Back Pain and Mattresses: Is Memory Foam your Best Bet?

Back pain.  Ugh, is there anything worse than unexplained back pain that just goes on for months?  (I know, there are a lot of things like cancer, paralysis, PTSD, Huntington’s Disease etc., but stay with me here).

I woke up a few days ago with a pinched nerve in my back, which is keeping me from moving my head, lifting my arm, and, according to my family, it’s also keeping me from being even slightly pleasant to be around.  I don’t know what I did to it, I sleep on a great mattress, and I don’t remember lifting anything that was especially cumbersome.  There was no crack, no pop, no immediate stabbing pain.  I just woke up and tried to get out of bed, and saw stars.

But this post really isn’t about me; it’s about you (as in the 248 million people that have had back pain in America).  My own back pain just got me thinking about what we are all doing to ourselves, and how intricate (and delicate) our bodies are.  I was forwarded this awesome infographic from www.top-nursing-programs.com a while ago, and my own recent back agony brought it back to memory.  Check it out:

Back Pain and Memory Foam

There is a ton of great info listed here which everyone can use, regardless of current back pain or not.  I realized that I am not sitting right, and while my sleeping posture is perfect (of course), I should probably beef up my core with Pilates, and get back into yoga.  When I can move my neck, of course.

Now we all know that I can’t actually make it all the way through a post without bringing up mattresses, since this is a mattress blog and all.  I have been scouring the internet for the past few days doing research on a different but related article about herniated discs, and would like to share that info, since I really believe that it applies to all back pain:

  • Try memory foam.  It fills in your lumbar region, you will toss and turn less, your circulation will improve, and it helps keep your body in its natural, aligned position.  If you’re concerned about getting out of it, try a Comforpedic (which is quicker reaction than most others), in a firmer feel such as the Advanced Rest.
  • Adjustable beds aren’t just for hospitals.  You can lift your feet a little and take the pressure off of your lower back.  We usually pair ours with memory foam beds, but you can use any Beautyrest, latex, or most air mattresses.
  • If you MUST have an innerspring, go for medium firm with excellent lumbar support, like a Beautyrest Luxury Firm, or maybe an iMattress XS1.

Remember, I am not a doctor, and should not be considered an expert in back pain or what may be the best for your back.  However, I can tell you that I sleep on memory foam, and usually have no back pain whatsoever.

Another big thanks to www.top-nursing-programs.com for the infographic, and for showing me how my computer hunched ways may be further damaging my back.  Keep ‘em coming!

Bed Recommendation for Scleroderma Sufferers

If you suffer from scleroderma, then you know that there are a bevy of often misdiagnosed symptoms, as well as so many complications that it’s hard to keep them all under control.  I’ve written articles about fibromyalgia, arthritis, and sciatica, but have never tackled a bed recommendation for such an intricate and difficult problem as this disease.

scleroderma bed recommendationThis all came about when a customer inquired about a bed recommendation for someone who suffered from scleroderma.  I did some research online, but found the most information by snooping around on the forums, and made a list of what people recommended the most.  Remember, I am not a doctor, and I don’t have this disease, this information is compiled from online posts of people who do suffer from the pain and complications of scleroderma.  These recommendations may, or may not work for you, but they’re worth a try.

  • The easiest problem to ease is GERD.  Acid can be kept in the stomach by elevating the head of the bed, and sleeping at an incline.  Of course, adjustable beds are great for this, they are recommended for acid reflux problems.  A great option is the Pro-Motion base, which has all of the movement functionality, but not any of the expensive extras.  However, as many contributors noted, if you need a pretty steep angle, and you’re a side sleeper, this configuration is not going to work.  Another great option is a wedge pillow, and there are longer versions that can be comfortable for side sleepers.  My bed recommendation is to use one with a memory foam bed (such as a Spirit Sleep or Comforpedic), because it will form to the wedge better, and not slip.Comforpedic: bed recommendation for scleroderma
  • Similarly, if it’s breathing difficulty that needs to be addressed, due to decreased lung function, sleeping at an angle can assist with this as well.  Again, adjustable beds are great, or the wedge option can work as well.
  • Finally, for this customer, the problem was pain.  Unexplained (and undiagnosable) bone pain can be the worst symptom to address.  The issue with this problem is that everyone will be comfortable on different beds, and one size does not fit all.  However, it makes sense to me that the goal of the bed recommendation should be pressure relief.  You can get good pressure relief from a thick pillow top (check out a Bernardsville Plush Pillow Top), or great pressure relief from a softer memory foam bed (the Balanced Days is an idea).  Another benefit of these softer mattresses and memory foam beds is that they increase circulation, which can help with stiffness and pain in the extremities.

