How long does the average mattress retain its support and comfort? That question remains unanswered, but Oklahoma State University did a study by having their participants sleep on mattresses 5 years old or older and then new ones. The average age of the old mattresses were 9.5 years old. They used the same set of variables for old and new mattresses. Through the university’s research they found that a new mattress improved sleep quality by 62%, sleep comfort by 70.8%, reduced back pain by 55.3%, and back stiffness by 50.7% over a four-week period. The reduction in pain and improvement in sleep became even more prominent over time. Oklahoma State University also studied the participants’ stress levels on their old mattress and again on their new mattress. They found that both stress behavior and symptoms were greatly reduced. Additionally, a follow up after six months indicated that the stress levels remained as low as or lower than those recorded a month after the introduction of the new mattress. Oklahoma State University’s findings overall strongly suggest that a new mattress system can significantly improve sleep variables and that continuous and sustained sleep quality may be dependent on timely replacement of mattress systems.
Most of us do recognize the importance of a good mattress system for improved health, but a lot of us don’t have the budget to spend $4500 or more on a mattress we think will give us that good night’s sleep. What people don’t realize is they don’t have to spend as much as they think to get a high quality mattress. Why do you think some of those mattresses are so expensive? Do you think it’s because it’s better made or has higher quality materials? Actually, those more well known, expensive brands cost more due to advertising dollars. They spend so much on advertising that the money has to come from somewhere and that is usually by charging more for the mattress. There are high quality, comparable mattresses out there for sale that offer similar benefits for a fraction of the cost. The reason being they don’t spend their money on advertising, but on creating a high quality mattress and then relying on the furniture store to sell the mattress for them.
