Memory Mattress Pad
Using A Memory Mattress Pad When Bedridden
Being laid up in bed for a long time is a thoroughly unpleasant experience. Apart from the boredom and the lack of physical and mental exercise there is also the risk of medical complaints such as bed sores, poor circulation and a bad back. While modern technology has given us portable entertainment such as laptops, wireless Internet and mp3 players which can help relieve the boredom a little you may not be aware that it has also come up a couple of mattress ideas, such as the memory mattress pad, which might also help you avoid the worst of the medical conditions commonly found in bedridden patients.
Here are a few different ways of helping your time in bed be a little bit less painful:
Three Good Options To Make You More Comfortable
1. Memory foam mattress or memory mattress pad. This is a mattress, or in the case of the pad a thin mattress overlay, which is made of visco elastic foam, and is also known as a space foam mattress due to NASA’s role in developing the material. This gives a really firm lying position and molds to your body. In fact, some of its first non NASA uses were in medical situations. A full mattress can be prohibitively expensive, so memory mattress pads are chosen instead by many users.
2. Gel mattress or gel mattress pad. This is another firm bed, and also eliminates bed sores and helps improve circulation by eliminating pressure points and giving a well balanced, even support. It is also sold either as a full mattress or as an overlay pad, which is sometimes called a gel mattress topper.
3. Sheepskin mattress pad. This is a more natural, organic mattress solution than the previous two. As well as giving a well distributed support sheepskin mattress pads are also great at keeping you warm and absorbing moisture.