It must be intensely frustrating to not only feel terrible and have it misdiagnosed, but then to find out that there is no tried and true treatment, and no cure.  You never realize how important comfort is until you don’t have it anymore.

One forum contributor said that they have been sleeping for the past two years in two hour intervals, throughout the day.  While this isn’t optimal (or possible for some with regular out of the home jobs), it is a sustainable way to get your rest.  The key is to take the time to find the most comfortable bed for you, and not to be concerned about price (you will feel better and can possibly get better quicker when you’re getting quality rest).

On a last note, wherever you decide to buy your mattress, wedge, or other option, make sure that they have an exchange or return policy.  We have both, and are more than willing to work extensively with any customer who has chronic pain like scleroderma.  Good luck, feel better, and if we can help, let us know.

Why Comforpedic is considered as the Healthiest Mattress?

What’s the Science Behind BeautySleep?

1_1Science Behind BeautySleep. Simmons is known for their groundbreaking innovations, for being an industry leader in technology.  Just this year, the Beautyrest brand and the Comforpedic brand both got makeovers, with new features, benefits, and a great story.  But the brand that usually gets left out is BeautySleep, the less expensive cousin to the Beautyrest.

While in the past, BeautySleep was more of a traditional mattress, with an inner-locking spring system, border wire edge support, and so-so padding layers, this year is different.  BeautySleep may not be lighting the city on fire with new technology, but they have a new look and a new philosophy.  They have received the best hand-me-downs from Beautyrest, and they are making it work for them.

  • 700 Series Coil Technology – This is the new BeautySleep coil system.  Now, most of the line-up has individually wrapped coils, long the standard for Beautyrest.  Why is this good science?  Because pocketed coils offer superior back support, conform to curves better to offer better pressure relief, and provide individual support for each person sleeping on them.  They also localize motion, to keep partners sleeping undisturbed.  This is the first year that BeautySleep has received this huge upgrade, and it just adds more value to their line-up.
  • Foam Encased Edge Support System – Years ago, foam encased edge support was only for top of the line beds, and you paid for it dearly.  Now, every single bed in the BeautySleep line-up has this type of edge support.  Mattresses that are foam encased feel larger than others with more traditional edge support systems, because there is more usable space in the mattress.  The sleeper can lie right on the edge of the bed without being tipped off.  Also, this type of edge support makes sitting on the bed both comfortable, and less likely to dip the side of the bed.  Finally, foam encased beds have a more expensive look; they are less likely to be misshapen due to coils popping through the side wall.  Again, an expensive bed feature, in a value line-up.

  • Gel Touch Foam – The new material in the bedding industry is gel, and while with most brands it is exclusive to their top of the line beds, BeautySleep has put it in a few of their models.  What is the science behind this feature?  GelTouch foam is soft and conforming, and reduces pressure points.  It is also a cooling fiber, and it provides more air circulation for a more comfortable sleep.
  • Stretch Knit Fabric – Select models of BeautySleep mattresses have a knit fabric cover.  This is great for two reasons: (1) since this cover stretches, it further localizes motion and conforms to the body well, and (2) it is a natural material, and promotes airflow and comfortable sleeping temperature.  Like with the other features, in the past, stretch knit fabrics were reserved for more expensive mattresses, but BeautySleep puts this cover on beds starting at $499.

The Simmons BeautySleep mattresses have benefited from research and innovation performed by Beautyrest.  They have upgraded features such as individually pocketed coils, foam encased edge support, Gel Touch foam, and stretch knit fabrics to put them head and shoulders above the closest competition in their price range.

Do Your Homework Before Selecting Your Mattress

There are hundreds of manufacturers of beds out there, and literally thousands of models to choose from.  How are you supposed to find the one that’s right for you, at the right price?  It’s like searching for a needle in a haystack.

Make it easier on yourself by doing your homework.

What I mean by this is that you don’t have to go in blind and uninformed.

You can do a ton of research on the internet, and eliminate at least three quarters of the choices out there.  What research?  I don’t know, go to legitimate review websites like www.sleeplikethedead.com, read my blogs, go to manufacturer’s websites, check out some products online.  The only thing that I don’t recommend doing is reading random customer reviews, because they are always negative, and don’t accurately portray the pros and cons of the beds.

