A mattress is typically a large, typically rectangular pad for resting a sleeping individual. It is made to be used in conjunction with a box spring, or as a separate bed frame element of some kind as part of the overall bed. Mattress pads are made from a number of different materials including memory foam, latex, cotton, jute, fleece, and other synthetic or natural fibers. Typically, a mattress pad is located between the mattress and box spring or on the outside edge of the bed, either under the mattress or on the floor near where one will sleep.
In recent years memory foam mattresses have gained increased popularity among those seeking to add a comfortable sleep surface to their home. Memory foam is made from visco-elastic foam that conforms to your individual body shape and provides support for a long and healthy sleep. It allows the sleep surface to mold to the shape of the individual body allowing the sleeper to get a more comfortable and restful night's sleep. These types of mattresses can be a little bit more expensive than other types of mattress, but often yield much better sleep because they do not allow for the standard-shaped conventional mattresses. Many new mattress types offer adjustable pressure points for those seeking to get a more comfortable sleep.
The greatest advantage memory foam has over traditional mattresses and box springs is that it supports the sleeper in all four corners of the body allowing for much greater comfort and a better night's rest. These types of beds provide an increased level of comfort and support for the back and provide support for many painful areas of the body such as joints, tendons, and the spine. Those suffering from chronic back pain have also found relief from memory foam mattresses because they encourage proper spinal alignment which decreases pressure on the spine and relieves chronic pain. For those who may be experiencing neck pain memory foam has also been known to help reduce this pain.
