4. A great feature of memory foam is that it’s also helpful in terms of relieving the pain on pressure spots. If you have arthritis, or joint pain, then these beds might be able to help. It cushions you, and will reduce any impact you might otherwise encounter.
5. Older beds which use only a pillow top or some sort of soft top layer, have a tendency to begin wearing out over time, which allows the underlying springs to start making more and more of an impression. Eventually, these springs can serve as pressure points on the bed, causing you discomfort.
6. Memory foam, for the most part, eliminates this. Many memory foam mattresses don’t even include springs, and in hybrid mattresses that use both, the foam serves as a fair enough protector between the two. This is, of course, good news for anyone who suffers from things like back pain.
7. When using a memory foam mattress, it is less likely that you will be able to feel your partner moving. There is a reduced chance that you will be bothered by their getting up or tossing and turning. This is due in part to the density of the mattress. Because you sink in, movement is basically absorbed by the mattress, rather than being transferred, as would happen with a traditional spring mattress. This is good if you are a light sleeper and are easily awakened.
8. Another benefit is that memory foam can be hypoallergenic. It has a very dense structure, which is good for reducing the number of allergens that can build up. Dust, mold and other allergens will not be able to find a way into your mattress. This is very helpful for people who have allergies, as they are very often prevented from getting a good night’s sleep.