Do Your Homework Before Selecting Your Mattress

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  1. How do you and your partner sleep?  On your back, side, stomach?  Back and stomach sleepers need a firmer feel, so no pillow tops or euro tops.  Side sleepers need something softer, so no extra firm or luxury firms.  Do you both sleep differently, and can’t agree on a feel?  Check out memory foam.  Also note that some brands cater to different sleeping styles – for example, Beautyrest Recharge is great for side sleepers because of the individually pocketed coil system.
  2. How long do you realistically want this bed to last?  Do you really want to go out and shop again in four years?  Or do you want ten to fifteen out of it?  This correlates directly to the quality of the bed, and really, how much you pay for it.  Don’t expect a $200, or even a $500 mattress to last for ten years.  It’s just not going to happen.
  3. What is your budget?  Don’t say as cheap as possible, because this is an important purchase that you’ll have for a long time, and it will affect your health.  That being said, get a number in your head that you’re aiming for.  Tell this to the salesperson, so they don’t waste time introducing beds that are either above or below your price range.
  4. Do you sleep hot or cold?  Memory foam beds may be warmer, softer beds sleep warmer than firmer beds do.
  5. Do you have back problems?  Some beds offer extra back support, like King Koil mattresses.  Also, memory foam and latex are great for people with back pain, arthritis, etc.

    Selecting Your Mattress

When you call in to the online retailer, or walk into the store, don’t expect the salesperson to read your mind.  Outline to them exactly what you’re looking for, and improve your chances of coming out with the right bed for you!

T_Do_Allergies_Cause_Asthma_1When it comes to allergies, there are many situations and exposures that are out of your control.  Thankfully, your mattress doesn’t need to be one of them.

whosinyour
Any traditional innerspring mattress is a haven for thousands of tiny dust mites.  According to Environment, Health, and Safety Online, while these dust mites themselves are not dangerous, toxic, or parasitic, their excrement is.  There is a protein in dust mite poop that is highly allergenic, and is what people are allergic to when they are allergic to “dust”.  Additionally, materials in traditional mattresses can trap and hold allergens, such as pollen and pet dander.  For those of us who suffer from allergies and asthma, just going to bed can become a dreaded experience of medication, tissues, and sneezing.

Memory foam mattresses, also known as “visco-elastic” mattresses, are a great alternative to the traditional innerspring beds.  According to an article by Kurt Hardesty on Amazines.com, due to the way that memory foam is composed, it is not penetrable by dust mites.  Basically, dust mites cannot live in memory foam.  Additionally, many memory foam beds have removable covers, which trap pollen, dander, and those dust mites directly on the cover, to be washed out in your washing machine.  If you have a high quality memory foam bed, such as Comforpedic, you may want to put a mattress protector over the existing cover, to further protect the mattress, as well as your health.

memory foam plillows

In addition to dust mites, pollen, and pet dander allergies, Comforpedic mattresses have no natural allergens in them, such as down or latex, to irritate the sleeper.  They are also resistant to mold, mildew, and bacteria.  Comforpedic mattresses are the most hypoallergenic mattress available.

Another option to consider when trying eliminating allergens in bedding is your pillow.  Using a down or fiber pillow may be exacerbating your condition.  These materials are attractive to dust mites, since they are next to your skin, and provide the warm, humid environment that they prefer.  Think about changing out your regular pillows for memory foam pillows.  In addition to being dust mite resistant, Kurt Hardesty comments that they don’t get lumpy or ball up, they maintain their shape, loft, and support.

If you suffer from allergies or asthma, changing your bedding to Comforpedic memory foam may be a solution to better, sneeze free sleeping.

Are Comforpedic Mattresses Good for Sex?

Comforpedic Mattresses Good for Sex? For many couples out searching for a new mattress, they are not only testing the sleeping comfort of the bed, but also evaluating the suitability of the bed for sex.  Most sleep doctors recommend that you only use your bed for two things: sleep and sex, so it makes sense that carnal activities should factor into the equation.  Instead of embarrassing yourself at the mattress store, or guessing when purchasing a mattress online, we recommend relying on www.sleeplikethedead.com, the best unbiased mattress review and ratings site, to lead the way.  They have gathered information from 370 people, regarding their experiences with their own mattresses, and have compiled them into a comprehensive ratings list.  Here are their findings on general memory foam mattresses:

  • Active Sex Friendly – D+

This rating rates how easy the bed is to move around on, and change positions.  Memory foam on the whole gets a D+, mainly due to the participant sinking into the mattress, and the slow reaction of the foam.

