If you’re investing in an adjustable bed for improved comfort and support, it only makes sense to give the mattress some thought. Normal sprung-pocket mattresses can work just fine, but latex mattresses come with some attractive benefits, especially if you suffer from mobility issues. Here are just a few reasons why you should match an adjustable bed with a latex mattress.
Latex comes from the sap of the rubber tree, so its elasticity should come as no surprise. When you lie on a latex mattress, you’ll feel it firm up all across your body as you sink in. Essentially, it adapts around you. This is why latex mattresses are frequently recommended by chiropractors, physiotherapists and osteopaths. They distribute pressure evenly across the whole body, making them perfect for people with musculoskeletal ailments or mobility issues.
Strong Air Circulation
Latex mattresses boast an open-cell structure, with pinhole patterns purposefully included during the manufacturing process. As a result, latex mattresses are very breathable. If mobility issues are likely to see you staying in bed for longer periods, latex should help things remain cool and dry.
Latex is a natural material, and yet it is still highly resistant to dust mites, mould, and bacteria. That’s a benefit worth considering whether you have mobility issues or not, but, again, it’s an important advantage if you’ll be spending lots of time in bed.
Latex mattresses are some of the most durable available. When you purchase one, you can expect it so last a very long time without losing support. This is great when you have an adjustable bed since moving the mattress up and down can see it wear out quickly. With a latex mattress, you won’t need to worry about having to buy a replacement in a few years’ time.
Motion Isolation Qualities
If you suffer from mobility problems, you probably move around a little more while you sleep than other people. At the same time, you’ll also probably be more discomforted if your partner moves around. Latex mattresses help solve this issue because of their motion isolation properties. If your partner is tossing and turning, you’ll barely notice.
