Best mattresses to match individual requirements
Best orthopaedic mattresses
We are sleep enthusiasts, not orthopaedists, and often the causes of neck and back pain are not necessarily related to the mattress used.
Stress, tension, a curvature of the spine, or muscular problems can cause orthopaedic problems.
Sometimes, an old and worn-out slatted frame may be the cause.
However, if your back or neck pain is caused - or worsened - by your mattress, then a good orthopaedic mattress can help by supporting your spine and keeping it aligned.
In order to have an orthopaedic effect, firmness, point elasticity, and pressure relief must be taken into account.
Best mattresses for sex
Some mattresses are better suited for sex than others.
Good stability, high point elasticity, motion transfer, and elasticity play a role.
Certain materials, such as latex foam, are particularly well suited.
Best soft mattresses
Many people prefer softer mattresses.
But a good soft mattress should still offer sufficient stability.
Special attention must be given to spinal alignment, and the formation of a hollow back needs to be avoided at all costs.
Best mattresses for people prone to allergies
Many people suffer from a dust mite allergy, and these little critters love to live in mattresses.
The best mattresses for people prone to allergies have the following characteristics:
- Removable cover that's machine-washable at 40°C - 60°C (wash every few weeks)
- Good breathability
- High density (so mites have no room inside)
- Cold foam mattresses are well-suited
- Mite-proof mattress encasings are recommended
Best mattresses for dogs
Your furry friend deserves a good rest and a good dog mattress can certainly do no harm.
A good dog mattress is bite-resistant, moisture-repellent, easy to clean, and easy to assemble.
