Are Helix Sleep mattresses good for couples with a restless sleeper?
Share your experience with Helix Sleep's motion isolation features
When it comes to motion transfer, The Sleep Judge gives Helix Sleep Mattresses a rating of 8.4/10, saying, "Between the foams and the pocketed microcoils, you get a sleep surface that isolates movement when you sit, lie down, shift, or toss and turn in bed. What this means is that if your partner gets up for a drink of water in the middle of the night, there should be little to no motion noticed by you."
Tuck examined 344 reviews from 11 different sources to produce their review of Helix Sleep. In regards to motion transfer, they give it a rating of Good (with Very Good and Excellent being higher) and say, "Helix mattresses isolate motion and minimize nighttime disruptions to a noticeable extent, which is better than average for hybrid models."
Sleepopolis tested Helix Sleep's motion control by dropping weights on the mattresses, and breaks down their results by the two types of mattresses offered:
"The Moonlight has quite high motion transfer results, which tell me you’re likely to feel your partner’s movements in the night. Given the bouncy nature of the mattress, I’m not too surprised by these results, but it is something for couples to be aware of.
On the other hand, the Midnight exhibited much lower motion transfer results thanks to its thick layer of memory foam up top. This material is excellent at absorbing and containing motion, so helps to curb the bounce from the pocketed coils to ensure that you won’t be too disturbed by your bed mate’s tossing and turning."
With its firm feel, Helix Sleep mattress was designed to provide high levels of support to a wide variety of sleepers. With its great pressure relief and support features it's ideal for sleepers that toss and turn at night.
This mattress also has quite a bit of bounce because of the use of responsive poly foams and micro-coils. This is great for couples engaging in amorous activities. The mattress handles motion transfer well, but not as great as memory foam mattresses. However, when compared to other coil mattresses, it's certainly a better option.
