Sleep Undisturbed

Negative Effects of Sleep Disruption

When two people sleep in one bed, they can frequently wake up (40-60 times a night) from motion transfer caused by a partner's tossing and turning. Partner motion can wake us from the deep REM sleep. Not getting that deep REM sleep we need can cause a decrease in alertness, productivity, creativity, problem solving, patience, and overall energy.

If you and your partner find yourselves crowding each other or rolling together into the center of the bed, it may be time to look for a new mattress. The weakening of innerspring or inferior foam creates unsupportive weak spots that can cause these night time collisions.

Mattress Components that Reduce Motion Transfer

Prevent REM sleep disruptions by purchasing a mattress with quality springs or foams, comfort materials, and edge support. Having a mattress that employs core and edge support means you can stretch out without worrying about bumping and waking your partner. Look for mattresses that have these features to ensure that both you and your partner get a good, uninterrupted night's sleep.

Core Mattres Support

Core support technology provides reinforcement in the center third of the mattress, the area where mattress sagging occurs most. Preventing sagging in the center third of the mattress can play a major role in the prevention of motion disruption. Look for mattresses that feature durable quality comfort materials and ones that prevent transfer of motion across the bed.

Mattress Edge Support

Superior Edge Support helps maximize the sleeping surface of your mattress and cuts down on the possiblity of rolling together. Edge support allows you to stretch out without worrying about bumping and waking your partner. Good edge support provides the maximum sleeping area from one edge of the bed to the other, creating more space between partners.
