The support structure of innerspring mattresses is constructed using wire coils made firmer or softer depending on the wires gauge. Because the coils are placed evenly throughout the mattress, and reinforced around the edges, an innerspring mattress has a strong border that prevents the "roll out" effect. The border wire attached to the perimeter coils help to retain the shape of the mattress and reduce sagging. Larger gauge, or thicker wire coils offer more support than smaller gauge coils, so keep this in mind when choosing a mattress based on your personal preference of comfort level.

Memory foam, also known as Visco Elastic foam, has the unique ability to mold and conform to your body while dispersing your weight evenly throughout the bed. This technology is what makes memory foam great for achy joint, morning pains and restless sleepers. The contouring effect of memory foam takes pressure off of your joints, while reducing pressure points to keep you from tossing and turning at night. Memory foam is also resistant to mold, bacteria, bed bugs, dust mites and many types of allergens.
Today, many people prefer a memory foam mattress for its pressure-relieving comfort, ability to conform and adapt to each person's body, and outstanding motion isolation. Even so, traditional memory foam technology hasn't changed much since it was invented more than 40 years ago. Isn't it about time that someone reinvented memory foam'
Adjustable beds are now common in the everyday household because they provide a greater variety of support and sleep positions than a standard bed. Adjustable beds give you the option to raise the head and/or feet of the bed to find the most comfortable position, whether you're sleeping or relaxing, all with a touch of the button. Adjustable beds are great for people who like to sit up while watching television, read a book before they fall asleep or work on their laptop computer while beneath the sheets. Then, when it's time to sleep, you can adjust the bed for optimal sleep support. Adjustable beds are also great for people with health conditions, such as back or neck problems, acid reflux disease, multiple sclerosis and breathing issues.
