ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the claim of Leggett & Platt Inc. in the U.S. that innerspring mattresses offer a cooler sleep to its consumers than non-innerspring sleep surfaces. The company states that a study shows that innerspring mattresses provide cooler and a more comfortable sleep enviroment because their surfaces cool faster. Moreover, thermal imaging studies found an initial cooling rate of about 40% greater than foam or air core mattresses.
