ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN MATTRESS SHOPPING IS PRESSURE RELIEF
Memory Foam was once though to be the best foam for pressure relief. It was invented in the 1970’s and since many new foams like IDLE Buoyancy Foam have been invented that offer even better pressure relief, but less of a “stuck” feeling.
IDLE Buoyancy foam has Billions of microscopic air bubbles within the foam that provide a cloud-like feel, airflow and the best support.
With insufficient pressure relief you can experience things like:
Kinks in your back and neck
LESS PRESSURE ON SENSITIVE AREAS, MORE IDLE REST
IDLE Buoyancy Foam has less push back against your body than traditional memory foam and other bedding foams. It’s proven in pressure mapping studies! You will feel a cloud-like sensation on IDLE mattresses and our foams, vs the sinking feeling of most memory foam.
FASTER RESPONSE & LESS OF A STUCK FEELING
IDLE Buoyancy foam provides improved pressure relief and possesses a faster foam response than memory foams, crucial in establishing a properly distributed and balanced sleeping posture. With less body “hug” then memory foam it is much easier to adjust positions on IDLE. IDLE removes memory foam’s “sinking in”, sensation and the “sleeping hot” feeling that can come with memory foam’s polyurethane chemical composition.
Below we have pressure mapping examples of IDLE foam and Memory foam to illustrate how good IDLE foam is for pressure relief. The example shows the participant laying on their back.
Red areas (in the hip area mainly) represent areas of higher pressure, with yellow, green, and blue representing areas with less pressure & force pushing back against your body.
Looking at the memory foam, you can see a higher amount of pressure in the low back/hip area, where the IDLE foam has less force (red areas) on the same areas of their body.
20% BETTER PRESSURE RELIEF
On Average you can expect 20% better pressure relief when comparing IDLE buoyancy Foam to traditional Memory Foam and other traditional bedding materials.
SOFTNESS & PRESSURE RELIEF
You can achieve better pressure relief with a softer mattress. Most people prefer a medium feel mattress and it has been hard for mattress manufacturers to achieve optimal pressure relief while providing the feel and support people need.
We have accomplished both with IDLE Sleep mattresses. Our Medium feel Hybrid and Natural Latex are the most popular and they have a perfect medium feel but the pressure relief of a softer mattress.
IDLE foams have many benefits, pressure relief being the most important, and cooling a close second.
