Reflex foam is a name given to a type of medium-firm high density polyurethane foam. It is often used for orthopaedic mattresses,

and is a cheaper alternative to memory foam. Although it shares the same ‘spring back into shape’

characteristic of memory foam (hence the ‘reflex’) it is important to distinguish the differences between the two materials

as they are by no means the same product.

Reflex foam, like memory foam, is also high density but is constructed in a different way with larger bubbles.

When pressure is applied to theses bubbles, they act in a similar way to water in a balloon – the air does not escape, and

instead is displaced ‘sideways’. Once pressure is relieved, the bubbles spring back into shape and the mattress regains its shape.

It’s for this reason that the reflex foam mattress is popular as an orthopaedic mattress, as it offers a firm but comfortable mattress option.

Reflex foam is also commonly used as a supportive layer in many memory foam mattresses. Benefits of a reflex foam mattress:

•firm orthapeadic feel •cheaper than memory foam •helps to keep spinge aligned •no need to turn •dust mite resistant

The main difference in feel you'll find with a reflex foam mattress, is that you don't experience that 'sinking' like you do with memory foam.

However, it still has that 'bounce back' quality.
