South Bay International is the Inventor and Patent holder of the edge support technology, the Wedge. While this technology has been licensed for use by others, and there are imitators, it is a proprietary feature of the Sleep Science line. This technology supports and stabilizes the complete sleeping surface. The Wedge prevents sagging and extends the life of the mattress by providing support and stability when sitting on the edge of the bed. The mattress supports the weight of the body in a way that memory foam mattresses without the Wedge do not.

The science behind the Wedge:
• The Wedge is constructed of premium quality, high density HR polyurethane foam.
• It provides needed support to the outer edge sitting surface of the mattress.
• The Wedge extends the effective sleep surface of the memory foam mattress by 20%, effectively allowing for an edge to edge sleeping surface.
• The Wedge adds longevity and durability by supporting and reinforcing the overall structural integrity of the mattress.


The Sleep Science Proprietary Air Channel provides dramatically increased air flow through the mattress core and reduces friction for a cooler sleeping surface. Its unique construction makes it the perfect visco memory foam mattress for use with an adjustable bed. The proprietary composition of the foam and its application provide a flexible yet stable base surface for visco memory foam.

The science behind the Sleep Science Proprietary Air Channel Base:
• Permits optimal efficiency of air circulation throughout the mattress base.
• The Air Channel is relief cut in 1” grooves that run horizontally and vertically.
• Responds like individual springs as it absorbs the force of the body from the upper layers of the mattress core and
   sleep surface.
• Reduces frictions between the base and upper mattress layers.
• Allows the mattress to conform more closely to the contours of the body.
