From the mattress through to the foundation,
Sealy Posturepedic is designed to provide the perfect balance of correct support and superior comfort.
The concept of orthopedically correct support was first realised in the 1950s. Sealy in the US worked with Dr. Addison, an orthopedic surgeon and authority on the treatment of back pain.
The correct alignment of the skeletal system was critical in achieving proper relaxation of the muscles during sleep. Sealy developed strict criteria to achieve orthopedically correct support, based on the relative angles and alignment of the skeletal system of the body at rest.
At Sealy, pressure mapping is part of the product development program. It is not used to determine individual body’s pressure profiles, but to ensure every Sealy Posturepedic® product specification adheres to the pressure relief criteria as set out by the Orthopedic Advisory Board.
Great comfort and support have no value if the mattress loses its support or comfort characteristics after a short time. That’s why Sealy invests a great deal of time and money into its Research and Development (R&D) facility. Raw materials are tested to ensure the durability and performance of every component used in the manufacture of our bedding meets Sealy’s own standard. Every component is put through a rigorous series of tests initially and then on an ongoing basis to ensure consistency of performance.
Over the years, we have established benchmarks for comfort, support and durability to which every piece of bedding that leaves our manufacturing plants must adhere. This underpins the product guarantee and ensures Sealy’s very low rate of product returns.
