Mattress History

The term "mattress" comes from the Arabic (mara), which meaning "something thrown down" or "place where something is put down," and hence "mat, cushion." Europeans adopted the Arabic practice of sleeping on cushions on the floor during the Crusades, and the name materas ultimately made its way into Middle English via Romance languages. Around 77,000 years ago, the oldest known mattress was discovered.

The most common mattress marketed in North America today is an innerspring, although there is growing interest in all-foam and hybrid mattresses, which feature both an innerspring and high-end foams such as viscoelastic or latex in the comfort layers.

Is the choice of mattress important?

The four major indicators for measuring whether you have a "healthy sleep" are: adequate sleep, sufficient time, good quality, and high efficiency. It is easy to fall asleep without interruption, deep sleep, and tiredness when waking up, all of which are closely related to the quality of the mattress. A set of data shows that the average person turns over 40 to 60 times at night, and some of them turn over very large. If the width of the mattress is not enough or the hardness is not ergonomic, it is easy to cause sleep problems. "Soft" injury.

What are the common types of mattresses?

With the help of technology, mattress also developed to satisfy consumers unfulfilling need. There is various type of mattress consumers can find in the market. As a result, consumers need to first determine whether you want a spring mattress or a foam mattress (or both, also known as a hybrid mattress).


Spring mattresses

often known as innerspring mattresses, are beds that have an underlying support layer made up of dozens to hundreds of metal springs. To add to the comfort, they include softer plush material layers. Some people believe that spring beds are more supportive than foam mattresses, at least at first. This is especially true for those who are heavier and would benefit more from a coiled spring support system rather than a foam foundation.

Memory foam

comprises mostly of polyurethane with added chemicals to increase viscosity and density. It's also known as low-resilience polyurethane foam or "viscoelastic" polyurethane foam (LRPu). The foam bubbles, or 'cells,' are open, essentially forming a matrix for air to travel through. Memory foam with a higher density softens in response to body heat, allowing it to adapt to a warm body in only a few minutes. Newer foams may return to their original form faster.

Hybrid mattresses

Some mattresses offer hybrid compositions that include spring and foam layers. Hybrid mattresses can be a great option for those whose preferences are midway between what spring and foam mattresses have to offer.

About our gel memory foam mattress

Gel viscose or gel memory foam is composed of gel particles fused with viscose foam, which can reduce the amount of heat retained in the body, speed up the rebound time and help the mattress feel softer. It contains so-called "beads" and "gels," as a phase change material, which will achieve the required temperature stabilization or cooling effect by changing from a solid to a liquid "state" in the capsule. Changing the physical state can significantly change the element's performance Heat absorption performance, this is the reason why this technology is applied to memory foam.

Memory foam mattresses are denser than other types of foam mattresses, making them more supportive and heavier.

Memory foam's hardness (hard to soft) properties are utilized to assess comfort. The indentation force deflection (IFD) rating of the foam is used to determine its hardness. It is not, however, a full measure of how "soft" or "sturdy "something feels

The structure of our memory foam is open-cell. It responds to body temperature and weight by growing on the sleeper's body to alleviate pressure points and avoid pressure sores.

In warmer temperatures, memory foam mattresses can retain body heat, causing them to overheat. Gel memory foam, on the other hand, is cooler owing to its increased breathability.
