When your bed is a pain in the neck, back, or other body part, replace it.
Mattress discomfort comes in many forms. Hip or shoulder pain usually suggests a deficient sleep surface that creates pressure points. Low back pain may indicate ineffective structural support that allows the spine or hips to miss-align.
IntelliGEL makes IntelliBED different and provides:
COMFORT: Provides superior spinal alignment and pressure relief that's consistently 50-80% greater than inner springs and NASA memory foam, and we prove it in our sleep lab. Call today to schedule an appointment.
DURABILITY: IntelliGEL® mattresses support "like new" and maintain their shape for twenty years or more, which means you'll save money by avoiding the need to replace your mattress every 8 years as most industry experts recommend.
VALUE: Proven by tens of thousands of IntelliBED users, our IntelliGEL mattresses outperform the competition by keeping their "just like new" feel longer. But the "real" value comes from getting better sleep, which improves your health and performance.
SLEEP WELLNESS: Doctors recommend the non-toxic IntelliBED as the best choice for sleep wellness because of its ability to reduce tossing & turning and spend more time in the restorative stages of deep sleep.
No other mattress available at any price can achieve these elements.
Intel-Gel allows us to craft an ideal surface for different sleeping needs, and our customers find them especially well suited to relieve:
♦ Back & Spine Pain
♦ Chronic Muscle Pain
♦ Overall Discomfort
♦ Tossing & Turning
♦ Pressure Sores
♦ Acid Reflux
If you've not yet decided on an IntelliBed® and are still considering memory foam (e.g. Tempur-Pedic), air beds (Sleep Number), or pillow tops, scan our educational Video Gallery, because it includes direct competitive comparisons.
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 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
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.
4 Pressure Map Examples
IntelliGEL "column buckling" construction maintains spinal alignment better than foam, memory foam, air beds, or springs and also produces less pressure. That's why it's used in hospitals and recommended by over 250 Austin chiropractors and doctors. We also avoid the use of polyurethane and memory foam, because those materials are are made from petrochemicals that can off-gas toxic fumes. Our use of IntelliGEL results in an ideal surface for different sleeping needs, and our customers find them especially well suited to relieve:
♦ Back Soreness
♦ Pressure Sores
♦ Tossing and Turning.
IntelliBED® Mattress Selection
If you toss & turn often or your partner does (and it bothers you) take a look at our IntelliBED Motion. And if you have other medical issues such as back pain, check out our IntelliBED Regular, and if your back problems are so severe that you’re considering surgery, look into our Adjustable sleep systems, which offer a spinal decompression feature that has proven very beneficial in helping these types of serious conditions. If you’re an average sleeper just wanting the lowest cost for a bed that’s “not too firm and not too soft,” look at IntelliBED Value.
IntelliBED Regular — designed for sleepers with back problems who need and appreciate extra alignment support with surprising comfort. Construction of this 12 inch tall mattress starts with a high coil count laced innerspring to give the best spinal alignment and support for people who are heavy-weight, suffer from from back or disk problems, or need or just prefer firmer support. On top of that we add a layer of soy foam and our IntelliGEL cushioning material, and the imported polyester cotton quilted with a furniture grade foam that complements the gel and provides an extra soft and plush feeling.
As with the Softer and Motion, the IntelliBED Regular comes as a matched set with a specially designed box spring unit and is engineered to last 2 to 3 times longer than other mattresses. I’s available in all standard mattress sizes and has an industry-leading 30 year limited warranty for unparalleled value. Add our 60 day in-home trial offer by purchasing a Protect ‘Ur Gel cover and adhering to usage requirement (see in-home trial).
IntelliBED Softer — designed for sleepers who need or prefer the SOFTEST bed possible, including those people with severe pain from medical conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis. Construction starts with a laced inner-spring support system but then replaces the soy foam we normally use with a 3 inch layer of top quality Talalay* latex. This is the softest bed available that still provides amazing support for the lower back.
(* The Talalay process removes the protein that causes allergic reactions but adds extra steps. First, liquid latex rubber is poured into a mold and sealed before going into a vacuum chamber. The mold is then flash-frozen to stabilize the cell structure, and carbon dioxide is introduced as the mold is heated to cure the rubber.)
IntelliBED Softer is 13 inches thick and uses standard deep pocket sheets. It comes as a matched set with a specially designed box spring unit and is engineered to last 2 to 3 times longer than other mattresses. I’s available in all standard mattress sizes and has an industry-leading 30 year limited warranty for unparalleled value.

