Except for the color of the cover, the Easy Rest innerspring mattress by Paramount Mattress seems to be a one-sided no-flip version of the Med Care. Supported by the 13-ga. Bonnell coil innerspring unit, this model has an insulator pad, a high-density foam pad, and a cover quilted with fire barrier.
With their hourglass shape, the Bonnell coils have an immediate cushioning response followed by deep down support. Tied together in rows by helical wire, a Bonnell coil array is very stable with consistent support. Other types of coils are more conforming to one degree or another, but these springs are the least expensive to fabricate and assemble. One drawback is motion transfer, a trait shared with continuous coils. However, this is an issue for two sleepers, not for a healthcare bed which only has one person at a time.
The top and bottom of the Bonnell coil innerspring are bound by perimeter rods. The top rod provides edge support for the sleeping surface to prevent edge sag. This makes getting into and out of bed easier and makes sitting on the edge practical. It also prevents rolling off due to edge collapse.
The beige-colored cover fabric is quilted to a fire barrier to meet federal flammmability standards. Not only the top, but the borders (side) and foundation are also quilted. The multi-needle quilting is more durable than single-needle work.
Atop the innerspring is an insulator pad. This transitions support from the coils to the high-density foam comfort pad. The insulator also protects the foam from damage by the springs.
The comfort pad of the Easy Rest cushions the sleeper from the coils. It, along with the insulator, smooths out the support of the individual coils. This foam, while cushioning, still keeps the support firm, a predictable surface with just enough depression to ease pressure points.
A slatted wood foundation is provided for an Easy Rest mattress set. The 1" thick by 3" wide slats support the mattress with just enough give to be a shock absorber. The sides of the foundation have the same quilted beige fabric as the mattress. With additional cost, a Semi-Flex advanced design box spring from Leggett & Platt can be ordered for the Easy Rest mattress.
Like the Med Care, the Easy Rest is covered by Paramount Mattress with a 5-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
