Emma provides a hugging embrace for your body while you sleep, which is great for back pain or joint problems because of the pressure relief.

Emma originated in Germany but is manufactured in the UK, they've sold 700,000 plus mattresses in only 5 years, it's the UK's most-awarded mattress ​and has lately extended to Australia.