IntelliBED Motion — our most popular bed for sleepers who are very sensitive to partner movement. Construction of this 12 inch tall mattress starts with a pocket coil support system that dampens partner disturbance from motion transfer. To that we add a specially designed cushioning layer of soy foam and our IntelliGEL cushioning material, which decreases pressure by up to 80% and greatly reduces tossing & turning as well. The top layer is imported polyester cotton quilted with a furniture grade foam that complements the gel and provides an extra soft and plush feeling.

IntelliBED Value — all the benefits of IntelliBED and IntelliGEL at the LOWEST price, designed to work with your current box spring, a platform bed or water-bed frame. It is designed to work with your current box spring, a platform bed or water-bed frame. It stands 10″ tall, uses standard sheets, and is designed for the average sleeper who likes a bed that is “not too firm and not too soft.” The IntelliBED Value uses the same soy foam and IntelliGEL cushioning material found in IntelliBED Regular but is topped with organic cotton material treated with silica fire-blocker to meet Federal regulations, as opposed to the imported polyester cotton quilted with a furniture grade foam. It comes with a 20 year warranty, is available in all standard sizes, and qualifies for our 60 day FREE in home trial program when purchased with a Protect ‘Ur Gel Mattress cover.
Don’t let the low price fool you. This mattress contains premium quality materials not found in any other mattress brand regardless of price, except it does not include a box spring or metal frame. In order to maximize the life of your mattress, we recommend using a box spring and metal frame with center support. If you don’t have either of these, we have them available at extra cost.
IntelliBED Adjustable — designed for people needing advanced pain relief or who have a serious back problems that can benefit from targeted, mild decompression.All IntelliBED mattresses can be upgraded to a fully state-of-the-art sleep comfort system by replacing the flat box spring with an adjustable base. By combining the adjustable base with IntelliGEL technology, the IntelliBED Spinal Decompression System (see Video details) represents the finest MEDICAL GRADE product outside of hospitals to assist your medical condition while you sleep. This is the perfect option if you suffer from severe conditions such as a herniated disc, lumbar misalignment, scoliosis, osteoarthritis and more. It’s recommended for people with a medical condition that can benefit from having the head and/or feet raised during sleep, such as Asthma, Acid Reflux and Heartburn, Endema, Osteoarthritis, Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Spondylolisthesis, Neck and Shoulder Tension, and Circulatory Problems.
Note that most people who order king or California king adjustable bases order them “split”. The Split King is two 38×80 mattresses that when placed side-by-side form the size of a king. The split Cal-king size is two 30×84 mattresses that when placed side-by-side form the size of a California King. Splitting the mattress allows each user to individually adjust their bed independent from the other. It is possible to order an adjustable king or adjustable Cal king. In this case, both adjustable bases will be synchronized so that they both move together. The advantage is that there is no split down the middle. The disadvantage is that both sides of the bed must adjust together. Call for extra-long Cal-king pricing.
IntelliBED Kids — designed specifically to comfort and support the GROWING CHILD, working perfectly with a platform bed or box spring.Available in twin and full size, this mattress works perfectly with a platform bed or box spring. This mattress features a full layer of intelliGEL on top of a high quality innerspring for the perfect combination of support and comfort. We used materials that will change less than 5% over 20 years for a mattress that will support your child properly until they reach adulthood.
Healthful, Nontoxic and Hypoallergenic -- A growing body of medical research links serious childhood disease and SIDS to the toxic materials and fire blockers used in some mattresses. So most importantly, our gel kids mattress helps provide the restorative sleep that young, growing bodies need, and with none of the toxic off-gassing of foam. Click here to see how we compare.
IntelliBED Baby crib mattress — designed to be the most baby-friendly, pressure-relieving, and natural sleep surface ever. (Watch the video)
By using hospital tested IntelliGEL for both cushioning and support we were able to eliminate all the foam and any other potentially allergenic materials, making this the most natural, nontoxic, hypoallergenic mattress for baby’s healthy sleep. And by avoiding the poly-chemical foam, latex or wool found in other baby mattresses we were able to avoid the too-firm surfaces that can affect your baby when sleeping. The excellent pressure relieving qualities of IntelliGEL helps protect baby from cradle cap and plagiocephaly, the flat head condition from a too-firm mattress.
