Kingsdown's bedMATCH Diagnostic System Changing the Way Consumers Shop for Mattresses

MEBANE, N.C., June 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kingsdown, Inc., a leading sleep solutions company, continues to change the mattress retail environment and the way consumers select the best mattress for their needs. The "bed-tech" company is the brain behind bedMATCH™, a patented diagnostic system that uses science to determine the right mattress best suited for a person's body type and sleeping position.

Basic physiological and sleep habit information are entered into the confidential bedMATCH portal where hundreds of data points are calculated and a colored coded mattress recommendation is printed. The data sheet cuts through the clutter and directs consumers to the mattress that meets their specific needs. The color spectrum includes gold (ultra-soft support), green (medium-soft support), blue (medium-firm support) and red (very firm support).

"Buying a mattress is one of the most dreaded shopping experiences for consumers because they often feel intimated by sales people and directed towards certain brands, rather than the best bed for their sleeping needs," says Frank Hood, President and CEO, Kingsdown. "bedMATCH is an agnostic diagnostic system invented by Kingsdown employees through years of research and development that recommends the best bed in the store, with the right support for that shopper, allowing them to feel assured that they are getting the best option before spending their hard-earned money."
