Memory Foam Mattress Officially Evolves in the Latex Bed

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

Memory Foam Mattress Officially Evolves in the Latex Bed, and understanding what it means.

Latex mattresses are beginning to evolve into new memory foam mattresses. These mattresses have been popular in Europe for years. However, the new trend is beginning to sweep across America. Americans have chosen memory foam mattresses as their “mattress of choice” for years now. But, latex mattresses are beginning to take over the lead.

Latex mattresses come in many different sizes, styles, levels of quality and different prices. Generally, latex mattresses are very expensive. A good quality latex mattress can cost upwards of $2,000. People love latex because the new latex technology alleviates some of the disadvantages of memory foam mattresses. A common complaint of memory foam is that it retains heat, thus causing the sleeper to become uncomfortable while asleep. Latex mattresses don’t have this problem because the air pocket holes actually work to cool down the mattress in the summer months and keep it warmer during winter.

Latex mattresses have been specially designed to provide all-around support. Memory foam mattresses tend to have a supportive base and semi-supportive upper layer. Latex mattresses provide support throughout the entire mattress, rather than allowing the sleeper to “sink in” to the mattress core. Allergies have also been a problem for people who sleep on a memory foam mattress. Memory foam mattresses are not hypoallergenic and can cause problems for people who are sensitive to allergies. Latex foam technology works to resist dust mites, mold and mildew and is naturally hypoallergenic.

Lastly, people love latex mattresses because they are “green.” People everywhere have joined the “Green” movement and are looking to support products that are also green products. Latex mattresses are made from all-natural materials and are biodegradable. All in all, latex mattresses are completely “eco-friendly.”

Memory foam mattresses have been extremely popular in America for the last several years, and for good reason. They offer good comfort and support. However, there have been some complaints about the memory foam mattress. Because of these complaints, manufacturers have been working to create a mattress that provides the comfort and support of memory foam, but without the disadvantages. They have solved the problem with latex mattress. Latex mattress offer more support and comfort than memory foam mattresses do. They also are more temperature friendly, hypoallergenic and are green friendly. If you are in the market for a new mattress, try a latex mattress. They are quite expensive but you’ll soon find out why they are becoming so popular in America.

5 Tips For Using Memory Foam Mattress Pads

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

How to Use Memory Foam Mattress Pads

Memory foam mattress pads were first used in the 1980s in hospitals. The memory foam mattress pads were seen as a miracle product that helped alleviate the pressure points and bed sores from bedridden patients. When these pads were finally introduced to the general public, they sold at ridiculously high prices. Fortunately, memory foam mattress pads are extremely well-priced today. If you are looking to enjoy the benefits of memory foam, but can’t afford to purchase an entire mattress set, go with a memory foam mattress pad.

Memory foam mattress pads, memory foam mattress toppers, memory foam pads, memory foam toppers are all different ways of describing the same product. You can easily enjoy the comfort and support of a memory foam mattress at a fraction of the price. Here are the steps to use a memory foam mattress pad.

1. Buy a good quality memory foam mattress pad. You can find great deals on these pads online. Rocky Mountain Mattress has fabulous prices and excellent products. Start there to find your mattress pad.

2. Place the pad on your existing mattress. In order to get the most benefit from your memory foam mattress pad, you need to make sure that you place the pad on a mattress that still has support. A mattress pad can only do so much and needs to be put on a traditional mattress that still has some life in it.

3. Break it in. As with other products, you need to break the memory foam in for a few weeks. If you want to speed up the process of breaking it in, sleep directly on the foam rather than putting a bed sheet on it. Remember that the foam needs a chance to adjust to your body. This should take at least a few weeks.

4. Lower your room temperature. Memory foam mattresses are made to be temperature sensitive. This is because it uses your body heat to warm up the material so that it can adjust to your natural body shape. Because of this, it may cause you to be too hot while you sleep on it. Most people do not have a problem with this. If it is a problem for you, try lowering your thermostat before going to bed each night or sleeping without the top sheet.

5. Use a cover. Take care of your memory foam mattress. It is going to be a great investment for you to get a great night’s sleep. Protect it from spills or rips by using a protective cover. You can also find these bed covers at Rocky Mountain Mattress. (see pictures below)

What Position Do You Like Better

Friday, September 5th, 2008

What position do you like sleeping in that is … what did you think this post was going to be about? Being in the mattress industry I often wonder how do most people sleep, i.e. side, stomach, or back sleepers … so I did some research.

