People will typically give more consideration to the mobile device they use than their mattresses. A good night’s sleep is critical for physical and mental health and the mattress individuals sleep on will have a significant impact on whether they wake feeling refreshed or with aches and pains.
A hybrid mattress combines the support of traditional coil springs with multiple levels of foam. They’re appropriate for different body types and sleeping positions. A hybrid mattress is a good place to start for individuals that are unsure of what type of mattress will best fit their needs.
Hybrid Mattress Specs
Mattress shoppers should perform due diligence when shopping. Some manufacturers use the term hybrid as a selling point and marketing ploy. A hybrid mattress should have innersprings, with at least 1/3 of its height comprised of foam or another type of material.
There are multiple types of foam that are used in mattress construction. They include memory foam and gel-infused foam, along with foam of polyurethane, wool, cotton, and even cashmere. The material is layered above the innerspring for additional support. It’s a good choice for those with sleeping partners as it reduces motion transfer. Gel-infused memory foam aids in keeping sleepers cool.
There are also mattresses designed for those seeking an organic option. They’re made with certified organic materials that can include cotton, wool or latex foam.
Coils and Foam
Hybrid mattresses provide support and comfort, but individuals will need to pay attention to how the coils and layers of foam work together. All types of foam won’t be right for an individual’s sleep style, body weight, and may transfer motion and make it disturbing to a sleep partner. Pocketed coil springs are best for couples.
Memory foam was originally developed by NASA, but a myriad of different memory foam formulas is now available. Memory foam is designed to mold around the body for support, but can also trap heat. The ultimate choice of a hybrid mattress will depend on the preferences of the individual.