  • Bouncy – F

Suffice to say, memory foam mattresses aren’t going to help you along at all.

purchasing a mattress online

  • Allows Discretion – A

This grade means that memory foam is excellent at keeping your private activities private.  The mattress is quiet, and absorbs the energy being exerted on top of it.

  • Durable – B

Memory foam is excellent at not showing the wear and tear of frequent use, both sleeping and otherwise.  It maintains its support and comfort.

  • Allows Many Positions – C

This category refers to the possibility of different comfortable positions on the bed.

While memory foam does relieve all pressure, it is difficult to move on, giving it the average grade.

  • 2005_2_16_bedroom bedford (8)Comfortable – B+

Memory foam mattresses allow a position to be kept for a long time without pain or discomfort.  This is due to the pressure relieving properties of the foam.

  • Allows Faster Climax – B

This may, or may not be a benefit!  This category is grading the mattress’ ability to provide “traction” for the participant.  The idea behind this is that this “traction” decreased the amount of energy being used for the movement, and can result in quicker climax, without all the cardio.

  • Whole Bed Suitable – A-

This is an overall grade of worthiness.  Not a bad grade for memory foam!

The above ratings are for memory foam as a whole, but Comforpedic is different from regular memory foam.  Their AirCool memory foam formula reacts and recovers quicker than regular memory foam does, making it easier to move and change positions on.  Due to this, Comforpedic gets better marks from www.sleeplikethedead.com than other memory foam brands that are not as quick to react.

Another aspect to consider is which Comforpedic you are interested in.  Commons sense would dictate that the softer the mattress, the deeper that you will sink into it and the harder it will be to move.  Additionally, if partners are of drastically different weights, the heavier person will sink in further, and things may not line up as they should.  If this is the case for you, or you are concerned about exerting too much energy trying to move, a firmer Comforpedic might be ideal for you.

Which ever Comforpedic mattress you choose, know that you can be comfortable and supported while sleeping, and it won’t hamper your sex life!

Comforpedic Models Explained

The new Comforpedic line-up has been out for a few months now, and we’ve heard nothing but good reviews from customers.  In case you still haven’t purchased yours, here are some details on each bed, so you can choose which is right for you!  We’ll start with the most basic, and move on from there:

Comforpedic Balanced Days

  1. Comforpedic Advanced Rest – This is the firmest of all of the new Comforpedic beds.  It is 9.5” in height, and can take regular sheets.  This bed starts with 1” of AirCool Memory Foam with TruTemp gel.  This layer is basically open cell memory foam, with gel globules suspended throughout the foam.  The gel absorbs excess heat, and then releases it when the sleeper moves.  This new technology allows 2.8 times quicker heat dissipation than other brands.  The AirCool memory foam cradles the body and relieves pressure to give the sleeper natural spinal alignment.  This is followed by firm comfort foam, which is what gives this bed it’s firmness, and then another 2” of AirCool memory foam.  The core of this bed, like all Comforpedic mattresses, is made of 2” Independent Support Technology, which is a foam layer that has sculpted cushions to react individually to the support and pressure relief needs of your body.  This layer also promotes air flow throughout the mattress.  The core also contains a 3.5” AirCool Transflexion Core, which provides ventilated support for both the comfort foams, and the sleeper.  The edge support on the Advanced Rest is ventilated on all sides for improved air flow.  The Advanced Rest is best for back and stomach sleepers, side sleepers might want a softer, more conforming feel.Comforpedic Mattresses
  2. Comforpedic Renewed Energy – This plush firm feeling memory foam bed is 11.5” thick, and ideal for all types of sleepers.  It has the same 1” AirCool Memory Foam with TruTemp Gel as the Advanced Rest, but underneath that layer it has an additional 1.5” of 1.65lb AirCool Memory Foam.  This is what gives this mattress that softer feel.  The rest of the layers are identical until you reach the Transflexion Core, which on the Renewed Energy is 5” thick instead of 3.5”.
  3. Comforpedic Balanced Days – This plush mattress is the most popular of all the Comforpedic models, and is 12.5” thick.  Again, the layers are very similar between the Balanced Days and the Renewed Energy, the only difference being that second layer of comfort foams.  Instead of the 1.5” of 1.65lb AirCool memory foam, there is 1.5” of 4.5lb Advanced AirCool Memory Foam, which gives a softer, more conforming feel.  The Balanced Days is perfect for all types of sleepers, and is very popular for use on adjustable beds.Comforpedic Restored Spirits
  4. Comforpedic Restored Spirits – This mattress is the top of this new Comforpedic line-up, and has an ultra-plush feel.  This mattress is suitable for side and back sleepers, but may be too soft for stomach sleepers.  The Restored Spirits is 13” thick, and has higher density memory foam than all other Comforpedics.  The top layer is the same for all models, but then this mattress has 1.5” of 5.5lb Advanced AirCool Memory Foam, followed by 2.5” of the same 5.5lb foam.  This is what provides that super soft feel while maintaining support. The AirCool Transflexion Core is 6” on this mattress, providing support and pressure relief.

