Do you ever wake-up feeling more tired than when you went to bed? Or do you feel pain in your lower back or other parts of your body? Do you wake up in the night feeling hot and sweaty? Are you or your partner tossing and turning in the night keeping each other awake? All these sleeping problems are common and while sometimes caused by a serious sleeping disorder most of the time it is simply a case of an unsuitable mattress. This is largely caused by people purchasing cheap mattresses the wrong type of mattress for their needs or never changing their mattress. Sometimes you might not even be aware of the fact that the mattress you are using is not suitable for you. An example of this is that many people experience back problems but purchase a soft or medium feel mattress while they can drastically reduce pain by a good pressure relief and firm mattress. Mattresses are personal and for each problem there is a specific mattress with a solution.
By Federal law ANY AND ALL mattresses manufactured and sold in the United States must pass a flame test. Under the law a mattress must be subjected to a flame for 70 seconds before it ignites. How this is achieved varies from manufacturer to manufacturer but most manufacturers achieve this by using chemicals. These chemicals (Boric acid Antimony and Decabromodiphenyl Oxide) are the same chemicals that have been banned in Europe for years and the same chemicals that are used in pesticides to kill roaches and have been linked to reproductive and developmental diseases heart and lung damage hair and memory loss SIDS birth defects skin irritation and are believed to be carcinogens. Continued exposure to these chemicals cause accumulation in the body and present themselves in breast milk the blood stream and in umbilical cord fluids.
Intelli-Gel Mattresses. Another recently developed technology that is being adapted to a number of products - everything from shoe insoles to backpack straps to hunting equipment to mattresses. Intelligel is different from other bedding materials because it works on a column buckling principle. Most other mattresses provide support by pushing against those protruding areas of the body. Intelli-Gel is different. Columns of elastic gel are placed next to each other across the mattress surface. The columns are designed to stand until a certain amount of weight is placed on them. When the columns weight limit is reached the columns buckle and becomes soft while columns around the area remain firm and supportive. The result ends up being a bedding surface that is firm supportive and comfortable. Also because the Intelligel is broken into columns it doesnt retain heat like memory foam. Intelligel is used as the main material in some mattresses and is combined with coils memory foam and air chambers in others.
