    I agree that the mattress means as much as the sheets. For bed mobility, a high thread count cotton or satin sheet (not synthetic) are best as long as they are tight on the mattress. Baggy sheets suck. Too much effort is expended to move the sheet before the body goes anywhere.

    The best mattress we found (he tried all of them) was from the Mattress Warehouse. They reinforce the side edges so that there is more stability for transfers. --eak

    Oh dear, I just thought of the worst possible setup - a waterbed. *shudder*

    Satin is old school, though I agree it may be a decent option.

    John, in case you missed the link, I think the Sheex brand of sheets has potential. It's basically athletic wear fabric (think under armour, etc).

    Yeah, the edges are one reason we went w/ a BeautyRest and not a 100% memory foam mattress like TempurPedic.

    +1 for flannel and oversized top sheets. They are hard for us to get in Holland, but well worth the effort to get.

    I find a high thread count set of sheets works best for me, like 600 or so. The satin sheets are too slippery and the flannel sheets too hot.
