Valentines day is fast coming up and it takes two to make the perfect day. When you bought your mattress, she said the soft one was the best, you said the firm one was the best and so you settled on a medium soft mattress. Ever since then, she wakes with a numb arm and your back is so bad you have a job to get out of bed. This has caused a little stress in the bedroom department and in your life in general, she says “this is just not working for me”.
With Valentines Day coming up, you think this has to end and it’s time to get some romance back in your lives.
Research is what’s needed here. We need a mattress that gives us both a good nights sleep, a mattress to relieve her pressure points plus the best mattress for a bad back, one that has a good warranty, we need a King size mattress but getting it into our bedroom is not going to be easy, she found our foam mattress too warm so a mattress that breaths and it has to be good for our sex life.
Orthopedic Air Mattresses are generally found in Hospitals and Nursing homes.
These are made with individual air pockets with adjustable firmness and a special control mechanism. The industry started producing in the 1990’s self-adjusting air beds that can automatically change the pressure periodically and inflate, deflate several chambers alternately. This adjusting effect is to help reduce problems with decubitus ulcers (bed sores). These are very expensive and not found in the home.
Air Mattresses for the home.
There are several companies currently producing adjustable firmness air mattresses in America for the home. In some models and sizes, they allow independent adjustment of each side of the bed for comfort and firmness.
Adjustable air mattresses come in a variety of models from basic, no-frills ones that measure about 7″ in height, to high-profile, 15″ tall hybrids that contain several types of foam, pillow tops, and digital pumps with memory, for individual pressure settings.
Air bladder construction varies from a simple polyethylene bag to internally baffled, multiple chambers of latex (vulcanized rubber) or vinyl with bonded cotton exteriors. Mattresses have a layer of foam above the air chambers for added cushioning. The air chambers, top and sidewall foam all sit inside a removable two piece cover that looks like the outside of a standard innerspring mattress. These high-end luxury air beds are also known as soft-sided air beds.
For the first time orthopaedic air mattresses have become available in the UK
Dual chambers give you the comfort of two different sleep surfaces in one mattress and no noticeable joint in the middle. Some people having different daily routines may need a different sleep surface from day to day. A day spent in the garden will use different muscles to a day spent in the office at a desk.
No two couples are the same shape and size so we all require a different sleep surface.
These mattresses are now available in the UK and don’t cost as much as the Orthopedic mattress used in the medical trade.
These are for recreational use and not for long term use, they are cheap and ideal for camping. These have no Orthopedic properties and should only be used for short periods. Also available are the Air mattress for the home that are inflated with a small air pump for use when you need a spare bed. These are not suitable for long term use and like the camping bed has no Orthopedic properties.
