Thin orthopedic mattresses
Traditional orthopedic mattresses have long gained popularity among consumers. To date, the old Soviet mattresses ousted from all beds of the country and replaced with orthopedic. However, these mattresses have several disadvantages: it is high price, lack of compactness and inconvenience in transportation (such a mattress cannot be folded, removed, moved from one room to another). Today thin orthopedic mattresses are very popular.
The main secret of sound sleep
Thin orthopedic mattresses are products up to 10 cm high with various fillings.
They have a number of advantages over their predecessors (traditional thick orthopedic mattresses), namely:
- reasonable price (the cost of a thin orthopedic mattress is much lower than that of traditional thick products);
- lightness and compactness;
- ease of care (the mattress itself is periodically enough to dislodge from dust, and the cover is washable);
- in the composition of the fillers of this product are natural ingredients that will not cause an allergic reaction in the sleeper;
- due to the large choice of sizes, you can choose the appropriate option, taking into account the dimensions of the bed (also for a sofa or non-standard bed, you can make a thin orthopedic mattress to order);
- makes any bed more comfortable.
All sofas consist of two or more parts, on the folds of which gradually wide enough slits appear, and the filler is knocked off. You can’t call such a bed comfortable, and guests who are put to sleep on such a sofa will wake up tired in the morning. However, the situation may change if the house has thin orthopedic mattress - you just need to put it on top of the sofa and fix it. The bed is leveled, all bumps and dents disappear, and guests feel great in the morning.
However, it is worth considering the disadvantages that these little helpers have:
- It is recommended to use them only during sleep, this is the main disadvantage.This product will need to be folded daily and cleaned, and in the evening it will be laid out again and fixed on a bed.
- Some models do not have the ability to roll up the roll, as they have a hard filler - natural coconut fiber.
As you can see, the disadvantages of a thin orthopedic mattress are much less than advantages.
In the manufacture of thin orthopedic mattresses, manufacturers attach great importance to the advice of orthopedic physicians, and also listen to the feedback from consumers.
These products are distinguished depending on the quality of the material from which the product is upholstered, as well as on the quality of the filler.
Mattresses, which include natural materials and fillers, are more expensive, but they have no equal in quality. They will serve longer and much better perform orthopedic functions - in comparison with their cheaper counterparts.
If synthetic fillers are part of thin orthopedic mattresses, they will be significantly inferior not only in cost, but also in quality.
Such products wear out faster, a sufficient orthopedic effect is not ensured.
It is necessary to learn more about all possible fillers of a thin orthopedic mattress and determine their positive and negative sides.
- Coconut fiber is one of the best fillers available. Its advantages are that this filler has hypoallergenic and pronounced orthopedic properties. It can even be used to equip an infant's bed.
Coconut fiber is quickly ventilated, providing good ventilation, does not deteriorate and does not rot in a wet environment. Such material will serve its owners for many years, saving them from many problems associated with comfort during sleep and preservation of health. Among the disadvantages can be identified a high price and the inability to fold or twist the mattress roll.
- Biokokos - analogue of the previous filler. However, the main difference from it is that in this filler, coconut fibers are held together by a synthetic hypoallergenic fiber - holofiber. This difference can significantly reduce the cost of the finished product and slightly soften its design.For the rest of the characteristics of the properties of this filler are similar to the features of the previous model.
- Natural latex is another wonderful natural filler that is simply perfect in all respects. Like coconut fiber, natural latex is remarkable for its remarkable orthopedic properties, does not rot, is well ventilated and practically does not require any efforts to care for such a thin orthopedic mattress.
It is quite light, has the properties of flexibility and compactness. Hypoallergenic, can be used for daily sleep. A mattress with such a filler will be very comfortable and comfortable, as it takes the shape of the body of a sleeping person. There is only one drawback to this model - the high price.
- Synthetic latex - it is a foam material that almost completely imitates the properties of natural latex. Due to its synthetic origin and fragility, it has a rather low cost. It has a hard base, thanks to which it copes well with its orthopedic duties.
- Streutoplast - material that is used as a filler for a thin orthopedic mattress.It is durable enough. Its rigidity allows you to cope well with the main task. A great option in terms of price / quality ratio, since its cost is much lower than that of mattresses made using natural fillers.
- Polyurethane foam - the sales leader among synthetic fillers of thin orthopedic mattresses, since these models have the lowest possible price. However, the mattress with polyurethane foam wears out quickly, sags in places of pressure. As advantages, it is possible to highlight the good orthopedic properties of this model (due to the use of reinforced foam rubber), as well as hypoallergenicity, convenience, resistance to moisture.
- Memoriform - “memory foam”. Synthetic filler memoriform perfectly remembers and takes the shape of the body of the sleeper and has a supporting effect. It is one of the softest fillers of thin orthopedic mattresses.
Memoriform will last a long time, but it has a significant disadvantage - a high price. Memoryform has a low breathability, so the mattress will quickly heat up.
There are many fillers for thin orthopedic mattresses, but it is more profitable to purchase a mattress with a combined filler. Many manufacturers make and such. Thanks to the combined filler, the user will decide for himself what degree of rigidity to choose for his bed - for an even more pleasant sleep.
