Promising Indications

Recent figures have shown promising signs of ‘steady’ growth as imports are set to increase market share. The data, which was compiled by AMA Research, revealed that the UK upholstered furniture and beds market rose by around 3-4 per centeach year until 2015 and is expected to increase by another three per cent in 2016.

Noticeable Increase

The beds sector had seen a noticeable increase in double and king-size beds due to competition in the market while mattress sales have seen growth in pocket sprung models along with other materials such as memory foam. The beds sector has also seen growth from those businessesusing internet-onlysales.

Research manager at AMA Research, Hayley Thornley, said, “The popularity of modern and contemporary furniture seems to favour alternative furniture combinations, rather than the traditional 3-piece suites. Other trends include flexible and modular furniture options to allow for open plan living areas and awkward spaces. This is also reflected in the range of design options now offered, including corner sofas, u-shaped sofas and chaise sofas.”

Dumped Mattresses Causing Issues for Woodland Trust

Purchasing a new mattress is all fun and games until it comes to getting rid of the old one. Many people are unsure of how to dispose of these correctly;unfortunately, many have taken to dumping them in nearby woodland, which is causing huge issues for the Woodland Trust. They spend thousands of pounds clearing these dumped mattresses every year. Here at Beds Glasgow, we know that disposing of a mattress can be a headache, but we would never recommend dumping your old mattress in this way; in fact, we vehemently condemn this practice. If you need any advice on mattress disposal after purchasing a new one, then please, do not hesitate to contact us for advice.

Dumped Mattresses Causing Issues for Woodland Trust

Worst Year to Date

The Woodland Trust has reported that 2016 was its worst year to date for fly-tipping, with nearly 200 separate incidents of rubbish being left on its land. The charity has spent a whopping £42,596 on the cleaning and disposal of items that had been dumped; this increased the total costs for dealing with waste in the woodlands to approximately £354,000 in 2016 alone. The figure for 2016 was up almost 85 per cent on the numbers from 2015. One of the most common items being dumped are, you guessed it – old mattresses.

Worrying

Woodland Trust UK operations director, Norman Starks, explained, “It’s worrying to see in a world where our woods face constant threats from disease, pests and development that we also have to deal with the actions of mindless individuals. Each year we are spending thousands of pounds clearing up other people’s waste, which could otherwise go towards creating new woods or protecting ancient woodland. At the end of the day, fly-tipping is an illegal activity, and people need to understand and remember that it has numerous implications for our woods and wildlife. We all need to care for our natural environment or risk ruining it forever.”

New Link Between Back Pain and Falling in Older Men

Back pain is something that affects millions of people around the world at one time or another, and it can be extremely uncomfortable. And many of these individuals would do anything to rid themselves of the pain and ensure that they can lead a happy, comfortable life without it. This is why many look at orthopaedic and memory foam mattresses when it comes time to purchase a new one.

New Link Between Back Pain and Falling in Older Men

Risk Factor

According to recent studies, back pain is the most commonly found pain in older men; this could mean that these men are at greater risk of falling and injuring themselves. Lead author and associate professor at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Lynn Marshall, explained, “We know that older people with back pain have poor physical function, like lower strength and difficulty rising from a chair.”

She went on, “Pain is not thought of as a traditional fall risk factor, but our study showed that back pain is a risk factor for falls among older men.”

Surveys

The report studied approximately 6,000 males over the age of 65 who lived at home. Between the years 2000 and 2002, these men were surveyed about back pain and were asked if they had had this problem over the previous twelve months; if so, they were asked how severe and intense the pain was, how often did it occur and where in the back was the pain. Over the next year, the men were tasked with logging whether they had fallen and how many times. Over two-thirds of the men revealed that they suffered from back pain in the original survey, with 62 per cent experiencing lower back pain. During the next year, 1,388 of the almost-6,000 men said that they had fallen at least once while 632 men had fallen on more than one occasion.

It is often the case that back pain can be the result of a poor mattress. If you are experiencing back pain and believe a new bed or mattress could be the solution, then Beds Glasgow can help. We have a fantastic range of products to suit the needs of anyone, including orthopaedic and memory foam mattresses. Check out our fabulous range today.
