Mattress Types

Mattress Types

1.Innerspring: 
Innerspring mattresses have wire coils as the support structure. An innerspring mattress has a strong border wire attached to the perimeter of the coils. The border wire supports the coils, helping to retain shape and reduce sagging. The edge is reinforced with specially shaped springs or foam to support the sleep surface right to the edge, to help prevent ‘rollout’ and edge breakdown. The upholstery is separated from the innerspring system by an insulator, a tough padding, wire or netting layer that prevents the upholstery from sinking into the coils.
 

 
2.Memory Foam Mattress:

The Swedish Mattress company, Tempur-Pedic, introduced this material in a mattress form to the people of Sweden in 1991. In 1992, Tempur-Pedic launched the products in North America. With the success of Tempur-Pedic, other foam manufacturers developed their own viscoelastic memory foam materials flooding the market with a variety of options and price levels. With this we also saw the use of viscoelastic foam in products other than mattresses.

3.Air mattresses:

Air beds and air mattresses are used in hospitals and nursing homes because they are very efficient at alleviating pressure. Air beds and air mattresses distribute weight across the surface using different technology than foam and inner spring mattresses. Foam or inner spring mattresses absorb body weight but they do not displace body weight the way air beds or mattresses do.


4.Waterbeds:

Water beds were first invented over 100 years ago but didn’t gain widespread popularity until 1968 when a design student at San Francisco State University used modern materials to make the water bed a practical reality. Charles Hall created the basis for the modern water bed but wasn’t able to secure a patent for his work due to several instances of prior art dating back to 1871.
Modern water beds come in two types, soft-sided and hard-sided. The classic water bed is the hard-sided variety with sturdy wood sides helping to keep the water mattress rigid (and contain spills in the event of a puncture).
