Helix Sleep was founded a little over 2 years ago. During this time, the company has experienced tremendous growth and popularity. Although the mattress was well received from the start, Helix saw an opportunity to build upon their early success by improving their original mattress.

The original Helix Sleep mattress used synthetic latex as it’s primary support foam. Although early sales were brisk, there were a small amount of heat retention issues. In December 2016, Helix switched from latex to Helix Dynamic Foam (HDF). This proprietary foam is a blend of high-grade poly-foam with viscoelastic properties.  It’s a nice blend of the best features of both technologies.  The use of HDF has also significantly increased air flow and heat regulation capabilities. This makes Helix a much cooler sleeping mattress.

Body mass influences how firm a mattress is perceived. The original foam, left petite individuals not always feeling the same pressure relief. Helix Dynamic’s Increased foam density options changed everything. Personalized comfort is now possible for all body types. Customization is a unique feature that sets Helix apart from other mattresses.  It’s also the edge that makes this company’s future look extremely bright.

Layer 1: 2" Helix Dynamic Foam:

Helix Dynamic Foam is neither Memory foam or Latex. It combines the best of qualities of both while offering support and conformity. 

Unlike Memory foam, it does not have heat retention issues. It's unique open celled characteristics allow Helix Dynamic foam to sleep cool.

This foam possess the bounce and resiliency of latex but without the allergens. The original mattress did use latex but Helix Dynamic was determined to have superior benefits. Varying foam densities allows for flexibility in firmness level. Motion transfer is also limited.

add a dimension not commonly found in a bed in the box type mattress. These coils offer more support and responsiveness than foam alone. They do so without affecting the beds ability to reduce motion transfer. Isolating movements is an awesome feature for couples who don't want to disturb their sleep partner. Micro-coils also contribute to additional air flow. This helps keep the Helix cool and comfortable.

Every aspect of the Helix product development was designed with individual customized comfort in mind. Varying foam densities accommodate unique firmness preferences.

The Cover:

The Helix cover is made of a thin, smooth layer of polyester. By design, this soft and lightweight fabric permits foam and coil layers to as responsive as possible. This further enhances pressure relief and decreases motion transfer.

Personalize your comfort:

Comfort customization is where Helix really shines. The company offers a brief sleep quiz to determine the proper firmness level for your individual comfort preference.

Having spent many years in the bedding industry, their method really resonated with us. It's reminiscent of the qualifying process a quality sleep shop would initiate. But, instead of then taking you to mattresses that best fit your requirements, Helix builds a mattress specific to your comfort and support needs. They start with some basic information then move on to more specific details about your sleep habits and preferences.

Customize for couples:

Finding a mattress for couples with distinctive comfort preferences can be quite challenging. With traditional mattresses, shopping for a new bed ends up in one of two ways. Either one of you settles on firmer or softer than you want or you compromise on something in the middle. Both outcomes leave one or both of you less than satisfied with your purchase. Helix Sleep calculates the requirements of each partner's individual needs and creates on mattress designed to accommodate both of you. This is a truly unique concept and greatly increases your odds of a good match.
