About Simmons Mattresses

Sleep is important, as it is a vital part of your cycle where your body can rest and recharge for the next day. The quality of your sleep is something that has continually proven to be a key factor in your short-term and long-term health, as well as a major determinant in your focus, reaction time, mood, and problem-solving abilities. A large part of your sleeping experience is reliant on where you sleep, which is why it is important to select a mattress that supports your body in this vital recovery process.

For over a century, Simmons has been striving to satisfy this need for a good night’s sleep through creating some of the most comfortable and supportive mattresses around. The company continually dedicates itself to creating the best mattresses in the industry, using the latest technology and most pioneering research on sleep to ensure that their product is the best on the market.

A History in Sleeping

Simmons History

This commitment towards innovation and research is nothing new for Simmons. In 1889, Zalmon G. Simmons, the founder of a company that back then was known as the Northwestern Wire Mattress company, became the first brand to integrate spiral springs into woven mattresses, making them far cheaper and more widely available to the general public. To this day, a large percentage of mattresses on the market consist of spring woven, a testament to the impact of this groundbreaking innovation.

Another innovation that may surprise you is the fold-out couch bed. Yes, Simmons is behind that too! In 1940, Simmons released the Hide-A-Bed, a revolutionary sofa that contains a fold-out spring mattress, which has since become a staple in several households, particularly if you were in a pinch and needed to host a guest.

This hit continued to cement the Simmons brand’s reputation as the solution to all sleeping problems. Other memorable products from Simmons included the standard sizing of mattresses (ie: king and queen size), the electric blanket, and the no-flip mattress. Whether you know it or not, chances are you have used an innovation from Simmons at some point in your life!

Continually Innovating

While the easier route for Simmons would be to rest on the laurels set by its previous innovations, Simmons today is just as forward-thinking and pioneering as before. Introduced in 2008, the Hybrid mattress is the combination of the soft comfort of memory foam with the supportive quality of traditional innerspring coils. This allows you to reap the benefits of both, creating a sleeping experience without compromise.

Building on that innovation is the BeautyRest Smartmotion base, an adjustable base that tailors the angling of different parts of the mattress to your exact liking. This allows you to enjoy certain benefits that you would miss out with a flat surface, such as improved blood circulation, better spinal alignment, and more.

To control the base and track the effects of all this on your body, there is a corresponding app that enables you to track your sleep progress, enabling you to find out exactly what kind of sleep settings are good for your body, as well as better understanding what positively and negatively affects your sleep. Good sleep is something that you should be aspiring for in your everyday life, and thanks to these incredible innovations from Simmons, it is easier to monitor and achieve than ever.
