Boyd Awarded Patent For New Multi-Chamber Air Mattress Design

Boyd Specialty Sleep has received a patent from the USPTO for its new air mattress design, which features contiguous air chambers surrounded by a peripheral air chamber.

The company developed the design to minimize the problem of edge-sagging often found in multi-chamber air models and to increase the structural integrity and overall comfort of the mattress.

The proprietary design involves two contiguous, inflatable air chambers that are connected side-by-side, and then connected to another air chamber that’s located around the perimeter. A remote-controlled air pump is connected to each of the chambers.

“The peripheral chamber makes it much easier for sleepers to get on or off the mattress and virtually removes any possibility of roll-off during the night,” president Denny Boyd said. “This innovation successfully addresses edge compression that’s often associated with multi-chamber air mattresses, and accomplishes everything we’d hoped for in terms of edge-to-edge support and comfort.”

Under the licensed Broyhill name, Boyd will introduce two Lux Aire models at $799 and $999 in queen. Available on a foundation or power base, the UPS-shippable beds use layers of visco foam and high-resilience poly foam and are offered in stretch knit covers with cooling capability.
