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.

What is an Air Mattress?
So if I say would you sleep on an Air Mattress, what is the first thing that comes to mind?
And I’m sure you wouldn’t dream of spending every night on one of these with your partner. To be honest me neither.
But my wife and I have been sleeping on an Air Mattress for the last 18 months. My wife has benefited from the relief it has given to her osteoarthritis in her hip, my back has never been better, we don’t suffer from roll together and the mattress is always at the right temperature due to its breathable top surface.
What sort of mattress is this? Innerspring, pocket spring or foam?
One of our customers has just had a Hip Op. She went 18 months sleeping on a Pearl Essence with much reduced pain. Before the Pearl Essence she would be at the chiropractor every month for therapy or acupuncture to relieve the pain. But having the Pearl Essence meant being able to adjust the mattress as and when needed to relieve pain.
While in Hospital having the Hip Op, she had an adjustable bed which was great but the mattress was a memory foam one and far too firm. So this just goes to show it’s not just the bed that has to adjust in fact the mattress is the prime thing. She tells me that a few pillows in the right place on an adjustable mattress are far more important than an adjustable bed with the wrong mattress.
Now back home in her own bed she has found she can adjust the mattress Up to a much firmer setting than before and is getting full nights sleep. She said it was the best investment they have ever made and no other mattress would have done what she has done. She has had the mattress medium down to soft and now medium to firm and all the time her husband has had the same setting. Dual adjustable is the only way to go as you never know what is around the corner.
So it’s Hip to have a dual adjustable mattress.
Adjustable mattresses have been around in the USA for close on 40 years and there’s been plenty of research and development over that time. Pearl Mattress have made them available to Europe. Now is a good time to think about looking at an adjustable mattress. With everyone living that much longer and much busier lifestyles. Why suffer for longer? The back strains and aches of a busy life can be repaired by getting a good nights sleep, it’s amazing how your body can recover if only you give it a chance.
A larger bed is always better as you’re not so likely to disturb each other in the night plus you then get an option to have individual chambers and personalise your sleep surface. Over the 5-10 year life of a mattress our bodies change, like the mattress we suffer wear and tear. This will mean there’s a good chance that buying the same mattress as last time may not be suitable for you and your partner today. With an adjustable lasting 20 years plus you will have no problem because you adjust to suit each sleeper separately.
There’s a mattress for all, with and without foam, with and without pillow top sleep surface. But the best mattress is our new Pearl Mattress Air-Cell – Revolutionary Eco-Friendly Air System.
As we started this article with “An adjustable is more practical,,,,,,,,,, This came from an article written in Mattresszine.comin 2011.
There is only one company doing a proper Air Mattress in Europe there’s no one to ask just how good they are except myself and the few who have been brave enough to buy.
Now Sleep like the dead have done an independent report to show what the best mattress is for bad backs that include a report for Air Mattresses.
Not only do they support you better than other types of mattress, there is less cross movement so you don’t disturb your partner when you move or get in and out of bed. They come in a box to make installing and moving them much easier. They don’t need turning. They are component mattresses so you only need to change a faulty part if anything should fail. If you spill a cup of coffee on the cover you can remove the cover and clean it or worse case change it.

Mattress Types & Pain Relief / Prevention
The graph below shows the pain-relieving ability of the different mattress types based on owner experience data. The types that are better at reducing pain (including back, hip and shoulder pain) are more supportive, less likely to sag and more likely to have good conformability. Keep in mind that the chart represents what is often but not always the case; a particular brand, model or individual mattress may go against these findings.
Airbeds tend to be effective in preventing or reducing pain, especially back pain. Sagging and loss of support is usually less of a problem with airbeds compared to most other bed types. The air chambers inside the airbed can provide good conformability as well as allow for adjustable firmness to suit personal preference.
