Did You Know?

We spend about 26 years of our lives sleeping.

Considering the connection between sleep and health, your mattress choice is a critical decision.

Interestingly, we spend about four years of our lives driving, yet most people put considerably more thought and effort into their car purchase decisions—which have less bearing on our long-term health and wellbeing.

Did you know that foam mattresses can sag up to 25% in the first two years?

Nearly every mattress in America relies on foam to cushion the body. However, as a cushioning material, foam is less than ideal because from the first day of use it begins to soften and sag, developing body impressions, losing comfort, and worse, losing its ability to properly support your body and spine. The resulting spinal misalignment is one of the leading causes of lower back pain. Therefore, it’s critical to know what’s inside your mattress. Watch the video to learn more.

Did you know that most people toss and turn up to 40 times every night?

This is caused by pressure points that build around the body as we sleep, from mattresses that provide poor support. This is highly disruptive to sleep and prevents us from reaching and sustaining the deep, healing stage 3 and 4 sleep our bodies require. As a result, you wake more tired than when you went to sleep, often with aches, pains, and possibly even an uncomfortable tingling sensation in the limbs. Watch the video to learn more.

Did you know that foam mattresses can emit more toxins than a freshly painted room?

That “new mattress” smell is actually off-gassing of the chemicals used to produce synthetic and memory foam, as well as fire retardants. There’s uncertainty around mattress toxicity claims, but considering the close physical proximity to your mattress and prolonged exposure to the chemicals within, why take any chances?

Did you know you’re more likely to pay off your mortgage before you need to replace your intelliBED?

The two largest mattress manufacturers only offer 10-year warranties, yet their beds typically don’t even last that long. The National Sleep Foundation suggests that the lifespan of a conventional mattress is about eight years. However, the materials used in an intelliBED are four to ten times more durable than memory foam or any other mattress on the market. That’s why intelliBED mattresses are warrantied for 30 years. Less frequent replacement also means lower cost of ownership. Watch the video to learn more.
