What Is Motion Separation?

Mattresses with motion separation are designed to prevent the movement of one person from disturbing the other. This means that you don't have to worry about waking up your sleeping partner every time you climb into or out of bed or change position.

Memory Foam Mattresses with Motion Separation: Memory foam mattresses with motion separation are designed to 'react' or 'move' only in the area where the foam is touched; this is a result of adaptive foam cells designed to conform slowly around the individual directly above them.

Innerspring Mattresses with Motion Separation: Innerspring mattresses with motion separation employ individually-wrapped coils. Just as the name sounds, an individually-wrapped coil is wrapped separately in thin fabric. As opposed to innerspring mattresses wherein each coil is connected to the other, mattresses with individually-wrapped coil technology stop motion from transferring to other coils – making it easy to change your position without disturbing your partner.

Hybrid Mattresses with Motion Separation: Hybrid mattresses feature a combination of innersprings and memory foam – and in hybrid mattresses with motion separation, the motion separation technology comes from both responsive foam cells and individually-wrapped coils.

Why Choose Motion Separation?

A mattress with motion separation technology makes it easy to move without waking up a sleeping partner. For couples used to sharing a mattress without motion separation, switching to a mattress with motion separation can have a dramatic effect on quality of sleep. In a traditional mattress, even tiny movements – from the slightest tossing or turning – can send vibrations from one end of the bed to the other and can be enough to disturb deep sleep. Suddenly waking up due to a partner's movement multiple times through the night on a regular basis can lead to insufficient sleep, heavy physical stress and compromised health over time; switching to a mattress with motion separation makes it easy for you and your partner to get the benefits of deep, uninterrupted sleep on a regular basis.
