1. Emma Select Smart Mattress
|• Adaptable, open-pored AquaGEL foam
• Removable and washable cover
• Reduced motion transfer
|• Sleepers looking for added body support
• Most sleeping positions
One of the mattresses in the Emma Select range is their Smart mattress that is designed to offer excellent body support to those who need it, even when changing their sleeping position throughout the night. It features HRX foam layers both as top and base layers, which are meant to provide pressure relief in critical spots, such as around the hips and in the shoulder area.
The HRX foam base layer is also zoned, which is made to help keep the sleeper's spine correctly aligned while sleeping and thus prevent future back problems. On top of the base layer sits an open-pored AquaGEL foam layer that is meant to adapt to the sleeper's body for a more ergonomic sleep. The hybrid version also features a pocket spring core apart from the previously mentioned foam layers. If you're looking for a bit more bounce in your mattress, the hybrid version might be a good pick for you.
For practical reasons the cover of this mattress comes with handles for easy manoeuvering, is removable and washable at 40ºC.
2. Emma Select Helix Mattress
|• Airflow vents to let hot air out
• Helix foam with continuous zoning
• Body-contouring Visco foam
|• Hot sleepers
• Restless sleepers
• People in need of improved spinal alignment
If you are a hot sleeper looking for a mattress that can help to regulate your temperature while sleeping, the Emma Helix from the Select range could be just the one for you. This mattress is designed to optimise breathability thanks to its various channels of airflow, such as the two zoned foam layers as well as airflow vents to let the hot air out of the mattress.
The second layer of this mattress uses advanced Helix foam that is continuously zoned, which can also help with spinal alignment. The base layer is made of HRX foam with a grooved core in order to add even more breathability to the mattress and to provide pressure relief to the sleeper. The top layer is made of adaptive Visco foam and works together with the HRX foam to further enhance pressure relief while offering comfortable body contouring. For added breathability, to your Helix mattress you could opt for the hybrid version which also features a core layer of pocket springs. This can allow for even more airflow through the mattress, helping to keep you cooler at night.
The Emma Helix also comes with a removable and washable cover that has handles on the side for you to easily flip your mattress. The bottom also has an anti-slip coating in order for your Helix mattress to stay safely in place.
3. Emma Select Diamond Mattress
|• Diamond degree graphite foam
• Can help prolong deep sleep phases
• Enhanced body support and pressure relief
|• Sleepers with a larger budget
• Hot sleepers
• Persons looking for reduced motion transfer
The Emma Diamond mattress has, according to the brand, been engineered for those looking for an even deeper and more regenerating sleep. It's the most luxurious member of the Emma Select range and comes at a higher price point as it contains a layer of diamond degree graphite foam. This layer features a technology that includes graphite particles that are meant to dissipate excess heat from the sleeper's body out of the mattress.
This can help the sleeper achieving the ideal body temperature quicker and also prolong the deep sleep phases, making the sleeper waking up feeling more rested. There are also two additional foam layers in this mattress. One is an adaptive comfort foam that is designed to provide pressure relief and one zoned HRX foam layer for additional body support and enhanced spinal alignment. Finally a core pocket spring layer for added breathability and bounce effect.
The Emma Diamond also comes with a removable cover that is machine washable up to 40ºc and features the side handles commonly seen on Emma mattresses which come in handy when you want to rotate your mattress.
