How does memory foam mattress prevent postural defects

Orthopedic Mattress

Which is the best orthopedic mattress? Where can you find an online mattress that will not cause postural defects in you? Is this a waterproof mattress? If not, how can you ensure it remains hypoallergenic and hygienic for a longer period of time?

Today we will be answering all these questions which we have received over the last few days. We are clubbing the answers to these together because we realized they cover the topic “mattresses for better posture”. So instead of dedicating one entire post to each question, we thought we could do a post on how memory foam mattress prevents postural defects. We hope you will find this helpful. 

How memory foam mattress helps with better posture

Memory foam mattresses have the unique ability to conform to the body shape of the sleeper. As such, this mattress ensures no pressure points are created in the sleeper’s neck, shoulders, and hips. When you sleep on a memory foam mattress, you need not worry about waking up with an ache or a strain in your joints. This also means memory foam mattresses can accommodate all types of sleeping positions. Whether you sleep on your stomach, your back or your sides, the mattress will treat you equally and offer you its benefits. Even mixed sleepers, people who alter their sleeping position through the night, have nothing to fret about. The mattress will adapt to your body shape regardless, thus cradling you to the ultimate sleep. 

The mattress also uniformly distributes the bodyweight of the sleeper so that no restlessness or blood clots are caused in their body. The support offered by the mattress and its body-conforming qualities together keeps the sleeper’s spine naturally aligned. Your spine will not be bent in an unnatural way. Therefore, your posture will not be ruined over a period of time. Instead, it will be improved. Remember we spend one-third of our lives sleeping. So when your spine and hips are being taken care of one-third of the time, your posture will automatically improve. 

The other features of memory foam mattresses which make them such a good sleep investment and a popular choice among customers also need to be covered. These mattresses are hypoallergenic. They keep dust, mites, moulds, and other allergens away. Though this feature directly benefits those who have sensitive skin or sensitive eyes, it is an advantage for others as well. The air around us is polluted, especially if you live in a metropolitan. In such a case, it is important to ensure your sleep haven is free of dust. While buying an air purifier is a good idea, investing in a hypoallergenic mattress is even more important. A hypoallergenic mattress is a necessary investment for those with asthma or other breathing issues. Also, if you have a tendency to catch colds easily, you should buy a memory foam mattress.

To further enhance the memory foam mattress’ hypoallergenic feature, you can get a mattress protector. This can be removed and washed, as and when. These usually come with a zipper, so it’s even easier to put them on or remove them. These are waterproof and will prevent any liquid from seeping into the layers of your mattress. 

Most memory foam mattresses today come with cooling technology. Memory foam mattress brands incorporate this to deal with the problem of the mattress heating up during the night. Traditionally, memory foam mattresses would absorb the body heat of the sleeper and trap it. Now with the cooling technology, which could be gel memory foam or cooling crystals or open-cell structure, the mattresses absorb the body heat and circulate it. So you sleep comfortably through the night. 

These mattresses also offer motion isolation. So when you use the mattress with a sleeping partner, you will not be jostled out of sleep when your partner moves. The mattress will absorb the motion and isolate it completely. Therefore, you get a zero disturbance sleep on the mattress.
