While softness was once the top indicator of a bed’s quality, modern developments have shown that for many people, this is far from the truth. Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep, but everyone’s sleeping needs are unique. Though opting for a harder mattress may seem strange, those falling into any of the following categories may find night-time far more peaceful with a sturdier piece of furniture.
For those in the treatment process of obesity, the thought of a bed collapsing can be a worry that makes quality sleep impossible. Purchasing a reinforced bed is a sure-fire way to minimise that concern and maximise your peace of mind. Our Wyoming Bed, for example, has an upper weight limit of 65 stone, meaning anyone can sleep soundly knowing they have absolute support beneath them.
Individuals with mental health issues
Suffering from a mental illness is difficult enough without a safe place to recuperate at night. A reinforced bed provides a space that is built to withstand much more rough treatment than an ordinary model. We also know that, although robustness is very important, ultimately, comfort is king, and so we design our beds and mattresses with the perfect balance in mind. Finally, it is essential that mental health beds are built with nothing that can be dangerous to their occupants. Rounded corners and floor-bolting minimise the risk of deliberate self-harm for those sleeping in a reinforced bed.
People suffering from insomnia
Although people often attribute insomnia to a psychological issue, it is just as likely to be caused by problems with a sufferer’s bedroom setup. Doctors recommend trying to create a level plane for lying on to relax the body for longer and deeper sleeping. A heavy-duty mattress is key for this, for example, our Brick Mattress, which contains 1000 springs to ensure the even dispersal of weight and a perfectly flat surface.
Victims of back pain
Not all sleeping issues occur during the night. If you are like 2.5 million people across the UK, you will have suffered from back pain throughout the day. Unsurprisingly, much of this stems from an unsuitable mattress. While many will look to softer options to relax their joints, this can often make the matter worse. Alternatively, a reinforced mattress (such as the Brick) encourages a sleeper’s bones to take the brunt of their weight, rather than the muscles, thus minimising the risk of back pain.
