||: Orthopedic Mattresses
An orthopedic mattress (or orthopaedic mattress) is a mattress designed to support the joints, back and overall body. As its name suggests, an orthopaedic mattress has been influenced by the medical study of orthopaedics which focuses on disorders or deformities of the spine and joints. This high firm mattress give your back the extra support it needs for an acute back problem.
Mattress Maintenance And Care
Do give your new mattress time to air upon removal from its plastic packaging. Dispose of all plastic packaging as soon as possible. New mattresses may have a "new bed smell" that may take a couple weeks to dissipate.
Do carry your mattress flat on its side. Its easier to handle and youll be less likely to damage the mattress
o vacuum your mattress periodically. It prevents dust from setting in.
Do keep your bedding clean. We suggest using a mattress pad. A quality, washable mattress pad will help keep the mattress free from stains. If you're determined to tackle a stain, use mild soap with cold water and rub lightly. Don't ever soak a mattress or foundation.
Buying a mattress protector is a good idea, it would prevent and liquid from entering the mattress, and is ideal for parents who have children with bed-wetting issues.
Do rotate your mattress occasionally from head to toe, to prolong the comfort and support life. Body indentations are a normal occurrence in your new mattress and indicate that the upholstery layers are conforming to your bodys individual contours. Only body-indentations greater than 2 inches mean sagging.
Do retain the original bill as well as the guarantee card, to enable quick processing of warranty claims.
Do not use dry cleaning fluid of any type on your mattress. These chemicals will damage some of the construction materials.
Do not allow your mattress to get wet. Some of the upholstery materials may compress. Protect it from water or other liquids. In the event that your mattress becomes wet, absorb the wetness with tissues and dry the mattress indoors under a fan. Do not let anyone stand or jump on your mattress. It was not built for that type of weight distribution or abuse.
Do not bend your new mattress more than 20 degrees. Such treatment may damage the innerspring unit. Flex rather than bend the mattress when going through doorways.
What type of mattress to buy?
Based on our extensive sales experience, age group and the physical build play a vital role in mattress selection. We have designed a chart to help choose the mattress type.
Try this simple test to check for right support:
While lying on your back, slide the flat of your hand into the hollow of your back.
If your hand slides in very easily or theres a gap, the bed is too firm (lending pressure to your hips and shoulders).
If its really difficult to slide your hand in at all and you feel as if you are sinking into the mattress, then the bed is probably too soft for you. (Source:The Sleep Council)
Understand your back, and why back-pain is caused?
The spine (or the back) is an engineering marvel in itself and it is the main support system for the entire body. The spine is made up of vertebrae and the muscles which hold the vertebrae together. The spine acts as a flexible shock-absorber by distributing the mechanical stresses caused by movements.
Back problems are essentially caused due to bad posture of the spine. If the spine is not in the right posture there is a shift in pressure to a particular region of the spine rather than disbursement of the pressure throughout the spine. The area of the spine which has the increased pressure tends to hurt.
Why is sleeping posture so important?
Sleep is essentially the resting and healing period for the entire body including the spine. It is important that while we sleep the entire spine is relaxed and no pressure builds up in any particular region of the spine. This is where the mattress you choose plays a critical role. A good mattress should maintain the normal posture of the spine
As shown in the picture above mattress should neither be too soft nor hard
On a firm mattress the spine is forced to adjust to the flat surface of the mattress, and since the double s shape is not maintained, it results in discomfort and back pain. Among different mattress types, bonded foam tends to be the firmest, and should be used only with sufficient cushioning on top. Ideal cushioning is high density foam or best is memory foam.
A too soft mattress would allow the body to sink in, and not offer any support at all. Cotton mattresses are generally found to be soft, and tend to sink in the heavier areas, not offering any support at all.
Based on the research done in this area, it is now widely accepted that a medium firm mattress offers better back support than a fully firm mattress.
Also it is important to understand that this softness / firmness are relative to every individual person depending on their body type. What might seem soft for a hefty 120 kgs person, might feel hard for a petite 60 kgs person.
