Mattresses are integral to our lives because they provide much-needed comfort and support when sleeping. However, every mattress does not give you optimal relief from back pain. Therefore, doctors recommend such patients to use orthopedic beds.
The Sleep Company and Duroflex are excellent Orthopedic mattresses that help relieve recurring back pain. This article compares these two beds and discusses their benefits and drawbacks.

Who would love these beds?
Sleep Company Ortho is the right bed for you if you have chronic back pain issues. It might be expensive, but doctors recommend a medium firm bed like the Sleep Company Ortho for better relief. On the other hand, consumers with milder recurring back problems can opt for the Duroflex Livein.
Side sleepers can choose memory foam beds like the Duroflex Livein because the memory foam adjusts to their body shapes and provides perfect spinal alignment.
Both these beds are comfortable while sitting on them for extended hours and working on their laptops. Similarly, restless sleepers can rest assured that they do not disturb their partners when sleeping on these beds.
Who fares better avoiding these beds?
Stomach sleepers can find the Sleep Company and Duroflex Ortho beds uncomfortable because they rank as medium-Firm.
Comparison – Layer-by-layer
The Sleep Company Ortho mattress is different from other beds because of its unique patented SmartGRID technology. This layer has more than 2500 air channels to allow free air circulation.
The high-resilient support foam constitutes a significant proportion of this bed. Hence, it has the ideal firmness required for an orthopedic bed.
The transition foam layer offers the necessary bounciness to add to your comfort levels. However, this layer is not available on the 5-inch beds.
The breathable cover protects the bed but accumulates dust, making it challenging to clean.
On the other hand, the Duroflex Livein mattress has a firm support layer, followed by a pressure-relieving memory foam layer to provide the required support and comfort.
The Duroflex Livein mattress’s top layer is highly soft to add to your comfort levels.
Except for the SmartGRID layer, both these beds are similar in many ways.
One of the best features of the Duroflex Livein mattress is its protruded edges, preventing users from sliding through the edges. The thick edges allow the bed to retain shape, making it one of the most durable mattresses. In contrast, the Sleep Company mattress has no raised edges but provides excellent edge support.
Both these beds support motion isolation. So one restless sleeper does not disturb the other with their constant change of sleeping positions. The pressure does not transfer to their partner, who can continue to enjoy a peaceful sleep. Spring beds do not offer this luxury.
Memory foam beds absorb body heat and can be uncomfortable to sleep on during the peak summer season. The Duroflex Livein is not the ideal bed to sleep on during summer. In contrast, the Sleep Company ortho mattress is perfect because it has nearly 2500 air channels to allow free air circulation. But the Sleep Company mattress is expensive. Since it costs Rs 10,000 more than the Duroflex Livein beds, it is not worth spending that much on a bed if you have AC in the bedroom.
Ortho beds have a sturdy structure comprising different layers, including the support layer, comfort layer, pressure-relieving layer, etc., making them durable. The Sleep Company mattress has a unique SmartGRID layer for additional comfort. Besides, both these beds have high-quality fabric covers protecting the mattresses from dust contamination. Thus, they are extremely durable and capable of lasting for more than ten years.
Capacity to handle weights
Usually, memory foam beds are soft and prove challenging for heavily built individuals because they sink more with the weight. As a result, heavily built persons can find it difficult to get up from the bed. However, these beds can withstand the weight of heavy people comfortably. We advise people to go for the thicker mattresses in the 8-inch or 10-inch thickness category.
On average, Duroflex Livein Ortho mattresses are reasonably priced between Rs 9,000 and 18,000. The Sleep Company beds with SmartGRID technology are considerably more expensive by nearly Rs 10,000. So if you are budget conscious, the Duroflex Livein bed is a better option. Consumers can argue that SmartGRID beds allow better air circulation and do not become hot during summer. However, paying Rs 10,000 more is not worth it when you have AC in the bedroom.
Both beds are evenly placed in this category as the manufacturers offer a 10-year comprehensive warranty on these mattresses.
