Intellibed is a newer mattress company, however, they are one that has been making waves in the industry which is why we find it is time to do an in-depth Intellibed review to help people know more about this brand of mattresses. Intellibed was founded by Bob Rasmussen and the reason he decided to start his company was that in his opinion there was the lack of mattresses that promoted sweet, deep, and blissful sleep. He knew how to approach this problem due to his experience as a designer for 30 years in high-tech cushioning. He firmly believed that the type of mattress you have affects the kind of sleep you will get.
The IntelliBed line of mattresses has the innovation that meets every mattress requirement. Frankly, it is in a stratosphere of its own in achieving comfort, luxury, and support. It is very durable which is why the Intellibed gives the customer a 30-year warranty, unlike other high-end mattresses which can only offer a 20-year warranty.
What Is The Ideal Sleep Surface?
To answer this important question we must understand what the body requires when it is lying down.
Structurally our bodies need two things:
- It needs good back support so that your skeletal structure is aligned in the least stressful state.
- It needs pressure relief on the hips and shoulders, so we don’t toss and turn all night.
In a sense, it is a delicate balance between achieving support for the right spots on the body without comprising overall comfortability when lying down.
The combination of the Intellibed’s design has managed to achieve that delicate balance for unparalleled comfort that is unmatched by any other mattress.
What Type of Mattress Provides Ideal Back Support?
If we understand the importance of sitting and standing straight and having the right posture, we must also understand the importance of sleeping straight. But the fact that our lower torso is the heaviest part of our body presents a problem because it will naturally sink into the mattress.
The mattress must prevent this from happening by pushing the hips up so that our spine does not sag into a hammock shape.
Poor support from mattresses is one of the leading causes of back pain and a dead giveaway that you are not being supported properly by your present mattress.
What About Pressure Points?
The material that comes to mind when you think of a mattress is foam. As a matter of fact, the only material that most of us associate any mattress with is foam. However, the thing with foam is that when you compress it, it creates a hard surface. So as your hips press into the mattress, it creates uncomfortable pressure points. As a result, excessive pressure points on the skin cut off blood flow to the tissue causing pain.
The brain knows this and will automatically wake us up from the deeper stages of sleep so that we can turn over. Tossing and turning deprive us of a good night sleep. It’s time to replace that foam.
So What Are The Five Pillars of Healthy Sleep?
- Support: Superior spinal alignment that reduces back pain
- Comfort: Better pressure relief to minimize tossing and turning
- Safety: Gel Matrix, 100% non-toxic and hypoallergenic materials
- Durability: Lifelong comfort and support
- Temperature: The perfect sleeping temperature.
If you compare the other brands of mattresses against the Intellibed technology, they miserably fall short of attaining the five pillars of healthy sleep. At best, some will attain only two components and compromise on the rest. It may be because of their structural makeup.
This lack of accountability places the Intellibed above the rest as the best sleeping surface.
Intellibed Review: The Company’s History
After years in the high-tech cushioning industry, founder, Bob Rasmussen found a problem that he wanted to solve. According to Rasmussen, the quality of mattress support, durability, and general construction had become compromised and flawed.
After over three decades in designing and fixing beds, his keen eye picked out repeated problems with mattresses that put consumer safety at risk. So he fixed the problem through this artistic innovation called the Intellibed. The construction of the Intellibed is based on meticulous crafting. Keep in mind though that Intellibed is not just a mattress. It’s a solution!
The Science Behind Intellibed
Bob consulted with leading doctors and therapist throughout the US while he was developing and testing products in the field of high-tech cushioning. That’s how he learned the monumental challenge of cushioning and supporting the human body.
The Intellibed mattress is deemed a solution for support challenges that come with conventional mattresses. It conforms to the movement of your body and tangibly soothes the pressure points on your body.
Before you buy an Intellibed mattress, it’s important that you know the best kind of mattress that you need to help you sleep better, knowing this and coupling it with the right mattress is going to yield the best results.
It Is The Best Pressure Point Reliever
Gel Matrix is the most pressure relieving material ever created! The polymer gel material is formed into a gel comfort grid that enhances the cushioning ability of the material. Instead of just compressing like foam, the gel grid collapses under the hips and shoulders allowing just those areas to sink deeply into the mattress with no pressure points.
When Intellibed mattresses featuring Gel Matrix are subjected to Pressure map testing, it was 80% more pressure relieving than memory foam, latex, or polyurethane foam. We did notice this in our Intellibed review, especially if you’re a side sleeper. The normal pressure points you tend to feel in a bed were non-existent as it just seemed like it wrapped around you but in a firm and ultra comfortable way.
It wouldn’t be much of an Intellibed review if we didn’t talk about the durability of the mattresses and how long they last. If mattresses were a race, the Gel Matrix would be the ultimate marathon as they are designed to last very very long. In fact, when subjected to durability testing, Intellibed mattresses soften less than 5% over the life of the mattress. Gel Matrix is indestructible. More often than not in a mattress, a compact is mistaken for durability and soft for comfort. This misconception is shattered by Intellibed’s right balance of these precise features.
When a mattress gets these features right, it benefits everyone and becomes a solution for those with sensitive backs and those who are prone to misalignment.
It’s Non- Toxic
The raw material for Gel Matrix is also being used for the baby bottle. In fact, when subjected to a handheld toxicity meter the gel matrix has no toxic content at all. It doesn’t get any safer than that!
Gel-Matrix has been thoroughly tested using standard cytotoxicity and hemolysis tests and was found to be among the most reliable materials used in mattresses.
It is also hypoallergenic, making it a suitable option for people sensitive to allergies.
It’s Temperature Controlled
Gel Matrix does not trap heat against your body, and neither does it soak the heat out of your body enabling a neutral temperature as you sleep. In fact, in our Intellibed review, we found that this bed was one of the top 2-3 beds that seemed to feel cooler as the night went on. This is especially comfortable on those hot summer nights when it seems like your bed is the same temperature as it is outside, but not with the Intellibed.
After dealing with mattresses that are too hot or too cold, finding one that quickly regulates the temperature is gold especially with the unpredictability of today’s climate.
Intellibed “Simply the Best”?
It wouldn’t be a legitimate Intellibed review if we didn’t test out the bed for enough time to get a good feel for it. We decided the Intellibed review would last a month and I can honestly say the whole month I tested this bed, it was perhaps the best sleep I consistently had in my life.
Welcome to the world of the Gel Matrix. For many of us, myself included, this is a revelation, but during Bob’s day at his previous company R&D, they set out to invent a replacement material for foam in mattresses. And that marked the genesis of the Gel Matrix advanced cushioning material which is what makes Intellibed different from the other mattresses on the market today.
Hopefully, you have found our Intellibed review to be informative and has helped you reach a decision about your next mattress. It is an innovation that seems too good to be true, yet you can have it at a click of a button. After such an attractive and functional discovery no one should lose sleep because of a hard, lumpy or saggy mattress. Over and above being able to confer you to the depths of ‘sleeptopia,’ the Intellibed allows your body to heal and repair itself holistically.
You may be tempted to say Bob Rasmussen disrupted the mattress industry. Well, through the Intellibed he just did!
