Thread: Need a new pressure relieving mattress?

  1. #21
    I have purchased from this company in the past. I think they have a item price calculator on the page.

    These small cooling fan in it gets noisy quickly after purchase but does not affect performance.

    Also comes in a full, queen or king size:

    Trial first to see if your tailbone can handle it though.

    I also protect my feet and heels by using the same company's original cradle boots:

    These beds, as explained by an OT, aren't as relieveing due to the chamber orientation.

    But they are cheaper than a low-loss type.. Thank my lucky stars canadian gov't paid 7K of it.

    Pressure reduction

    Hi, Tiff:



    WWW.Thecompanystore.com in Wisconsin sells memory foam bed pads of all sizes for $80 and machine washable 1-inch-high wool pad that covers the whole bed for $120 to $180, depending on the size of the bed.

    I use a 3-inch memory foam pad topped by the wool pad on top of a regular mattress. Haven't had a sore in five years. I turn myself one to four times a night, depending on how well I sleep. Four or more turns = insomnia.

    Tiff, I bought a three piece/layer memory bed from cloud 9 off ebay.

    With shipping, $350. It even came with two top layers, one firmer.
    And the truth shall set you free.

    Tiff-
    assuming that the comfotmatic boxspring is adjustable, the only thing you would want to double check is that there is some sort of bar/stop at the foot of your bed to keep the top mattress from sliding off when you adjust the bed. Tempurpedic actually sells an adjustable base for their mattresses as well, AND if you get a knowledgable sales-person in a bed store...They'll give you lotsa nifty info, LIKE...There are 3 manufacturers for adjustable bases and all the mattress companies get them from one of those 3...soooooo, it doeesn't matter WHO'S base you are using, as long as you are comfy and can use the control...
