Dubbed as “The Sports Mattress” this is a specially designed no-flip luxury mattress that comes with enhanced pressure relief. The mattress is made from latex and memory foam. It is also featured with the following patented enhancements:The Patented Lumbar Zone Technology – covering one third of the mattress to support the hips and the shoulders. The Patented Lumbar Zone Quilting System – a densified quilt pattern that is supposed to make the mattress a lot durable, especially with its added memory foam layer that provides additional pressure relief of the body. A Cool Max® Cover – promoting cooler comfort that helps with rest and deep sleep. The Chiro-Life Edge Butterfly Steel Encasement – which makes the mattress sturdier and less susceptible to sagging and breaking down.
