IPS3 stands for Individual Pocketed Spring Suspension System.
In IPS3, the coils are placed in individual pockets, unlike the coils in a Bonnell spring or open coil, which are not laced together. This characteristic allows each coil to operate independently to provide a contoured support specific to the user’s body shape and sleeping style. Another well-known feature of the suspension system is its capability to minimize the effect of motion disturbance, which benefits users who share their beds with their loved ones.
Pros: Durable materials and superior comfort
Cons: Sleepers should be equally as interested in the foam that is wrapped around the coil system - if that is low quality, the bed still may be uncomfortable
Pocket springs are individually wrapped coil systems that are stitched into mattresses below a comfort layer of foam or other material. Unlike traditional innerspring systems that are interconnected, pocket springs are entirely independent allowing for added contour and pressure point relief than older innerspring models.
The general rule on pocket coil systems is the more coils, the more responsive and motion controlled the mattress is, while still providing support. This directly translates to more comfort.
In most pocket spring beds, there is a layer of memory foam or latex foam above the pocket spring array so that the sleeper gets both the benefits of contouring foam and the comfort of the pocket springs.
PERFECT BODY SUPPORT
The balanced pressure distribution of the IPS3 mattresses are a sure-fire guarantee for optimal body support, good blood circulation and help prevent pain and stiffness
Latex and Memory Foam used an open cell structure made up of millions of microscopic air bubbles. More than ensuring a flexible mattress, this also promotes constant air circulation
HEALTHY AIR CIRCULATION
The support system ensures the products adapt perfectly to the user’s body contours, which ensures a correct position of the spinal column in every sleeping position.
5Z Support aka 5-Zone Support System
The uppermost part of the body – the head and neck and shoulders – will usually have its own zone consisting of softer foam. This provides contouring for your shoulders, which tend to dig into the mattress with more pressure than other areas of the body.
The other common comfort zone covers your mid-section. This can be your stomach and chest if you sleep on your stomach or your lower and upper back if you sleep on your back.
This zone is usually firmer to provide the necessary spinal support. In other words, it ensures your spine does not bend into an unnatural shape when you sleep.
There is usually another softer zone under the hip and buttocks area. This is another high-pressure point hence needs more contouring.
Finally, there is a firm or medium-firm zone for your lower body which needs more support than contouring.
