Best mattress to absorb movement

Lia Maxwell asked
1st September 2016

My husband has Periodic Limb Movement Disorder – which is like restless legs – but can involve all parts of the body and can cause shaking movement every 20 to 40 seconds over a period of hours. When we are on holiday and sleep in beds with two separate mattresses – some zipped, some not- I find I am far less bothered by his movement. So I have been looking for zip link beds. I have also been told that any proper pocket sprung mattress should absorb his movement, and I don’t need separate mattresses. He gets quite hot while asleep, and this sometimes worsens his condition. Can you make some recommendations for us? We are both 5 foot 4 and not overweight. Any information is greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks,
Lia Maxwell

Hi Lia

Thank you for your question.

A good pocket spring unit will cut down a lot of movement in a mattress, but if someone is very restless, and disturbs the other sleeper, then a zip link mattress is the most you can do, to cut down on that transference of movement.

If your husband is a very warm sleeper, then you need to have a mattress with natural fibre fillings, as these create the coolest beds.

I would recommend that you take a look at the Artisan Naturals or Artisan Bespoke 004 in our ranges, these have a nice medium feel in the comfort layers, not too soft or too firm.

You do not mention your body weights, so you would need to decide upon your spring tension.
