A good alternative to an innerspring mattress is a foam mattress. Here is some more information.
If you are not sure which type of mattress is best for you, have a look at our detailed comparison of foam mattresses vs. innerspring mattresses.
Memory foam mattress (Visco mattress)
Visco mattresses have similar properties to cold foam mattresses. They are characterised by their memory imprint: When pressure is applied, the foam becomes softer and allows for the body to form an imprint on it. Due to its extremely high adaptability and pressure relief, Visco foam is used for orthopaedic purposes. The innerspring mattress, in comparison, has a completely different lying sensation; it is springy and not so adaptable. A very good Visco foam model is the Eve.
Another difference lies in the temperature regulation. Visco mattresses are temperature sensitive and you will sleep a little warmer. Innerspring mattresses, on the other hand, are completely temperature neutral and more breathable overall.

Cold foam mattress
A cold foam mattress is more adaptable than an innerspring mattress. Cold foam mattresses have good point elasticity - similar to good barrel spring mattresses - and high adaptability. They are therefore also recommended for orthopaedic problems.
The biggest difference here is temperature regulation. The innerspring mattress offers a cooler sleeping climate than the cold foam mattress. If you prefer to sleep a little warmer, a good quality cold foam mattress is a better choice. We would recommend the Emma mattress.

Latex mattresses also have a high point elasticity and offer high comfort. Latex mattresses made of high-quality natural latex have very good ventilation. The sleeping climate on a latex mattress is also cooler - similar to that of an innerspring mattress.
The feeling of lying on a latex mattress is slightly different. Latex mattresses tend to be slightly softer than innerspring mattresses.
