What is an orthopedic mattress?
In Australia, there are no specific standards that differentiate an orthopedic mattress from a regular mattress. In such circumstances, it is easy to see people are paying more for a mattress that's not what it claims to be.
In a genuine orthopedic mattress like what we make here at Mattress Island, coils are 20 percent thicker than the regular mattresses. These types of mattresses are firm or very firm.
It suits those who experience regular back pain. The level of support that the mattress offers provides a rigid surface to help the body maintain good posture while sleeping. This type of mattress offers even weight distribution right across the bed.
The key feature of an orthopedic mattress is not how firm it is today, but how much it will maintain its firmness with regular use in the future.
