Volunteers wanted to sleep on a special mattress for 8 weeks.

Investigating the effects that active mattresses have on health.

Plymouth Marjon University is calling for 6 more healthy volunteers of between 50 and 70 years of age to sleep on an active mattress overlay within their own homes. It is envisaged that participants will experience mild improvements in circulation, and that this may lead to an improvement in general health and wellbeing.

The investigation will require participants to sleep on an active mattress as per their normal sleep regime for a period of 8 weeks and to attend two check up sessions at the University.

Please note that persons with an underlying health condition must regretfully be excluded from this study.

We are holding an open event from 15.00 to 17.30 on Tuesday 12th December at the Plymouth Science Park, Derriford.


Come along to meet the lead researcher, ask questions and see the active mattress .
