GelFoamBed Product Review



For the last 30 days we have been testing out the King size Venus Halcyon-Comfort Mattress offered by GelFoamBed. What intrigued us most about the GelFoamBed mattresses were how they are enhanced with billions of microscopic air capsules which act to enhance the support properties while reducing pressure on critical areas of the body. These mattresses are also combined with Eco Flex Layers and Support Core Technology, meaning you receive the ultimate good nights sleep.

Memory foam was developed in 1966 under a contract by NASA to improve the safety of aircraft cushions. The foam has an open-cell solid structure that matches pressure against it, yet slowly springs back to its original shape. NASA released memory foam to the public in the early 1980’s. The first memory foams were hard to work with because the manufacturing process was unreliable. As the process got easier to work with, memory foam started showing up in hospitals where patients had to be immobile in a bed for long periods of time, proven to provide relief and support.

Our Experience

When ordering from GelFoamBed, there are two distinct mattresses to choose from, the Miranda Halycon-Support MattressVenus Halycon-Comfort Mattress and the Triton-Haycon Firm (special order). We opted for the Venus Mattress as it is a more plush and overall thicker Eco Flex foam. If you were interested in a more Medium-Firm type of mattress, then the Miranda may be more suitable to your taste.

With most mattresses we have found that there is a bit of an adjustment period. Many brands will even encourage users to wait a full 30 days to fully experience all that a new mattress has to offer.

Breaking in a new mattress requires time and patience. While some new mattress owners may not experience a noticeable break-in period, it’s common for others to take over a month before feeling fully comfortable on their new bed.

However, we did not experience this break-in period whatsoever!

We were pleasantly surprised to find that the bed was equal parts firm as it was soft and offered us both an incredibly peaceful and restless-free nights sleep.

The arrival of the mattress was incredibly quick, if you are in the market for a mattress of high-quality that can be delivered to your doorstep in no time at all- GelFoamBed can get it to you.

Of course, like any bed-in-a-box type of mattress this package was a beast in itself, so be aware when ordering (especially a King+) that this is going to be a hefty box requiring the help of two people to unpack.

One the vacuum-sealed mattress is removed from the box, you can begin to immediately hear and see the mattress expand itself! You simply will need to cut away the remaining plastic seal to see your bed come alive right before your eyes.

Within seconds (seriously!) the mattress was fully expanded and ready to be enjoyed. There was no annoying waiting period or inflation time wasted. We were bouncing and enjoying our new mattress within moments of unpacking it.

The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) states that:

SLEEP IS AN INFLUENTIAL FACTOR THAT AFFECTS THE QUALITY OF TRAINING, GIVEN ITS IMPLICATIONS ON THE RECOVERY PROCESS…Sleep deprivation can contribute to poor performance through reduced motivation and efficiency of cognitive processes, increasing perceived effort, and limiting physiological recovery responses.

Therefore, any athletes reading this product review should be made aware of the severity that sleep plays on our cognitive and physical performance. This need for quality rest ultimately increases the need for a sound mattress that you can rely on to provide you with a great nights rest, much like the one you see above.
