On the other hand, when the mattress is subjected to the pressure generated by the weight, it can be transmitted to the soft lower layer, which can support the child's body without causing spinal deformity. The lower layer chooses a small-diameter ultra-dense spring bed net that can carefully fit the child's natural body curve, and no matter how the child sleeps on the mattress, it can get even and strong support. The middle layer and the surface in contact with the skin must be made of environmentally friendly, breathable, anti-bacterial and anti-mite materials.

Therefore, a mattress with strong support and moderate hardness should be used to give the spine a sufficient rest. And protection, it can also provide good support to the spine, which can prevent common scoliosis in young people.