All of these Comforpedic mattresses are approved for use on adjustable bases, and all have a twenty-five year warranty.  Find out which one is best for you, and sleep well tonight!

Comforpedic vs. Tempurpedic – Why Consider Comforpedic?

A Battle for the Ages: Tempurpedic or Comforpedic for your Memory Foam Mattress?

It wasn’t that long ago that there were really only two options when choosing a Memory Foam mattress- Tempurpedic or the “other guy”.  For a full decade, Tempurpedic dominated the mattress scene much like Tiger Woods on the golf course.  No other company was able to create a feel and story that was compelling enough to turn the heads of consumers and sales professionals alike.

But recently, Simmons Beautyrest has re-launched the Comforpedic collection, and many consumers have started to take notice.

So how do these products compare? Which one is right for you?

affil_bbbBetter Business Bureau

Both Tempurpedic and Simmons Comforpedic are rated an A+ on the BBB web site.  This means that they are members of the BBB and are usually excellent at handling complaints until both parties are satisfied.  It DOES NOT mean that they never get complaints.

ODOR

images (2)Almost all products that use foam as a component will ship with some degree of odor or off gassing.  Most products manufactured in the US are required to meet a bevy of laws regarding chemicals and their use, and since Tempurpedic and Comforpedic are made in the US of US made components, both are relatively safe for use.  One consumer site called sleeplikethedead.com rates Comforpedic significantly better with odor than Tempurpedic, based on consumer complaints, with Comforpedic receiving a C + rating and Tempurpedic receiving a D +.  Also, Comforpedic is rated as a Certipur-US® Certified manufacturer, meaning it uses only materials that are independently verified as safe for your body and the environment.

Ratings

best_mattress_reviewsTempurpedic advertises that over 90{d066f20f781a5b527d275b31e1f8758c7870657f3e5775941a299b25a4f5af5a} of Tempurpedic users are satisfied with their purchase, which seems impressive.  But on sleeplikethedead.com, the rating is closer to 81{d066f20f781a5b527d275b31e1f8758c7870657f3e5775941a299b25a4f5af5a} satisfaction.  At 81{d066f20f781a5b527d275b31e1f8758c7870657f3e5775941a299b25a4f5af5a}, Tempurpedic is still one of the highest rated brands. Comforpedic, however, is rated at an 84{d066f20f781a5b527d275b31e1f8758c7870657f3e5775941a299b25a4f5af5a} approval and is the 2nd highest rated brand.  The biggest drawback for both products seems to be price point and weight.  Tempurpedic’s new Simplicity™ line starts their collection below $1500 for a queen mattress, but does not include any real memory foam and only has a 10 yr warranty.  Comforpedic’s collection starts around the same price point, but uses a full 1.5” sheet of memory foam and has a 25 yr limited warranty, making Comforpedic a better value proposition.

How Comforpedic Mattresses Help with Motion Separation

top complaints of couples is motion disturbance on mattress while sleepingOne of the top complaints of couples is motion disturbance.  There’s nothing worse than being woken up because your partner is changing position, or tossing and turning.  There is no reason why both people need to be awake all night!

comforpedic mattress DrsnoozeUp until about ten years ago, there were only two options to solve this problem: separate beds, or a mattress with individually wrapped coils.  Few people want to sleep in separate beds, so that leaves mattresses with increased motion separating coil systems.  We’ve all seen the bowling ball commercial by Beautyrest ( click here to view the Video) , and these beds were truly revolutionary.  They worked much better than regular mattresses, but the results were far from perfect: padding and quilting still moved and pulled from side to side, and foundations were known to move and flex when someone was tossing and turning.

