Abstract (en)

Mattress with a foam core (1) made from at least one flexible foam material (6), which mattress has a top side (2), a bottom side (3) which is virtually parallel to the top side, and a head end (4) and a feet end (5). Of the top and bottom sides of the mattress, at lest the top side (2) is intended as a surface for sleeping on. According to the invention, the foam core (1) of the mattress contains, in addition to the abovementioned flexible foam material (6), a layer of a less flexible material, in particular a layer (7) of an agglomerated foam, which extends at a greater depth below the sleeping surface (2) of the mattress towards the head end (4) of the mattress than towards the feet end (5) of the mattress. In this way, the legs are at a higher level than the body without the mattress having to be raised at the level of the legs or, in other words, without an adjustable bed base or the like being required. <IMAGE>
