In this REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress review, you’ll find out what makes up the mattress, what its features are and what makes this mattress different from the rest.
Heres a quick intro - the REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress is a 4 layer, hybrid and award-winning mattress. Filled with 2000 premium ortho springs and a cool top foam layer, so, this could be our coolest review yet.
All jokes aside, let’s get into the REM-Fit 500 ortho mattress review (SUMMARY AT THE END).
REM-Fit 500 Ortho Mattress Construction
The REM-Fit 500 Ortho Mattress is a hybrid design, this means it has springs and memory foam. Not just any springs and not just any foam, this mattress has 4 layers of comfort and the cover. Starting with the cover, which is a silky soft material made from REM-Fit’s exclusive thermo-regulating RE-AX fabric. The RE-AX cover is breathable, removable and washable.
A top cool open-cell zoned memory foam layer. This layer was designed to mould to your body and regulate temperature. This layer is zoned which means it has channelled cut-outs to allow for the bonier or extruding areas of the body to sink better and align the spine. This is all to create a floating feeling while you sleep.
The REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress has 2000 extra firm encapsulated pocket springs, designed to move individually and always provide support. Included towards the base, is the foam encapsulating walls, that provide edge-to-edge support around the springs. This ensures the mattress won’t sag on the edges. Finally, the REM-Fit 500 Ortho Mattress has a high-density foam base that the rest of the mattress rests upon.
Being a UK based company, REM-Fit must and do comply with regulations during manufacturing. The mattresses from REM-Fit are Certipur certified, which is a set of European safety, health and the environment regulations.
REM-Fit 500 Ortho Mattress Cover
As previously stated, the REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress cover is made from REM-Fit’s very own thermo-regulating RE-AX knitted fibres. With the thermo-regulating fibres, you can rest easy knowing that you won’t heat up. This creates a silky soft feel to ‘cover’ your mattress. The cover is removable and machine washable, this makes it more convenient to clean and helps keep the cover fresh.
The REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress cover is also hypoallergenic, this means that it's very unlikely to cause the sniffles or upset your sinuses.
Our Review on the REM-Fit Natural Mattress boasts quite an extraordinary cover if you want to check that one out too.
REM-Fit 500 Ortho Mattress Layers
1. Zoned Memory Foam (5cm)
This layer is all about keeping you comfortable and at a balanced sleep temperature. The cool open-cell memory foam (which is 30x more breathable than standard memory foam) is REM-Fit’s answer to sweaty memory foam properties. By producing a foam with more air pockets, the memory foam not only moulds to your body but is also is thermoregulating, meaning you won’t heat up while being ‘hugged’ by the memory foam.
This layer is also "zoned" for comfort and relieve pressure, especially for the bonier and extruding areas of your body. The Mediflex creates a feeling of floating and will help release pressure around the hips and shoulder area.
2. Encapsulated Pocket Springs Layer (14cm)
With 2000 extra firm encapsulated springs, the REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress provides excellent firm back support and comfort, these are full-sized springs and not mini springs like many hybrid mattresses have.
Each spring moves independently, meaning that as you move you are always supported and when your restless partner moves, you won’t. The individual springs allow for you to switch positions while sleeping, they simply support and respond to your movements in an immediate fashion.
3. Edge-To-Edge Support Layer (14cm)
The encapsulated foam walls sit above the base layer and surround the springs. This layer keeps tension across the mattress so that the edges do not sag. This means you won’t roll off the edge and can even sit on the edge. The design adds to the lifespan of the mattress and keeps is stable.
4. Dense Base Layer (4cm)
The final layer is the foundation of the mattress. The high-density foam layer is designed to provide a strong, sturdy and long-lasting foundation for your mattress. The base allows the REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress to support your weight for 15 years at least.
How Thick Is the REM-Fit 500 Ortho Mattress?
The REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress is 25cm thick, which is the industry standard. That way you can rest assured your current bedsheets should fit. The REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress can also hold up to 40 stone combined weight (20 stone per sleeper) and can hold that weight for up to 15 years.
REM-Fit 500 Ortho Mattress Firmness
The REM-Fit 500 Ortho Mattress is a firm feel mattress, designed to be as supportive as possible, it is also suited for those who complain about backaches. For this REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress review, we have situated it at about an 8 out of 10 for firmness, making it one of the firmest mattresses we have reviewed.
Aesthetics and Design
The REM-Fit 500 Ortho mattress has a white cover, with two coloured strips around the base. The colours come to a point on the corner of the mattress. Grey base colour, followed by a light and deep blue. This looks really neat in our opinion, this gives it a modern recovery looking vide which I'm sure is what they are going for.
