Viscoelastic mattresses for bed frames. Introduced over twenty years ago these mattresses started out quite pricey and were only in select higher end homes by people who could afford them. Today, there are many brands of viscoelastic mattresses and can be found in a much greater number of homes. Viscoelastic has unique properties in that the mattress is made up of material called visco cells. These cells have a memory and when they sense heat the material conforms around the heat. Your body supplies the heat and the mattress molds around you. This is different than innerspring mattresses in which you lay on top of the mattress. With visco mattresses you actually feel the mattress around you. Coverings for these mattresses can range from fabric, bamboo, cashmere or any number of materials. In recent years some customers have commented that the mattress becomes hot while laying on it. Tempur-Pedic which is a leader in viscolelastic mattresses has since created a more breathable covering to disperse heat. Its not immediately clear if other manufacturers of these mattresses have done the same. Viscoelastic mattresses have been promoted as helping those with bad backs find greater comfort. Tempur-Pedic and Dormia are just a couple of the many brands available.
Hastens mattresses and beds are manufactured in Sweden, and are world renowned for their restfulness and elegance. Hasten beds are, since 1952, the favored beds of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. However, Hasten has been known as the manufacturer of a luxury mattress for a hundred years before that royal honor was given.
Latex Toppers are quite a bit more expensive. This is due to the fact that they are made of a material which is a bit more expensive - rubber. While a premium memory foam topper costs about $120 you will be expected to pay upwards of $220 for even a basic latex model. The latex design again moulds to your shape however it doesn't 'sink' like the memory foam. Imagine a very soft rubber and sticking your hand into it - that's what a latex mattress topper does. The advantages are that latex is very natural - it comes from the rubber tree so if you don't like synthetic things in your house the rubber topper is the better option. It's also hypo-allergenic and breathes easily, being a natural material.
