The Healing Company, online at Healco.com, produces a few affordable memory foam mattresses. In the case of the Inspiration mattress and bed set, the Healing Company uses about 3 inches of fairly soft 4-lb memory foam. Since the memory foam is rated at about 4-lb per cubic foot, it should not be noticeably responsive to changes in temperature like the mode dense 5-lb memory foams would be. This should help you get comfortable more quickly. The Healing Company uses a wicking cover called SleepDry. SleepDry features a quilted look and should help to pull heat and moisture away from your skin.
One of the primary differences in the Inspiration bed from The Healing Company is the HRC memory foam. The HRC memory foam contains several channels across the surface of the bed, which are designed to allow air to circulate as you sleep. This design is intended to work with the SleepDry cover for maximum effectiveness. While the HRC foam and SleepDry cover seem to be good ideas, we were not able to test this bed for effectiveness.
One of the many properties of memory foam is its ability to contain motion. Transferred motion, from your partner moving for example, can have a detrimental impact on the quality of your sleep. All memory foam beds will work to reduce or eliminate this transference of motion, thereby helping you sleep more soundly. Also, memory foam is naturally hypoallergenic and can help with nighttime breathing problems such as asthma.
The Healing Company Inspiration bed is priced at about $900 for a queen set at the Healing Company’s Website, Healco.com. This price includes the custom queen foundation and delivery. With an overall plush rating due to the additional inch of memory foam compared to the Feather-Pedic, it seems like the Inspriation may be a good buy.
