In 2009, after Phil Torbet, the inventor of the Perfect Pressure mattress, created the technology, Stanford University’s Sleep Sciences Clinic was contacted to see if they could independently confirm that his technology would improve sleep quality. Dr. Clete Kushida, a sleep expert at Stanford, with the help of Stanford researchers, tested 30 different participants and filmed them sleeping at night on their own mattresses and on an earlier version of the Perfect Pressure mattress. Each of the 30 participants was then asked to answer a questionnaire (see results below) and given the opportunity to keep the Perfect Pressure mattress or return to their old mattress.
All 30 participants chose to keep the Perfect Pressure mattress and the results of their questionnaires clearly confirmed Phil’s multi-zone construction technology was an important breakthrough in sleep science. Phil knew that he had an architecture that worked but the cost of producing the mattress tested by the Stanford researchers was very expensive.Phil spent the next few years trying to make the mattress affordable and finally in 2014 he developed a mattress construction, using polyurethane foam instead of memory foam, that could be affordably manufactured and one which reduced the problems often reported with memory foam including sleeping hot and restriction-of-movement.
By now the original 2009 tests conducted by Dr. Kushida were dated so Phil once again approached a sleep expert from
Stanford, Dr. Jed Black, and asked him to test his new design against all of the present national brands including Tempur-Pedic, Sleep Number, Simmons, Sealy, Serta and Casper. Once again, the results were conclusive. CLICK HERE to see the results.
In 2017, Earl Takefman, Perfect Pressure's CEO, was faced with the problem that his wife found the original Perfect Pressure mattress to be too firm for her side of the bed. Additionally, some who were returning the original mattress claimed it was TOO FIRM and others claimed it was TOO SOFT. Clearly, A one-firmness-for-all mattress was not the solution.
He set out to solve the problem and created the Morphiis brand of personalized sleep products. The new brand name was intended to symbolizes the 'morphing' that occurs when the mattress owner changes the configuration of each side of the mattress to match the desires of each sleeper.
First, he created the Topper Plus and applied for patents on his design(now issued) and then he tackled the mattress itself (patent pending) and finally the pillow. The result was Perfect Pressure's new program on products that can be personalized and customized to the desire of an individual sleeper. No longer are mattress purchasers forced to choose a mattress where the firmness has been chosen for them.
