Why our sleep experts loved it
The Coolflex ProPosture™ Ortho Foam Mattress is a new mattress from the bed specialists Coolflex, sold through the popular bedding retailer Mattress Next Day. Research shows that while CoolFlex is a UK based brand that has been trading for a number of years, amassing a large number of reviews across a reasonably large range mattresses. The ProPosture mattress adds to the range by giving customers a clear choice for those who need additional support through orthopaedic and posture related issues (hence the name).
So who exactly is this mattress going to suit? Back sleepers primarily as side sleepers typically need a bit more softness in their support layer than this extra firm tension will deliver. In fact, this product is going to be fairly niche, not just because of the back sleeper qualities, rather that the firmness is considered specialist and should be considered primarily if you have been recommended to purchase an extra firm mattress for benefits like neck and back support.
Moving on to who the mattress won't suit, well that's quite easy. Almost everyone else not featured above. See, side sleepers need to be able to sink into the product, their shoulders and hip need to sink further than other parts of the body to avoid strain and uneven body contouring which are not things you will get from an extra firm support like this.
The Coolflex ProPosture™ Ortho Foam Mattress is remarkably well priced given its orthopaedic credentials. As such we can expect sales to be strong in the budget price point that it finds itself in. The price point makes sense too as the product is pretty much just a block of foam and a cover and so there are not many ancillary costs in manufacturing that would normally get passed onto the consumer. Don't let that put you off however, as the reviews are in and customers rate the performance of this product highly. On top of the strong customer feedback the manufacturer has also backed the product with a 5 year guarantee which goes beyond the average for this segment and shows you just how much faith they have in their product.
From a firmness perspective, we would rate this product a 9/10 meaning it is very firm and feels almost board-like to the touch. If this is what you are looking for then you should find this mattress will suit your needs.
Customer reviews are another area where the ProPosture shines, with 70+ reviews at the time of writing with only 1 negative review garnered in this time which aptly mentions that the mattress is "rock hard" which is in line with expectations for this type of product and if anything, a ringing endorsement. Other customers say much the same thing with comments around the good nights sleep and board like comfort helping with customers back back and other ailments.
