Tossing and turning at night? That’s probably because your mattress isn’t properly supporting your pressure points. Pressure points are the places on our bodies that hold up the most weight while we sleep: for example, the hip. If your mattress doesn’t support these, you’ll feel discomfort. Fortunately, hospitals first discovered the efficacy of memory foam mattresses in alleviating pressure sores in the 1990s. It didn’t take long for the good news to spread.
Now memory foam mattresses are available for home use. They are sensitive to the shape and temperature of your body, conforming to every curve and crevice. This means that the bed supports each part of your body the right amount, relieving pressure points and causing you to turn less. Your weight is more evenly distributed across your body, allowing you to sleep with ease. Pressure points no longer have to bear all the weight.
