The Ameena Mattress

November 1, 2016

The Ameena Mattress room scene

After 16 years researching and selling mattresses, US-Mattress has taken their expertise and created their very own mattress from the ground up. We set out to create a high-quality mattress at a great value and with a versatile comfort. The result is the Ameena mattress. This foam-based mattress combines three different materials in a logical way to provide enough cushioning for side sleepers, and enough support for back and stomach sleepers. The goal was to create a mattress that everyone could enjoy, taking the hassle out of mattress shopping. Not to mention the Ameena mattress has a very affordable price tag for all standard sizes.

The materials that make up the Ameena mattress are Energex Foam, Thermaphase Gel Memory Foam, and Breathable Base Foam. Energex Foam provides pressure relief to reduce tossing and turning, promote deep REM sleep, and improve blood circulation. Energex Foam is also 50% more durable than memory foam! The next layer is composed of Thermaphase Gel Memory Foam. This layer is designed to help you sleep cool, dissipating much more heat than standard memory foam. Lastly, the Breathable Base Foam layer provides the deep-down support your back needs. This layer is also breathable to help regulate temperature, and adapts to all body types.

Whether you are looking for a quick and affordable solution for your dorm room this semester, or a lasting mattress that your whole family can enjoy, the Ameena mattress is a great solution. The Ameena mattress was designed to fulfill the desires of every kind of mattress shopper, whether you want an easy buying process, a near-universal comfort, or an affordable value, the Ameena delivers. It also comes backed by one of the best warranties and return policies in the industry.

However, if you are in the market for a mattress with a specific extreme comfort such as very firm or very soft, or a top-end model from a luxury brand like Hastens or Stearns & Foster, then the Ameena may not satisfy your preferences. But you can be confident that the hundreds of other mattresses available at US-Mattress.com will include exactly what you’re looking for, whether or not the Ameena mattress is it!

What is the difference between memory foam and latex mattresses?

July 19, 2016

Memory foam and latex are the two cutting edge comfort materials in the mattress industry today. You may hear the terms “memory foam mattress” and “latex mattress” thrown around a lot in the same context, which can make it hard to decipher any meaningful differences between the two. In the video above, our mattress expert Jed explains and demonstrates the main differences between memory foam and latex. To reiterate, memory foam allows you to sink in for excellent body contouring that cradles the body and relieves pressure points. Some people dislike the sinking feeling of memory foam, likening it to quicksand, while others love the full-body contouring. Latex provides similar pressure relief and body contouring, but responds much faster with gentle push-back that avoids the sinking feeling of memory foam. Some other minor differences between these two materials are memory foam tends to be cheaper, latex tends to sleep cooler, and some types of latex use natural ingredients while memory foam is always artificial foam.

Whether you prefer memory foam, latex, or even the metal springs of a traditional innerspring mattress, US-Mattress has the best deals on name brand mattresses like Serta, Sealy, and Tempur-Pedic.


Adopt a dog this summer!

June 16, 2016
Lucky Ducky is a 3-year-old Beagle-Basset mix. He is a little shy and nervous, and may take some time to warm up to you, but once he does, Lucky Ducky will make a sweet and low-maintenance companion. He would be a great fit for a quieter home and someone who has the time and patience to help build his confidence.

Cody is a 1-year-old Shepherd mix. He is lots of fun, and has lots of playful energy, the perfect fit for a more active household that likes to spend time outdoors and go for runs and walks. Cody likes to explore, likes to meet people, and would appreciate a big backyard to run around in.

Lanaki is a 5-month-old Pitbull. She has lots of playful energy, loves people, and has lived with dogs in the past. She will get a little bigger. She is super friendly, and would make a great playmate for another active dog.

Amos is a 3-year-old Red-Boned Coon Hound. He is full-grown and very friendly. Amos would do well with an active family that would enjoy taking him on walks in the woods and playing with him outside. He is a lovable, handsome, and really cool dog.

Pughuahua is a 5-year-old Pug-Beagle mix or maybe Pug-Chihuahua mix. He is really friendly and likes people. He has an overall easygoing personality suitable for a low-key home. Pughuahua likes to sit in laps, and is certainly a snuggler.

If none of these dogs are a good fit for your home, you can still share this post to help spread the word and get them adopted! And don’t forget that as an added bonus, we’ll give a free pet bed to the family that adopts any one of these pups. If you can’t adopt a dog right now, but still want to help, consider donating. US-Mattress will match your donation dollar for dollar to help the MHS continue their great work in and around Metro Detroit.


Interesting Sleep in the Animal Kingdom

June 8, 2016

As a major contributor to the Michigan Humane Society, it is no secret that US-Mattress is full of animal lovers. We of course care about how our customers sleep, but we also want to help cats, dogs, and other furry friends sleep safely and comfortably. Sleep is something shared across virtually the entire animal kingdom, and there are some truly unique and utterly strange sleep habits out there. Here are a few!

Unihemispheric Sleep

Unihemispheric sleep refers to each hemisphere of the brain sleeping independently of the other. Animals that are capable of unihemispheric sleep are able to put half of their brain to sleep while the other half remains awake and alert. This system of sleep allows animals to get sleep while remaining alert of predators, migrating non-stop, and swimming. Some examples of unihemispheric sleepers are beluga whales, dolphins, sea lions, mallard ducks, and even domestic chickens!

Sea Otter Anchors

You’ve probably seen images of otters floating on their backs and holding hands. This practice is believed to keep them from floating away while they’re unconscious. But did you know some otters have even been found to secure themselves with seaweed before drifting off to sleep? If any animal wins the “cutest sleeping practice” award it probably has to be otters. Whether holding hands or tying themselves down, otters can sleep safely in the water knowing they won’t float away.

Mattress Makers

It is pretty common for animals to “make beds” or “bed down,” but orangutans probably take this farther than any other species aside from us. Birds make pretty cool nests, polar bears dig dens for hibernating, and deer will bed down on tall grass, but orangutans will actually find materials to bend and even weave into comfortable mattresses. While other animals may choose or use features of their environment as a bed, and animals like birds build “homes,” orangutans seem to stand apart for making complex and specialized mattresses specifically for sleeping comfort.

Dolphins

The winner of extreme animal sleeper is probably the dolphin. Not only do species of dolphins practice unihemispheric sleep, but it is thought that dolphin mothers sleep very little, if at all, for weeks after giving birth. Having to worry about predators, continue swimming, and come to the surface to breathe, unihemispheric sleep is very beneficial just to survive. But when watching over a newborn who is slower, smaller, and especially vulnerable to predation, observation has suggested that the mother stays active with only time for brief fragments of sleep at best for as much as three weeks. And you thought your newborn kept you up at night…
