The iSense Classic is an adjustable-firmness mattress made with multiple layers of premium foam and targeted air chambers. The iSense Hybrid Premier features the best of foam, pocket coils, and targeted air chambers to achieve adjustable firmness. Both offer the key feature when it comes to alleviating back pain: variety. Traditional innerspring mattresses only offer one level of firmness and can’t offer adjustability. 

With twenty adjustable settings on both sides of an iSense bed, the comfort and firmness adjust according to what feels best to you. You will also find consistent pressure relief at all 20 adjustable settings. Whether you feel most comfortable and supported on a soft or medium-firm mattress, you will experience pressure-relief for your back and joints in every setting.

There are a variety of reasons people suffer from back pain. This means that no particular firmness will work for everyone. iSense Hybrid Premier mattresses offer a range of 20 different firmness and comfort settings, from soft to firm. Each setting offers a range of support so you can find what works best for your body weight, unique back pain, and whichever sleeping position you prefer. 

In addition, all iSense mattresses offer consistent pressure relief in every setting. So as your health needs change, you can adjust the comfort and firmness, knowing you will find pressure relief all night long.

It is commonly assumed that a medium-firm to firm mattress offers the best support for back and hip pain. However, the issue with this assumption is that people experience many different kinds of back and hip pain for a variety of reasons. And what might work for one may not work for others. 

That is the benefit of an adjustable firmness mattress like those made by iSense. With twenty comfort settings, you don’t have to decide ahead of time on one firmness. You can adjust your mattress to experience the comfort and support offered by plush to firm settings and then determine what feels best to you. What is unique about iSense adjustable mattresses is the level of pressure relief you experience. Though the firmness changes at each setting, the pressure relief for your back, hips and joints remains consistent.

What’s better for back and hip pain? With iSense, you get to decide.

This mattress adjusts using an app on your smartphone, or the remote provided. You can easily increase or decrease the firmness of your side of the mattress in increments of five.

If you go to sleep without pain and wake up with chronic back pain, your mattress is likely to blame. You might experience your mattress sinking, sagging, or dipping, which are signs of wear from prolonged use. Your hips and shoulders might feel sharp pressure points while you are trying to get comfortable. These are signs your mattress might be causing your chronic back pain. 

If you know your traditional memory foam mattress is causing you back pain, the best way to test another mattress is to sleep on it. It takes about two weeks for your body to adjust to the feel of a new bed. 

If your mattress is causing your back pain, it is likely time for a change. Experience iSense pressure point relief at all 20 comfort settings for yourself—take advantage of the iSense 180-Night, risk-free trial today.

Joint pain is caused by a variety of factors and can vary widely from person to person. However, some types of joint pain can be caused by sleeping on a mattress that doesn’t provide enough support. You might be sleeping on this kind of mattress if you go to sleep without pain and wake up with joint pain.

Your hybrid mattress should relieve aches and pains after sleep, not cause them. iSense mattresses offer both adjustability and consistent pressure relief.
Stomach sleepers usually prefer a slightly firmer mattress until they experience iSense adjustable mattresses and determine the best setting for themselves.

It is commonly assumed that a firmer mattress is better for upper back pain, but this is not necessarily the case. 

A firm mattress might not be the most comfortable or supportive mattress for some forms of back pain.
