Listed below are some tips to help you choose the right orthopaedic mattress.
Before you go shopping it is advisable to do some basic research online. View some online sites that offer guidance on what kind of mattress would suit your orthopaedic condition.
Beware of false advertising
Some brands claim to manufacture orthopaedic mattress which are medically approved. They may have some orthopaedic friendly features but cannot be certified as orthopaedic mattresses. Hence, before you step out to buy one, check the orthopaedic mattress reviews for that particular brand.
Check with your doctor
Your doctor may not be an expert on mattresses but is aware of your particular medical condition and thus will offer some valuable advice on what kind of mattress would suit you best.
Test the product
A good quality orthopaedic mattress does not come cheap and after loosening your purse strings you may realize you have made the wrong choice. Instead when you narrow down your choices, spare a few minutes to lie on the mattress and see how comfortable you feel.
Firmness does not mean support
We are often led to believe that the firmer a mattress, the better the support. While a firm mattress may suit some people, for those suffering from arthritis a mattress which reduces contact pressure on the sensitive and painful joints, would be more advisable.
Not too hard and not too soft either is what you should be looking at if you have an orthopaedic ailment. If the mattress is too soft then it will make moving around difficult. People with back, neck or joint pain tend to be restless sleepers and often need to change their sleep position to reduce stiffness caused by a stationary position and a very soft mattress will hinder the movement.
Check about trials and warranty
Some good orthopaedic mattress brands in India may be willing to give you the mattress for a trial period and also offer a warranty for a minimum of 10 years. This needs to be checked before you make the purchase.
Shop at a specialized store
When you do your research look for stores near you that specialize in orthopaedic mattresses. This will allow you greater choice and the assistance of sales staff that have been trained for this specific purpose. Choose a store that offers some quality brand names.
