Correct back support is of tremendous importance in helping to keep your spine in correct alignment. Choosing a mattress with a surface that relieves pressure points helps to reduce tossing and turning, and gives you a better night's sleep.
One such mattress type is memory foam. Memory foam was originally developed by NASA to decrease the high pressure caused by the extreme g-force occurring during the take-off of the space shuttle.
It is often seen as a good compromise between the comfort of a soft mattress and the supportiveness of a firm one. Memory foam mattresses often sell for more money than traditional mattresses but they last longer.
