Newest Mattress Innovations

Next time you are at a mattress store in New Orleans there are a few new innovations in mattress technology you should check out. For years, mattresses were based on the same innerspring design, which limited a mattresses comfort, life, and usability in ways that are not issues with modern technology. So, let’s take a look at some changes that are bringing mattress technology into the 21st century.

Adjustable Beds

This is a big one; beds that allow you to adjust the bed to sit up and watch TV, or read. Maybe you need to keep your leg elevated for one reason or another? This makes it easier than stuffing a bunch of pillows under your foot to keep it elevated. Some of the top models also allow both sides to adjust individually. This means you can sit up without disturbing your partner. This is great for those sleepless nights when you just can’t shut your brain down and need to sit and read for a bit, but your partner is sleeping.

Construction Techniques

Traditionally, mattresses have been built on an innerspring design. This means there is a series of springs which are held together and topped with some type of padding, then wrapped up to contain everything. With modern techniques, springs have all but been eliminated. Modern mattresses use a variety of techniques to achieve proper firmness and support without causing pressure points, which can lead to aches and pains. Some of these techniques include the use of air filled supports to replace springs. These will compress better than springs and will not wear out and sag with age and wear like metal spring will. Most mattress manufacturers have also started using memory foam as opposed to cotton for their padding. Like the air supports memory foam will not sag or compress with use. This means it is going to be just as comfortable a year from now as it was the day you bought it.
