IntelliGEL®, called Isoplex® in hospitals, is a true breakthrough in sleep technology… the first one in 40 years and by far the most important ever. We believe it to be the only material that can both reduce pressure points and provide horizontal support for the spine and recessed areas of your body at the same time. This is important because it provides the comfort you need for sound and restorative sleep that’s so important to long term health.
IntelliGEL (see video below about how it works) is a patented, very soft & strong, rubber-like, space-aged co-polymer that’s unlike any other bedding material. It’s what gives IntelliBED® mattresses their unique qualities and is why they are used in hospital burn units and intensive care settings. IntelliGEL has proven to be very helpful for the most severe cases in health care settings, and we have worked hard to provide this technology to consumers at a very competitive price. We have the exclusive license to use IntelliGEL in mattresses for the home market.
Made from food grade mineral oil, IntelliGEL is virtually indestructible. It maintains its shape and “like new” support for twenty years or more and comes with an industry-leading warranty that contributes to exceptionally low cost of ownership. IntelliGEL also offers performance characteristics that are unsurpassed in the mattress industry, as shown in our videos comparing it to competing technologies (Tempur-Pedic memory foam, Sleep Number air beds, Pillow-tops, and beds with inner-springs and Latex foam. Key attributes include:
- superior spinal alignment and pressure relief that stops excessive turning in bed and improves sleep quality;
- helps to maintain blood circulation, reduce pain, and heal muscles;
- does not off-gas so is non-toxic and hypo-allergenic; and
- does not require the use of fire retardant chemicals.
Spinal Alignment: IntelliBED® uses the IntelliGEL technology to keep your spine in firm, horizontal alignment, ensuring a great night’s sleep while also providing 50-80% more pressure relief than inner springs or NASA memory foam. It also is the only material we’ve tested that will perform “like new” for the life of the mattress.
Pressure Relief: IntelliBED® also optimizes sleep wellness by reducing pressure and supporting recessed body parts. No other mattress available at any price can achieve all three elements: spinal alignment, pressure relief, and comfort. And we can prove it. Using an XSENSOR® pressure mapping pad, we test thousands of people each year in our custom sleep lab. Pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury from 0mm Hg to 200 mm Hg. Readings above 35 can cause pressure sores in a bed ridden patient, and we routinely see measurements of 100 or greater in every type of mattress we test, except IntelliBED. Note that the yellow and red areas show high pressure with eventual pain points.
