The Sleep Disorders Center of Alabama is proud to use only the highest quality mattresses made specifically to provide better support and comfort for your muscles and joints. To ensure that our patients will get the necessary sleep we need to perform the best quality studies, we researched mattresses and bed systems and chose the two mattresses below from Selectabed.com. We are presently using these mattresses in our diagnostic sleep rooms. The staff is very pleased with the results thus far and we have had a great response from our patients as well.**

The following is the Selectabed.com brochure for the mattresses and information from their site.


The TRI-PEDIC™ Memory Foam Mattress

"You Probably Never Dreamed that Sleep Could Feel This Good!"

Introducing the Tri-Pedic™, the First Three-Layer Memory Foam Mattress that supports and protects your body in any environment.

Whether you are suffering from back pain, neck pain, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis or you just need to get a better night's sleep, the Tri-Pedic™ pressure sensitive memory foam mattress may be just what the doctor ordered. Created by Dr. Rick Swartzburg, D.C., to help his patients suffering from all types of pain, the Tri-Pedic™ is the first three-layer, pressure sensitive memory foam mattress with three different foam densities.
We normally sell 4lb., 4.5lb. and 5lb. densities. Through listening to all or our customer feedback, we have learned that each density has it's own advantage. A 5lb. density is more expensive than a 4lb. density, but it will support you better, and be more temperature sensitive. Although a 5lb. density is what *Tempur-pedic® uses on their mattresses, many of our customers have reported that it can be too hard when used by itself, especially in cold temperatures. On the other hand, the soft and plush feeling of a 4lb. density makes you instantly comfortable, but lacks the extra support of a 5lb. density. Therefore we are proud to feature the Tri-Pedic™, the first three-layer, pressure sensitive, memory foam mattress with 3 different foam densities to give you immediate comfort, with the best support system available.
The top two levels total over 4 inches of the highest quality memory foam available for a 9 inch total mattress. We use our special 4lb., 10 ILD memory foam over the higher density 5lb., 20 ILD memory foam. We follow this up with a very supportive high resiliency polyurethane base. The Tri-Pedic™ memory foam mattress uses our specially designed hand stitched hypo-allergenic, stretchable terry cover that is easily removable for washing. It has a special breathable design that will ventilate better that most covers to keep your body temperature constant, so you will not have to worry about this mattress getting too hot. The Tri-Pedic™ is soft enough to contour to the bumps and curves of your body, but firm enough to provide proper support and will never bottom out.
The Tri-Pedic™ uses similar density memory foam as the Tempur-pedic®, but never gets hard when the room temperature drops. We are so convinced that you will not find a more comfortable mattress that we are offering a 4-month trial that includes the option of having us pay for the shipping of another mattress if you are unsatisfied for any reason at all. We also back this mattress with a 30-year limited warranty. The Tri-Pedic™ has even been tested and given the award for space technology innovation in the market place for 2005 by the very prestigious global online news sours - SpaceDaily. As you can tell, we are extremely proud of this mattress and want you to experience first hand why the Tri-Pedic™ and Soft-Pedic™ are the best mattresses you will every own!

The Fibro-Pedic™ Memory Foam Mattress

The first mattress created just for Fibromyalgia sufferers!

Created by Dr. Rick Swartzburg, D.C., to help his wife and patients suffering from Fibromyalgia, the Fibro-pedic™ contains a unique combination of hypo-allergenic foam layers designed to take pressure off of the many individual muscle pressure points that Fibromyalgia sufferers experience. The Fibro-Pedic offers immediate comfort, with the best support system available. We accomplish this by adding a gradually increasing denser mix of memory foam layers over latex and polyurethane foam layers. This allows the mattress to be soft enough to contour to the bumps and curves of your body, but firm enough to provide proper support and will never bottom out.
Unlike other memory foam mattresses, from the moment you lay on the Fibro-pedic™ you will feel the instant support of your total body, without an increase in pressure to your tender points.
The special memory foam we use in this mattress never gets hard when the room temperature drops. The Fibro-pedic™ uses our specially designed hand stitched hypo-allergenic, stretchable terry cover that is easily removable for washing. It has a special breathable design that will ventilate better than most covers to keep your body temperature constant, so you will not have to worry about this mattress getting too hot. We are so convinced that you will not find a more comfortable mattress that we are offering a 120-day trial and will pay for shipping of another mattress if you are unsatisfied for any reason at all. As you can tell, we are extremely proud of this mattress and want you to experience first hand why the Fibro-pedic™ is helping Fibromyalgia sufferers remember what it means to sleep soundly and wake up without pain.
