New mattress vs latex topper for a memory foam hospital bed.

Ruby writes:

Hi Pete,

My 135 pound husband has a drive medical hospital bed 36″ X 80″. 
The mattress given with the bed was memory foam. 
The problem we’re having is that every morning his bottom has imprinted itself in the mattress, creating a hole that he can’t climb out of. 
I don’t know whether topping the mattress would be sufficient or I need a whole new mattress. 
I also don’t know whether a innerspring mattress or a latex mattress or some other substance of mattress is best. 
The only thing I know is that the memory foam mattress is unsatisfactory. 
I have used a latex mattress for years and am OK with it but haven’t been able to find one in the size that fits the bed.
I’m open for suggestions.
Thanks, Ruby
Hi Ruby,

Memory foam mattresses aren’t usually made of all memory foam.

Normally, the memory foam is supported by firmer poly foam, which isn’t temperature sensitive and doesn’t allow you to sink.

So, the first thing to do, is to flip that mattress over.

Once flipped, it may be perfectly fine, requiring you to purchase nothing.

Or, it may be a little too firm for him to sleep on comfortably.

If that is the case, you can then add a soft latex topper to that.

Here is the link to the latex toppers I can get for you in that size.

The EverEden 2″ Soft Talalay should be all you need.

It is a custom size, so the price is a bit higher…starting off with the Twin Extra Long price of $299.99, and adding 25% to that for a total of $375.00
