What should be the mattress
In the manufacture of beds in mattresses can be used several types of orthopedic components.
Types of orthopedic components are very important.
It is about:
- elastic polyurethane foam (PUF);
- independent blocks with springs;
- combination of blocks with zones and PPU.
Polyurethane foam should be at least 8 centimeters thick
In the latter case, polyurethane foam should have a thickness of at least 8 centimeters, and blocks with independent springs should be made of alloy steel. It is also necessary to pay attention to such a feature as the weight of the buyer. Than it is heavier, the PPU should be tougher.
Pay attention to your weight when buying
The option for the picky customer is a thick layer of polyurethane foam at the same time as the spring blocks. But for this sofa bed will need quite a bit of free space in the room.. In this case, the “American clamshell” and “accordion” will be the ideal transformation mechanism. They are specially designed for comfort during sleep.
"American folding bed" and "accordion" require a lot of space, but are comfortable to sleepBoth mechanisms allow the bed to be decomposed so that the surface of the orthopedic mattress is as flat as possible. Here is the likelihood of joints and places with seams.
As for the other mechanisms, it was necessary to invent combined furniture here, since the mattress simply did not even fit into such a design.

Often the orthopedic base is relevant for the angular type of furniture and sofa beds. Such systems for smoothing as "jaguar" and "dolphin" are used to ensure that the bed comes out of the product and is as close as possible to the base.

The blood vessels work twice as intensively, which will provide the internal organs with a rush of sufficient amount of blood to complete the work.

Orthopedic mattresses with and without springs
Buying a sofa bed with or without springs is essentially a private matter for everyone. The main thing to pay attention to is that the spring blocks were made with high quality. In this case, the surface does not pose a danger to the health of the wearer and is as comfortable as possible for sleeping.
Spring blocks must be made of high quality
If you ask an orthopedic doctor for advice, he will most likely advise you to buy a mattress with springs, if 2 people sleep on it, and springless if it is intended for one person. UhThis is explained by the fact that the 2-bedroom mattress should not respond to the difference in weight of the partners.
The 2nd sleeping mattress should not react to a difference in the weight of partnersTo solve this problem, special sofa beds with orthopedic surfaces consisting of 2 parts were invented - one for the man and the other for the woman.
It is also worth considering that it is necessary to sleep correctly on such a mattress. Bodies should not roll down to each other and lie unevenly.

Before purchasing a mattress, you need to ask the seller whether it will be possible to return or replace it. For most people, the spine is curved to a greater or lesser extent. After people begin to sleep on an orthopedic surface, they may experience discomfort.

This is a normal practice and not a cause for concern. Gradually, these sensations must pass and the spine will become in its natural position. Such an addiction to the surface lasts a maximum of 3 weeks. But if this period lasted more than a month, you need to think about returning the mattress or replacing it with another one, with a tougher or softer surface.
