Abstract (en)

Mattress having a top panel (1) and a bottom panel (2) made from a flexible material, in particular from foam material, and having wooden coil springs (6), in particular rattan springs, arranged between these top and bottom panels. According to the invention, at least one piece of latex foam is provided between the said wooden springs (6) at least in one zone of the mattress which is subjected to relatively heavy loads, and in particular in the shoulder and/or pelvis zone. Preferably, a plurality of small latex foam blocks (7) are provided in this zone, both these small blocks (7) and the wooden springs (6) being arranged in interconnected pockets. The presence of the small latex foam blocks has a beneficial effect on the fatigue properties of the mattress and, more specifically, the formation of hollows is counteracted. <IMAGE>
