Traditional memory foam has been so popular for a specific reason and that is that it reduces pressure points. We’re all familiar with this image of the hand in the foam and the indentation it leaves as the foam slowly rises to its original shape. What that’s doing is absorbing pressure away from your body, and that’s a real plus, that’s really what you want in a bed. But taken to an extreme what happens is you tend to cradle into the product. And when you cradle into it the mattress it rolls up around your body and traps heat. The Linebacker Mattress integrates 3 technologies to address temperature control; STA-COOL GEL, Serene Foam, and specially designed air channels.
The Linebacker Mattress integrates medical grade STA-Cool gel in the top comfort layers. It’s specially formulated to blend into the memory foam so it sits close to your skin and helps keep your skin cool. STA-Cool is the type of gel that’s using in prosthesis, on wheelchair pads, anywhere that you need a lot of pressure relief and relief from heat. And what makes the gel in the Linebacker Mattress unique is that we pour it ourselves. We buy the components, blend them together, and then apply them to the memory foam. The benefit of pouring your own gel is that you can control the process from beginning to end. You know what’s in it, you know how it’s put together, how much of it is applied to the product. Most other mattress manufacturers have to buy a component that’s pre manufactured, they simply assemble it.
The linebacker Mattress takes memory foam to the next level by using Serene Foam; a special type of memory foam that isn’t heat sensitive. That means that unlike traditional memory foam Serene foam maintains the same feel regardless of room temperature and body temperature. Most people who are really active sleep hot, especially if you work out within a few hours of going to sleep. With the Linebacker Mattress you won’t find yourself constantly changing positions like you have with a traditional memory foam mattress.
Another way we address heat is by channeling air flow within the mattress. And we did it by cutting areas between the memory foam and the polyurethane foam where air can travel through the bed and you move around through the night. The result of these air channels and the Serene foam is your skin is going to be drier, and when your skin is drier you’re less likely to react to changes in ambient temperature. The borders of the Linebacker Mattress use green spacer cloth, very similar to the type of material used in running shoes and other applications to allow air to move freely while maintaining structural integrity. The green spacer cloth allows the air to move in and out of your mattress to keep your skin cooler and mainting proper temperature control.
