Orthopaedic Mattresses are a type of Mattress that are specially made to support the whole body, with attention to the joints and back. Orthopaedic Mattresses are commonly used by people suffering with back pain or any other physical pains or debilitations, although they can be used by people who would just like a more supportive and firmer mattress.
It is important keep in mind that there is no single industry specification for Orthopaedic Mattresses. In general, an Orthopaedic Mattress will be firmer, and be designed to help support the whole body, whether with certain fillings, memory foam, or spring system.
When shopping for an Orthopaedic Mattress, it is important to not reply to heavily on the "Orthopaedic" title, as with all mattress it varies and what works for one person might not be as effective for another- the main two things to consider is firmness and support.
Memory Foam is commonly used in Orthopaedic mattresses, due to its supportive and moulding qualities. This can be beneficial for many people, as it provides encapsulating warmth to the joints and muscles, for optimum recovery conditions. Pocket Springs are also ideal, as they provide a higher level of support to each section of the body.
