Nowadays, the market is flooded with different types and varieties of mattresses. The most popular Types of Mattress are –
♦ Memory Foam Type Mattresses – Highly adjustable and soft, memory foam technology was first introduced by NASA for flight seats (viscoelastic foam). A memory foam mattress bed provides comfort and support along with motion transfer which is at a very low level.Coil shifting problem is absent in this mattress.
The main disadvantage of this mattress is that it has the tendency to trap and retain heat during hot summer months in particular.
♦ Innerspring Mattresses – This type of mattress has undergone a lot of changes over the past few decades.Since innerspring mattresses provide limited durability and comfort combined with poor motion transfer, a majority prefer to buy memory foam beds.
The best way to identify top quality innerspring mattress is to check the coil design and topper material.
♦ Latex Mattresses – 100% natural mattresses (latex) are given more prominence over latex synthetic mattresses.This type of mattress can be combined(natural + synthetic) with synthetic or natural based rubber.Memory foam and innerspring mattresses are more popular than latex mattresses.
