May 3rd, 2021 | Tempur Quality

Tempur® material was famously first devised by NASA to help cushion astronauts against the incredible G-forces that they experience during take-off and landing. It’s unique properties and unparalleled ability to absorb movement and force, made this product an instant success and it wasn’t long before scientists realised its potential in the bedroom. 

With its viscoelastic design, Tempur® material was perfect for use in mattresses. Capable of conforming and responding to the body, Tempur® is the ideal choice for reducing partner disturbance. 


What is partner disturbance? 

If you’ve ever shared a bed with somebody, then you’ll likely have experienced the annoyance of being woken by them in the middle of the night as they roll over, or get up to get a glass of water. For many couples, sleeping together can be challenging, although there are a variety of practical reasons why they may still choose to do so. Many couples simply appreciate the feeling of safety and security that they get when sharing a bed. 

Unfortunately, it’s all too common to find that your mattress shakes, wobbles or bounces beneath you when your partner is moving around. Most traditional spring mattresses will transfer at least a little bit of motion, which can cause you to wake up again and again throughout the night. Those with partner’s that tend to toss and turn a lot, or who stick to a different work schedule, will usually find that their sleep quality is considerably poorer because of it. 

With a Tempur® mattress you’ll enjoy a better night’s sleep and almost no partner disturbance. In fact, studies have shown that Tempur® material produces less than 3% motion transfer, far less than the motion transfer rate of other memory foam or visco-elastic mattresses and much less than the motion transfer that you will experience on a spring mattress.


Reducing partner disturbance

Sleep disruption can be a big problem. Not only will it leave you feeling grumpy and tired when you wake up, but it can also be a sign of a more serious underlying issue. If you or your partner is tossing and turning at night, snoring or waking up feeling sore and achy, then your mattress may be the culprit. Tempur® material is designed to address and alleviate many of the issues that cause sleep disturbance. It’s pressure relieving material perfectly melds to your body, relieving pressure on your joints and muscles for a more comfortable sleep - which means less tossing and turning. It gives a feeling of complete weightlessness and won’t sag, sink or warp over time - ensuring you find the proper spinal alignment every night for a deeper, more restful night’s sleep. 

Best of all? Tempur® mattresses are flexible enough to be paired with adjustables bases. On a split-king, couples sleeping next to each other can easily control their sleeping positions, even independently adjusting incline for maximum reduction of partner disturbance.
