Understanding the Science Behind Orthopedic® Mattress

In today’s fast-paced world, back pain is a common problem faced by many people, irrespective of age, gender, and geographical conditions. While our lifestyles are one reason for this, lack of proper sleep and resting on the wrong mattress are other reasons. 

A supportive mattress can go a long way in providing relief from back pain. It is usually termed an Orthopedic® Mattress as it is exclusively designed to support the spine and lumbar region to relieve pain and give you a good night’s sleep. 

In this blog, we’ll find out more about the orthopedic mattress and the science behind it. 

What is an Orthopedic Mattress? 

An orthopedic mattress is a high-quality luxury mattress designed to benefit people with back or joint pains. It provides relief from pain and reduces the frequency of waking up during the night due to excessive pressure on the spine, joints, shoulder, or lower back. It is also recommended for people recovering from injuries or illness. 

It is firmer than regular mattresses. The hardness helps in aligning the surface with your spinal cord instead of pressing into the pressure points to increase pain. The orthopedic mattresses can have an additional top layer if you find it too hard for your taste. The top layer is soft under your skin, while the mattress is firm enough to align with your body contour and support the lower back. 

How is Snoozer Orthopedic® Mattress Made? 

Snoozer is one of the leading mattress brands in India, offering premium handcrafted mattresses for affordable pricing. The company’s Orthopedic mattress is popular among personal users as it provides great back support and spinal alignment. 

Materials Used 

Orthopedic mattresses are made using different materials to ensure adequate firmness. Snoozer’s mattress contains natural and organic cotton and latex to form the layers. Thousands of inner individual coil springs are added to the center to provide the necessary back support irrespective of your weight and sleeping position. All materials used are sourced from partners with 100% organic certifications and are skin-friendly.


The Orthopedic® Mattress is located at the high end of the firmness spectrum (7-9). It will not be cloud-soft or squishy. The mattress will not sink or shift when you sit on it. It will not envelop you as you sleep. This ensures that your spinal cord doesn’t curve at an unnatural angle. Furthermore, it also eliminates the risk of pressing into the pressure points on your shoulders, back, and lumbar/ pelvic region. The coils deep inside flex silently and adjust as you change your sleeping position. 

Spine Alignment 

The best way to get relief from back and joint pains is to ensure that the spine follows its natural alignment even when you sleep. The orthopedic mattress doesn’t sag. It doesn’t dip under your hips or press into the bottom. This eliminates the pressure on the lumbar region and promotes proper blood flow throughout the body. Your body will get the required oxygen to rejuvenate itself and heal from pains or injuries. 

 Zone Support 

Another feature of the orthopedic mattress is zonal support. The mattress is divided into different zones with varying firmness levels. For example, the shoulders need different kinds of support compared to the spine, lower back, or knees. The innerspring coils play a role in zonal support to ensure that each part of your body gets the cushioning it requires, especially the lower back. That way, the mattress will not press into your back despite the firmness but will gently align with the spine.

Sleeping on an Orthopedic Mattress

We use an orthopedic mattress for back pain and for the spine to rest comfortably on a flat surface. It is best suited for those who sleep on their backs and have moderate to heavy weight. 

However, the medium-to-high firmness is not a preferred choice for many sleepers. Lightweight people and side sleepers may feel uncomfortable on a firm mattress as it doesn’t cushion the pressure points. However, adding a soft and thin mattress pad or top layer will make it suitable for all kinds of sleepers. 

Snoozer Orthopedic mattresses also offer temperature control and maintain your body temperature despite the rising heat outside. They have air pockets for breathability and to prevent the mattress (and you) from feeling too warm or sweaty. 

Usage and Durability of Orthopedic Mattress

When properly maintained, a high-quality luxury mattress like Snoozer Orthopedic can last a decade. However, longevity depends on various aspects, like how you use it, exposure to sunlight, maintenance, etc. The mattress costs just Rs. 40/- per night to provide relief from back pain and make you feel refreshed the next morning.
