Helix Plus

The Helix Plus mattress was created especially for people who are overweight. The Regular Helix mattress has a weight capacity of up to 250 lbs. A heavier person would find the regular mattress uncomfortable after a prolonged period. The mattress will start to create body impressions and sag. The Helix plus uses high-density foam to prevent Sagging . The foam is a bit more dense than a regular mattress which handles normal weight.

The Helix plus mattress was created for 3 main reasons.

  1. Better Comfort
  2. Better Support
  3. Durability

Comfort was not an issue, at least for the first year when it comes to a regular mattress, even when the person was heavy, but things start changing fast after a year. The mattress surface turns uneven, creating an uncomfortable sleep surface and creating pressure points which lead to pain. Though the mattress was medium firm to start with, it becomes a poorly shaped soft mattress after a year which creates body pain after a year. The Helix Plus mattress is created with 3 layers of foam, specially designed for heavy people. The High-density foam will remain intact even after years of use and provide the same comfort you had the day you purchased it. The encased coil system allows minimum motion isolation while keeping your spine aligned. The high-grade polyfoam layer ensures that the mattress is always supportive.

The Helix Plus uses 3.75 to 4 PCF Foam which is a bit more dense than regular mattress foam. Denser usually means lesser comfort, especially for those who are of regular weight. But for heavy people, a high-density foam creates more support, prolonged comfort and durability. A High-density foam will not create body impressions and sag for years. the high-density foam ensures that you have an even sleep surface for 5 years and more without compromising on comfort or support.

Cooling: The Helix Plus mattress is cool with its Tencel sheets and breathable design. The mattress, with the coil system, has plenty of breathable space. Heat is released and not trapped in the mattress. the upgrade of a GlacioTex fabric from the normal Tencel is optional and comes at a small price. Heavy people cover more space on the mattress and it’s normal for people who are overweight to experience heat-related problems on a mattress. A breathable mattress with a cooling cover can reduce sleep problems. Opt for a glacier cover if you think your heat-related sleep problems are a concern to you.

Firmness: The Helix plus mattress is Medium Firm. They fall under the firmness level of 6 and 7 range. The mattress is perfect for side sleepers.

There are a few drawbacks to the helix plus mattress. Unfortunately, there are no zoned layers. Dedicated lumbar support is lacking. The helix plus mattress is probably not your choice of mattress if you are overweight and suffering from back pain-related problems. It is a great mattress if you are heavy but not the best if you are heavy and have health issues.
