Ergonomics in Bedding

Ergonomics is the science of shaping products so they best fit the human body.

Ergonomics is not a fad or opinion it is a science.

Over 20 years of research has seen the principles of ergonomics included in the development of bedding taking it beyond the normal standard of beds or mattresses that you can buy in any mattress store.

Ergonomic sleep solutions can be easily adjusted to support the contours of your natural shape thus providing you with relief at your shoulders, extra support to your lumbar/lower back region and comfort to your hips.

In fact, our ErgoLife™ products are the only ergonomic mattress, base and lumbar systems on the market that have been independently tested by Macquarie University, Melbourne University and Dorhman Consulting leading expert ergonomists.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme has also assessed our ErgoLife™ products and we are now proud to be registered providers.

Our ErgoLife™ products are also recognised by the Australian Government as a health aid, meaning they are GST free, a saving no other retailer can offer.

At Beds for Backs it’s not just about selling more mattresses. We want to help you find the best mattress for your body, so day after day you wake up feeling well rested, pain free and ready to take on your day.


We don’t believe in “one size fits all” around here. We don’t all wear the same shoes or clothes, so why would we all buy the same mattress? If a “one size fits all” mattress is what you’re wanting, you might be in the wrong place… Perfection is personalised; what suits Sally definitely doesn’t always suit Sam. That’s why we’re all about adjustable ergonomic sleep products, that are the right fit for your body and your preferences.


Support needs to be personalised.

So, when it comes to finding the right mattress, the answer is always ‘ergonomic’.

We're all different


Think about it in context…

Picture a stadium full of people; people of all ages. No two are the same, they’re all different shapes, sizes, heights and weights. They’ve all come from different places and have different preferences. They all have different goals, different jobs, different needs and different habits.

Does it look like “one size fits all” is a great option to you?
No, we don’t think so either.

It’s not us versus them, it’s ergonomics versus bad sleep.

Better for every body and every budget


If you’re going to spend a third of your life anywhere,
you deserve to know it looks after your body… in every way.

When it comes to healthy sleep, support and wellbeing, there’s no such thing as “one size fits all” – and we have the scientific evidence to prove it.

Unlike a conventional mattress, an ergonomic mattress is engineered to support your body for a better night’s sleep. Designed to hug the contours of your unique physique, an ergonomic mattress can be fully adjusted to your shape and height, providing much needed pressure relief and tailored shoulder and hip support.

The secret is finally out….

Times are changing. Sleeping on an adjustable, ergonomic foundation is no longer reserved for hospital beds and nursing homes. Healthy sleep is essential for a healthy life. And everyone knows it. Now, more than ever, people of all ages are embracing products designed specifically for their needs. That’s what our ergonomic mattresses and beds are – sleep solutions that adjust to your body, your needs and your life.

You deserve an ergonomic transformation
