Notable Gel Mattresses
Developing in popularity and prominence is the gel mattress. Combining the latest bed technology gel-infused or gel memory foam mattresses generally combine gel with traditional mattress fillings including innerspring constructions, memory foam and natural upholstery. A flexible material, gel may be infused or in some instances may be contained within a layer to create a different feel to that of the traditional memory foam sleep products.
Gel mattresses are unique in their heat sensitive properties. Drawing heat away from the mattress surface a gel mattress will help keep the temperature balanced all night long for a comfortable night’s sleep. Gel is similar to memory foam in that it’s a viscoelastic material. Helping to reduce pressure point build-up, gel mattresses will relieve any back, shoulder or hip pains experienced when sleeping. Gel beads help give the mattress more strength, preventing you from sinking into the bed too deeply.
Ideal for those that suffer from allergies, gel mattresses are antimicrobial and hypoallergenic. What’s more, gel memory foam mattresses are very durable making them a sound investment.
