Bliss for those who want great comfort without compromising on support for their body. Before we get into why buying a memory foam mattress is a better choice for a comfortable sleep, it is very important to understand how memory foam in general works and how it offers better comfort and support when compared with other types of mattresses available in India.
So, what exactly is Memory Foam; memory foam was invented by NASA for their astronauts to offer them a comfortable space journey. The memory foam was developed to withstand the gravitational force and the pressure exerted on the seat. It is viscoelastic in nature that is it can change its shapes when the pressure is applied and it distributes the pressure across the seating/sleeping surface.
Now we know why Memory Foam was invented and its purpose. So, why use memory foam in a mattress, and how does it helps with comfort and support? As mentioned earlier, memory foam can change its shape when pressure and heat are applied. It contours to the shape of the body or object and distributes the pressure. This property makes memory foam mattresses extremely comfortable and helpful in relieving pressure from pressure points. When we sleep, the body produces heat, which is transferred to the memory foam layer in the mattress. When coupled with the body’s weight, memory foam mattresses start to change their shape and contour to the body and help align the spine in a natural S-Shape.
Memory Foam is always used in the top layers of a mattress as this helps in making the mattress comfortable.
Finding the right type of memory foam mattress is important when looking to experience the best sleep. It is impossible to make a mattress with only memory foam because of its viscoelastic nature as it will compress itself due to pressure and body heat. That is why support or a core layer is always added to make memory foam mattresses more supportive.
There are mostly 2 types of memory foam mattresses;
1. Foam and Memory Foam Mattress: In this type of memory foam mattress, the support layer is usually made up of high-density hard foam. The foam used in the support layer can be a bonded foam or HR foam. The purpose of using a hard foam below the memory foam layer is to support the body.
2. Innerspring and Memory Foam Mattress: In this type of mattress, the support layer is made up of a Bonnell spring or Pocket spring system. To make the mattress more supportive, the spring systems are double heat tempered, making them firmer and sturdier.
Generally, memory foam mattresses have medium firmness, however, a change in their density and thickness can make them medium soft to medium hard. A good memory foam mattress will always have a high-density thick layer of HR Foam or a bonded foam. In the case of an innerspring mattress, the core layer for the support function can be of a Bonnell spring system or a pocket spring system. Between the comfort layer and a support layer of an innerspring mattress, an HR foam or PU foam is always used to make the memory foam mattress more comfortable and supportive.
a. Pressure Relieving: Because of its viscoelastic nature, memory foam absorbs the pressure exerted by the body and distributes it across the surface. This means it exerts little to no pressure on the body.
b. Body Contouring: When we sleep and the body emits heat, memory foam mattresses start becoming soft and contouring to the body.
c. Motion Isolation: Memory foam can absorb pressure and has a very low ball resiliency, which means one doesn’t feel the motion on the other side of the mattress.
d. Hypoallergenic: Memory foam is made from polyurethane with a much denser composition, which means it doesn’t accumulate dust and mites. This property makes the memory foam mattresses hypoallergenic in nature and best suited for people with allergies.
e. Orthopedic Advantages: Most doctors around the globe recommend medium-firm mattresses as they are comfortable and supportive. This is why memory foam is always used in the comfort layer of most orthopedic memory foam mattresses.

Four keys to keep in mind are support, comfort, space and matching sets. The mattress that's right for you will keep your spine in proper alignment – how your spine is when it's in good standing posture – supporting your body and cradling it along its curves. The right mattress will also be comfortable for your body. Keep in mind that your comfort preferences are likely to change as you age. Make sure the mattress provides enough space for easy, free movement. Couples should sleep on a queen or king-size mattress. And keep in mind that a mattress and foundation are designed to work together. Buy them as a set and get the most out of your investment in yourself.

A box spring is typically made of springs with a wooden frame then covered in a cloth material. When you purchase a traditional innerspring mattress, it would lay on top of the box spring. A foundation however is typically made with a nail-free design, heavy duty boards to provide more support for a heavier memory foam or latex foam mattress. A good bed foundation can be just as important to a good, healthy night sleep as the mattress that it supports. The foundation will make sure that your mattress is on a completely flat surface elevated to a proper level. This will make it easier to get into and out of bed and allow you to lie in a position that will not injure your back. If your bed foundation is adjustable then it will also allow you to sit up in a great position to watch television or read. The bed foundation will also help extend the life of your mattress. If a mattress is placed directly onto the floor or onto wooden slats they will not take any of the pressure off of the mattress and it will wear out rapidly. A foundation, however, absorbs some of the pressure and shock of your body weight and will keep the mattress in great condition for longer. Foundations have been shown to add years of life onto a mattress before a new one is needed.
