Folding Foam Mattresses
You don’t need to replace your whole mattress to experience the comfort of memory foam, and in fact, there are very good reasons why you probably shouldn’t. We’ll tell you about those reasons in a moment. An inexpensive and simple way to get the benefits of memory foam without any of the disadvantages is to buy a folding foam mattress topper from The Foam Booth.
Experience more comfortable sleep with a foam mattress topper
If you frequently are troubled by joint pain after waking, or you wake up not feeling refreshed by sleep, your mattress may be the culprit. As you sleep, a typical mattress absorbs only a small portion of the force exerted by your body weight. The rest of the force feeds back to you, creating stress and fatigue for your joints.
Even if you don’t notice any pain, you may be still affected by this problem. The discomfort your body experiences as you’re sleeping can disturb your sleep as your body does its best to correct what it interprets as a serious imbalance. So you wake up feeling like you’ve been jogging all night instead of sleeping.
The benefits of memory foam
Memory foam is an amazing material. It’s made from polyurethane, which has notable elasticity which is somewhat unique among all foams in existence today. It compresses rapidly and decompresses very slowly.
That property makes it unsuitable for a lot of purposes foam is used for, but extremely well suited to situations where it is subjected to compression for long durations. Situations like where someone is sleeping on top of it.
The high elasticity of the memory foam allows it to reshape perfectly to fit the natural contours of your body. This makes it easier to maintain correct spinal alignment when sleeping on your side and places less stress on your internals when sleeping on your back or front. In all sleeping positions, it reduces pressure for your shoulders, ribs, hips, knees, and ankles.
As a result, most people experience a more comfortable and refreshing sleep when they use memory foam. Many people find they experience a significant reduction in chronic pain which may have been troubling them for years. Many also report feeling more energetic and active during their waking hours.
Simply throwing away your existing mattress may not be the best answer
Reading all the aforementioned benefits of memory foam may have got your wondering if you should just throw out your old mattress and replace it with a memory foam mattress.
That would not be the most frugal decision, and unless your existing mattress is already old and worn out, it’s not really necessary. Buying a whole new mattress works out a lot more expensive than simply adding a folding foam mattress topper, and in most cases, the latter will be sufficient to meet your needs.
Of course, if your mattress has seen better days and clearly needs to be replaced, go ahead and replace it. We can help you with that, too, as we have an excellent selection of affordable high quality foam mattresses to choose from.
