Q: Please can you tell me if the Adlington 1400 pocket sprung latex mattress selling in Tesco at £299 is an ortho? Question from Andrea


We do not consider the Adlington to be an orthopaedic mattress.

The term 'orthopaedic' generally just means an extra firm bed; it is not based on any medical or other common standard, nor does it mean the bed has been professionally assessed or recommended.  It is a term loosely used by manufacturers to refer to extra firm models in their range. 

As this mattress has a luxurious latex comfort layer this will give the mattress a softer feel.  We would consider it to be medium firm, rather than extra firm, although comfort is very subjective.
