The mattress your patient sleeps on can have a big effect on how well he or she sleeps. Consider these tips from Dr Frank Lipman for how to choose the right bed.
You’ll want to avoid spring mattresses, as the components are generally the lowest quality on the market. Spring mattresses are also the biggest culprit of triggering pressure points, especially with the loss in support that occurs after just a few years of use.
Natural and organic latex mattresses are durable and work well for a clean air environment, but they fall short when it comes to properly supporting your body and reducing those pressure points.
Memory foam is a material that gives you all the body support benefits but without the clean air benefits of natural latex.
