Quite simply, a gel mattress is a mattress featuring gel elements. This element can come in the shape of a gel pad layer on a gel top mattress, or beneath padded mattress layers. However, the gel could also be poured into a memory foam component of the mattress as it sets or be combined in the mattress composition with formed of beads gel. Gel memory foam mattresses are the most common type of these mattresses, though gel can also be combined with latex and innerspring styles.
Gel mattresses are a relatively new phenomenon in the bed and mattress industry. These mattresses are a popular sleeping solution because of the unparalleled levels of comfort they offer, which has the ability to help keep you cool during the night and also offer optimum levels of cushioning.
A gel mattress can help to regulate the body’s temperature throughout the night, ensuring that you enjoy a more restful and therefore better‐quality sleep. These mattresses were made to combat complaints about memory foam beds becoming uncomfortably hot during the night. A gel mattress is therefore designed to help create a cooler sleeping environment. This can work to properly distribute temperature and is the ideal solution if you’re concerned about getting hot at night.
Gel mattresses also help to provide extra comfort. Combined with the base support of your choice of mattress, the features of a gel mattress work to provide a floating effect. This gives total comfort and support, ensuring that you receive a good night’s sleep, every night. Due to this level of cushioning, a gel mattress is recommended for all sleeping positions, including:
With side sleepers, your pressure points include your hips and shoulders, both of which are sensitive to discomfort if not cushioned properly. A gel mattress can work to reduce feelings of pressure on these points while you lie in bed.
For those who sleep on their back, the common pressure points include your spine and buttocks. A gel mattress provides the right amount of support to help the spine maintain its neutral position, while also reducing heaviness on your joints, meaning you’re less likely to wake up feeling stiff and sore.
Finally, for those who sleep on their front, pressure points include the knees, hips and rib cage. For front sleepers, a supportive mattress is essential to aid the spine’s alignment. Therefore, a gel mattress is also best for this sleeping position, as it can help to cradle your shape.
