I’m sure many of you back pain sufferers are similar to me when staying away from home. The mattress that you sleep on can either make or break your holiday. For me personally, to hard and then I am as stiff as a board, to soft and my back wakes me up with every move I make. My topper is an eggshell type topper which takes pressure of your painful areas but is very comfortable to sleep on as well. The only trouble with mine is that it is to big to be portable so I have always been on the look out for a small portable one that would do the trick.

Fortunately I came across this website http://www.raskelf.com who specialise in mattress toppers for travel and caravans. The mattress roll up easily to store and the company won the MMM Product of the Year in 2009 for their revolutionary memory foam sleeping bag!!

The Raskelf Portable mattress toppers are available in a 1” or 2” thickness and come in Single, Double and Bespoke sizes. The 1” overlays are made from 65kg/m visco elastic memory foam specially formulated to work when cut thinly. The 2” overlays are made in three quality ranges, Bronze Economy, Silver Comfort and Gold Luxury.

They are all supplied with a luxurious inner stretch fabric cover and elasticated straps that keep the mattress nearly rolled for storage. A must for any back pain sufferer.



  1. What a wonderful idea, Barmac! We have a King Tempurpedic bed, but when I had pericarditis for eight months in 2006/7 David brought home the same sort of mattress cover for my pain. It works marvels!
