Natural Form Adjustable Beds Review
Medical research firm BMC found that the right hospital bed is a must for proper patient care and recovery. Natural Form is a recognized bed manufacturer within the health care and hospitality industries, supplying mattresses to leading organizations such as Mt. Sinai Hospital, Mass General, and the Hilton Garden Inn. Family-owned and operated, Natural Form is a trademark under WCW, Inc., a corporation selling adjustable beds and adjustable bed mattresses around the world.
Natural Form started over three decades ago by supplying beds such as the alternating air mattress to the medical industry, eventually branching out to consumer sleep systems and mattresses. The company’s manufacturing process uses a lean model to reduce waste with large-scale recycling and energy efficiency. Natural Form responds to health concerns about some bedding materials by using phthalate-free urethane in the mattresses and offering hypoallergenic wool covers. At this time, the company is working on converting its manufacturing facility to solar power.

How Natural Form Adjustable Beds Work
Depending on the mattress model, the patented Self Adjusting Technology (SAT) in Natural Form adjustable beds starts with a series of helix-shaped air cylinders or patented Self Conforming Air Springs positions deep in the mattress. These chambers automatically adjust to provide more or less support where your body needs it, without using an air pump and electricity, and you can change the firmness of the mattress using a valve on the side of the bed. A three-inch layer of foam over the cylinders along with a wool mattress cover provides a cozy sleeping surface that stays cool and clean.
The benefits of Natural Form’s SAT is that these mattresses reduce pressure against your body, properly support and adjust to your spine to discourage tossing and turning throughout the night and help you feel warmer or cooler as needed. When you lie on a traditional coil mattress, your spine must conform to the surface. Natural Form adjustable beds conform to your spine for optimal support and comfort.
Natural Form’s adjustable beds and mattresses help treat and provide comfort for back pain, fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis, sleep apnea, arthritis and a variety of other medical conditions. The mattresses increase the quality of sleep, which also can also improve medical symptoms and daytime energy levels.
Natural Form Series S Adjustable Bed
The Natural Form S Series Adjustable Base repositions the bed at the touch of a button on a remote using LP Connect technology to safely raise and lower the head and foot of the bed independently. The S Series adjustable bed features wall hugger technology, so there’s no concern about clearance when you adjust the head of the bed, and your bedside table remains in reach.
Natural Form’s S Series base comes upholstered in your choice of chocolate brown, gray, taupe or black, with attractive wooden legs. Other features are zero gravity positioning, dual massage, under-bed lighting and USB ports for powering your phone, tablet or laptop from the bed. The Natural Form S Series adjustable bed is available in Twin XL, Full XL, Queen and Split California King sizes.
Natural Form Sleep Systems
Natural Form sleep systems consist of the S Series Adjustable Base and one of the company’s adjustable mattresses.
- The Garden Sleep System features Natural Form’s Refresh 200S luxury mattress, used at Hilton Garden Inn hotels. The SAT in this mattress involves up to 80 self-adjusting air chambers under a three-inch breathable hybrid foam comfort layer. The firmness on each side of the Refresh 200S is individually adjustable.
- Natural Form’s Ultimate Euro 300S Sleep System combines the S Series Adjustable Base with the Euro 300S adjustable mattress. This sleep system is very similar to the Garden system, but the Euro 300S cushions the sleeper with four-inches of comfort foam.
Natural Form Adjustable Beds Prices and Sleep Trial
Natural Form does not publish adjustable bed prices. Instead, consumers can call or use a form on the website to request rates for a specific model and size mattress or sleep system. However, you will find prices for Natural Form’s Bed in a Box on the website starting at $799 for a Queen and $949 for a King. We found costs from $1,000 to $3,200 mentioned about the SAT models in online discussions and consumer reviews.
Natural Form’s Sleep Trial lets you try the bed for 90 to 100 days, depending on whether you buy an SAT mattress or a Bed in a Box. If you decide to return the bed in that timeframe, you will receive a refund, and the company will donate the bed to a charitable cause at their discretion.
Natural Form Adjustable Bed Mattresses
Three of Natural Form’s mattresses offer the patented SAT, while the Bed in a Box line provides the comfort of CertiPUR-US certified memory foam.
Bed in a Box memory foam mattresses can be used on any surface and fold to ship in a box, then expand when you remove the box and packaging overlay. Bed in a Box comes in ventilated Plush and gel-infused Firm models, each with a 90-Night Trial and a 10-year guarantee.

Natural Form Complaints
Most Natural Form customers are pleased with their beds after combining all the reviews we read on ConsumerAffairs, themattressunderground.com and other online review sites. The Better Business Bureau-accredited company gets an “A”+ from that organization.
Natural Form scored 4.5 out of 5 stars on Goodbed.com. Even those who left mediocre reviews scored the beds high for sleep quality, and 82 percent recommended the adjustable mattresses. ConsumerAffairs lists twice as many positive reviews to negative reviews. The positive reviews mention responsive and knowledgeable customer service agents, and many recommended Natural Form to family members because of how much their sleep quality improved. One customer complained when Natural Form would not reimburse him for a foam topper purchased from another company and about the smell of the new mattress.
On other review websites, many customers described how the bed improved the quality of their sleep. A common complaint was regarding an inadequate number of air coils in the center of the bed, causing an indentation when customers did not sleep on one side or the other.
Natural Form FAQ
What are my delivery options with a Natural Form adjustable bed?
Natural Form contracts with trained, licensed and insured partners in 48 states to provide their White Glove delivery service. With White Glove delivery, your new mattress or bed gets set up in your bedroom, and the installation team moves the old mattress and box spring to another room. You have the option of having the old bed removed and disposed of, for a fee.
Can I manually adjust my Natural Form adjustable bed?
While Natural Form beds with SAT systems are self-adjusting, you can also use the dials on the side of the mattress to adjust the firmness to your preference. The change can take up to 20 minutes to be noticeable.
What is Natural Form’s CertiPUR-US certification?
Natural Foam has undergone the CertiPUR-US certification process to ensure that the flexible polyurethane foam used in the mattresses meets strict standards for quality, safety, and environmental friendliness. CertiPUR-US is one of the certifications the company maintains, and manufacturing materials are tested regularly for compliance.
Do Natural Form adjustable mattresses transfer movement?
Natural Form makes no claims about being able to jump on one side of the bed without disturbing the other half. However, the mattresses are designed with two separate air systems and provide a higher degree of movement isolation than traditional spring mattresses do.
Do I need to buy a Natural Form bed frame with their mattresses?
While Natural Form’s adjustable bed frames have many benefits, the company’s mattresses are designed to work on any flat surface. If you already have an adjustable frame, you most likely can use a Natural Form mattress on top of it. The only limitation is that slats can’t be too far apart on slatted bed frames to support the air coil chambers.
Your health depends on how well you sleep. Major hospitals and hotels know the difference sleep quality makes and choose Natural Form adjustable mattresses and beds for use by patients and guests. Purchasing a Natural Form adjustable bed for your home could significantly improve your sleep through much-improved comfort.
