Throughout history, orthopedic mattresses had changed a lot. But their main function remained the same. They are supposed to support your spine and joints, while simultaneously providing comfortable night’s sleep. However, the term “orthopedic” became more of a marketing trick used by manufacturers to sell the products. This is possible because there is no clear legal regulation which obliges the manufacturers to provide evidence of the orthopedic effects of their products. The best way to ensure that you are buying a good orthopedic mattress is to check if the manufacturer offers a warranty.
This is the list of the best 7 orthopedic mattresses in all price-ranges, based on real experiences from customers around the world.
