They say copying something is the sincerest form of flattery and that certainly holds true in the mattress business. As our intelli-gel mattresses became more and more successful we had people try to take it away from us. We successfully defended our exclusive right to the 100% co-polymer gel trademarked intelli-gel for the home mattress market in the court system of the US. So other mattress companies began to market look-a-like gel mattresses maintaining they were as good as intelliBED.
Value is a very unique concept that some people struggle to understand. Often you may be shopping and see two products side-by-side that appear to do the same thing at different prices. Clearly, you think, the cheaper one offers more value, right? Not necessarily.
What is The DURABILITY Index? This index rates the lifetime performance of materials used in mattresses. Unfortunately, you the consumer, have not been able to consider the durability of different materials when making the purchase decision between mattresses because manufacturers don’t release this information to the public, so you have been forced to make your buying decision based almost solely on what feels best to you at the time.
Conventional mattresses are filled with synthetic materials. For example, most mattresses contain polyurethane foam. Polyurethane foam constantly breaks down and releases chemicals, which is called off-gassing. Polyurethane foam is made from chemicals that are known carcinogens.
The most important function of a mattress is to support your back. If your back is not properly supported while you sleep, you will wake up with back pain and stiffness. The core system, or support layer, of your mattress is what supports your back. If it allows your hips to sag into the mattress it will throw off the alignment of your spine, causing back pain. The Support Index measures the effectiveness of different types of core systems.
Since the primary function of a mattress is to provide proper support for your back, pressure points will build on your body where the most support is being given. To combat this pressure, comfort layers are added to mattresses. Their purpose is to relieve the pressure caused by the core support system, thus allowing you to fall asleep without any aches or pains and without tossing and turning at night. Read more.
