Adjustable Bed Frame with Memory Foam Mattress
Not all bed mattresses are made the same and adjustable bed frames are suitable for only a few types of mattresses, one of them the very popular memory foam mattress.
The memory foam as it’s commonly called is a true space-age material derived from plastics and originally developed for NASA astronauts. Here is a material—visco-elastic—that counters G-Forces to support the body contours perfectly. As a mattress, the memory foam does just the same, though there a good number of different construction options, with some companies now focusing on adding cooling features. Tempurpedic is one of the most popular memory foam bed manufacturers.
Most memory foam mattresses come in 8- or 10-inch thick models, packed with a layer of dense memory foam over the top of another dense foam. The mattress when married to an adjustable bed frame is supple enough to move with the mechanics of the machine.
If you struggle with insomnia, due to snoring, pain and discomfort or another physical condition that could be aided by an adjustable bed, talk to your doctor. He or she can guide you with that decision—not everyone is a candidate for an adjustable memory foam bed.
