Is your old innerspring mattress giving you a backache? Innerspring mattresses can be great for many sleepers, but an old, outdated, or poorly-designed bed can do more harm than good. Wrapped coils are an exciting twist on the traditional innerspring configuration, and many people praise the wrapped coil mattress for its ability to provide superior support with minimal motion transfer. Read on to learn more about a wrapped coil mattress and why it may be right for you.
What is a Wrapped Coil Mattress?
A traditional innerspring mattress consists of a metal spring matrix surrounded by padding. The matrix is typically interconnected, with each spring touching numerous others. Because each coil is touching a few others, any compression or movement on one spring also impacts the surrounding ones. A wrapped coil mattress takes this design and tweaks it, encasing each individual coil in a fabric layer. The innerspring matrix (with individually-wrapped coils) is then surrounded by layers of padding and supportive material.
How a Wrapped Coil Mattress is Different
While it may seem like a small change, individually-encased coils can make a world of difference for those sleeping on a wrapped coil mattress. Traditional innerspring mattresses can transfer motion easily, but wrapped coils can help isolate disturbances and prevent them from reaching one’s sleeping partner. Wrapped coils can also help provide much-needed support and cushioning for side sleepers and those with back problems. Because the springs can compress individually, a wrapped coil mattress can conform to curves and soothe pressure points incredibly well.
Getting a Great Night’s Sleep With Support and Minimal Motion Transfer
When a mattress does not provide adequate support, sleepers may notice that they wake up with muscle aches or sore hips, backs, necks, or shoulders. A bed should offer the right balance of softness and support, cradling pressure points while holding waists, backs, and necks in proper alignment. Mattresses that minimize motion transfer are also valuable investments, particularly for those who sleep with a partner or pet. Some beds transfer motion when one tosses and turns in the middle of the night, disturbing others in the bed. A bed with pocket coils is designed to limit this motion transfer.
