Coils VS Foam
Individually wrapped coils are the most popular coil support system on the market. They offer a weightless, buoyant feel, but with all of the pressure relieving, motion separating benefits of an all foam core. Many people prefer the feel of a wrapped coil support system because it offers bi-directional support by both absorbing weight and pushing back to instantly conform to your body and relieve pressure across your entire body.
All foam support systems (or tempurpedic style memory foam) offer great pressure relief and no motion transfer. All foam support systems tend to have a more solid, sturdy feel. They don’t push back against your body or have the “give” of a traditional innerspring mattress. Rather they provide lasting, conforming support to your entire body and have a stable, solid, supportive feel.
Both wrapped coils and all foam support systems do not transfer motion so you can sleep soundly throughout the night without being disturbed by your partner. Studies have shown that sleep helps your muscles and skin heal and replenish themselves so they remain healthy and nourished. By relieving pressure points on your body at night, wrapped coils and all foam support systems allow your blood to circulate and flow more efficiently, bringing needed oxygen and nourishment to cells throughout your body.
Removing pressure points also reduces tossing and turning at night by preventing blood to stagnate in high pressure areas, which sends a signal to your brain telling your body to move. When you toss and turn at night, you subtly wake yourself up and pull yourself out of the most rejuvenating and healthy levels of sleep.
In terms of comfort, wrapped coils and all foam support systems both provide amazing pressure relief and comfort, but offer 2 distinct feels and ways of reducing pressure. Neither is “better than” the other, it really comes down to your personal preference.
