How do you find the right FlexGel bed for you?

Our Comfort Silhouette Imaging (CSI) system can help!

It's impossible to communicate how good FlexGel beds feel without lying on them, which is why we have installed the amazing CSI system at select Forty Winks stores.

Fun and fast, the CSI system uses scientific mapping technology to allow you to physically experience and visually understand the pressure relieving benefits of FlexGel beds. This technology is used worldwide by hospitals and research centres to study the effects of pressure on the body.



The instore CSI system (underneath) shows the incredible support and pressure relieving characteristics of a layer of FlexGel by comparing it with a normal bed. The top mapping image shows the higher density (red) areas of pressure. Whereas the mapping underneath shows the low-density (blue) areas and improved weight distribution properties of FlexGel.

CSI was designed based on the principle of... Every body is different! This remarkable approach to selecting your next bed. It doesn't select the bed for you. The CSI system allows you to make an intelligent purchasing decision based on your own personal body silhouette. This is real medical science that provides you with live accurate data on how your body reacts to pressure. There's only one computer that can make your final mattress purchasing decision and that is the computer that rests between your ears... Your own brain!


What techonology goes into a FlexGel bed to provide you with the best possible sleeping experience?

FlexGel is a revolutionary cellular material that provides medically proven muscle and joint pressure release allowing better circulation whilst helping your body to relax.

FlexGel beds are made using Outlast®, an adaptive system that manages body heat to ensure the ideal sleeping environment.

Originally developed to protect astronauts against extreme temperature fluctuations in space, the system cleverly absorbs body heat when you're too hot and releases it when you're too cold to maintain an effective comfort zone.

More comfort is assured via adaption to body temperature

  • Less overheating - The temperature regulating benefits of the OUTLASTTM fabric developed for NASA combats hot flashes to help provide a more comfortable night's rest.

  • Every movement on FlexGel products gently distributes air throughout the mattress resisting mattress heat build-up.

  • Less sweating

  • Less chill

  • Active temperature regulation

Everyone's sensitivity to temperature changes is different, yet Outlast® is sophisticated enough to adapt itself to the requirements of more than one person.

Partner Disturbance

The unique design of FlexGel creates an individualised zone for each sleeper to relieve the effects of partner disturbance.


The properties of FlexGel itself help reduce the instances of allergens in the air that can irritate and inflame the nasal passages.
