Why our sleep experts loved it
The iGel™ Advance 2050i Mattress features a premium, high-tech material at it's core: Graphene. When you sleep, the body releases lactic acid and carbon dioxide. This is the process that builds up muscle fatigue and creates wrinkles - which is why you want to have a mattress that can regulate temperature. The Graphene in iGel™ technology acts like a heat sink, absorbing the body's heat and transferring it to the surrounding air.
As a result, your skin will feel cooler and more comfortable all night long. The technology also works in reverse: when you sleep on an iGel™-enabled mattress, the mattress cools down, absorbing your body's heat and circulating it through the mattress with every movement. As a result, your body will stay cool and fresh throughout the night. As well as regulating temperature, iGel™ technology helps provide pressure relief against aches and pains so you can get to sleep faster.
This technology is unique to the iGel range and isn't available elsewhere. Further to the impressive iGel on offer, you also get an impressive 2050 pocket springs that are better than traditional open coil springs found in lesser quality mattresses. With pocket springs, the more the better with 1000 being typical for most mattresses. More springs does not equate to a firmer mattress, rather, just better body contouring and support.
In this instance, the iGel Advance 2050i Mattress is a medium tension mattress, making it ideal for those looking for something that is soft (thanks to the iGel) yet firmer (thank to the pocket springs specified tension). Best suited to those looking for an all rounder that will satisfy both side sleepers and back sleepers alike.
