memory foam provides health benefits by relieving pain, body aches and soreness, as well as helping your body to recover more quickly from injuries. This is achieved by the memory foam material’s ability to displace pressure from points on your body. Areas of pain have a slightly higher temperature than the rest of the body, and memory foam detects these differences and moulds to the body accordingly by adding or reducing pressure to the area.

4. Memory Foam is Hypo-Allergenic

A typical mattress that has been used for a few years, contains anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million dust mites. Memory foam mattresses, however, are composed of polyurethane foam, which is made of fibres that prevent allergy-causing dust mites from collecting within the bed. So unlike standard mattresses, memory foam’s dense composition prevents the accumulation of these allergens over time.

5. Memory Foam Provides Motion Transfer Resistance

A logical option for couples, memory foam absorbs surface movement to reduce disturbances when a partner moves around in bed. For those who have partners who toss and turn, this is good news as disturbances are kept to a minimum while the mattress conforms to each of your body’s unique needs.

At BodyMould we recognise that everybody has different needs and sleeping styles, so one type of mattress will never suit all. We have three types of memory foam mattresses in our range, offering a choice of comfort and support. And we make them to fit all standard UK beds, as well as EU/Ikea bed sizes.
