The average adult needs somewhere around eight hours of sleep every night to function properly. That’s one third of your life spent in bed. And if your mattress isn’t comfortable, it can be a miserable third indeed.
The mattress market is expanding well beyond the compression spring. These days you can get gel mattresses, organic mattresses, Tempurpedic mattresses, memory foam, and latex, in addition to the more traditional pillow-top mattresses and “bare” mattresses. While this may seem like a bewildering choice, the aim is all the same: to make sure you have a more restful night’s sleep.
Back support is crucial to a good night’s sleep. In Los Gatos latex mattress sales (as well as Tempurpedic mattresses and gel mattresses) indicate that people are venturing away from the old box-spring-and-mattress combo in order to relieve some of the problems inherent to the setup. Where traditional mattresses only support certain parts of the back, alternative mattresses provide support along the entire spinal column, reducing the strain on any one section and helping sleepers rest a little more easily, and with less tossing and turning.
Over 60% of American sleepers have trouble sleeping at least twice every week. The effects of this condition can be felt in every corner of our civilization, from our family lives to our workplace demeanor to our ability to drive a car without becoming enraged. So developing a mattress that alleviates this problem is not just a commercial impulse—it’s a national necessity! For more about this, go here.