Thankfully, now there is an even better option that really dampens motion: memory foam beds.  That major brand’s commercial with the wine glass and the jumping person is now famous, and that level of motion separation really exists with these beds.  Here’s why:

  1. Memory foam reacts only to what is touching it, meaning that each person is only affecting the memory foam that is directly under them.  Since there are no coils or quick reaction foams connecting one side of the bed to the other, motion is not transferred from person to person.
  2. The act of tossing and turning is reduced by up to 80{d066f20f781a5b527d275b31e1f8758c7870657f3e5775941a299b25a4f5af5a}.  People move around on beds to find a more comfortable position, or to even out pressure points.  Since memory foam eliminates those pressure points and cradles the body evenly, almost any position is comfortable, and the urge to move because of excess pressure isn’t felt.Memory Foam Offer from DrSnooze
  3. The final reason why people move, especially on memory foam beds, is because they are hot.  While this may continue on some brands, others have addressed this issue and have made their mattresses cooler.  One of these brands is Comforpedic, who made their mattresses dissipate heat 2.8 times faster than the competition by inventing the AirCool Sleep system, which is a combination of open cell foams, gel infused foams, and ventilated edge support and side material.

With Comforpedic, you truly get the best of all worlds: undisturbed sleep, and a cool and comfortable environment.  Partners don’t feel the need to move around as much as on a traditional mattress, and when they do have to move, they don’t transfer the motion to the other side of the bed and disturb their partner.  For those people who are very sensitive to movement, are very light sleepers, or just want to get a better night’s sleep, a Comforpedic may just fit their bill.

Top 5 Reviews on Comforpedic Mattresses in 2013

Since the new 2013 Comforpedic beds are still only a few months old, it’s difficult to find reviews for them online.  Sure, we found a ton of reviews on last year’s beds, but since much has changed, it’s not really that helpful.  At DrSnooze, we’ve been encouraging all of our Comforpedic customers to go online and post a review, good or bad.  We’ve been getting a ton more good than bad though!  Here’s the five most useful:

1. Regarding the Advanced Rest:

“firm and supportive” Review by Cheryl  – 4-Stars

“I was looking for a firmer memory foam bed – I don’t like to sink in, and this was perfect.  Much firmer and more comfortable than other brands.”

This review is a great testimony for AirCool Memory Foam.  Not only is it cooler than other brands, but it’s not as “sinky”.  The Advanced Rest is really very firm, and while it conforms well, it’s easier to move around on and get off of than other brands.

Reviews on Comforpedic Mattresses in 2013
2. Regarding the Renewed Energy:

“good for adjustable bed” Review by Paul – 5-Stars

“We bought this to be used with adjustable beds, and they’re perfect.  No complaints.”

The Renewed Energy is our most popular model for use on adjustable bases.  All of the Comforpedic models are approved for use on adjustables, because they bend and flex so well without breaking down.

3. Regarding the Renewed Energy:

“a satisfied customer” Review by John B. – 5-Stars

“I was shopping for a mattress for over two months, after a lot of research I can truly say I made the right decision.  It’s everything I expected, definitely helps with my back pain.”

Comforpedic Models

Memory foam is proven to reduce pressure points, decrease tossing and turning, and can be very beneficial for those with back problems.  When comparing Comforpedic mattresses to other brands, many customers are finding that Comforpedic is the one to buy, due to the price, the quality, the pressure relief, and the AirCool system.

4. Regarding the Balanced Days:

“much better than Tempurpedic” Review by Hot Flash Mary – 5-Stars

“We had a Tempurpedic, and ended up returning it because I was so hot on it, with my hot flashes.  We bought this one because we need a memory foam because my husband has bad back problems and it’s working really well.  I’m not as hot and his back feels better.”

Again, another lover of the AirCool System.  No one else has combined breathable foam, air channels, ventilated edge support, mesh borders, and gel all in one bed.  There is no memory foam bed that’s cooler.

5. Regarding the Balanced Days:

“Considering the price” Review by Amy P. – 4-Stars

“this bed is very comfortable.  I am 5’4 110lbs and my husband is 6’3 and he is very comfortable.  My only regret we should have gone with a king.”

The Comforpedic beds respond to each person differently.  This means that couples (like Amy P. and her husband) who are different sizes, shapes, and weights, can both be comfortable on the same mattress.  She’s probably also appreciating the lack of motion disturbance too!

There are so many different features and benefits of Comforpedic beds, and they fit the bill for so many different people with different needs and problems.  These new beds are getting glowing reviews from customers and sales people alike, and are worth consideration when you’re mattress shopping!
