unmet need

In order to address a competitive threat, the Client required a mattress that allowed the end user to select their desired level of firmness.


Sleep Innovations approached Slingshot to create an adjustable firmness mattress that could be changed on-demand by the end user and did not compromise integrity of the mattress if the system did fail.


  • Working prototype was demonstrated to a leading mattress brand, one of the client’s top customers

  • Creation of new intellectual property

  • Mattress remained usable even if the compression mechanism failed



Slingshot developed a quick-to-market solution, while simultaneously evaluating additional technology for future product generations.

Overcoming competitive intellectual property in the space.

Mattress performance enhancement. The firmness change had to be fast and reversible, and the mattress must still be usable if technology fails.
