What is the difference between Mattress Helper and placing plywood under your mattress?
Mattress Helper is designed to be placed between the mattress and the box spring in the area that needs support. The structure of the foam designed Mattress Helper with its unique spacing, reinforces the soft area which may sag, filling it in so that you have more comfort and support while you sleep. Your mattress looks and feels new again. The design of the Mattress Helper allows the mattress above it the “give” you need for comfortable support. The mattress will still be able to flex and allow for movement when it should. Mattress Helper is made out of breathable and flexible polyurethane foam with unique spacing created to reduce the feeling of pressure points typical of a piece of plywood or other hard products. Placing plywood under your bed does not allow the mattress to breathe as the plywood can retain moisture, thereby causing moisture in your bed and even mold. Plywood does not allow your mattress to give where your body rests. Plywood causes pressure points to your spine and other areas of your body since the mattress and box spring cannot flex as easily while you sleep.
