If you experience back problems an orthopaedic bed may be something to consider buying. With some 80% of the population experiencing back pain sometime in their lives, the design and features of an orthopaedic bed may help towards a pain-free and restful night’s sleep.
The key feature of spinal support beds are their pressure relieving and body contouring support. Designed to distribute body weight evenly across the surface of the bed to alleviate stress on the spine, orthopaedic beds help maintain proper posture. Not just a medical solution, orthopaedic beds can offer luxurious comfort to those that prefer the sensation of a firm support bed. The luxurious quality and spinal support offered by this type of bed appeals to a broader audience, whether they experience back problems or not.
There are a number of different types of orthopaedic beds available in the marketplace today. These include open coil, pocket sprung, and memory foam varieties, with sumptuous fillings such as latex and organic materials used in some models.
Open coil sprung orthopaedic beds are ideal if you are looking for firmer back support and you’re on a budget. Relatively inexpensive, these models still offer the spinal support required with the cushioning comfort of layers of quality upholstery fillings. The Respa Ortholite 4' Divan Bed, part of its Essential Collection, features Respatech Spring Technology for long lasting support, quality upholstery fillings for added comfort, and is finished in a Belgian Damask cover for that luxurious touch.
Pocket sprung orthopaedic beds are of a higher quality with each spring pocketed within a fabric casing responding to how your body moves while you sleep and a great solution if you and your partner differ in weight as they prevent roll-together. Approved by the International Chiropractors Association the King Koil Grand Support 4' Divan Bed combines 2000 Pocket Springs reinforced with visco memory foam, and also incorporates Tri-ChiroTM System for targeted Back Support, ChiroSpansTM which runs from edge to edge in the Critical Third Area and Tuff EdgeTM Supports to keep the mattress edge shape.
Over the years bed manufacturers have started to combine memory foam with spring technology in their products for added body contouring comfort. An increasingly popular choice, these beds can offer the firmness you require, with cushion comforting softness to prevent pressure point build-up. Kaymed’s Ortho Prestige 4' Divan Bed incorporates a deep layer of high density visco elastic with 1600 luxury pocket springs promoting a firmer feel bed with noticeable back support.
The Natural Sleep Nature's Finest 4' Divan Bed uses a naturally derived, "Green First" patented allergy barrier and sealing process to protect against allergens. Its special biofabrics also provide those who sleep on it with an additional layer of allergy protection. Combining a pocket sprung interior with foam encased walls, this hypoallergenic bed provides orthopaedic support and is available with either a fabric or leather base with matching headboard and a choice of drawer or ottoman storage.
