Our team has been working with NUS Researchers over the past 10 months to conclusively assess the pressure distribution properties of a latex mattress such as our Sofzsleep® POS+CARE Medical Latex Mattress. For this study, we provided a sample basic-tier latex mattress for the team of researchers at NUS.
Latex and Polyurethane (PU) have long been used as mattress materials for individuals with special needs or with specific medical conditions.
Early indications in March this year have shown that the Sofzsleep® latex mattress exhibited better body pressure and weight distribution than a PU foam mattress. The latex mattress also exhibited a lower pressure profile across the body regions, potentially providing better comfort than its PU counterpart.
