Is It Time to Personalise Your Mattress? How Science Can Help You and Your Partner Find the Right Bed

You don't have to compromise on comfort and support when sharing a bed with your partner. Find out how you can both get optimal support with a personalised mattress.

Snoring, not enough space, restless legs, and teeth grinding are just some of the problems couples face when sharing the same bed. But what about differing levels of comfort and support requirements?

Why you should personalise your shared bed

Ultimately, you and your partner are two different people. Your height, weight, comfort and sleeping position preferences may not be the same. Sleeping on a mattress that may be comfortable for you and uncomfortable for your partner (or vice versa) is a compromise that could lead to health problems for the person who isn't getting the optimal support and comfort from the shared bed. The good news is, it's a compromise that can be avoided. bedMATCH® combined with the My Side™ range of customisable mattresses is happy solution for incompatible bed partners.

What is bedMATCH® technology?

bedMATCH® is a patented diagnostic system exclusively available at Forty Winks stores, that is designed to match you to the mattress best suited for your body type and take the guesswork out of buying the right bed. The bedMATCH® test bed has a built-in computer system and sensors that run over 1000 scientific calculations and 18 statistical body measurements such as your height, the width of your shoulders, hips and waist. The system utilises the data and determines you and your partner's correct levels of postural support.

What makes the My Side™ range of mattresses special?
