Simmons Gains Patent for Transflexion Technology
August 5, 2010,
ATLANTA--Simmons has secured a patent for Transflexion Comfort Technology, which the company describes as a foam "break in" process designed to ensure that a mattress feels the same at home as it does on the retail floor.
A company statement said the technology can help reduce the number of mattress returns to retailers. The Transflexion process preconditions a bed's foam layers to remove "false firmness" from a mattress. This happens in traditional polyurethane foams because the gases stay trapped inside the foam cells until they are gradually released through repeated use of the bed.