This 29″x54″3″ crib mattress weighs 29 pounds and meets all federal regulations for size and fire blocking. It is purposely designed to be thinner than most baby mattresses (3 inches vs. 6 inches) to offer less chance of baby falling over the side of the crib as they grow and begin to stand up.
Just Gel Baby! -- The IntelliBED baby crib mattress uses hospital tested IntelliGEL for both cushioning and support to make sure that it’s non-toxic, anti-microbial, and hypo-allergenic. IntelliGel is so safe that it’s used to make baby bottle nipples, and it offers exceptional pressure relief.
WARNING: Many Other Crib Mattresses Emit High Rates of Potentially Harmful Chemicals. Infants are more sensitive to these chemicals because they inhale much more air per body weight than adults and sleep a longer time. They experience about 10 times as much inhalation exposure as adults when exposed to the same level of VOCs.
In a first-of-its-kind study, a team of environmental engineers at The University of Texas found that infants are exposed to high levels of chemical emissions from crib mattresses while they sleep. The team analyzed the polyurethane foam and polyester foam padding from 20 new and old crib mattresses, and they found significant amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), potentially harmful chemicals also found in household items such as cleaners and scented sprays.
More than 30 VOCs in the mattresses were identified, including phenol, neodecanoic acid and linalool. The most abundant chemicals identified in the crib mattress foam, such as limonene (a chemical that gives products a lemon scent), are routinely found in many cleaning and consumer products.
Once you get used to sleeping on an intelliBED, you’ll really miss it when you’re on a trip without it. We made special IntelliGEL slim-line mattress for use when camping, in RVs or boats, or as a luxury mattress topper for the kind of mattresses normally found in a guest bedroom. It features a full layer of IntelliGEL encased in organic cotton and is available in all standard mattress sizes, including the short queen size normally found in boats. Call for a quote if you have a non-standard size, because we can make it!
This is not a flimsy mattress topper or egg crate. The IntelliGEL Topper features a 3-inch layer of cushioning material that weighs about 70 pounds for the King size and is encased in an environmentally friendly cotton cover. It works well with a too firm mattress in good condition, such as a Tempur-Pedic mattress, or an air bed, although it won’t save a broken down, too soft mattress that lacks adequate spinal support. The Gel Mattress Topper is often recommended for those needing relief from pressure sores or tossing and turning due to hip or shoulder discomfort. Features:
- A top layer of IntelliGEL is combined with a one inch layer of high density comfort foam for good pressure relief and support.
- A plush, quilted, knit fabric covers the IntelliGEL. This durable fabric is a cotton/poly blend.
- A non-skid fabric bottom grips the top of your current mattress to keep the Gel-Topper securely in place.
- Buckle straps fit around your existing mattress for the last secure attachment.
- Gel-Toppers reduce partner disturbance and are allergen and mite resistant with fire-retardant construction.
An IntelliGEL Mattress Topper puts an affordable “Wow” into your Sleep Vocabulary. Besides using it for travel or a guest bed, people often buy the Gel Topper because their current mattress is too firm or their budget won’t allow the purchase of an intelliBED at this time. Either way, you can try it for 60-days risk free!
But can’t I just buy a new mattress for around $500? -- Well yes you can, but then you’ll have the potential effects of toxic off-gasses and still need to buy a new mattress every 3-8 years. Our Gel Mattress Topper doesn’t wear like foam, so you won’t have to worry about your bed feeling too firm or too soft so often.
Get an IntelliGEL Makeover -- If the support system on your current bed is still in good shape, adding an IntelliGEL topper works wonders for pressure relief and comfort. Select a topper size that matches your current mattress and just place it on top. The weight will keep it from shifting. Then cover the mattress and topper with the Protect-ur-Gel mattress protector. That way, if you have a TempurPedic memory foam mattress, a Sleep Number bed, or an innerspring mattress that is too firm, an IntelliGEL makeover can help!
Adjustable comfort for Perfect Neck Support -- If you’re tossing & turning all night, it may be your pillow and not your mattress, but how do you find out? Selecting the right pillow provides more then just comfort; it affects your health overall. People with sleep apnea, for example, can benefit from a pillow that keeps breathing passages open by lifting the chin, so our Intel-Pillow does just that and is is adjustable for different body sizes and shapes. Others may be allergic to pillows made from down, wool, cotton, silk or most latex. That’s why we offer hypoallergenic pillows.
