4X Better Pressure Relief Than Memory Foam

4X Better Pressure Relief Than Memory Foam

When shopping for a new mattress, an important factor to evaluate is pressure relief — that is to say, how well a mattress is able to evenly distribute your body’s load across its surface.   

Mattresses with Poor Support and Pressure Relief Often Lead to Things Like:

  • Soreness and stiffness when getting out of bed
  • “Kinks” in your neck or shoulder
  • Bodily aches and pains feeling worse after a night’s sleep (when they should feel better)
  • Foul mood
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • And more

    Thankfully, Nolah’s revolutionary new foam technology (Nolah AirFoam™) is unmatched in terms of its pressure relief capabilities, compared to conventional or even ultra high-end memory foam. Let’s have a look at high-pressure areas and how Nolah innovative mattress technology outperforms the competition:

     Nolah offer 376% less peak pressure and 22% better pressure relief overall

    Common High-Pressure Areas

    No matter what kind of mattress you sleep on, there are certain areas where more pressure is exerted, due to the weight and positioning of your body’s different joints. The most common high-pressure areas (when lying on your back) are:
    • Hips 
    • Shoulders
    • Lower back
      Armed with this knowledge, we know exactly where to look when it comes to identifying how a given mattress stacks up when it comes to relieving pressure in these areas. Now let’s find out how Nolah provides far superior pressure relief in these areas.

      Introducing Nolah AirFoam® - 4x Times Less Peak Pressure

      Memory foam was initially developed in the 1970’s, but for some reason, still remains the perceived “gold standard” among mattresses. But the truth is, this 40-year-old technology has considerable limitations when it comes to pressure relief.

      That’s why we invented Nolah AirFoam®, using a special compression process that produces BILLIONS of microscopic air bubbles within the foam itself. This creates an unparalleled pressure relief system that can’t be matched by any other mattress, including the $5,000 ultra high-end memory foam you can find in a traditional mattress store.

      To examine how Nolah AirFoam® stacks up against conventional and ultra high-end memory foam, let’s take a look at a comparison of the average pressure and peak pressure of each in a 1024-point sensor-mapped mattress pressure test with the participant lying on their back:

      Nolah AirFoam®



      Ultra High-End Memory Foam



      Conventional Foam




      As you can see, Nolah AirFoam™ significantly outperforms both conventional foam AND even ultra high-end memory foam in terms of average pressure and peak pressure.

      In fact, Nolah AirFoam™ offers 376% less peak pressure on the hip and back area than ultra-high-end memory foam.

      Less Peak Pressure = Less Hips, Shoulder, and Lower Back Pain


      To gain a better understanding of what that actually looks like, let’s examine a side-by-side comparison of the pressure-relief images from the sensor-mapped test:

      Red areas represent areas of higher pressure, with yellow, green, and blue representing areas of decreased pressure. Looking at both conventional and high-end memory foam, you can see they both exert a high amount of pressure in the low back/hip area, whereas Nolah AirFoam™ doesn’t even register as “high-pressure” in that area, which is the highest-pressure area in the entire mattress.

      So there you have it — Nolah’s superior support and pressure relief system (376% less peak pressure and 22% better pressure relief overall compared to even the most high-end memory foams) can not only provide you with a much more comfortable and restful sleep, but can also eliminate aches and pains you might have in your back, neck, shoulders, and hips!

      Nolah's superiority in pressure relief isn’t just a statistical fact, it’s something that you can feel and experience when you sleep on a Nolah mattress. Have a look at what some of our customers have to say about their experience:

      Nolah Customers Agrees - Less Aches and Pains 

      I wasn’t expecting it but a chronic neck pain has improved greatly. I used to wake up with a headache and a painful neck muscle on the right side. MY headaches and neck pain have improved greatly which makes me feel way more rested in the morning.- Lorry N. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

      I have only had the mattress for a week, but I have already noticed a difference in my sleep. Also, no more aches and pains when I wake up in the morning. - Sarah K. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

      With this mattress, I get a very good combination of firm and soft in the same mattress and it still has great support for my back (I suffer from back pains) so all in all I’m very satisfied. - Stan Weber ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

      Very comfortable — we have had it about 2 weeks. We both have back and neck problems and wake up in the morning now feeling well rested and relaxed and in no pain — wonderful!- Dorothy Wolcott ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
