The History of Orthopaedic Pocket Sprung Mattresses

All orthopaedic mattresses are designed to provide a good night's sleep, but the technology behind the different types of orthopaedic mattresses differs. "Not all orthopaedic mattresses are made equal" Duke Brother.

The pocket spring orthopaedic mattresses is a relatively new invention, designed for a multitude of different needs. It's been around for over a decade, but the innovation on the quality of spring by applying the latest technology is changing the industry compared to what it was 20 years ago.

What is an Orthopaedic Pocket Sprung Mattress?

A Pocket Sprung Orthopaedic Mattress comprises of a layer of small springs that are enclosed in a fabric pocket. These springs, which are all of different lengths, react individually to the pressure applied to them. This is unlike more traditional open-coil mattresses where the springs move as a whole. It is this difference in construction that allows Pocket Sprung Orthopaedic Mattresses to provide a more personalised level of support for each person sleeping on the mattress. Because each spring moves independently from the others, there is less roll-together, which means that movement is not transferred to other areas of the mattress.

How to Choose The Right Pocket Sprung Orthopaedic Mattress For You

If you're looking for an orthopaedic mattress that will provide you with a restful night's sleep, you might want to consider a pocket sprung mattress. These mattresses provide a firm yet comfortable sleeping surface, and they'll help eliminate pressure points so you don't have to toss and turn all night. If you're not sure what a pocket sprung mattress is, let's take a look at some of the benefits these mattresses have to offer.

The Benefits of Pocket Spring Orthopaedic Mattresses 

Pocket springs are an integral part of a pocket sprung orthopaedic mattress. They are the interior springs of the mattress. They are composed of coil springs which are designed to provide maximum support for your body. Each spring is surrounded by fabric which provides both comfort and durability. Pocket springs provide excellent support whilst retaining the softness of the mattress. The springs are designed to react to your body weight and shape.

When the mattress is compressed the pocket springs move independently of each other, thus allowing the mattress to better conform to the shape of a person sleeping on it.

In order to achieve a consistent level of firmness across the whole of the mattress, Duke Brothers uses a unique design in the manufacture of our pocket spring mattresses. The individual pocket springs are enclosed within their own individual cloth sleeves. This means that as the springs compress, the fabric of the sleeve prevents the pocket spring from becoming loose and therefore maintains a consistent level of firmness across the entire mattress. This design also makes the springs more durable, as it prevents the springs from rubbing against one another and wearing down.

Body Support

Since the pocket springs are held in cloth sleeves, it means that each pocket spring remains at the same consistent tension. This means that the mattress is kept at the same level of firmness throughout the entire surface area of the mattress.

The pocket spring system offers a number of advantages; it provides support to the whole body, rather than just one or two key areas, and it allows the mattress to contour to the body's shape in an optimal way. This is important in preventing pressure points, which can cause numbness and pain in the morning. The pocket spring system provides total body support, and this is why it is particularly popular with those who suffer from back problems or various other ailments.

Pressure Points

Pocket sprung mattresses are made with springs hand-woven into pockets of fabric. When you lie on the mattress, the pocket springs move independently of each other to provide you with unparalleled levels of comfort and support during your sleep. They are available in either single, double or king size, with a range 1,000 spring mattress to 12,000 pocket springs mattresses.

The pocket spring helps to support the weight of the sleeper. Pocket spring counts are determined by the number of pocket springs found in a mattress. A king size mattress with 2000 pocket springs has fewer pocket springs than a king size mattress with 12,000 pocket springs. A Super king size mattress with 6,000 pocket springs has fewer pocket springs than a super king size mattress with 12,000 pocket springs.

The number of springs in a mattress has no correlation with the firmness and support of the mattress in question. That is because, for a given firmness and support, a mattress with a larger number of springs will have a greater 'spring density' than one with a smaller number of springs, and will therefore support more of your body weight across a greater number of springs.

Mattress Toppers (Pillow Tops)

Some mattress toppers are designed to be used on top of an existing mattress, usually to deal with problems like pain or allergies. These mattress toppers are generally denser than mattress toppers that are designed to be the only mattress on the bed. The best toppers are often made of latex, memory foam, or wool. The latex topper is essentially a latex mattress that is cut into the shape of a topper. The memory foam topper is not as dense as a memory foam mattress. And, the wool topper is not as dense as wool bedding.

Is a Pocket Spring Mattress Good for People with Bad Backs?

A pocket sprung mattress is a good choice for anyone with back pain or find the right orthopaedic mattress. Pocket springs are dual layer, individually pocketed springs that provide even support and support the weight of the body in the right places. The springs are placed in between the mattress and the foam, so they are in direct contact with the body. This direct contact is much more effective than support provided by the foam.

Mattresses are an important part of our sleep system and, for this reason, should be considered carefully when making a purchase. A mattress can contribute to a good night's sleep and the overall health of the back, but there are many factors to consider when making a purchase. There are many mattress types available on the market today, including innerspring, latex, air and foam. All of these can vary in terms of firmness and support. It is important to consider these factors when making a purchase, as well as overall mattress firmness, whether the mattress is orthopaedic, and the comfort layers of the mattress. These all contribute to providing the correct level of support and back care you need.
