Top Sleep Technology: The Future of Smart Mattresses is Here

You’re going to be sleeping for two to three decades of your life, so it makes sense to invest in quality. There are tons to choose from yet smart mattresses continue to be top contenders for a sleeper’s hard earned money. It’s because of the features associated with memory mattresses as well as the associated technology. The future of comfort is here so get ready for a smart mattress.

Futuristic Technology

Sometimes the smartest advancements seem the simplest. The memory foam technology is not groundbreaking in principle. Actually, it was founded accidentally while exploring ways to make astronauts more comfortable during blastoff. Basically, unlike a traditional mattress, a smart mattress reacts to each situation. So no two sleepers will be accommodated the same yet each sleeper will receive restful sleep.

No Spring Attached

Traditional mattresses have springs or coil systems that are supposed to support the body and provide comfort. However, such a system is inferior to a smart mattress. The entire body of the mattress is made of high-density foam. The foam is slow to give in to body weight yet ultimately returns to form. It’s a delicate balance of giving support where needed and hugging the body in other areas.

Total Foam

Of course, it’s only a matter of time before a successful product gets intimidated. You’ll need to be smart in shopping for smart mattresses, understanding what differentiates a supreme mattress from an inferior one. For one, foam matters. It’s cheaper for imitators to use partial foam rather than produce a mattress made entirely from foam. This is especially true regarding a bed’s core. An insufficient core will make the bed perform poorly in providing comfort for years to come. Read about the difference between quality and inferior models at

Added Weight

Since a quality foam mattress is incredibly dense, it will weigh a lot. As described above, some manufacturers will attempt to cut corners on cost by reducing the amount of foam used within. This should also be a reminder to those who are buying a model in store with intentions of carrying it themselves.

Comfort for All

Unlike a waterbed, a memory mattress can be used by people of all ages. The mattress is safe enough for young people. Moreover, in some cases, mattresses are made with additives that introduce a hypoallergenic quality. The foam’s surface does not disturb allergies or withhold dust and pet hair.

Off Gassing

While a quality mattress poses no threat, an inferior foam pad could emit harmful gas. Be sure your chosen product does not release harmful VOCs. Additionally, some forms of memory foam, such as those associated with gel, should be investigated differently.

Too Dense

While the technology of memory foam hinges upon the material’s ability to ‘bounce back,’ a pad that is too resilient could be a nuisance. It’s best to test your chosen brand of memory foam before making a big investment. While the technology is sound, the ultimate goal of any sleeper should be great sleep.

Hot Enough

Of course, the thought of being cozy is welcome but some people get too hot while sleeping. Some memory mattresses are fitted with ‘sweat wicking’ technology present in warm up gear worn by today’s athletes. While it’s not necessary for some, it’s a great luxury and convenience for those who sweat a lot.

Through the Years

While top tech is great, when you spend money on a mattress that you’re going to use every day, you want to make sure it will last. Durability is a major concern of those who are buying a mattress. Read online reviews and peruse forums for mention of brand names and types of mattresses that can survive through the years.

Real Time

If you’re interested in the cutting edge, biometric mattresses are impressing sleep geeks. Basically, the mattress adjusts itself continuously in real time to ensure the sleeper stays at optimal comfort levels. One model was a winner at the 2017 CES Awards. It’s accommodating to partners too, for it will raise a person’s position when snoring is detected, so a snorer won’t disturb their mate.


What if you need relaxing sounds to get to sleep but that doesn’t appeal to your partner? Wouldn’t it be great if your mattress or pillow was fitted with headphones? It’s an available technology and one that creates a solution for those who need sound to doze off. Could in-pillow technology be better than earbuds or headphones? Time and sleep technology will decide.

    This is excellent information. My mattress is at least 60 years old, probably more, and I could use a new one. I want to check out smart mattresses!

  2. I didn’t realize all the changes that have happened to mattress construction. Thanks for the info.
