Egg crate foam is also known as convoluted foam. The cut design of egg crate foam is to create channeling for air flow. To create egg crate foam, a mattress four to eight inches thick is compressed between rollers and pushed through a convoluted saw blade. The foam is then configured into the egg crate design and the foam mattress is now two matching egg crate mattresses, resulting in a finished height of two to four inches thick. The classic cone shape provides high and low pressure points. The low pressure points insure that obstructions of the lymphatic and venous of the limbs are kept to a minimum. The high points of the cones are compressed with weight distribution in the shoulder and hip areas, while the waist and leg areas receive more support. This gives the egg crate mattress the ability to conform to the shape of your body. The channeling allows for the skin to breathe and is a preventive measure for bed sores. This is why egg crate mattresses are used in hospitals and mainly distributed through medical companies.
An egg crate foam mattress is only as good as the quality of the foam it’s made of.
