My arthristis gets more painful each time I try to sleep on my Satbed and now my doctor insists I get a new mattress. Based on his talks with doctors and his other patients, what he has recommended I look into is the following; 1-a mattress that has 3’ of 5.3 high density to absorb my joint pain. I am a side sleeper and he wants softness around my shoulders and pelvis area and anything less seems to cause many larger patients a lot of pain. Under the memory foam nothing too firm, more of a medium quality followed by some firmness. Due to my weight he feels a mattress between 11’’ - 12’’ in hight would be good… I read everything you had and to try to put a mattress that would help me is very difficult. Every premade bed did not have these qualifications and the custom made mattresses are very expensive to put together and most of the time they do not have what I need to help my joint pain. I have put together some layers based on what I read here. I would like your input if I have an understanding about the information you provide. BED #1 3’’ 0f 5.3’’ High Density Memory Foam, 3’’ OR 2’’ of ILD 14’‘-28’’ TALALAY LATEX AND 5’‘- 7’’ OF ILD 38’‘-44’’ LATEX OR OF 2.5 LBS CUBIC FT. OF High Resiliency polyfoam with the required support factor. Am I close for a medium firm mattress? i am confused if I am told I am getting 2.5 lbs cubic feet of High Resiliency how to I calculated the sag factor or required support factor? to help with my pain as a side sleeper the mattress should be medium-firm.
I would like to comment on the Satbed. The main reason I purchased it was their information on a NYC hospital using their Satbed. I just recently spoke to someone who had contacted the hospital and all they would tell them was that any bed they purchase is made to order not purchased as is. A very big lie by a company that uses multiply websites to sell the exact same bed. It does contain a Dial to turn to get the right feeling for your body, but is not electrical. In addition you put it all together and if there is a problem they tell you it is your issue since you put it together probably wrong. If that is 3’’ of memory foam it must be a high density of 2 lbs per cubic ft and a very short 3’'. In addition, the foam that surrounds the chambers are of very poor quality and within a short time if you sit in acertain spot on the edge or get up on the same side you will see it sag. This happened to me even before my trial period was over and was one of my conplaints.
