Why Buy a Memory Foam Mattress?
When you lie on a conventional sprung mattress, your own body weight pulls you down. The springs react by pushing back against you. The skin and blood vessels are caught in the middle, squeezed between the gravity force of your weight and the upwards force of the mattress. This causes pressure points which constrict circulation at the area of contact. The result is discomfort and even pain over time.
When you lie on a memory mattress however there is no air left in the cells to push back and cause discomfort. The foam moulds itself to the contours of the body, providing excellent support at the pressure points along the spine, neck, legs and elsewhere. This makes it possible to avoid some of the stresses on the skeletal and muscular systems of the body that are incurred during sleep on any other type of surface.
