Created by Roma®, the ME Mattress uses patent-pending and industry disrupting Hexicoil™ therapeutic modules that allow you to DYOB - Design Your Own Bed!
More than a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis, according to a new study in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. This is the first study to document estimates of self-reported healthy sleep duration (7 or more hours per day) for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society recommend that adults aged 18–60 years sleep at least 7 hours each night to promote optimal health and well-being. Sleeping less than seven hours per day is associated with an increased risk of developing chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and frequent mental distress. So Design Your Own Bed, it out to make changes.
“As a nation we are not getting enough sleep,” said Wayne Giles, M.D., director of CDC’s Division of Population Health. “Lifestyle changes such as going to bed at the same time each night; rising at the same time each morning; and turning off or removing televisions, computers, mobile devices from the bedroom, can help people get the healthy sleep they need.”
The secret here is "The halves." The halves, called Bedmates, allow you to easily customize the firmness on your side of the bed. The ME Mattress™ also unzips for quick vacuuming and cleaning! Get unique musculoskeletal support on each side of the bed, and change it whenever you want with interchangeable and reversible Hexicoils!
Your “one size fits all” mattress is inadequate to accommodate a variety of consumers’ sleep needs, not to mention body shapes, and also leads to more than 50,000 mattresses each day ending up in landfills in the U.S. alone, according to DYOB founder Karen Day Roma.
The materials are environmentally friendly and easily cleanable. If a part of the bed is damaged, it can easily be replaced or thrown in the wash without having to abandon the mattress entirely. This ensures that the bed will last longer than any other bed on the market, as in many ways it is like buying multiple beds in one.
Sleepers will now have the ultimate in flexibility when designing their own bed, with a number of interchangeable components to choose from including different colors, comfort and support materials.
Removable Washable Cover: Natural Hex (at launch, look for our cool tek and organic covers)

Consumers will have a variety of environmentally safe foam and latex support materials to select from when creating their bed. Depending on the their body type and the level of pressure displacement needed determines which bedmate option is best for each partner. As your body changes, you can order extra modular parts. Authorized chiropractors can perform a precision “bedfitting” ™ to give you the proper musculoskeletal support.
