On number 3 the smart bed is from ReST but it is not much famous as the two upper described brands are but no doubt the ReST has a successful image in the sector of medical and some of the best and the advanced technological upgrades shows their expertise in the field of best smart bed manufacturing.

ReST is basically Responsive surface technology L.L.C, the ReST is a part of a well-reputed company called Patientech is a manufacturer of fabric for healthcare and also for the sports and sleep industry.
The concept behind the manufacturing of the ReST smart bed was an inspiration from the Patientech products, the bed was designed to increase comfort and to reduce the moving of the bed in case of paralyzed or for coma patients.

5 body zones by sleep number

I want to quote the words said by the senior VP sales, Mr. Bryant Looper “The founder of ReST invented the sensor and he says that why you don’t move the bed instead of patient and why you pledge a nurse to move right or left the patient, after every 30 minutes”.
The ReST is an abbreviation of “Responsive Surface Technology” and a remarkable sensor, in actual that is made of fabric.

The ReST smart bed facilitates the person with high accuracy, by measuring the body pressure and the fabric also acts as a carbon-infused semiconductor and ignites about 2000 sensors for more accuracy.
When the sensors start reading, ReST automatically starts adjustments using the latest air advance system which observes your sleeping pattern and creates the best and effectual comfort levels for the person or patient.

Its function of auto-adjusting is like the sleep number in which the sleep number beds uses two auto-adjusting chambers from which one is punched at the bottom but ReST uses 5 individual air compartments that correlate with your body parts like head, shoulders, back, hips, and legs.

The ReST measures your comfort levels more precisely according to your personal preferences and this system builds the ReST, the best modular system.
This system is good because if a single part fails to work then the ReST will not replace the whole product they will only change that part.

Different modes of ReST:

You can operate ReST in 3 modes.

  • Manual mode
  • Auto position mode
  • Automatic mode

Manual mode:

The manual mode is totally controlled by the user and the user can adjust the 5 different zones available in the chamber of the bed. So the user can get the best comfort according to his or her problem.
For instance, if you are suffering from hip and shoulder pain or problem ten you can easily adjust the level at which you are comfortable.

Auto position mode:

In this mode, the mattress automatically senses how you take rest, on your back or on your side. Once, when your lock the setting off, the ReST will come over these and auto-adjust when you use this bed.

Automatic mode:

This mode is fully in the hand of technology and no need to give any command. The pinned 2000 sensor never stops finding the pressure points and as they find any point they make the small adjustments for real and you get the best comfort.

Best for Athletes:

It is must to get rest after hard work or hard practice in any sport. The ReST supports the athletes in a professional way because when they suffer from injury they can get the best blood circulation and flow to an easy and fast recovery and also increases the level of oxygen for best rest.

If you have a back pain:

ReST was basically a medical sector bed manufacturer and their goal was the comfort of the patient.
ReST is the best choice if you have back pain. When a patient makes a move on the bed, the ReST smart mattress technology comes to respond and ensures the optimum angle of the spine from head to toe.

The tiny adjustments that are performed by  ReST, they all made in real-time, to get the best comfort. The ReST price for Twin XL is starting from $2600 and the California king size is available at $5600.

Personal preferences are more valuable then the suggestions by other. so it is up to you that which product you buy for your comfort sleep.
