Don’t be fooled by competitor claims about gel foam in their mattresses.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and that certainly holds true in the mattress industry. Gel Matrix™ is a one-of-a-kind 100% co-polymer gel that is the most revolutionary and technologically advanced material for mattresses available. It’s unique properties make it the ideal surface to maintain proper spinal alignment and body support while reducing painful pressure points that can lead to excessive tossing and turning with other mattresses, including those of the gel-foam variety. And it is available exclusively from Intellibed. But that hasn’t stopped others from trying to imitate it.

In order to make the foam behave less like foam and more like gel, many mattress manufacturers are infusing their foam with tiny beads of gel. Ultimately, they are trying to fool consumers into believing their ‘gel foam‘ is functionally the same as Gel Matrix™. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While having some gel in the foam might slightly reduce some of the common concerns around foam such as sleeping hot or pressure build-up leading to excessive tossing and turning, it still doesn’t perform anywhere near as well as 100% pure gel. Foam breaks down significantly faster than gel, so a mattress made with gel foam won’t last as long. One simple test for this is to check the mattress manufacturer’s warranty. Most manufacturers will warrant their mattress for 10 years or less because they know they can’t afford to warrant the bed for any longer. Gel Matrix™ has been proven to last as much as 3 times longer than standard foam, so Intellibed’s warranties reach up to 30 years with a smaller ‘sag tolerance.’ This means you are more likely to pay off your home mortgage before you need to replace your Intellibed mattress.
Gel Matrix™ is uniquely designed to provide both comfort and support, and not just because of it’s patented formula and cooling makeup. Our engineers have dialed in the perfect amount of weight distribution in our grid-column Gel Matrix™ layer that allows your heavier shoulders and hips to sink deeper into the mattress while standing up to fully support the rest of your body in perfect spinal alignment. The patented column-buckling design of the Gel Matrix™ layer gently cradles your entire body, leading to a better night’s sleep.

To get the real benefits of gel in your sleep surface, you need to get the only mattress that has a full layer of Gel Matrix™.
