Memory Foam Mattress vs. Coil Spring Mattress; How Do They Differ?

By Charles "Chuck" Harmon

Have you ever wondered how anyone got the idea to start sleeping on springs in the first place?

I mean, think about it for a minute, what would it feel like to lay down on the bare springs?

And why is it, that laying on springs with some kind of material over them, is considered any better?

The creation of a coil spring mattress was first documented, by patent, in 1865, and there have only been a couple of minor changes, to that original design, in the following 140 years.

During that same period, we went from plowing fields with oxen, to men living in space.

Don't you think it's conceivable that we could find new ideas and materials to improve the mattresses we spend 1/3 of our life on?

The differences, between a regular coil spring mattress and a memory foam mattress, will be presented, to help you understand the difference.

The Difference In Total Body Support

One way, in which a memory foam mattress is better for you is the characteristic of total body support.

A memory foam mattress and a coil spring mattress differ greatly in this respect. A coil spring mattress makes your body conform to it.

The pressure, or force, from the coil springs, in the mattress, is exerted against your body.

It's kind of like a push and shove match. You're pushing down on the springs, forcing them to retreat and they're shoving back against you, trying to uncoil.

On a coil spring mattress, your body must adjust to the mattress's shape.

This is why you complain of sore muscles and stiffness, when you wake up in the morning.

With a memory foam mattress, the opposite happens.

The foam material conforms to your body, because your body exerts it's force onto it.

So, as you lay down, you will feel the memory foam altering to accommodate you, leaving you with a feeling of total relaxation.

It is because of this ability, of a memory foam mattress, to totally support your body and adjust to your weight, that the movements of the other person in the bed will not affect you.

Since coil spring mattresses do not conform to you, they cannot spread your weight evenly.

Another Difference Is Temperature Sensitivity

Another difference, between coil spring and memory foam mattresses, is that memory foam mattresses have the ability to respond to different temperatures.

The memory foam is able to sense the different temperatures of your body and either remain firm or soften.

This leaves you with a nice cozy feeling when it has absorbed your heat and softened up.

Coil spring mattresses are unable to do this. They cannot react to your body heat, and this is why someone, who is sick with a fever, would feel more comfortable on a memory foam mattress.

Plan a trip to your local mattress store to try lying on the coil mattress vs. the memory foam mattress and see if you don't agree that there's no comparison in comfort levels.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)

"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
