What is the best orthopaedic mattress?
The answer depends on what you need from your mattress in the first place. Orthopaedic mattresses are a special type of mattress that is firmer than the standard and, in being so, cater more for those that suffer from back, joint and muscle pain in the morning, or simply those that prefer a more supportive sleeping position. Orthopaedic mattresses are a revolutionary technology that can 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, our range of luxurious hand-made orthopedia mattresses will gently cushion you as you drift off to sleep, giving you better support, allowing you to take the strain off your joints, back and muscles. This will mean you're much more likely to wake up feeling refreshed.

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 actually seem 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. If you purchased a slightly cheaper mattress, it will decline at a much faster rate, maybe within 2 to 3 years. It’s important to keep track of the life of your mattress in order to attain and keep a restful nights sleep.
Orthopaedic mattresses generally seem to be firm or extra firm. They are designed to provide you with the best support throughout the night. By having a firmer mattress, it allows your body weights to be more evenly distributed, relieving painful pressure points, and to help maintain a more natural spinal alignment. The primary pressures points we are referring too would be the neck, hips and the lower portions of your body. Always remember, that if your mattress is not designed to provide you with orthopaedic support, it will lead to increased pain, less sleep and increased stress levels.
