Sleep Number® vs. Air Beds Unlimited

Sleep Number®* was a marketing term that was coined by the Select Comfort® Corporation to describe the different firmness levels available on their various adjustable air mattresses. Subsequently, Select Comfort® Corporation changed their legal corporate name to Sleep Number® Corporation  The basic premise behind a Sleep Number® is the fact that each individual has his or her own body shape/mass.   As a result, each person needs a mattress that will meet his or her unique requirements for comfort and support.


To assist their customers in determining their initial Sleep Number®, the Select Comfort®* Corporation provides them with a starting guideline. The suggested rules of thumb are based on information such as height, weight, and sleeping habits. The number also varies based on the model of air mattress that the customer is thinking about purchasing.

Although originally conceived by Select Comfort┬« to illustrate the adjustability of their air mattresses, the term number bed has since been expanded to generically describe all beds that have adjustable firmness controls, with digital readouts.  In addition, a large number of other air beds also employ the concept of dual Number Readouts.  This technology provides couples with the ability to adjust their own sides of the bed as they see fit and without compromise.
