As a consumer it is important to educate yourself when shopping for a mattress. Not only are mattresses expensive they do require the consumer to educate themselves to some extent as price alone is not the best way to compare products. The Mattress Industry in general has many sales people that are inexperienced in terms of sleep, mattress products, and technology. Unfortunately the consumer won't be helped or informed from such an experience, rather the consumer become more confused. This is due to the fact that are so many mattresses you can choose from and no single person has vast knowledge on all the different brands and products. Most sales people regurgitate what manufactures themselves do not understand the questions and concerns consumers have. Manufactures end up marketing their products incorrectly as information on Gel Products and marketing methods methods are speculative when sales people talk about gel memory foam. Today we hear many shoppers looking for GEL. Gel is a buzz word that has really no meaning over traditional memory foam, other than the fact it is blue in color. It is suggested by gel foam manufactures that their beds sleep cooler. Well there has never been scientific evidence to back up this information up yet consumers and sales people alike can be recited gel as cooling to nearly every shopper. As a consumer do you think its important to know the truth?
After working in the Mattress Industry for over 15 years I can tell you that most companies and most sales people are not passionate about sleep. They have been more concerned with selling low quality products for higher profits. They can careless and will regurgitate whatever is asked of them without being the credible sales person who do not tell their customers lies. They should be helping their customer find the best mattress that is right for them. There is only one product that is endorsed by over a million doctors, and that company is Tempur-Pedic. They are the only ones that have a proprietary foam that is both patented and effective for sleepers beyond traditional memory foam or spring beds. This TEMPUR technology is beyond all other mattress technologies in the industry. This is proven by how durable Tempurpedic mattresses are. One of the most important investments in your life will be your mattress, but why do Tempur-Pedic mattresses cost more? The reason is simple, it works reliably, it is durable, it offers pressure relief better than other mattresses, and lastly usually last over twice as long than an ordinary high quality memory foam mattress. The typical length of time you can get mileage out of your Tempur-Pedic is usually 10-20 years. All other mattresses in the industry no matter how much you pay, or what kind of quality you thing you purchased, all other mattresses available typically only last 5-8 years before you must replace them regardless of brand name. If your mattress can last closer to the 8 year period you did do a good job. This is why there is a price difference.
The Gel buzz has never been scientifically proven. The only technology that works and is scientifically proven is the Breeze material from Tempur-Pedic, a phase changing material that is clinically proven to help you sleep cooler and to put you to sleep 15 minutes quicker each and every night. This is real technology that surpasses the smoke and mirrors of the Gel memory foam story in the industry. When consumers tout about Gel its very obvious to me they have been sold and flattery than real technology. I only knock Gel foams when consumers think the product is superior to regular memory foam. Tempur foam is still superior to any Gel infused memory foam and it has not gel in it.
Here are some videos that I would like to share that help you make the choice. If you cannot afford to get the very best then a gel memory foam mattress will be good enough, but as a consumer you must realize there is a difference and it is significant.
