Swollen Ankles

A TopSleep Memory foam Mattress can help to reduce the pain and discomfort of swollen ankles and oedema.

Oedema of the ankles is quite common, especially in hot weather, at high altitude, and if movement is restricted. This swelling is usually ‘dependent’, meaning that the pressure of fluid in the legs, from prolonged standing or sitting, pushes it into the surrounding tissues.

Generalized oedema causes weight increase. In mild cases there may be no more effect than this, but more severe oedema can cause difficulty in breathing. If the lung oedema becomes severe, the situation may become life-threatening.

Adjusting one’s position regularly whilst in bed or sitting down, coupled raising your legs can help to reduce the pressure on the ankles, which causes oedema.

The TopSleep Memory foam Mattress can help to reduce oedema of the ankles in a number of ways:

The Orthopaedic TopSleep Mattress can promote a better sleeping position. This helps to reduce the swelling and the associated pain.