Before I get into it, I wanted to share a picture of a funny sleeping position:

funny sleeping positions

Did you know there is a correlation between the position you sleep in and your personality? It may sound wacky, but it is actually true. The Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service recently conducted a study to show the correlation. They found that as a person chooses a certain sleeping position, it shows their subconscious body language, which affects their personality traits. The SAAS conducted the study by choosing a large number of random, hotel guests.

They identified six major sleeping positions. These are the fetal position, the soldier position, the starfish position, the freefall position, and log position and the yearner position. Interestingly enough, these positions did, in fact, relate to their individual personality traits.

Over 51 percent of the women that participated in the study slept in the fetal position. Forty-one percent of all participants slept like this. They curled up on their sides and clenched a pillow. This sleeping position leads to a person who is shy and sensitive, although they tend to hide behind a tough exterior to the rest of the world.

Eight percent of the participants slept in the soldier position. They laid flat on their backs with their arms directly at their sides. This position indicates that the person is quiet and reserved. Although they are quiet, they set high standards for themselves and those around them. Five percent of people slept in the starfish position. These people were found lying on their back with their arms and legs outstretched. These people tend to be those who are good listeners and who could make friends easily. In addition, these people do not like to be the center of attention.

The study found seven percent of people in the freefall position. These people laid on their stomachs with their arms near their ears or head. The freefall position indicates someone who makes brash decision, yet is inwardly nervous about criticism. Fifteen percent of people slept in the log position. They laid on their sides with their legs extended and their arms at their sides. These people have proved to be easygoing and very social. Thirteen percent of people slept in the yearner position. This is similar to the log position but with the arms extended as well. This sleeping position proves to lead to a cynical and suspicious personality.

The SAAS did not only link sleeping positions to personality traits. The study also showed what sleeping positions affect one’s health. They found the freefall position to aid in digestion. The starfish position and the soldier position led to a bad night’s rest and snoring.

As you can see, over seventy-nine percent of the participants slept on their sides. Thirteen percent of people slept on their backs. Only seven percent of people slept on their stomachs. Take a look at how you sleep and if this study proves the link between your sleep and your personality.

We really love this one because a couple founding members of Rocky Mountain Mattress attended college for a spell at Eastern Arizona College, which is close to Duncan Arizona, where this testimonial came out of. There are many people in that area that have campers, and RVs and love to spend time in the outdoors. We are just glad we can make the experience a more comfortable one!

Thank you so much! The mattress and pillows arrived yesterday and they are wonderful. From the sale to delivery everything has been beautiful. The fit is prefect. Thanks so much. We will be in touch, to have custom cushions made for the RV.
Great job,

The Totally Suprising Truth About Bioflex Medical Magnets

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Because Rocky Mountain Mattress sells beds, and other various bedding related products (pillows etc) with the Bioflex Medical Magnets in them, I am often asked the question – Do Bioflex medical magnets really work in a mattress?

Sleep is one of the most important aspects of overall health and well-being. You can’t function properly or effectively without a productive night’s sleep. Over 50 million Americans suffer from a chronic sleep disorder. This can include sleep apnea, insomnia or narcolepsy. Studies have shown that on average, 25 percent of Americans do not get enough sleep. What is being done to help combat the rising problem of sleep disorders?

Bioflex Magnetic Sleep Pads were strategically designed with the help of scientists, engineers and medical professionals. These medical magnets are said to be the “most advanced and effective products of their kind for their ability to help us get a good night’s rest naturally.” But, do they really work in a mattress?

Reports prove that these static magnets, which never needs replenishing, have an astounding affect on the blood. The magnet affects charged particles in the blood, helping the blood vessels to expand. This allows a larger amount of nutrient-rich blood to flow, which increases healing and growth time. Increased blood flow also helps you feel well-rested after a good night’s sleep.

Athletes and body builders swear by these magnets. They understand that recovery time is faster as blood flow to a muscle is increased. Bioflex magnets do just that. Amateurs, college athletes, Olympic athletes and professionals have seen the benefits for using a magnet in their mattress. They all try to increase training naturally and have found Bioflex to be the best product.

Magnets are used along with traditional methods (ultrasound, hydrotherapy, massage, etc) to help speed up the healing process. Magnets are becoming extremely popular in healing injuries such as carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, muscle strains, ligament strains or tendon strains. All you have to do is apply the magnet to the affected area.

If you are still unsure about the benefits of a Bioflex medical magnet, talk to your doctor or personal trainer. Try one of these magnets in your mattress and see how long it takes for you to start feeling better. Don’t risk your sleep just because you are skeptical of this product. Try it for yourself.
