Understanding Your BedFIT Report

by Pam Silvia

Thinking of upgrading your bed? Save yourself some time, and swing by Mattress Land to test out our BedFIT diagnostic tool that is designed to provide bed and product recommendations catered to your sleep needs. Our in-store computerized system develops a personalized report that indicates your perfect support level based on our test bed’s precise pressure and alignment-point readings of your body. Here’s a guide to understanding your BedFIT ideal support rating!

How does BedFIT work?

Developed by our nationally recognized sleep expert, Dr. Robert Oexman, BedFIT recommends SleepFit and name-brand mattresses (like Temper-Pedic and Sealy) that are best suited to your typical sleep position, sleep-related afflictions and height-weight distribution.  

Yes, BedFIT is helpful regardless of sleep position. While it does address lumbar support for back sleepers, side and stomach sleepers do stand to benefit from our exclusive diagnostic tech. It’s all about your body’s distribution of weight. Per Dr. Oexman, “We need to know how far you need to sink into [your] mattress to align your spine properly all night long, so whether you sleep on your back, your side [or] your stomach, we’re gonna be able to fit the right mattress for you.”

What does my BedFIT ideal support rating mean?

Speaking of weight distribution, BedFIT’s ideal support rating addresses this primary factor of mattress shopping directly. With a rating spectrum from 0.5 through 4.5, BedFIT targets the heaviest points of your body to churn out mattress options that provide reinforced support where you need it most. Simply put: the lower the ideal support rating, the firmer the mattress, and conversely, the higher the ideal support rating, the softer the mattress.

And while your instinct may be to go for the plushiest bed possible, we encourage you to put your trust in our diagnostic technology—it could be that a firmer mattress is the answer to your persisting back problems. The possibilities are endless when shopping with BedFIT; from offering split-mattress possibilities for couples with irreconcilable sleep differences to extending temperature-regulating options, Mattress Land truly has your back (or side, or stomach, depending on how you sleep).
