When it comes to choosing the perfect mattress to suit your adjustable base, it’s important to consider a few elements before discussing the types of mattresses on the market.

  1. Mattress size: Ensure your mattress’s dimensions match your adjustable bed frame. It is critical that your mattress and base line up as an ill-fitting mattress can negatively impact the bed’s performance and the positioning of your body when the bed is elevated.

Memory Foam Mattresses: Mattress types

Memory Foam provides amazing pressure relief, gentle support, motion isolation, and body contouring. Memory foam mattresses do have some drawbacks with some users experiencing a ‘sinking’ feeling or trapped heat, however, they are also known to be gentle for side sleepers, softer on pressure pain, excellent at absorbing motion, and flexible. Due to their malleable nature, they are an ideal candidate to pair with your adjustable bed base as they conform to all positions your base offers and effortlessly return to their original structure without losing their shape or feel.

Inner Spring MattressInnerspring Mattresses

Innerspring mattress can be split into Bonnell and Pocketed springs. Bonnell coils are mostly a mattress of the past and are interconnected and thus more rigid, meaning they are harder to bend and maneuver.
Pocket springs on the other hand are individually wrapped springs and are therefore more flexible, making them more compatible with an adjustable bed.
