Our Patents

Spinal zone

Zone quilting
Our zone quilting technology creates a looser quilt panel in the top and bottom third of the mattress, which helps contour to the sleeper’s body and support their center third, the area that carries the most weight. Our zone quilting technology has been endorsed by the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations (COCSA) so customers know they are getting a product that’s engineered to help with aches and pains.

LifeEdge
Reinforcing the sides of the mattress, our LifeEdge patented technology prevents the “roll off” feeling at the edge of the bed.
