Mattresses and mattress technology is continually evolving due to consumer feedback and response. Memory foam mattresses, which have been available since the early part of the 1980s, are one of the biggest technology advances in mattresses and mattress design. These memory foam mattress options are considered one of the best all round mattresses for people with all types of sleep problems or that sleep in virtually any position.

The Heat Problem with Memory Foam

However, some people find that the very nature of the memory foam mattress creates a sleep problem. These mattresses all contour or conform to your body and literally comfort you in their softer top layers. This provides a lot of support and a very comfortable neutral sleep position for the spine, but it also pushes the dense foam material around your body. For those that are “hot sleepers” the dense foam can make the situation worse.

There is the option to use a separate topper for the memory foam mattress, which was the only option until a few years ago. Now you have yet another option in the form of a gel foam mattress.

Comfortable Sleep

Gel foam is very similar in comfort, sleep wise, to a traditional memory foam mattress. It can have a thicker or thinner top layer that will provide more contouring or less, which is really a personal preference issue. It does have those gel beads distributed throughout the foam, providing additional support. Most people find that they don’t push into the surface of the gel foam mattress as far as they do in a comparable memory foam, which allows more air circulation and a cooler sleep.

Like original memory foam, gel foam mattress styles, in any size are going to resist any type of motion or movement transfer. This means that if there is more than one person in the bed the movement of that person will not transfer through the entire mattress.

Not all companies and brands make gel foam mattress models. Ideally look for these mattresses at a specialized mattress store to provide you with the best possible range of selection. Ask questions and get to know the benefits of this mattress to see if it is right for you. Browse the site mdserta.com for more information.
