The Sealy Posturepedic® was designed for a better night’s sleep. Collaborating with the Orthopaedic Advisory Board (OAB), the Sealy Posturepedic® features orthopaedically correct designs that give you everything you need and want when it comes to finding the perfect sleep.

What is Posturepedic®?

Posturepedic® is a contraction of the word posture which is the position in which a person holds their body and orthopaedic which is the medically correct position of the skeletal and structure of the body. As a result, a Sealy Posturepedic® is a culmination of continuous research and ongoin development of the sleep system and their interaction with the human body. The most important thing to note is that when you sleep on a Posturepedic® mattress, you’re sleeping on more than just springs, foam and fabric, you’re sleeping on innovation that gives you better sleep!

Sealy, Leader In Orthopaedic Science
The Posturepedic® Difference

At Sealy, our Posturepedic® mattresses are built strategically to help provide proper support for the entire body with guaranteed comfort all night, every night. To help you achieve this quality night’s sleep, we pride ourselves for working together with the Orthopaedic Advisory Board, which comprise of world leading experts in spinal research. This board of experts collaborates with the Sealy Posturepedic® Research & Development team to focus on the importance of spinal alignment and the quality of your sleep.

This collaboration is the roadmap to developing quality mattresses that are based on scientific and technical research, focused on ensuring that every Sealy owner will be well cared for even while they sleep!

The Posturepedic® Fundamentals

Sealy’s work with the OAB has helped us establish two key pillars of knowledge: the Posturepedic® Principle and our Posturepedic® Support Criteria.

The Posturepedic® Principle

The ideal sleeping position for our body is the same as when we are standing. When the mattress is orthopaedically supporting the body in this alignment, it helps to prevent backaches and related pain. This drives the fundamental aspects of a Posturepedic® mattress. The OAB’s ongoing research gives us insight into the movement of the spine and how alignment changes impact the quality of our sleep.

Posturepedic® Support Criteria

This criteria defines the ideal range of movement for sleepers on their back and sides. The criteria is designed to eliminate misalignment, improve sleep and reduce backache. The OAB collaboration helps us to improve our knowledge and testing capabilities in this criteria.

Meet SAM! We measure performance with SAM

Meet our newest member, SAM (spinal alignment mannequin). SAM was built to assist in measuring the support characteristics of different surfaces and mattresses, while assessing how they perform against our Posturepedic® Support Criteria.

Used in our world leading R&D centres, SAMs are designed and calibrated to move and respond to every mattress in the same manner as our human body would. After undergoing rigorous testing, SAM allows us to gain greater understanding of how the human body interacts with a mattress for better restful sleep.

The Sealy Posturepedic® Secret

A Sealy Posturepedic® mattress is made with 3 fold principles. Support, Comfort and Durability. When the balance between these 3 factors is met, then you’ve find the perfect Sealy Posturepedic® mattress.

Support For You, Every Time

While every mattress aims to provide support, not all mattresses are created equal. That’s why the Sealy Posturepedic® is built on a history of orthopaedic research that provides the right support to fulfil all your posture and sleeping needs.

Inherently different springs provide different support. The Posturepedic® mattresses have inner spring coils that are made of titanium alloy. These metal springs are light but durable and provide the deep support required by the orthopaedic surgeons who designed the first Posturepedic® mattress many years ago.

Because Comfort Is Essential

The comfort element in a Posturepedic® mattress comes from its foam layers. Building a great mattress is more than just stacking them together. All layers need to work collectively to provide the right feel. The right layer in the right place dissipates pressure and relieves body aches and soreness.

Therefore, it takes architectural principles and designs to ensure that all of the layers work together harmoniously to give you the right amount of comfort, all the time. The comfort layers of a Posturepedic® are made of a mixture of memory foam and gel-infused visco which provide extra cushioning, allowing you to ‘sink into’ your mattress for the ultimate comfort.

Durability Means Value

When you sleep on a Sealy Posturepedic®, you can be confident that it’s built to last. All our mattresses are engineered to exceed industry testing standards to ensure they’ll stand the test of time. It’s next-level support and all-over comfort, backed by quality you can trust.

Sealy Posturepedic® mattress combines the best craftmanship and material to provide maximum durability. Our patented Titanium coils are light, durable, heat-tempered twice to maintain their shape and last longer to provide adequate spinal support and proper body alignment. The Unicased® XT locks into the innerspring of the mattress for a consistently stable feel, regardless of where you lie on the mattress’ surface.
