 Part 1: Why We Switched from Tempur-Pedic to intelliBED

Emily Hill replaced her 10-year-old sagging mattress with a premium mattress by Tempur-Pedic, but even after 3 weeks, she was still not happy with it. In her 3-part video blog when tells why.

Part 2: Reasons We Disliked Tempur-Pedic

In this part of her video blog, Emily Hill speaks about her experience with Tempur-Pedic and why she was so anxious to switch to IntelliBED.

  1. The Smell. Even after 3 weeks, the smell permeates the bedding and even Emily’s pajamas. [That’s because foam-based mattresses are known to off-gas toxic chemicals when new and as they deteriorate over time.]
  2. The Softness. The longer you lay on it, and the deeper you sink in, the firmer it feels.
  3. Side Sleeping. Emily had problems with uneven support for hips and shoulders and would wake up sore.
  4. Temperature. Emily [and others] said Tempurpedic sleeps hot.
  5. Turning Over. Because you sink in so far, turning over is difficult.
  6. Sex. Emily barely hinted at the issue, and we usually don’t mention it, but we do hear complaints all the time that memory foam deadens the sexual experience, so we felt it should be called out as one of the common complaints. Specifically, what we hear is that (1) you sink in with memory foam, and (2) there’s no bounce.

Part 3: The IntelliBed Advantages

In part 3 of her video blog, Emily Hill meets with intelliBED Founder Bob Rasmussen to learn about the science behind IntelliBed and what makes Intelli-GEL so amazing. For the technical details, watch Bob’s video below.

Even if you find the following TV ad a bit cheesy, at least it’s short & sweet, positioning the IntelliGEL cushioning material as 50-80% more comfortable than polyurethane, latex or memory foam.
