What is the best orthopaedic mattress?
The best orthopaedic mattress depends on what you need from your mattress in the first place. Orthopaedic mattresses are firmer than standard mattresses to help those that suffer from regular back, joint and muscle pain in the morning – or are great for those that prefer a more supportive sleeping position.
Orthopaedic mattresses are a revolutionary technology that cleverly spread the weight of your body around, rather than allowing you to sink firmly in one place like you would on a soft mattress. This helps support your body by taking the strain off your joints, back or other pain points, allowing you to gently drift off to sleep.
So which mattress is best for you? Our mattresses can come in a variety of types and styles to suit every taste and budget. Get too warm on an evening? Try a mattress with Coolflex technology!

How do orthopaedic mattresses help you?
On average we spend around 26 years of our life in bed. When sleeping with aches and pains, this may make this feel a lot longer! Most sleepless nights can be attributed to improper support, forcing you to toss and turn throughout the night. In contrast, a restful night’s sleep can be improved with a better mattress, offering better support for your body.
How long should my mattress last?
If you can’t remember how old your mattress is, then it’s probably time to start thinking about buying a new one. Studies show that a mattress’s supportive quality starts to decline after 7 years, or even as soon as 2-3 years for some cheap mattresses. It’s important to keep track of the life of your mattress in order to attain and maintain a restful night’s sleep.
Orthopaedic mattresses are generally rated firm or extra firm. By having this additional firmness, it allows your body weight to be more event distributed across the mattress, relieving painful pressure points and maintain a natural spinal alignment.
If your mattress is not designed to provide you with orthopaedic support, it can lead to increased pain, less sleep and increased stress levels if you are a chronic sufferer of musculo-skeletal issues.
